Review | Devoted in Death

Devoted

amazon barnes & noble Goodreads

It’s a new year in New York city, and two star-crossed lovers have just discovered an insatiable appetite…for murder.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas has witnessed some grisly crimes in her career and she knows just how dark things can get on the streets. But when a much-loved musician is found dead, Eve soon realises that his murder is part of a horrifying killing spree, stretching right across the country.

Now the killers have reached New York, and they’ve found themselves another victim. Eve knows she only has a couple of days to save a young girl’s life, and to stop the killers before their sadistic games escalate. Eve’s husband Roarke is ready to put his brains and his considerable resources behind the search. But even as the couple works closely together, time is running out…

Hott Review of Devoted in Death:

I absolutely wasn’t prepared to read Devoted in Death. I’ve always thought the Bonnie and Clyde notion was (mind you I’ve just heard rumor & never actually read historic accounts) a romatic adventure. Devoted in Death took that from me an replaced it was a healthy dose of realism mixed with a horrific tale of crazed criminals.

Devoted in Death felt more graphic to me, but maybe because the last few books in the In Death series have been a bit more character driven and less grusome. However, I don’t know that it could have gone another way and been as impactful.

If you’re looking for an enthralling tale of murder and psychosis, as well as an amazing look at friendship, love, and leadership Devoted in Death is the book for you!

Did you notice I pulled the non-US cover for Devoted in Death? I had to. It’s SO perfect for the book. I like that the US covers are all similar but, it’s getting old & I absolutely love this one!!
