“A fabulous people story. The differences between good and bad were highlighted throughout this fast paced story. When Peabody overhears two cops talking while hiding in a shower she quickly realizes that they are "dirty cops" and she's in more danger than just being discovered naked.

“Just picked this up at Costco yesterday. Have to save this for a time when I require some "light" reading. You know, like on the beach. OK, couldn't resist. I had to read it, and now I'm almost done.”Erin B. wrote this review 2 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Another fun romp through the world of Eve Dallas and NY City in 2060. This time Eve and her cast of characters are after some bad cops. It turns out the daughter of a legendary retired police Commander has created her own little fiefdom inside the department. She runs it like a military operation and acts like a dictator. She has prestige, power, respect and a lot of money. This book was very different than the usual ones, because I knew who the target was of the investigation and eventual take down near the beginning of the story. The investigation built the case toward the bad cops, but there wasn't quite the intrigue as her other stories. I still liked it, because the investigation, wit and insanity was all there. I wasn't keen on the ending. It wrapped up too quickly and was a bit too personal.”Ron Arden wrote this review Monday, March 18, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“This was a grab you by the throat book. For the first time it's all about Delia Peabody, Eve's right hand gal, from the first to the last you really felt involved in this tale. This has to be one of my favorites in the entire series, especially because Delia gets to run point. This is one of the great books in the series, to me it's on par with Celebrity In death, everything about this one is great, from the plot, the pacing, the story, the character development, everything adds together to give a great story.
I loved that for the first time it wasn't about Eve and the bad guy, we actually had awesome character development especially for Peabody, I loved the story's pace and the reveal even though It wasn't much of a mystery. I was on the edge of my seat from the shower scene with Delia until the very end, I gasped when that Detective took a tumble, and was righteously angry when we found out that good cops had been killed, so this biotch could line her pockets. What I really want to know is: If the father is such a great cop how comes he didn't realize his daughter was a bad cop?? From beginning to the end I was hooked and I read this perhaps the fastest I have read one of these in a long time.
Cons of the Story:
Eve's hard on to keep the case especially when it's clear it belong to Internal Affairs, yes clearly there must be others who are dirty but you're not IAB turn it over or at least let them take the lead; and stop acting like your the ONLY cop in Central.
Eve really let her hatred for women come out in this one. Her passionate dislike for the female boss (yes I know why) but she really hated everything about the woman, the fact that she played the politics game, the way she dressed, the fact that she had a big office, or made her men actually dress like detectives. Everything opposite of Eve and Eve let it get to her. At the end, with that fight scene, even calling her a pansy for pulling her hair, but it was effective, it got you off her for a few minutes didn't it?? Le Sigh Eve, Le Sigh.
I actually enjoyed how it end Eve really proved herself I just love how well the book moved a definite must read. There seems to be a novella between Indulgence and Treachery and that story appears to well worth the read, Robb has never hinted so strongly about a story before, must go read those anthologies now then
Happy Reading my loves
“Long time fan of J. D. Robb aka Nora Roberts "In Death" series. I purchase when books are published for mass market. I adore Eve Dallas and Roarke in each adventure (book).”Nancy B wrote this review Friday, February 22, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I have to say this is one of my favorites in the "In Death" series. Lt. Eve Dallas' partner Detective Peabody is alone in the old locker room in the basement of the Police Central when she overhears two cops discussing what sounds like a scam being run in the Illegals department. Afraid of discovery, she hides in the back corner of the shower and waits. She sees the profile of one of the officers and hears the second called by name. They are discussing a murder that has taken place to cover up their activities. Shaking from the experience, Peabody contacts Eve and they head out to find the body using the information Peabody picked up.”Lee B. wrote this review Friday, February 1, 2013.

“Treachery and corruption are bad anytime and any place they occur but when they happen in your own "house" they are doubly bad. In this installment of the "In Death" series, Eve Dallas and her team must weed out the corruption before it spreads any further but what she finds is so much bigger than she ever imagined. I love all these books but I really believe this is the best one yet. ”Carol wrote this review Sunday, December 9, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
