Book Review / Apprentice in Death by JD Robb

Lieutenant Eve Dallas returns in a fast-paced new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author J. D. Robb.
Nature versus nurture...
The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park’s ice skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be.

Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD, but never one like this. After reviewing security videos, it becomes clear that the victims were killed by a sniper firing a tactical laser rifle, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the locations where the shooter could have set up seem endless, the list of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer.

Eve’s husband, Roarke, has unlimited resources—and genius—at his disposal. And when his computer program leads Eve to the location of the sniper, she learns a shocking fact: There were two—one older, one younger. Someone is being trained by an expert in the science of killing, and they have an agenda. Central Park was just a warm-up. And as another sniper attack shakes the city to its core, Eve realizes that though we’re all shaped by the people around us, there are those who are just born evil...

What I loved about this story...  Despite breaking my cardinal rule over and over again with this series where I always start a series with the first book and never start half way through, this is a series you can definitely dip in and out of anywhere you want.  As with the previous two books in this series, I just loved dipping back into the world of Lieutenant Eve Dallas and following her as she investigates the murder of, this time, many people.  There's a sniper lose and its a race against time to find out who it is before he or she kills again.  What I love the most is actually the fact that we have the same characters popping in and out of each story so we get to know them but there is a different investigation with each book.  I loved the interactions between the characters, you can sense the history with some and the newness in others.

One of these days I will start from book 1 and read all of them but since this is number 43 in the series, I fear it may take me some time!!
