Présentation de l'éditeur

There is nothing unusual about billionaire Roarke supervising work on his new property - but when he takes a ceremonial swing at the first wall to be knocked down, he uncovers the body of a girl. And then another - in fact, twelve dead girls concealed behind a false wall.

Luckily for Roarke, he is married to the best police lieutenant in town. Eve Dallas is determined to find the killer - especially when she discovers that the building used to be a sanctuary for deliquent teenagers and the parallel with her past as a young runaway hits hard.

As the girls' identities are slowly unravelled by the department's crack forensic team, Eve and her staunch sidekick Peabody get closer to the shocking truth...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A very good JD Robb 3 mars 2014
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I loved the story, very moving and quite fast-paced though I found the end a little bit anticlimactic... but it was a page-turner, as usual.

Dallas embarks on a new mystery: she must find a serial killer who killed twelve young girls 15 years ago.
We get to meet plenty of new characters (I especially liked Quilla) and we learn some things about the past of one of Dallas' relations (which I really enjoyed discovering). But most of all I fell for sweet Mr Mira. ♥

3.0 étoiles sur 5 It's the same -- and yet it is still different 18 février 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I was waiting for midnight download because I'm in love with Eve Dallas. She's a heroine I see a lot of myself in - only I'm not a tough cop and I'm not married to a billionaire.
The thing is, as good as this series is, it's starting to fray at the edges. I'm not a conspiracy theory person - but I am starting to believe the rumblings. Maybe these aren't completely ghost written - but they clearly are being partially ghost written.
The mystery in this is fine - engaging, in fact. Sometimes it is hard to find a justifiable reason for Roarke to be involved - but that isn't the case in this one.
Something is still off, though. I started noticing it right after the Dallas storyline. It wasn't big things at first. Strained dialogue, weird word choices, forgotten story threads. If you've read the entire series, you know what I'm talking about. Some things just aren't the same as they used to be.
The truth is, an author has certain tells in their writing. Certain phrases that pop up edition after edition. That's not a bad thing. It makes the reader feel comfortable.
That's not here in the In Death series anymore. The prose is fine for 75 percent of the book and then a phrase is off. Then the dialogue crumbles.
It's just not the same. I sound like a broken record, I know.
I'm not ready to give up this series yet. I still love Eve. I am ready, though, for a return to greatness. I may be alone in that endeavor - but that is what I want.
I just want to add - after a few minutes of further reflection - that Eve's perfection when solving a case doesn't always ring true. She's an outstanding cop. She's a moral person. She has demons and she has a haunted past. At times, though, she seems infallible - and that's not always believable.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 only half way throuh - Who wrote this? 18 février 2014
Par Kate - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have read every book in this series and pre-ordered with great anticipation.

I am not sure what happened, but Dallas isn't really Dallas. Some of the language is the same but not used as Dallas would or even when it would be expected. Rourke is the same. Some of the internal thoughts ascribed to Dallas are things I cannot imagine her ever thinking, such as "her eyes were a dreamy shade of blue" or "Her face, dewy and smooth". These comments are ascribed to internal observations made by Dallas. The same Dallas who thinks having her hair trimmed is tantamount to world war 3. I am supposed to believe that Dallas thinks anyone has dewy skin when she is looking into the face of a potential suspect? Please...

The interaction between Roarke and Dalls is just off, wierd and disjointed. The story does not have the normal Roberts zing and flow.

I have laughed at the previous theory of ghost writers, but now I am not sure. So far, I am very disappointed. This book was either written by someone other than Nora Roberts or Ms. Roberts had a terrible year of writing.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Ghost written 20 février 2014

Whole book seemed off. The interaction between characters did not ring true. The worst was the fact that I guessed the whole plot in the first chapter. Eve just did not seem to be Eve. She did not act or sound like herself when she talked to Peabody, who also sounded off. I really believe that this book was at least partially ghost written with ms Roberts possibly adding small bits to it. It will be the last "in death" book that I buy and I used to love them.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A More Settled, Happier Eve 18 février 2014
Par S. Melo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
CONCEALED IN DEATH is the 38th novel in J.D. Robb's series following the cases of Eve Dallas, a lieutenant in New York in the near future. The novel begins for the first time from her husband Roarke's point of view. While in the process of beginning a tear down of the interior of an old building, two bodies wrapped in plastic are discovered. Soon twelve skeletons of young teenage girls are discovered. Eve and friends are soon engaged in discovering what happened to end these young lives. The investigation brings Eve into the world of street kids that touches some of her past, Roarke's and especially her friend Mavis's.

I enjoyed this book. For me the last few books have been uneven. Since NEW YORK TO DALLAS, there hasn't been a book that has really gripped me. This one doesn't rise to the levels of earlier books in the series. Since the resolution of Eve's past, much of the series angst and tension has dissipated. Eve feels more happy, more settled and more reconciled rob her past and her present.

The focus here is on the victims. As Robb does with most of the books in the In Death series, the theme of the crime is mirrored with our crew of regular characters. That works better here than in the last few books. Eve, Roarke and Mavis all recognize a kinship with the victims but the recognition is softer than some of the earlier books. Because the crimes are old, this has more of a cold case feel. The pave is slower, allowing for more contemplation about the connections and circumstances.

A longtime reader of the series will find plenty of references and continuity to revel in. We also have the chance to meet a new character, Dr. Garnet DeWinter, a forensic anthropologist, who seems destined to become a recurring character.

I would rate this book in the middle of the series. Not one of the best, but better than the last few.

I recommend it.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Not even close to Nora Roberts best work as JD Robb 19 février 2014
Par barbara clayton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Like lots of other people, I have read every book in this series. About every three years, I go back and reread the early ones. Unfortunately, I finished Midnight in Death just before this book downloaded to my Kindle so a much better book was fresh in my mind.
The dialogue is way off; both the spoken and the thoughts. By page ten it was obvious this was not Ms. Roberts work. There are so many mistakes in the history that I stopped a third of the way through the book and am deciding if I want to return for a refund.
The story premise is interesting but the book keeps side tracking me with all the mistakes. It is distracting to read a line and instead of it leading you to the next line, my thought is "Eve would never have said that ."
Being a longtime fan I am disappointed that Ms. Roberts has so little respect for her audience. At the very least, the editors at her publishing company should have caught some of the many historical mistakes. The author, whoever it is, is responsible for the poor dialogue.
There are 800 books in my Kindle after two years of ownership. I have read them all. This is the first time I have written a review as there are normally so many, any comment I might have has already been expressed. This time, I am just insulted and couldn't let it go.
