Witness In Death by J.D. Robb
Witness In Death opens with Eve and Roarke in a private box at the theater on opening night for the latest, hottest production of , when a murder scene on stage goes awry and the illustrious leading actor is actually killed on stage with what was thought to be a "fake" knife. Everyone on stage, back stage and behind the scenes... not to mention the audience members... are suspects. Eve slowly begins to unravel the connections between the actors and stage crew, narrowing down her list of suspects in the murder of this illlustrious and talented actor who as it turns out isn't well liked among any of his peers.
I still haven't yet finished reading Witness In Death --June was a s-l-o-w reading month for me--but I have to say I'm really enjoying Eve & Peabody's ever developing relationship. There is most certainly a fun and humorous part to their relationship that makes me smile and sometimes even laugh out loud. There is also a mentor and student type relationship that is built on trust and acknowledgement of dedication, determination and skill as police detectives. But there is also a newer dynamic growing between them that runs deeper than their shared sense of humor and dedication to mentoring and assisting one another... and that is the dynamic of a caring, long lasting bond between them. Almost like sisters. Yeah, yeah, Eve has trouble admitting it and would probably be aghast at the use of such a familial word to describe one of her relationships, but it's true. They care about each other's emotional and physical well being and are even protective of each other. And even though Peabody seems to take on the role of the younger sister, she's also teaching Eve a thing or two about the whole love dynamic between people whether that love be between friends, family or love interests.
