J.D. Robb, a.k.a. Nora Roberts,
Creation in Death
(Putnam, 2007)

This is the 25th (30th if you count all the novellas in between) book in the In Death series by J.D. Robb (a.k.a. Nora Roberts).

The year is 2060 and Homicide Lt. Eve Dallas of the New York Police & Security Department is called to the crime scene where a young woman was murdered and left in a local park. Eve immediately recognizes the torturing signature of a killer she investigated nine years before when she was just a rookie and still partnered with her mentor and friend Captain Ryan Feeney. This is a killer they dubbed The Groom and were never able to apprehend.

This is a case that brings back a lot of memories, emotion and anger from everyone on the NYPSD. Eve's husband Roarke becomes involved in helping with the investigation when it is discovered that the victim is one of his employees.

There is a reason I rush out to the bookstore on the release dates of all the In Death books. J.D. (Nora) consistently creates spellbinding and suspenseful stories with the most charming characters, and this book is no exception. Her villains wheedle their way into your mind because they are so deliciously evil; you can't help but be fascinated by them. Her books never cease to entertain and delight me, and they are stories I read over and over again. This was an excellent addition to an ever-fabulous series.
