Treachery in Death is a great entry in the In Death series, due to it featuring one of my favorite elements that has recurred on occasion in prior books: a dirty cop. But I love that this dirty cop is very much a match for Eve in nearly every way, leading to one of the most epic climactic showdowns I can remember throughout my read through of the series thus far.
I also liked seeing a bit more of Peabody in a primary role early on with the initial minor case before the real intrigue begins. It’s wonderful to see her growth over the course of the last thirty-plus books, and while it does feel like the growth is a little limited at times for this group of characters, it’s nice to see her getting a bit more to do.
There’s not much else to say that I don’t keep saying in all of these reviews, that it feels rather redundant. Eve and Roarke’s development remains pretty solid, and I love the emotional support of the rest of the cast toward Eve, and Eve toward them. However, I will keep on raving about this series either until I’ve caught up and/or until I finally lose steam with these books (which I pray does not happen, because these books are amazing and anyone who hasn’t read them should read them).
