Review of: Treachery In Death by J.D. Robb

In the latest from the #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon, Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law-including the ones sworn to uphold it.

Detective Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a senseless crime-an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. This is Peabody's first case as primary detective-good thing she learned from the master.

But Peabody soon stumbles upon a trickier situation. After a hard workout, she's all alone in the locker room when the gym door clatters open; and-while hiding inside a shower stall trying not to make a sound-she overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. It doesn't take long to realize they're both crooked-guilty not just of corruption but of murder. Now Peabody, Eve, and Eve's husband, Roarke, are trying to get the hard evidence they need to bring the dirty cops down-knowing all the while that the two are willing to kill to keep their secret.

My Review:

Is there anything any dirtier than a corrupt cop? Eve Dallas doesn't think so and neither does any of her crew including that gorgeous gizillionaire Roarke aka Eve's husband....It gets a little hairy for a while but with her new detective Peabody and the usual crew they get the bad guy or in this case a very smart but devious female. You know how some women think they can blink those eyes and wave around an I am the daughter of and get by with murder not on Dallas's watch. I give this one 5 croaks as I love this series. If you haven't read these books I highly recommend them....
