Summary: Four successful people are killing themselves with a smile on their faces. It looked like a self termination, except for the fact to their family and friends say they were happy before. As Eve Dallas and her aid Peabody search a more technology aspect to find the answers.
Rapture in Death is very technology based which means we get some of Feeney, and watching Eve piss off as many people as she can. But hey that’s what comes with being a cop asking the hard questions to get the answers. Especially when all the deaths looked self inflicted. However even though they all come from different backgrounds and jobs they each have a mark that makes them connected. Also it helps that all the death’s didn’t happen in New York but different locations to throw off the connection.
Eve comes from a bad past, however you would never think of it as you watch her kick ass and take names. Eve is always cop first, and though she’s trying to be a wife and friend also you can always see the cop. One flaw I would say is that when someone personally hurts someone she considers a friend or family she become blind. In Rapture and Immortal in Death you see this happen and yet she falls for it instead looking at the evident. So even if she is proved wrong she will dig even if there dead ends.
Also its good to see Roake and Mavis the main to characters who seemed to get Eve some what not cop like. I enjoy reading about Mavis for she is a very colorful character total opposite of Eve but is a great blender. Then there is Roake who can read Eve better than anyone else can dream of. I love the humor and how he counters Eve into doing what he wants and for her own good sometimes.
What else can I say about this series that I haven’t before. I will say how glad I am there isn’t any rerun plots like some long mystery series take. Plus have really interesting characters. Rapture in Death is a mystery with the elements of who done it and why. With a pinch of back and forth for suspects. And a whole lot of Eve being pissed off and kicking butt.
So if you stuck to the end thank you. For this is a big rambling mess that am ending now with a question. Do you think Eve and Summerset will ever get along? If they do later on don’t spoil just leave a winky face to let me know they do later on in the series. thanks for reading until next time.
