Divided in Death, by JD Robb

>> Tuesday, October 12, 2004

Divided in Death is the latest in JD Robb's Eve Dallas series to be released in paperback.

Reva Ewing was a former member of the Secret Service, and now a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises—until she was found standing over the dead bodies of her husband, renowned artist Blair Bissel, and her best friend. But Lieutenant Eve Dallas believes there was more to the killing than jealous rage—all of Bissel's computer files were deliberately corrupted.

To Roarke, it's the computer attack that poses the real threat. He and Reva have been under a code-red government contract to develop a program that would shield against techno-terrorists. But this deadly new breed of hackers isn't afraid to kill to protect their secret—and it's up to Lieutenant Eve Dallas to shut them down before the nightmare can spread to the whole country.
After 19 books (not including the one I haven't read yet, which is still in hardcover), plus two short stories, this is a series that I'm still enjoying. This one's not my favourite, not even close, but it was a solid entry in the series and I enjoyed it. My grade: a B+.

The mystery? Ok. Not boring, but not particularly interesting either. As always, an excuse to visit with these characters I'm so fond of. This is what I read the In Death books for, the interactions between the characters and the buildup in their character we get from book to book.

What engaged me the most was Eve and Roarke's personal stuff, also as always. They face some trouble here, an instance when their outlooks on life and the way they each think things should be dealt with clash. It was an important thing for them to solve, and I liked the way it was done.

I hope I can get a copy of the next quickly!
