We’re huge fans of JD Robb’s Eve Dallas–Roarke futuristic crime series, especially as they just get better over time.

Connections in Death builds on Dallas’ ever-growing family, seeing familiar and beloved characters go through extremely challenging and bloody times only to rise stronger than before.

As always, Robb creates a fast-paced, detailed and carefully constructed plot, with lots of strands, which are, of course, brought together at the end.

It’s a masterclass in writing and yet another great novel showcasing Robb’ (aka Nora Roberts’) talent.

Highly recommended.
