Rapture in Death

Book 4

They died with smiles on their faces. Three apparent suicides: a brilliant engineer, an infamous lawyer, and a controversial politician. Three strangers with nothing in common--and no obvious reasons for killing themselves. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the deaths suspicious. And her instincts paid off when autopsies revealed small burns on the brains of the victims. Was it a genetic abnormality or a high-tech method of murder? Eve's investigation turned to the provocative world of virtual reality games--where the same techniques used to create joy and desire could also prompt the mind to become the weapon of its own destruction...

Book #1

I came across this book when I downloaded a file of ebooks. I had always heard about Nora Roberts writing as J.D. Roberts but never had the chance to get into her books. There are 33 books in this series so far. I plan to read them. I try to find an author who writes in sequence, like Janet Evanovich and Sue Grafton, James Sanford, and James Patterson to name a few. I have read all the books for all these authors. I just get into the series and as long as the main character is likable i'm hooked!

This is the first book of the In Death series and I thoroughly enjoyed it, I could not put it down. Murder mystery with a touch of romance, exactly what I love reading about.

Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant using her instincts to hunt for a ruthless killer. And she’s going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire—and a suspect in Eve’s murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own.
