#1 New York Times bestselling author J. D. Robb takes us to the New York City of 2060, where Lieutenant Eve Dallas faces down a cop killer...Amaryllis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but she's been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she's taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn't just "one of us." Eve starts questioning everyone while her husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on the dead woman's life back in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this case and their own painful, shadowy pasts. The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve, containing Coltraine's guns, badge, and a note from her killer: "You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, I'll be sending yours to somebody else." But Eve Dallas doesn't take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that's a promise. From the Paperback edition.

I liked how they involved Morris in more of the book than usual. Also, Louise's bridal shower sounded fun. Would have loved to been there :) I think it is cool how they write about the investigation when one of their own is murdered.

I have read every one of the books in Robb's "In Death" series. It's hit and miss: most are good, some are very good and some are excellent. This latest one, Promises in Death is excellent.
The plot is believable, the villains have appeared before so there's some history and the comedy is fun but not forced (especially Louise's bridal shower).
Peabody gets spunkier in every book and there's a nice evolvement of yet another co-worker (Morris) who becomes part of Eve and Roarke's ever-expanding, extended "family".
Good detective work, great one liners and a satisfying ending.
What more could you ask for?

This whole series is fun. After a while it's a bit formulaic but I've enjoyed the main character's inner struggle with her past and her gradual adoption of kinship and love among her friends. The romantic liaisons are very harlequin romance but the action and suspense balance it well so that it doesn't become soapy. There's just enough future tech to qualify as Sci-Fi as well as action/mystery.
