“After the first few in the series I started skipping around and read what I could find so I ended up reading 'Fantasy' before this one and was actually for the first time disappointed with it. This one in terms of tech was better by leaps and bounds. I loved this book especially with Mcnab and peabody. The means of murder was fascinating and kept my interest with following investigation. Even better was that I found myself laughing several times as well as getting real into the investigation and understanding of how Eve saw things and was as frustrated as her. This book has definately become one of my favorites.”Haley O wrote this review Thursday, August 2, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“He spent three days holed up in his apartment staring at his computer screen.The headache was unbearable and it was getting worse. Finally when someone knocked at his door he picked up the baseball bat and started swinging. The first cop on the scene notified Eve Dallas who took over the investigation. There is nothing to explain the man's sudden rage or his death -- except the message on the screen- ABSOLUTE PURITY ACHIEVED.”Carol wrote this review Saturday, October 13, 2012.

“When Eve gets a call from Officer Trueheart saying he's killed a man while off duty, Eve knows there must be more to the story. After arriving on scene she discovers a message on the suspects computer stating that "Absolute purity has been achieved." Before Eve can figure out what's going on, an attack occurs on cop central leaving one of her own injured. Determined to figure out who's behind these attacks, Eve enlists her team, Roarke and the teenage Jamie to help solve the crimes that seem to be happening because of a computer virus. Will she be able to do it before anyone else gets hurt? One of the better in Death novels that, although is a bit easy to figure out, is still a great read and will keep you on the edge of your seat.”Azuree wrote this review Tuesday, May 29, 2012.

“This one, involving a terrorist group going after the scum of society, was great. The large conspiracy made it hard to track down the bad guy. ”Erin wrote this review Sunday, January 8, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Finally figured out where I was up to in this series and endeavouring to work my way through the rest. Read those before this one years and years ago (very pre-Shelfari) but always really enjoyed them. This one is no exception. Love the characters - wish I had a Roarke in my life (no offence Keith but .... sigh ....) and really like the 'future' lifestyle. Wish I had one of those drying tubes in my bathroom! Looking forward to the rest of the series now...”Kristen F wrote this review Tuesday, September 13, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Another great installment in the In Death series. This one focused much more on the crime than on Eve or her story and evolution but still a great read.
Someone has decidede to clean up the filth in New York - by "executing" criminals the law can't convict. Using a computer virus that makes the victim go crazy and self-terminate, the "Absolute Purity" group paints itself as the protector of "good" citizens.
But Eve Dallas knows better that vigilantes rarely are satisfied with just getting rid of the really evil, and since one of their viruses accidentally killed a fellow cop who was trying to figure out the virus, she's determined to find the Purity Seekers and stop them from being judge and jury.
This installment was really focused on the crime with little angst or drama for Eve and Roarke. But it was still a good compelling story - Nora Roberts knows how to draw in a reader and tell a great story - so while it was somewhat of a focus-change I didn't enjoy it any less than books where Eve and Roarke's relationship plays a key role in the story.”
