Murder. Not in the present, but from the past is what Lt. Eve Dallas is investigating. Though not as gritty as the previous "in Death" books the story developes and pulls you in. Robb keeps you guessing as to who, why and how the crime of killing and walling up young girls was committeed.
I enjoyed the character development that has been established from the first book. Eve definitely has a lighter spirit in this book, but the bonds of her marriage seem even stronger. Each book has let you see something special from the characters. More of the story on Mavis Freestone, Dallas' best friend, is revealed and some seedy characters are introduced. It should be interesting to see if forensic anthropologist, Garnet DeWinter continues in future novels.
If you have read the previous "in Death" books and like them, you should enjoy this one. Yes, it's not as gory and violent as some of the others, but the characters have become friends and family that you are glad to meet again. Enjoy this read, I did.
