Glory in Death by J D Robb

This is my read for the May TBR challenge, which for this month was to read something from your TBR pile that has some sort of military, police, etc theme or an ebook/book that originally appeared in ebook format. I went with the former!

Title: Glory in Death

Author: J D Robb

Year published: 1996

Why did you get this book? I have only recently read the first book in this series (Naked in Death) and as soon as I had finished it I put the next one on the request list.

Do you like the cover? I actually ended up with the large print version of the book which was published by Isis, so the cover above isn't the one that I got. Mine has a picture of a glass fronted sky scraper with the clouds reflecting in the window, and trees in front of it....pretty non descript actually.

Did you enjoy the book? Yes.

Was the author new to you and would you read something by this author again? The author isn't new to me, although this is only the second book of the In Death series that I have read. I haven't read all that much Nora Roberts either really.

Are you keeping it or passing it on? It's a library book so keeping it isn't really a consideration, but if it wasn't I would think I would keep it...along with every other book in the series.

Anything else? It's interesting to see the struggles that Eve has as she tries to deal with the closeness that has developed between herself and Roarke and her growing feelings. The mystery was interesting, and pretty intense, but really for me the highlights are the relationships, and the imagination of how the world is going to be in the future.

Rating: 4/5


  1. I love this series, Marg. It's not very often that an author can write a series about one person/couple and keep it fresh and alive. NR as JDR is amazing at doing this, however.

    I've read all of the In Death book and have yet to get bored with or irritated by them. I'm curious to see how you feel about the rest of the series.

  2. I have the next book on request from the library already so hopefully it will only be a couple of weeks before the next read! Looking forward to it!

  3. Ooooh are you in for a treat! We are up to what? 18 or 19 of the In Death books now and I am just as in love with them now as I was with Naked. In fact thanks to Angie W, I've started collecting them in hardcover. It's wonderful seeing the growth and changes the characters, Eve in particular go through.

  4. Wow! I'd never heard of the TBR challenge. Do they do this every month? I'm so in for June!

  5. yes they do it every month. Have to go and check what the theme is for next month

  6. I finally found this book to read. Hopefully I will find time to read it this weekend. Then I have to find book 3... why is it that second hand stores never have early books, it is always the later ones :(
