Book Review: Midnight in Death



Midnight in Death by J.D. Robb

I've never read any of the "In Death" series by J.D. Robb (otherwise known as Nora Roberts), though many of my patrons rave about the series.

This is a police procedural series, set in 2057-2058, and while there are a few nifty technologies included, not enough to make you feel like you are in a Sci-Fi novel. I liked the characters well enough, and the mystery was intriguing but wrapped up neatly by the end.

I'm not sure I would clamor to read every title, but I can see a certain appeal to fans of Roberts' style of novels.

Note: I listened to the audio edition, narrated by Susan Ericksen. Her reading was well done, and she did the various accents well. This is a quick listen, only three discs, but this is one of the shorter stories in the series - originally part of a collection.
