A murder in Washington Square Park takes Eve and Roarke away from a play they had been watching and to a killer whose history crosses with Roarke's. Lorcan Cobbe, as a boy, wanted to claim the name Roarke as he was convinced he was Patrick Roarke's son. When he sees Roarke at the crime scene where he has just completed his contract, his desire to kill Roarke and take his name is renewed. Eve begins to bring together her resources in order to find and capture Cobbe. One thing she learns is the Captain Feeney and Commander Whitney had a run-in with Cobbe years ago at which time he evaded their capture, making them almost as interested in seeing Cobbe brought to justice as Eve and Roarke are.
The strength of Shadows in Death is the personal connection to the case being investigated by Eve and Roarke. We know the killer right at the beginning of the book, so much of the rest is the procedural investigation which leads to family and friends, especially Summerset. The opening of An Didean is included in the story, which lends a balance between dark and light. However, the ending seemed somewhat anticlimactic and made me wish for a bit more action. Overall, though, this is another excellent In Death story, drawing the reader in right at the beginning and not letting up until the very last page. ( )

Better than the last couple. Highlights are some memories of Feeney and Whitney's time working together, and a trip to Ireland to see the family. ( )

I've read this series in the past though I am not sure I've read all of them--and I know I haven't read them in order. I suspect I've missed some because I don't remember Roarke's Ireland family who appear at the end of the book.

In this installment, we get a glimpse of Roarke's past--some of his growing up years and how he and Sommerset met. I don't quite know how Roarke found family in Ireland (probably in one of the books I didn't read).

I like the "family" idea--that all of Eve's friends consider Roarke as part of their family and are willing to put in overtime for him and put their lives on the line for him, just as they would for Eve.

WARNINGS: there are several sex scenes within the pages (so probably not appropriate for younger age readers). ( )

As usual, J.D. Robb excels with Eve and Roarke. Amazing to see the evolution of the entire cast of characters and the depth of their universe. ( )
