New York to Dallas by J.D. Robb

The number-one New York Times-bestselling author J. D. Robb presents an intense and terrifying new case for New York homicide cop Eve Dallas, one that will take her all the way to the city that gave her her name-and plunge her into the nightmares of her childhood.
When a monster named Isaac McQueen-taken down by Eve back in her uniform days-escapes from Rikers, he has two things in mind. One is to pick up where he left off, abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. The other is to get revenge on the woman who stopped him all those years ago.

When I first saw the title of this book, I thought the series was ending. I may have had a slight heart attack. After doing some research online, though, I found out this was not the case. Robb changed the title because this took us back to the beginning with Dallas and an extremely important case at the beginning of her career.
As always, this work in the In Death series was awesome. It was full of emotion, a little bit of history and insight into Dallas at the beginning of her career, and the reader can’t help but wonder where Robb is going to take the series from here. I find the characters in this series very relatable and so easy to like. Dallas is sarcastic, determined, hard working, and we discover just how deep her emotions run in this book. And then there’s Roarke. Who doesn’t want to find themselves a strapping Irish man? Lol. Never failing in his support, always there to help Dallas out, he displays a love I’m sure we all hope to find. It was a bit strange for me that Peabody and the rest of the gang were not as prominent in this book, but it worked with the story. It gave us a chance to get to know Dallas and Roarke even better and to see that they may have some limits.
I know that taking on the In Death series is a bit of a task with its 36 novels and 8 anthologies, but it is definitely worth it! This is not a series that gets slower and worse as it continues. It only gets better and better! If you have not yet tried this mystery series, you most certainly should! The first book is Naked in Death and I strongly believe that you MUST read them in order! Please let me know what you think! I give this book a 5/5.

Happy Reading!
