One person found this helpful. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. Fantastic book well - I listened to the amazing Susan Erickson but that counts! In the back of my mind there were unanswered questions about Dallas that I figured would be explained eventually, and this book did it in a major way! I think the departure from the "In Death" titles was deliberate- as this way a major turning point for Eve, and the title is very apt.
I very much enjoyed this one, and I expect we'll see some changes in the upcoming books as I expect the character will continue to grow and incorporate some changes in her life. And what Roarke did for Eve with Galahad. And can I just say I love that cat! After basically years of seeing this series around and reading about this mystical Roarke, I gave in and decided to read the In Death Books. It was quite an undertaking, since when I started there were 33 books already released in the series, not counting short stories and novellas. Besides that, deciding to read this series was a big commitment in two fronts.
One, I simply had to by 33 books and secondly, I would not be reading anything else until I was done. That's how psychotic I can be when it comes to book series. December was when my journey began and by February I was done and now there is NO turning back. I not only obviously love Roarke, but I love Eve and all the secondary characters that make up this great story as well.
Yes, I have become irritated with Eve at times, but I adored being able to see her grow throughout the series. It has been quite a ride, but one I will never regret hopping aboard. This series is a great mix of mystery, police drama and romance. I love every aspect of it, from the near futuristic setting, to the way J. Robb writes her prose.
If there is one thing that bothers me, is that considering the series has 35 books published, the span of time that has passed is very short and I wish the lapse between books was a bit longer. But if you read the books throughout a longer period of time, it won't really matter, but reading them so close together made me wish for that longer lapse.
Eve is such a complex character. All that she has been through has made who she is, but her story is not less heartbreaking because of it. For that matter, so is Roarke's and the fact that these two found each other is nothing less than serendipity. They need each other and I am sure they would never have grown to be who they are in the series by book 35, if not for each other's presence in their lives. Not to mention the "family" they have built with their dear friends. One of the biggest issues brought up in this series by J.
Robb, is the Nature Vs. It always makes me think and it is very satisfying to see these people that could have become something very wrong, rise above nature and blood, to become amazing people. On the crime fighting aspect of the series, I find that Robb uses two types of narrative. Sometimes she carries more of a "Monk" style, where the perpetrator is clear if not early on, but soon. The other one is where we get a punch in the face when we finally find out out who it is. The first few books might not compel you completely, but keep reading!
You won't regret it! Also, Issac may be hiding out in Dallas, Texas. Eve once lived there as a child and was left by her mother who in turn was horribly abuse by her father, who she killed in self-defense as he tried to rape her again. Whenever young girls are involved and brutalized by some monster, Eve takes it personally because she was once in their shoes. I was so hoping New York to Dallas would hit one out of the park for me.
I did find the case and the non-stop action from Eve and her crew to be on the edge of your seat material, but it feels as if it has that been there, done that feeling to it already. The way Eve and Roarke interact has become routine, even down to the minimal love scenes they share together. At a certain point I felt as if these two were tired about everything and they need to get away to regroup.
The big twist that should shock failed for me.
The way it was revealed was poorly executed and comes out of the blue, more like a throwaway. I felt as if I missed something, as if Robb left out a few important pieces that should have been introduced earlier on. This spoiler really closes up so many loose ends for Eve and her past, and I wonder if perhaps Robb perhaps is decided to finally end this series.
New York to Dallas was more ho hum reading with a few zingers here and there, but not enough to keep me reading this series indefinitely. View all 13 comments. I am not going to go into the story but just say a few things about the series, it has become really predictable not that, that is bad but I would like to see Eve evolve.
Things there in all books: Eve getting so into a case, that she doesn't eat, sleep and acts like a boor and has dreams about her past mixed up with the victims, as usual Roarke is there, feeding her and forcing her to look after herself, even siccing Mira on her when needed.

We have the customary fight for no reason when Even tri I am not going to go into the story but just say a few things about the series, it has become really predictable not that, that is bad but I would like to see Eve evolve. We have the customary fight for no reason when Even tries to piss Roarke off. I do believe the series has to end because these things have become so noticeable to me. All these plot elements are utilized each time. It is good Eve is a dedicated cop but she should use some of that for her personal life as well instead of letting Roarke do everything.
Rest all what happened in Dallas was something I was expecting, the whole finding out the guy procedure was so predictable even the reactions of all the characters. View all 5 comments. Sep 02, Ann Lou rated it it was amazing. My emotions is all over the damn place. I raged, I cried, I laughed and cried some more. One of the best couples I've ever read and I've read plenty.
Anyhoo, an old adversary of Eve is back wanting revenge. A predatory and violent pedophile, a narcissist with the ability to assume numerous personas. Eve has to go back to Dallas and confront her sickening past once again. It was heartbreaking but she had to go through with it. But what's the same is we work it, we do the job, and we take risks the job demands.hoa10gio.com/includes
New York to Dallas
Even when you were helpless they couldn't destroy what you are. You're my miracle, and you'll never be anything else. I adore him for it. Feb 11, Ira rated it it was amazing Shelves: This one a heavy one, five - gut wrenching - stars! We knew the tragedy of Eve's childhood and now she have to face it again head on. Did you see Roarke reactions to everything what happened to Eve?
