LoveReading View on Promises in Death

Great escapism mixing crime with a futuristic world.  There are 26 (!) in the series, not all available over here yet but if you get hooked (which you should) then you have lots to keep you satisfied.  The central duo are strong characters but it’s the advanced technology that makes these such fun.  Here Eve has a new car which can move like a rocket and achieve a 15 ft vertical lift.  Her colourful clothes and hairstyle are well thought out and the plot is non-stop excitement.  With off planet venues from prisons to paradise, it’s “sheer entertainment” (Guardian).


Comparison: Unique but try her alter ego Nora Roberts or Christine Feehan and Tana French (The Likeness)

Promises in Death Synopsis

Every cop gets angry when a police officer is killed. And Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no exception. Throwing every resource into solving Amarylis Coltraine’s brutal murder, Eve encounters bitter opposition from Coltraine’s fellow officers, who are desperate to take over the case. But when Eve receives a strange parcel containing Coltraine’s badge and gun together with a note threatening the imminent arrival of her own ID, she knows the case has just got personal. Then a link to millionaire Alex Ricker, son of a criminal she had put behind bars, heats things up even further. Ricker was romantically involved with Amarylis - did she leak information to him and then have a change of heart? Eve must put herself in extreme danger to get to the truth . . .
