I’ve been reading JD Robb’s IN DEATH series since the 90’s. DELUSION IN DEATH, the latest book in the series, was right up my alley – part psychological thriller with historical religious cults and a good dose of romance, to boot. One of the reasons why I keep coming back to this series is the freshness of each new case that Dallas & co must solve, along with the growing character development of Dallas, her husband Roarke, and their friends. I love continuously seeing how much Eve Dallas has grown as a person when she is able to confide in Peabody the news about her mother and the happenings in Dallas, TX (sidenote: read NEW YORK TO DALLAS if you haven’t). As gruesome as this case was, I perversely enjoyed reading the coming together of the case, and the slickness of the killer. Overall, this was a fun book to read on a hot summer day.
Overall: 3.5 out of 5 stars
