I finished this one early in the month and gave it four stars on goodreads. Yet when I sat down just now to write up a short synopsis and review, I practically forgot everything about it! I had to pull the book out to refresh my memory. Not a good sign, but I guess after a while, it's difficult to remember all the crimes and their book titles in this series.
In case your memory needs refreshing, in this book, Eve and her team are investigating the murder of a rich, successful, happy and very well liked businessman, Thomas Anders, who is found naked and tied to his bed with velvet cords and murdered without any signs of a struggle. The public and Anders' family and friends are shocked at the nature of the crime, but as always, Eve doesn't let "what it looks like" interfere with her quest for the truth. She thoroughly investigates every possible angle until she solves the crime and brings down the murderer.
Overall this is another solid installment in the series. There were actually a few things that happened in the personal subplots with some of the secondary characters that I just LOVED. For fear of spoiling it for anyone who hasn't gotten this far yet, I'm not going to mention it, but I will admit I got teary eyed in a few scenes. Even if I thought the case was drawn out and boring at times, these little pockets of awesomeness among the characters pulls the rating up to "very good." I can't help it! These characters are like friends at this point.
I'm slowly but surely plugging along in this series. I had hoped to finish reading Salvation in Death this week, but I was overcome with the impulse to catch up with Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series and decided to first go back to the beginning to re-read the first five books that I read back in 2007-08! Who does that?! Anyway, it got me thinking that I should get just as determined to catch up with the In Death series once and for all. No more slacking! One book per month at a minimum until I'm caught up.
This month's series discussion is very easy: I want to know where you are in the series.
All caught up? Or still plugging along like me?
