Creation in Death product reviews

Eve has seen this crime scene before: the artfully arranged body of a young brunette, arms spread, palms up, body marked by the signs of prolonged and painful torture. Carved into her torso is the time it took her to die - in hours, minutes, and seconds. And on the third finger of her left hand has been placed a silver ring.

Eve is catapulted back to a case nine years earlier, when a man whom the media tagged The Groom put the city on edge with a killing spree that took the lives of four women in fifteen days. Eve and her partner Feeney, her friend and mentor, couldn't stop him before he disappeared, only to resurface in other parts of the world to kill and kill again. But now The Groom seems to have come back to where he started.

When it turns out that The Groom's most recent victim was employed by Eve's billionaire husband, Roarke, she brings him onto the case. A move that proves fitting when it becomes chillingly clear that the killer has made it personal. The corpse was washed in products from a store Roarke owns and laid out on a sheet his company manufactures. With the Groom's monstrous return, Eve is determined to finish him once and for all. Familiar with his methods, she knows that he has already grabbed his next victim. But his sights are set on the biggest challenge of his illustrious career - an abduction that will test his skills and that promises to give him satisfaction as he's never known. Time is running out on another woman's life and for Eve.

What do you get when you have a serial killer who wants a grand finale to his career? You have him return to the city he killed in, nine years ago, and have him make it personal with one of the people who worked the case and who he thinks will be his greatest challenge yet.

At first Dallas is simply working the case, but as she finds everything links back to her, including the items used to display the body, she realises that she is the final, ultimate target for The Groom. This of course creates a little tension with her and Roarke as she sets herself up as bait to try and catch him.

Quite a nasty character, but now in the series we get a little bit more from the murderers point of view, giving the book a fuller feeling. I like books that give insight into the killers mind and does so without taking the book over. There isn't a huge amount of character development in this book and that's just fine.

I have to say I really enjoyed the ending of the book, though I can't say anything for spoilers.
