IMITATION IN DEATH – VG
Robb, J.D. – 17th in series
Lt. Eve Dallas investigates the grisly killing of a New York City prostitute only to find a note signed "Jack," and that the murder was specifically planned to imitate Jack the Ripper. As she investigates, a second killing occurs, this time in the manner of the Boston Strangler. Aided by her faithful second-in-command, Peabody (who's nervously awaiting her detective's exam), and supported by her handsome husband Roarke, Eve scours both the country and the past for clues.
I feel the series getting better with Eve relying less on Roarke, but still having the wonderful dialogue, occasional hot sex, and usual supporting characters. I freely admit I love this series (which should be read in order).
