      One of the later books in the in-death series, Origin in Death again does not disappoint.

      In this particular book, Eve and Roarke are trying to unravel a case that may throw them into a debate against morality in the year of 2058.

      Although there is little action in this story, the plot is enough to keep you captivated. That is, if you like suspense and working your mind trying to figure out who exactly is at the root of the murders.

      While Eve is working on this case, her relationship with Dr Mira gets a little strained. This


      is perhaps one of the rare times when we see the 2 of them getting on each other’s nerves. However, the amount of work involved, as well as the character involved in the cases leads to exhaustion and as a result, tension rises. However, we also realise the depth of their affection for each other.

      Roarke’s relatives in Ireland is coming over for Thanksgiving. Here, we see how baffled he gets when trying to plan for this familial gathering. It is a first for him and even though he is ultra-composed in all situations, this is one which he ...


      • has no inkling on how to go about doing. Nonetheless, he is happy. And since he is, Eve is happy for him too.

        The action kicks in towards the end of the book when we see Roarke and Eve going in to ‘crack’ the case and apprehend the suspect, so to speak. They are up against an army of ‘people’ with dangerous weapons. However, they hold their own and though they suffer not-so-minor injuries, they manage to escape death. The last few moments before they escaped were really exciting.

        Eve’s sense of humour shows in this story and there

        are several instances when i read the dialogue between her and Roarke and laughed out loud. Good job there by Roberts, because usually, we only see Eve’s sarcasm. This one has added humour, both from Roarke and Eve, and we also sense their cheekiness too. It pretty cute i would say.

        Although this might not be the best of the series that i’ve read so far, it definitely ranks among one of the top. pick it up if you have a yen to try the series and it will keep your mind engaged trying to figure out the case.
