In death bk 41. Piaktus, 2015. ISBN 9780349403731
(Age: Adult) Crime. thriller. Serial killers. Ella-Loo and Darryl are a couple on their way to New York, when they they find that they become addicted to murder after killing a motorist for his car. They manage to get away with multiple murders until they kill a much loved musician in New York and Lieutenant Eve Dallas puts together the clues that link this murder to many others across the country. Now they have taken another young woman and their grisly acts are ramping up.
Devoted in death is different in that the reader knows who has committed the murders and why they have been committed. Robb gives an in-depth description of the two criminals, how their minds work and what they do and all the suspense in the story is to be found as the reader desperately hopes that Eve and Roake can put together the pieces and rescue the pair's latest victims.
Not many authors are able to keep the reader's interest in a series that contains 41 books, but Robb manages to provide enough thrills, chills and suspense to keep the reader engrossed and look forward to another one.
