About Devoted In Death:
Eve Dallas tracks a couple whose passion is fueled by cold brutalityin the newest crime thriller from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Obsession in Death and Festive in Death.

When Lieutenant Eve Dallas examines a body in a downtown Manhattan alleyway, the victim’s injuries are so extensive that she almost misses the clue. Carved into the skin is the shape of a heart—and initials inside reading E and D . . .

Ella-Loo and her boyfriend, Darryl, had been separated while Darryl was a guest of the state of Oklahoma, and now that his sentence has been served they don’t ever intend to part again. Ella-Loo’s got dreams. And Darryl believes there are better ways to achieve your dreams than working for them. So they hit the road, and when their car breaks down in Arkansas, they make plans to take someone else’s. Then things get messy and they wind up killing someone—an experience that stokes a fierce, wild desire in Ella-Loo. A desire for Darryl. And a desire to kill again.

As they cross state lines on their way to New York to find the life they think they deserve, they will leave a trail of evil behind them. But now they’ve landed in the jurisdiction of Lieutenant Dallas and her team at the New York Police and Security Department. And with her husband, Roarke, at her side, she has every intention of hunting them down and giving them what they truly deserve . . .

DEVOTED IN DEATH by JD Robb audiobook
My Thoughts:
This book showcases to us that there really are sick fucks out there! But I guess that's what crime fiction books does. But what makes this book stands out from the million other crime fic books out there is the fact that JD Robb can spin a tired old tale into something new and exciting! And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what I call a masterful story telling quality! As evidenced by the fact that this is now book 41 down the line and the staying power of the series is still going strong and true. As if compelling story telling quality is not enough, this book also have a substantial plot (like the rest of the books in this series), contributes to it's magnetic pull on the reader... Okay, so I am an old die-hard fan... so I tend to "fan rave". But that does not make what I said any less true.
