Reviews of Betrayal in Death (2001)
Review by johnafair (2008-05-18)
The Amazon.com review makes the comment that this is remeniscent of Moonlighting, which was one of my favourite shows when it was on. I was initially sceptical - much of the reparte between Eve and Roarke is a lot sharper and a lot darker than in Moonlighting. However, in this book the comparison is more obvious than in other books.
As is fairly common in this series, Roarke and Eve find themselves involved in the action from two points of view - the murder victim is one of Roarke's employees and Eve's the first cop on the scene, making her primary on the investigation. A bit unusally for these books you do actually get a feeling that you are in the future
