Rating: 2 / 5 stars
The 55th entry in the In Death series brings nothing new. Lieutenant Eve Dallas and billionaire husband Roarke stumble upon a naked woman while on the drive home from a social event. They track her address and discover the woman’s dead husband. Dallas works the case to capture a man who uses makeup and costume to give his victims the idea that he is a demon when he attacks them.
After fifty-five books, the series has become stale. Within the first couple interviews between Dallas and her suspects, I was able to correctly predict who the killer was. There was no significant character or overarching plot development. I surmise the only ones enjoying the latest entry are people who enjoy the consistent and unchanging elements in every book. The In Death series is dependable, in its own way. But for those craving an exciting detective mystery/suspense, I suggest looking elsewhere.