Well after all her miserable childhood life, Eve totally deserved Roarke!! Simply the best in the series so far! Note, this is a very emotional read, the audio version is better with this one, the meeting scene in Dallas when Eve lead it is absolutely awesome!: But when it counts, down to the core of it, I believe we do exactly that. Aug 31, Mei rated it it was amazing Shelves: What's amazing in this series is the fact the even if the story is a very heartwrenching one, like here, there're cleverly inserted humorous moments that make it bearable! Here Eve must confront her horrible past in the very city she's named for and where everything strated.
But, Roarke is there for her now! Apr 18, Diane rated it it was amazing. I can't say enough good about this book on so many levels. Robb really outdid herself - 2 books in a row! The first time I read this book, I actually thought - Okay, this could very well be the end of the series because it wraps everything up quite nicely. But then I thought, No, there will always be serial killers, stuff that blows up, devious minds, and twisted stories! This is right up there in my all time favourites of this series - love, love, love this book.
Meeting Eve's mother, as hor I can't say enough good about this book on so many levels. Isaac MacQueen is so twisted and sick - a villain you love to hate period! He also gave Eve the chance to finally put her memory of her father to bed and be done with it. Lots of extra characters in this book, but not so many to bog you down.
Really liked the twins - strong women who have been through the worse you can imagine as young girls. Loved seeing Eve stick it to the female Fed: Two really big thumbs up and 5 very large stars for this book! View all 3 comments. Jun 28, Marisa rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was one of my favorite books of the In Death series.
It's the culmination of everything Eve and Roarke have done in their relationship up to this point. With tender moments, agonizing soul searching well as much as Eve and Roarke can agonize , and a vulnerability that express why and how these two love each other; combined with the crime procedural we've come to expect in an In Death book; J. Robb masterfully gives us the exact right blend of both the inner workings of a loving comm This was one of my favorite books of the In Death series.
Robb masterfully gives us the exact right blend of both the inner workings of a loving committed relationship AND the inner workings of a depraved mad man. It's not easy for an author to continue to play out what happens in a relationship with two long standing characters; but here we find the author digging deeper into why Roarke and Eve love each other and how they continue to sustain that love. Jan 24, Tiffany PSquared rated it it was ok Shelves: Talk about jumping into the deep end of the pool! This was my first Eve Dallas book and I opted for the audiobook.
I know, I know. It was a crazy place to start a series I don't know if it was the ardent delivery of the narrator that alienated me from Lieutenant Dallas - I do love a good strong female lead - but I felt like maybe she was a bit too strong.
Mira - that they we Talk about jumping into the deep end of the pool! Mira - that they were committed to loving her and dealing with all of her I'm not sure if I'm interested at all in reading any more of this series. The story itself wasn't lacking any of Nora Roberts' J. Robb's usual characterization, build, or excitement of conflict resolution. The villain was sufficiently evil, his crimes sufficiently atrocious, and the resolution sufficiently thrilling. The sole reason I'm opting against continuing the series is simply that I found myself unable to relate - in any way - to the MC.
I just couldn't get into it. I'll stick to my Nora Roberts romances, thanks! Sep 10, Patrick rated it really liked it. Eve, Roarke, Peabody, McNabb etc. Dallas is all too familiar with this cave dweller, having been almost killed by him years earlier when she rescued a den full of young victims who had been tortured repeatedly.
Now, after years of confinement, Issac McQueen is intent on adding to his collection of young girls, kidnapping an The usual suspects Each child bears a numbered tattoo, marking her for life as part of his collection—and reminding each young victim forever of their horrific ordeal. He provides Dallas with every creature comfort and electronic advantage available. Together they form a formidable team, able to gather and analyze intelligence like no other sleuths can. When Eve was just a rookie, she had an encounter with Isaac McQueen, a man who was a murderer and pedophile.
When McQueen escapes prison and returns to his apartment again, seeking Eve out, she has no choice but to return to her past. The pages of this book are super intense and I had the creepy crawly feelings all throughout as I read it. There was something very scary and disgusting about McQueen that I really, really hated and as a result, he made for a very good villain.
Like I mentioned before, this book is by far the most intense book in the series. I read it quickly, drawn in by the writing and the intense mystery plot. I tend to have a lot of favorite books in this series, but I would definitely say that this particular one is probably in my top two. What an intense, emotional and at times gut-wrenching rollercoaster! And I loved it all - because I knew the good guys would win in the end.
Loved the relationship between Roarke and Eve, always, but especially in this one - you could feel the depth of their love. I was relieved and happy with the lighthearted ending after that ride! Susan Ericksen's narration really brought this story to life. She is always wonderful and this audio just reinforced my opinion! It is interesting that JD Robb decided to title this one so differently from the rest of the In Death books. After reading it I can totally get on board with the name change because it felt a little out of step with the others.
I felt a lot like Eve did while reading this book. She wasn't in her familiar place, with her familiar people doing her familiar things. She had to set up her board in a Dallas hotel room, she could only intermittently connect with her regular posse. The Dallas E-detectives were a little off, the bull-pen at the Dallas precinct was too clean, the people too shiny.
