Review | Treachery in Death

Treachery in Death

amazon barnes & noble Goodreads

In this thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon, Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law—including the ones sworn to uphold it.

Detective Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a senseless crime-an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. This is Peabody’s first case as the primary detective-good thing she learned from the master.

But Peabody soon stumbles upon a trickier situation. After a hard workout, she’s all alone in the locker room when the gym door clatters open; and-while hiding inside a shower stall trying not to make a sound-she overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. It doesn’t take long to realize they’re both crooked-guilty not just of corruption but of murder. Now Peabody, Eve, and Eve’s husband, Roarke, are trying to get the hard evidence they need to bring the dirty cops down-knowing all the while that the two are willing to kill to keep their secret.

Hott Review of Treachery in Death:



  • betrayal of trust; deceptive action or nature.
  • I don’t know when I’ve been so moved by a book. I laughed and I cried, sometimes on the same page! The very act of treachery is heart breaking but the way it’s handled, manipulated, and overcome in Treachery in Death was overwhelming.

    In its simplest form Treachery in Death is the tale of two lieutenants. One who plays by the rules and holds the line. Another who circumvents the rules and lost the line. It also gives many different leadership styles, some of which are sadly askew.

    I believe Treachery in Death is my favorite in the series thus far and must say, it’ll be one I read again.
