In the latest from the #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon, Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law-including the ones sworn to uphold it.
Detective Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a senseless crime-an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. This is Peabody's first case as primary detective-good thing she learned from the master.
But Peabody soon stumbles upon a trickier situation. After a hard workout, she's all alone in the locker room when the gym door clatters open; and-while hiding inside a shower stall trying not to make a sound-she overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. It doesn't take long to realize they're both crooked-guilty not just of corruption but of murder. Now Peabody, Eve, and Eve's husband, Roarke, are trying to get the hard evidence they need to bring the dirty cops down-knowing all the while that the two are willing to kill to keep their secret.

1 . Best In Death Ever!
Posted September 02, 2011 by In Death Fan , LakewoodThis has got to be my favorite In Death book in a long time! I've never been disappointed or let down with any of these books but this one was exceptional! The intricacies of the story as well as the multiple points of view keep the reader engaged. It was great to get more of Peabody's view and more from the less prominent characters. Can't wait for the next!
2 . A very enjoyable story
Posted April 20, 2011 by Rae , Long BeachI have read each of the in death books multiple times and this is my new favorite. Indulgence was a bit of a disappointment, so it was refreshing to see Eve and Roake back in fine form. The storyline was unique, the characters well developed and it kept you turning pages until the end. In fact, it ended too soon. Very much looking forward to the next book.
3 . Loved It!!
Posted March 18, 2011 by Lynn , Ontario, CaliforniaI have read the whole series and always await the next with no little patience and Treachery did not disappoint me!! I have loved the Death series from the first because of how Eve doesn't think like a traditional women. I never have and that appealed to me from the first. To see how she and Roarke have eased into a comfortable, yet never boring relationship and have each other to depend on is romantic without being too smooshy.
I truely enjoyed that this was a personal case that made Eve question herself and her leadership and training skills, as well as seeing her look at and evaluate all of her relationships and not from a place of fear, but one of protectiveness. The character is growing and I love the direction Robb/Roberts is taking it. I hope that someday Eve grows enough to actually be ready to have a child of her own; facing that challenge with all the same fears and doubts all women who have careers and children face.
This book in the series was very different from the previous, but it has to be in order to keep the readers interested. Can't tell the same story over and over and this was a wonderful change in direction, which is necessary to keep us anxious for the next book in the series.
I am already waiting for the next in the series to see how this cast of charecters are doing!
4 . Robb hits a home-run
Posted February 28, 2011 by Lizabeth S. Tucker , Port St. LucieThis is Nora Roberts at her best. There is no mystery about the villains of the piece, just how Eve and her close-knit team will bring them down. Outing crooked cops goes beyond the Blue Line, so there may be future repercussions. Romance is present, from Eve and Roarke to Webster's new lady friend. My only complaint might be the lack of time for many of the characters that I've come to know and love over the 40 book run. Maybe next book.
5 . Treachery in Death
Posted February 25, 2011 by sopapia , rusThis is one of the best books by this author I have read. It was hard to stop reading once I'd started.
