Review by Amy Martin, Fremont Area District Library Staff Member
Faithless in Death is the 52nd book in J.D. Robb's futuristic In Death series. In this book, Eve and her team are investigating the killing of a female artist. From the start, the facts don't add up, and Eve discovers that the woman who reported finding the body is telling lies. This starts a search for a killer with ties to a cult-like group.
One of my favorite things about this series is the friendships Eve has with her friends and team--especially with Peabody, her work protege, and Mavis, her best friend. Both women are completely different from Eve, and Eve struggles with working out how to deal with them at times because of her own haunted past.
Another favorite thing from this series is Eve's husband Roarke, who went from being a street rat in Ireland to running his own empire. Roarke and Eve fit so well together, even though he's been on the shady side of the law most of his life, and she believes entirely in the law and the shield she proudly displays.
Eve tries to always get justice for her victims, and she digs deep to accomplish that. In this case where they are investigating a single victim, she finds there are so many more that need saving and sets out to do just that. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
