In a time when technology can reveal the darkest of secrets, there's only one place to hide a crime of passion - in the heart. The first victim was found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas had no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provided Eve with a long list of suspects including her own lover, Roarke. As a woman, Eve was compelled to trust the man who shared her bed. But as a cop, it was her job to follow every lead, to investigate every scandalous rumor, to explore every secret passion, no matter how dark. Or how dangerous.… (más)

Lieutenant Eve Dallas crouched down beside death and studied it carefully.

Eve and Roarke are back again in a sequel to Naked in Death that thrills and steams just like it's predecessor.

Following the scent of blood and primed for the hunt, Eve gives us another glimpse at the detective we've come to love and cheer for. She's smart and driven. She despises politics and gossip and basically anything else that gets in the way of her doing her job and catching the killer as soon as possible. She's a bleeding heart that hides it so well that somehow only her close friends and colleagues and Roarke can tell.

She also developes her relationship and herself more in this book, which was encouraging to see.

Glory in Death gives us more murder, more (in)justice, more Eve, more Roarke, and more thrills. What Moore could we ask for? ( )

It has been a few months since Naked in Death and Lieutenant Eve Dallas is on the scene of another murder as Glory in Death. The year is 2058 and murder still happens in New York city despite genetic testing and catching those who might have hereditary traits predisposing them to violence. Guns are banned, but knives still work. Especially when used across the throat of the victim as in this case.

The dead woman was prosecuting attorney Cicely Towers. Her life ended on a street outside of a sex club and that same street is where her body lies as the rain comes down. Dressed for a meeting, she does not belong on this street at this time of night. Why she was there becomes soon evident though who did it and why remain elusive in the investigation.

A second murder is also clearly linked to the first no matter how others see it. Finding out the reasons why and the identity remain elusive as a media frenzy descends on the case. A media frenzy made worse by the fact that Lt. Dallas is dating one of the most famous men in the world, Roarke. Not just because of their romance, but the fact that Roarke was also well known to the victims as well as others connected to the case.

This second book in the series continues the turbulent romance between Dallas and Roarke as the police procedural moves forward. First and foremost, that is what this series is-- a police procedural. Decades in the future with all sorts of incredible technology, solving murder cases still comes down to shoes on the ground doing the legwork, asking questions in person, and catching suspects in lies.

The same issues detailed in my review of Naked in Death are very much present here. The constant shifting of pov, often in successive sentences in the same paragraph, continues unabated here throughout the entire novel. It can be a bit distracting until one gets in the flow of the story and the chase for love as well as a killer.

All in all, Glory in Death is a fun read and worth your time.

At least this time, with this murder, she knew he had an alibi. At the time Cicely Towers was having her throat slashed, Roarke had been fu***ng the hell out of the investigating officer.
