Naked in Death is the first book in the In Death series. The series stars Lieutenant Eve Dallas. In this book we learn some of the background into Eve's childhood. The abuse, neglected, and ultimately the adandonment. It took such a toll on her emotional that she blocked out everything before the age of 8.
This first book starts off with the murder of a far right Senator granddaughter. As the story unfolds a laundry list of lies, betrayal, and deceit comes out. The murder and subsquent murders are horrific. What set these murders apart from others that Eve has dealt with is the murder weapon, it's quite unusual for this not so far in the future crime novel.
The past of this book is fast. Some may get bogged down or deterred by the new term (which I will list later). There are several suspects that keeps the readers interest. And the sexy, powerful, and rich Roark is introduced to us. I recommend you read this novel. I would say it should be on your to read list but probably not on the top of it.
