Book Review / Leverage In Death by JD Robb

Lieutenant Eve Dallas puzzles over a bizarre suicide bombing in a Wall St. office building in the latest in the #1 New York Times bestselling series…

For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone. But after marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives, the headlines told of death and destruction instead. The NYPSD’s Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter—but what was the motive of the masked men?

Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn’t going to put the brakes on the merger. All it’s accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. Now, with the help of her billionaire husband Roarke, Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror, look at suspects inside and outside both corporations, and determine whether the root of this crime lies in simple sabotage, or something far more complex and twisted.

This series just gets better and better with each and ever book that comes out!  Full disclosure, I have not read each and every single book in this series but is something I am planning to do, so you do not have to read these in order or start from the very beginning to enjoy this series.  That is one of the great aspects of these books, you can just pick up one along the road, start and carry on from there, although I do suspect that I would get a lot more out of the story if I did start from the beginning as you have ongoing characters, main and side line, that feature in most of the stories and I would really like to know more about their background and how they came into this world.

The magic of this book and all that I have read in this series is the characters that feature in each and every story.  I have read them before, know what they have been to and with each and every book I read you see more of and more of those characters, their personality and how they interact with each other.   It really feels like a team that work together to help solve crimes being led by Lieutenant Dallas.

Can't wait for the next instalment!!!
