Portrait in Death (In Death, #16)

After a tip from a reporter, Eve Dallas finds the body of a young woman in a Delancey street dumpster. Just hours before, the news station had mysteriously received a portfolio of professional portraits of the woman. The photos seemed to be nothing out of the ordinary for any pretty young woman starting a modeling career. Except that she wasn’t a model. And that these phot

review of another edition

Going to sound like a broken record here soon. Yes, I loved it. There were some stark revelations here that left one of the characters reeling. The mystery element was well plotted. No, didn’t guess the “bad guy.” Eve is in full force as usual. She loves her job.


Roarke has his own businesses to run but he is always there to help Eve in any way he can. And ease her tension … with some hot sex!!

“I couldn’t fall out of love with you if I fell all the way to hell.” Emotion was storming into his

“I couldn’t fall out of love with you if I fell all the way to hell.” Emotion was storming into his eyes …

The Irish knew all about wars, conflicts, hunger, and poverty. And they dealt with it, sang of it, wrote of it. And drank around it of an evening …

Roarke has to return to Ireland to deal with a personal situation – he visits County Clare (this is where I was born and lived for 22 years) – I got so excited when I saw this!!!


Yeats is one of Roarke’s favourite poets. I like his poetry too and have visited his resting place many times in Drumcliffe, Sligo.

A few bits and bobs annoyed me (0h, here she goes again!!!) – the accents on some of the Irish words. Easy enough to put in, surely … Sláinte, Siobhán, Dóchas! It just annoys me a little bit. I was the one who was in my hospital bed and warned Himself that if he came back from the Town Hall with Seán’s birth certificate and if didn’t have the “síne fada” on it, I would clock him one! He did good.

OUT-WORN heart, in a time out-worn,
Come clear of the nets of wrong and right;
Laugh heart again in the gray twilight,
Sigh, heart, again in the dew of the morn.

Your mother Eire is always young, 5
Dew ever shining and twilight gray;
Though hope fall from you and love decay,
Burning in fires of a slanderous tongue.

Come, heart, where hill is heaped upon hill:
For there the mystical brotherhood
Of sun and moon and hollow and wood
And river and stream work out their will;

And God stands winding His lonely horn,
And time and the world are ever in flight;
And love is less kind than the gray twilight,
And hope is less dear than the dew of the morn.

“I was just wishing for you … and here you are.”

Roarke – sigh – you know me. I love an asshole alpha male. Roarke is alpha but he is not an asshole. He is fucking perfect! I adore him. And I pretty much have a girl crush on Eve too. As always, the secondary characters are wonderful. Peabody, McNab, Feeney, Summerset, Galahad ….

I wouldn’t advertise that if I were you…

Poor soul. The killer, I mean. Yes, it was really sad to discover who and why the killer killed! Even Eve was almost touched!

Where I was touched is Rourke’s reunion with his family!!! I actually cried! I was considering planting a cherry tree on my balcony!!

I was also chewing my nail when Truheart was in danger! And to read about Baxter’s distress!!! WOW!!!

Another winner here!!!
