About the book:
Eve Dallas must face the impossible: someone has unleashed a computer virus that may be able to spread from machine to man.My Review:
Another wonderful installment in the Eve and Roarke series by J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts). It's been a little while between reads, but I always feel like I'm catching up with old friends when I come back to this series. I'm still working my way through it for the first time, trying to catch up, yet not trying that hard because then I'll have to wait until a new book releases.
I have been listening to these on audio from Audible and actually purchased the next two on audio also. The reader is magnificient. I love her different voices for the different characters and her Roarke accent is amazing. It's truly a joy to listen to and I can't wait to finish my current audio to get back to this series.
This book finds Eve matching wits against a group calling themselves The Purity Seekers. It's a group bent on righting the wrongs of the judicial system. They are punishing the ones that got away. Eve feels strongly about this since she is a police officer and she is supposed to get crime off the street, not allow vigilante justice. So she works hard as usual to find the perpetrators of this crime. With Roarke and her usual crew of Feeney, McNabb, and Peabody, Eve works around the clock to find out what is going on.
Great interplay between the characters in this one. Mavis only makes a brief appearance, but it's a memorable one. Eve deals with demons, Peabody and McNabb are just Peabody and McNabb, Roarke is as hot as ever, and Eve and Roarke are just amazing together. I always get sentimental when I read or listen to this series. It just seems to make me appreciate having a good man for a husband.
So if you want a book with suspense that keeps you hanging on until the end, this is a book for you.
If you're just starting the series, it doesn't really matter - you lose some of the backstory, but each book stands on it's own with a case being solved and enough backstory is brought in so you are not lost.
