Throwback Thursday!

Throwback Thursday October 4th 2012

Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by The Housework Can Wait and Never to fond of Books.

It's the nature of book blogging to focus mainly on new releases, but there are thousands of great books out there that haven't seen the "New Releases" shelf in years. We hope to be able to bring attention to some older titles that may or not be at the top of the current bestseller list, but still deserve a spot in your To-Be-Read pile.

You don't have to be a book blogger to participate! You can put up a Throwback Thursday post on your non-bookish blog; or if you don't have a blog at all you can use the comments to tell us about a book your remember fondly.

My Throwback for the week:

Naked in Death 
by J.D. Robb
Published July 1995

In hardcover for the first time, here is the novel that started it all-the first book in J. D. Robb's number-one New York Times-bestselling In Death series, featuring New York City homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas and Roarke. 

It is the year 2058, and technology now completely rules the world. But New York City Detective Eve Dallas knows that the irresistible impulses of the human heart are still ruled by just one thing-passion. 

When a senator's daughter is killed, the secret life of prostitution she'd been leading is revealed. The high-profile case takes Lieutenant Eve Dallas into the rarefied circles of Washing-ton politics and society. Further complicating matters is Eve's growing attraction to Roarke, who is one of the wealthiest and most influential men on the planet, devilishly handsome... and the leading suspect in the investigation.


I read the first Eve Dallas book "Naked In Death" years ago and I was a instant fan. She's a homicide detective in the series who is the kind of person that will do everything to find the killer. It reminded me a little of Bladerunner with the futuristic aspects in the book, however most books in the future with all kinds of technology remind me of Bladerunner. Eve is working on the case of a senator's daughter who is murdered and her secret life is discovered. Through out the book Eve suspects Roarke of the murder as well as develops  feelings for him. It's a fast paced suspense thriller that draws you in till the end and your left wanting to read the next one. I've only read the first couple but I want to when I get time to read them all.
