The “In Death” series brings more suspense and intense drama to the scene as we read another one of J.D. Robb’s masterpiece. The series has been successful so far not because of the flavor that we get relating to different personalities but also because of the facts that the stories are always complete. Moreover the climax flows nicely towards the conclusion with no breakage. Nothing has ever been left endless or incomplete in the chapters of this series. Each character and scene meets its fate fully in the ending scene i.e solving all the confusions in our mind.
This also tells us about the writer who creates suspense of the first rank but not confusion that would cause boredom in the minds of the listener. Susan Ericksen’s narration has also been crystal clear, the words are uttered in a clear tone and no haste is ever there that might make it difficult for us to understand the wordings.
Right from the beginning the quality of the narration is unaltered we can compare Naked in Death and Holiday in Death and notice that the quality is the same in the narration department. The Christmas list has been prepared in this seventh part but it’s not the naughty list, it’s the list of murders at the hands of a serial killer whom Eve wants to put behind bars.
The trouble is that Eve doesn’t know who he is but he has discovered the true identity of Eve and her husband which means that they could be the targets for him now. Now Eve has to find the killer before he can lay his deadly fangs on the couple
