Devoted in Death (In Death #41) by J.D. Robb

There are wicked people in the world.  This is the story of two young sadistic killers that get into a sexual frenzy from the torturing and death of their victims...

G. P. Putnam's Sons sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It was published September 15th, so you can grab a copy now.

Trying to find the unseen and unknown who grab random people as their victims is a very difficult job.  But Eve Dallas is very good investigator and she works on getting into their minds so she can anticipate their movements.

I've read a few stories here and there by Ms. Robb but didn't remember that they were set in the future.  In this book, she's happily married and has a huge home (courtesy of her husband) that has all the comforts of a fancy hotel and every electronic gizmo you could hope to own.  There's even a butler.  Sounds like a sweet deal to me!

The path to this couple is thin.  They're unknown for the most part, had no history of killing until it got set off as they were leaving town.  The cops begin looking for similar crimes and are surprised by the number that show up.  Following the trail of a killer is never fun, but following one that keeps escalating the number of victims is worse.  Eve's team is dedicated and tough and they keep digging.  It helps that she has Roarke as her husband and back up.  Some of things she can't access, he can.

This is a fearful tale of two kids from hell who feel no remorse or guilt over their victims.  They think they are soulmates and this way is the way you get to heaven.  That's not where they are going, though.

There's enough suspense and drama in the story to keep you turning pages and wishing it was over while at the same time you're wishing the story wouldn't end...