They smiled a lot. It all threw her off her stride. So in reading this book everything felt a little off. The police procedural aspect of the book was still very solid. But I can't give this book higher than 3 stars for a couple of reasons. First, again with the psycho-sociopath with mommy issues. And they all somehow get focused on Eve.
I know that is is a small world after all, but Eve's world must be the size of a pin given how many people she manages to meet up with who have connections with each other and to her. I remember feeling major skepticism when it was revealed that Eve's father and Roarke's father had known each other. But I shrugged it off and went with it. This time though my reaction was 'oh for the love of It feels like some long-hanging dangly threads are being snipped. But if this plot twist means that the long-standing issue of Eve and her nightmares and her not-quite being able to get over her hellacious childhood can finally be put to rest then I'll live with this one too.
I hope that is what this means. I hope this is the final step in Eve being able to finally, fully heal. So while I liked the police procedural aspect of the book, I wasn't crazy about the personal stuff in this one. Still, it is a must read for devotees of the series. Jan 24, Jane Jago rated it it was amazing. Awaiting the new In Death due out in February. Discovered this one had passed me by.
It moves Eve out of her comfort zone, and awakens some demons from her childhood. Jun 15, Lyndi W. I love the books where Eve really has to struggle with something because it means Roarke gets to go all alpha and knock some sense into her. I love all the books, what am I saying? But even though I loved this one just as much as the next, the shortening of "analysis" to "anal" drove me up the fucking wall. So for my own shits and giggles Here are some quotes: Get started on the anal. I would give this book six stars if I could.
Having said, while the writing and the characters are completely brilliant, and draw me into their lives, the content and the main perpetrator just left me feeling disgusted. The action spun through some twists and turns, giving some more details about back story, which just blew me away and left me gobsmacked, and then exploded into a delicious climax. I would have preferred to see more a resolution, but like always, can't wait to read more in this s I would give this book six stars if I could.
I would have preferred to see more a resolution, but like always, can't wait to read more in this series. An escapee pedophile and murderer that 12 years ago, rookie officer Dallas of the NYPD had brought him in, is now going after revenge against her. The similarities with her abusive past and this case is bringing out feelings and memories that had been buried all this time and that she has been fighting to overcome.
All through the previous books she learns little by little pieces of memory from the terrifying and abusive past of when she was a little child of 8 years and was found traumatized, broken, hungry and covered in blood after killing the monster who was her Dad. The unconditional love of her husband Roarke and the motherly love and understanding of Mira, the department psychiatrist and profiler, has been the catalyst to open like flower petals those new memories and given her a way of adjusting and the tools for learning to overcome that past. Isaac, the pedophile is using some of the knowledge he obtain in prison about her past to complete his new mission of revenge and keep going where he left off.
Using one of the victims from the past, he is able to demand that Eve return to the city where she was found as a child, Dallas, Texas, and where she had been raped, abused physically and mentally and used as a mark by her Dad. During the developing of the story her wounds are reopen and her feelings become raw, while trying to keep her sanity and strength to be able to do her job and save the victims that are hers now.
To top all, the partner that is helping this guy is someone very close from her past and has played a big part in her nightmares. Out of her comfort zone, it is important for her to grasp at anything that reminds her of who she is now and all that keeps her grounded, even away she uses her own people to help her along. This book brings out raw emotions, the power of true love and great detective work all at once in these chapters.
For those that follow the series you get a glance at the power that drives this detective to make her the best homicide detective of NYPD and get a deeper understanding of Eve Dallas the person. A very adsorbing and intense book, that pulls at the strings of your heart core and keeps you in constant expectancy of the outcome, all the way to the finish. In my opinion, this is one of the best installment, if not her best of the series, makes me wonder what J. Robb will bring next. Well folks, another installment the 33rd! Robb is going to be released next week.
This one is no exception! Dude breaks out of jail and Well folks, another installment the 33rd! Dude breaks out of jail and all hell breaks loose. One of the best things about the series to me is that the murders Eve is a homicide detective are grisly and realistic. In this case, we have a pedophile whose victim count reaches the double digits.
New York to Dallas (In Death, #33) by J.D. Robb
This time around, he is more interested in making Eve crazy than anything else. Pretty intense stuff too. Also, Eve has cops in Dallas working with her for the most part, so not as much with Peabody, Feeney or any of the rest this time around. I kinda miss having them around! Although, I am happy to say that you do get to witness Whitney giving somebody hell for their incompetence I never feel like the book is complete without getting to see him chewing somebody out and there are a couple of awww scenes where Feeney acts all fatherly towards Eve.
So all is not lost. Definitely another strong addition to the series! Definitely nice to have that development. In this book, Eve is trying to catch a serial sadistic rapist who broke out of prison. My heart hurt for Eve as she had to deal with horrific aspects of the case involving McQueen as well as her having to come to terms with her past. I definitely was emotional at several points during this book. There was a scene in particular that involved Galahad her cat that got me all teary eyed. I definitely didn't expect to get emotional over a scene with her pet!
