Brotherhood in Death – It’s What We’re Reading


April 2016

A monthly offering from Drexel Library’s staff about the books we’ve read.

Brotherhood in Death

Brotherhood in Death
Robb, J. D.

When a number of wealthy and influential men begin disappearing and turning up dead with their bodies exhibiting signs of extreme, sadistic torture, New York City’s top homicide detective becomes involved in a bizarre murder investigation when the first of the victims, a former U.S. senator, is the cousin of a very dear friend.

The vicious nature of the murders reveals a series of insidious crimes dating back decades to a time before Eve Dallas was born, and points to the underlying reason for the horrific murders. A reason that hits very disturbingly close to home for Eve Dallas.

Brotherhood in Death is the 53rd book in the “In Death” series written by prolific romance writer Nora Roberts under the pseudonym J.D. Robb. Unlike the other books in the series where you are able to get into the minds of various characters and know how they are feeling and what they are thinking, Brotherhood in Death, lets you into the mind of just two characters.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas, heads a group of homicide detectives and uniformed police officers within the NYPSD (New York Police and Security Division) in the year 2061. Dallas, the product of a severely traumatic childhood, is a by-the-book, tough-as-nails twelve-year veteran cop who doggedly pursues the worst murderers the city has to offer because she sees death as an insult and those who murder as perversions of the insult.

Eve is often aided by her husband Roarke, considered the richest man in the world with a questionable past, and a division of fiercely loyal and dedicated cops under her command. Eve Dallas spends nearly every waking moment in pursuit of her quarry.

Throughout the series, you get to know what motivates Eve and watch as she goes from someone who vehemently guards her private and professional life and can count the people she calls friend on one hand to someone who slowly and reluctantly falls in love and allows people into corners of her life she kept closed off.

Eve Dallas never had family growing up, but as her career takes its many twists and turns, she discovers a family she never knew she had.

Brotherhood in Death is in the Popular Reading section on the first floor of the Post Learning Commons.
