188 – Promises in Death (In Death #28) by J.D. Robb

Promises in DeathNo intro needed.  Here’s the Goodreads summary.

“#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.

Amarylis 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.

Dallas’s friend Chief Medical Examiner Morris and Coltraine had started a serious relationship, and from all accounts the two were headed for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that. After breaking the news to Morris, Eve starts questioning everyone from Coltraine’s squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve’s husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on Coltraine’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.”

Oooo! This one was really good! I definitely found myself tearing up at a few points because of who dies and the person/people it affects.

I really liked how the author weaved her way through the evidence and people to figure out who the killer was. Once again, my guess was wrong. I tend to pick the obvious choice which is NEVER the correct person.

Great addition to this series. Looking forward to the next one.
LOVE IT
