    This episode of the "In Death" series was far quieter than any of the others. It doesn't have Eve kicking butt like she usually does. She is still working to solve the deaths of the victims, but because they have been dead for 15 years, it seems more detached. Concealed in Death is much sadder than the earlier books. Probably because the victims were children, who for the most part didn't have good lives to begin with. I did enjoy Eve's relationship with the Mira's.

Dennis Mira, is such a sweet character, and his fatherly personality is so charming. I am a big fan of J. D. Robb's work and look forward to the more from Eve and Roarke.

    It's a case that hits close to home. While tearing down a building (in order to create a center for at risk youth) Roarke takes out a wall, and revealing the remains of two bodies. Before it's done, they take the bones of twelve girl out of the building. Turns out the building has a past as a youth center about 20 years before. The family that ran it moved out, but still work at helping troubled youth.

The mystery is never as interesting as the effect on the players and this one hits home, with more than a few realizing just how lucky they are to have made it. In addition, one of my favorite character combos, Eve and Mr. Mira, have a few nice scenes together. A solid addition to the series

    A slightly different twist to this series. When Roarke begins demolition on a new purchase, he finds 2 sets of bones. After the building is inspected there are 12 sets of remains. Learning that the building was a home for troubled and street children, Eve begins to investigate the family who ran the shelter and continues to do so in a new facility. With minimal clues, she gradually pulls the story together. I always like this series. While the investigations are the centre, the continued develop A slightly different twist to this series.

    I've read at least 45 of the 51 (or is it 52) books in this series and I eagerly await each new release. I feel like Eve, Roarke, Peabody, et.al. are personal friends and I look forward to finding out about what is going on in their lives as much as I enjoy the complex murder mystery that Eve Dallas must solve. I hope Nora Roberts (aka JD Robb) never stops writing! I've read at least 45 of the 51 (or is it 52) books in this series and I eagerly await each new release.

    My sister sent this book to me but needed it back so I read it in a weekend. It was good enough for this kind of detective novel. The writing was good, the story okay, I guessed the killer early on, but not the end, so that was okay. This is a nice vacation read if you like detective stories. It was supposedly set in the future, but I didn't really get the feel for it. Maybe in some of her earlier books in this series, when they set it up.

    Eve's back and this time it's in a case that's very close to home. In the course of demolishing a recently acquired building, Roarke discovers two bodies wrapped in plastic and hidden in the wall. At the end of the day, the count is up to twelve, all identified as teenage females who have been behind those walls for fifteen years. Now it falls to Eve to find their identities and also find and bring their killer or killers to justice. This case reminds Eve of her past and the similarity to the exp Eve's back and this time it's in a case that's very close to home. In the course of demolishing a recently acquired building, Roarke discovers two bodies wrapped in plastic and hidden in the wall. At the end of the day, the count is up to twelve, all identified as teenage females who have been behind those walls for fifteen years. Now it falls to Eve to find their identities and also find and bring their killer or killers to justice. This case reminds Eve of her past and the similarity to the experiences of some of the girls and her investigation begins with the various occupants of the building, especially focusing on the shelter that occupied the building fifteen years ago. Digging to the backgrounds of the people running the shelter does not yield any clues and even though Eve is determined to get justice for the girls, she may have to give up on the case. However, help comes in the form of her best friend, Mavis. Turns out Mavis was well acquainted with some of the girls from her time on the streets and she provides Eve with the connections that help solve the case. CONCEALED IN DEATH was more laid back than other books in the series and highlights the fact most police work involves research - following leads, running searches, interviewing witnesses and so on. There were no bad guys to chase and take down here and it made for an interesting change of pace. I've got tell you, I was a little bummed that there was going to be no take down of a bad guy. What can I say? I live vicariously through Eve Dallas! Once again, we see Eve stepping away from the work to enjoy her time with people in her life, especially her husband, Roarke. She is getting comfortable with expressing her feelings for him and I just enjoy every personal moment they share. Some of my other enjoyable moments include the times she spends with the Miras, especially Dennis and her crush on him. The end was bittersweet for me. I found myself wondering if there was enough justice for those girls.

    This is the 2nd time around reading this book. I'm not an impartial reader of J. D. Robb. I love all of her books and highly recommend all of the In Death Series starting with Naked in Death. You want a kick ass woman? Eve Dallas is your girl. You want a good murder mystery/future police procedural, the In Death Series should be a go to read. This is the 2nd time around reading this book.

    This book is darned interesting. As readers we're fascinated by what writers have to say about their work. These interviews provide glimpses of how they think as well as their individual works and what elements shaped them. https://salenhanh.com This book is darned interesting.

    This was another great Death book. I was not able to get even close to figuring it out. Loved the new character of the ore sic anthropologist. Maybe she will show up in more books. It was a nice twist for Roarke to be the one to find the body first. Eve & Peabody are still great together. In the foreseeable future I would love foe Eve & Roarke to have a baby. Even though she once again with Bella says she isn't good with children. But I think she would be a great mom. This book will draw you in This was another great Death book.

    The strong premise is relevant to present-day elements of urban revitalization, troubled youth, and the social hierarchy. Although the mystery is easily solved long before the conclusion, the crime-solving steps framed by the deep interpersonal relationships between Eve, Roarke, Peabody, etc. make Concealed in Death is a cozy entry in the series. It's not gruesome like Thankless in Death. The strong premise is relevant to present-day elements of urban revitalization, troubled youth, and the social hierarchy.

    Robb has good books great books and wonderful books. This one is a mix of all three. Instead of Eve going in with guns blazing, she must rely on thoughts and gut instinct as well as intuition. I have everything written as Robb and look forward to the next book. For those who prefer the action books, the first chapter mahes this one look promising.

    There is always something comfy and cozy about reading a detective novel that has characters you are familiar with and feel like friends....Eve Dallas is the detective in this series...and along with hubby Rourke solves a gruesome serial killing....Easy, enjoyable read.
