Survivor in Death product reviews

The only thing that kept young Nixie Swisher from suffering the same fate as her parents, brother, housekeeper, and young sleepover companion was the impulsive nine-year-old's desire for an illicit orange fizzy at 2 a.m. Taking the bereft girl under her wing, Eve is determined to make sure the killers don't get the chance to finish their lethal job. From the first, however, the investigation is baffling. The Swishers were a nice family, living on the Upper West Side in a house with an excellent security system. Ordinary almost to a fault, they seemed unlikely victims for this carefully planned and executed crime. Valuables at the scene were left untouched, there was no sign of vandalism -- just the corpses of five people murdered in their sleep.

This was one of the shake-it-up books which breaks the mould a little bit. We have a family, murdered in their sleep, and a young girl who only survived because she wanted a late night drink. Eve and Roarke let her live with them while Eve hunts for the killer, which proves to be hard as they can find no reason at all for the murders.

One thing we have been shown through the series is that Eve is not someone who knows how to talk to or deal with children, she is awkward and never knows what to do. The great thing is that J.D. Robb doesn't suddenly make Eve all maternal and want a family, nope, she leaves Eve just as awkward around children at the end of the book as she was at the start.

It's nice to have a book that has a murder where they can't find a single thing wrong with the victim nor any reason as to why it happened. The young girl and her pain and sorrow is very touching and well written. All in all a good addition to the book series.
