Midnight in Death ~ J. D. Robb

Eighth story in the Eve Dallas series, this was a short story. I enjoyed it, it was a bit different, without loosing the over all feel of the series, as a lot of authors can do on short stories in a series. It did lack a lot of the depth of story and character that we are used to seeing in the series, but with a short story there just isn't space for it. We didn't have to figure out the killer in this one, it was given to us at the very beginning, they just had to find and capture him. Still was very enjoyable.

At about one third the way through the series, as it stands so far, I have come to love the way Rourke takes care of Eve, and am really hoping for some kind of of agreement between her and Sommerset, at least so that they don't totally hate each other, and I really do think it is in the works. He seems to be coming to care for her, at least enough to help Rourke in taking care of her. I have started on Conspiracy in Death, we shall see if it is as good as the rest of the series so far...
