Calculated in Death - J.D. Robb *Genre* Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction*Rating* 3.5-4*Thoughts*Eve Dallas has been a favorite character of mine for awhile now as you can obviously tell since this is the 36th Installment in the In Death series and I don't plan on stopping any time soon. Eve is geared towards kicking ass and taking names and then having some romantic interludes with her ONE and only partner Roarke. She hasn't turned into a multi-partner slut bag like another series which I could name but won't.Robb doesn't disappoint in writing Calculated in Death with a very emotional and heart breaking opening scene and ends the book with a high tension collection of the bad guys. I think I would have liked Calculated in Death a bit more had we actually been a witness to The Icove Agenda's premiere since that's all anyone has been talking about for several books now. Instead, a pivotal final scene takes place in the movie theater where the movie is set to premiere, and Eve is once again thrust into the spotlight. Will Robb continue the storyline in Thankless in Death (In Death #37)? That remains to be seen. Will we ever actually get to see 2061? Again, time will tell.As always, I loved the interaction between Eve and Roarke (several steamy sex scenes), between Eve and Peabody (lots of snarky commentary and humor), and Eve's penchant for keeping things real by not falling into the lure of being married to a billionaire and lusting after cars, clothes, and shoes. I always enjoy having Mira partake in banter with Eve who she feels a definite kinship towards. I appreciate that Eve has learned to control her dreams and slowly but surely putting her past behind her. I like that Mavis and Nadie Furst continue their friendships with Eve who is a difficult person to hold down in one place.It's interesting that Roarke is the person who shoves Eve in the perpetrators way while trying to help her understand a complex world filled with crazy ponzi schemes, audits, hidden accounts, and people who try to do anything to skirt the law. I'm sure Eve would have figured it out sooner or later like she always does, but it just goes to show you that Roarke and Eve make a hell of a team along with Peabody, McNab, Feeney, Baxter, Truehart and a multitude of other tertiary characters.Thankless in Death (In Death #37) releases September 10th 2013 by Putnam Adult Published: February 26th 2013 by Putnam Adult
