This didn't feel or read like a J.D. Robb book to me. Eve didn't seem like Eve. Like herself. And the same with Peabody.
It almost seemed to me like someone else wrote this book for her. A ghost writer or something. I've read all her "In Death" books and although I can't say I disliked this one, it just wasn't the same. I read them for the personalities of the characters, and they seemed like different people here.
