    Review of SURVIVOR IN DEATH by J. D. Robb (see her website)

    G. P. Putnam's Sons, February 2005

    Nixie Swisher only meant to get an orange fizzie--but being away from her bedroom meant that the assassins didn't see her, killed her family and her best friend, but left her alive. Now, police Lieutenant Eve Dallas has promised to find the men who killed Nixie's parents and her brother--and make sure they're locked away so they can never kill again. Unfortunately, it's harder than it seems. The Swishers seem unconnected to any sort of crime. But Dallas thinks it's personal and she keeps digging.

    Author J. D. Robb (Nora Roberts) continues her Eve Dallas futuristic mysteries series with an emotional and compelling story. Nixie's experience is a distorted mirror of Dallas's own experience--both found themselves covered with their parents' blood. Dallas is certain she would be no good as a parent, but a strange and disfunctional relationship still springs up between the two badly damaged females.

    Dallas's rich and formerly criminal husband, Roarke, continues to provide computer assistance, good food, and sex. Dallas's partner, Peabody, now has her own successful romantic relationship and is largely recovered from injuries sustained in their last adventure. But this time, the criminals are tougher than usual. They seem to have military training, top-notch equipment, and enough money to pose a serious threat to Dallas herself, as well as to the Swishers.

    Fans of the Eve Dallas series will definitely want to get their hands on this emotionally satisfying and exciting story.
