In the year 2060, cutting-edge investigative tools can help catch a killer. But there are some questions even the most advanced technologies cannot answer. . . . At the most solemn moment of a Catholic funeral Mass, the priest brings the chalice to his lips. Seconds later, he is dead on the altar. For the mourners packed into the pews, Father Miguel Flores's sudden demise is an unimaginable shock. When Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas confirms that the consecrated wine contained enough potassium cyanide to kill a rhino, she's prepared to plunge in and find out why, despite her discomfort with her surroundings. It's not the bodegas and pawnshops of East Harlem that bother her; it's all that holiness flying around St. Cristobal's that makes her uneasy. The autopsy reveals scars from knife wounds, a removed tattoo, and evidence of plastic surgery, suggesting "Father Flores" may not have been the man his parishioners thought. Now, as Eve pieces together clues that suggest identity theft, gang connections, and a deeply personal act of revenge, she hopes to track down whoever committed this unholy act. Until a second murder - in front of an even larger crowd of worshippers - knocks the whole investigation sideways. The way Eve sees it, vengeance may be the Lord's business, but if there's going to be any earthly justice in this case, it's up to her. Download and start listening now!

    " "Salvation", a bit like "Strangers" before it, moves JD Robb's In Death series into a more traditional detective story mold. Of course it wouldn't be an Eve Dallas story if things didn't get gritty and occasionally disturbing with a heaping dollop of creative profanity. But what we have here is an emphasis on the mystery itself and peeling back the layers until truth is found and justice achieved. Of course I really read these stories for the characters, and Eve, Rourke, Peabody and crew are in top form here. An extremely satisfying read! "

    " I have been reading this series from the beginning. I enjoyed this one the least. I may be burning out on the series. Or I may just be irritated with another secular author knocking Christianity without knowing what they are talking about. Page 189: "Salvation must be earned." The whole point of Christianity is that salvation can NOT be earned. It is a free gift but it was not cheap. Reading about Christians with a derogatory tone from a clueless author really REALLY irks me. "

    " Good mystery in this one. I sometimes feel these books are a little predictable, but this one was good. A couple of secondary storylines that all connect into the main murder investigation. Good Roarke and Eve stuff. My one gripe is that Eve's childhood trauma is starting to be used as a story crutch. Seems like every case is connected to that in some way. Is Roberts stuck in a rut? "

    " Nice intricate plot. Better than her usual in that way. "
