Connections in Death

I am always talking up this series as an excellent fun crime read, though one that doesn’t pull any punches. The deaths are gruesome, but the camaraderie between Eve and her deputy Peabody – and their whole team – and the excellence of Eve and her husband as a couple brings a respite to her cases.

This one is personal to Eve – a rehabilitated criminal is killed while trying to go straight, and he is the brother of someone she calls a friend. Solving his murder leads Eve to dealing with the worst gangs in futuristic New York, and her ass-kicking nature really has to reassert itself.

Do try this one – they’re all fine to dive into if you don’t know the series!
