This was my foray into JD Robb's world with Lieutenant Eve Dallas and Rourke in her IN DEATH series. NAKED IN DEATH(Berkley, c1995, ISBN 0-425-14829-7) is set in New York City in the year 2058. I am not a fan of science fiction books or fantasy so I avoided these books although they were touted as mysteries. After reading glowing reviews consistently I thought I'd pick up the first one. Only twenty-two books to go! This book contained politics, prostitution(legal!), blackmail and murder. What more can you ask for?
Oh yes. You can ask for the first sentence:
She woke in the dark.
Look for more on the Eve Dallas/Rourke books here as I will surely be reading the rest of the series.
