Well I am home for the week because of Thanksgiving which is good because my throat is killing me and I cannot talk. Went to the doctor but they said it was not strep and likely due to my allergies, so I am to take three Advil and suffer until it goes away. :( I am not happy. As long as it goes away by Thursday so I can eat comfortably :P That is the important thing.

Update: forgot to mention that I had a review for Bond of Darkness by Diane Whiteside up last week at Book Binge, if interested go here.

Salvation in Death (In Death series Book ?? I have lost track) by JD Robb
In the year 2060, sophisticated investigative tools can help catch a killer. But there are some questions even the most advanced technologies cannot answer.

Her latest thriller sets a new standard for suspense, as the priest at a Catholic funeral mass brings the chalice to his lips—and falls over dead. When Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas confirms that the consecrated wine contained potassium cyanide, she’s determined to solve the murder of Father Miguel Flores, despite her discomfort with her surroundings. It’s not the bodegas and pawnshops of East Harlem that bother her, though the neighborhood is a long way from the stone mansion she shares with her billionaire husband, Roarke. It’s all that holiness flying around at St. Christobal’s that makes her uneasy. A search of the victim’s sparsely furnished room reveals little— except for a carefully hidden religious medal with a mysterious inscription, and a couple of underlined Bible passages. The autopsy reveals more: faint scars of knife wounds, a removed tattoo—and evidence of plastic surgery, suggesting that “Father Flores” may not have been the man his parishioners had thought. Now, as Eve pieces together clues that hint at gang connections and a deeply personal act of revenge, she believes she’s making progress on the case. Until a second murder—in front of an even larger crowd of worshippers—knocks the whole investigation sideways. And Eve is left to figure out who committed these unholy acts—and why.

Another good addition to the series. Not my favorite in the series but a good addition. I wanted more action outside of the case. I missed seeing all the other people in this world. She had one phone conversation with Mavis and that was all we got of her and did not see Charles and Louise at all. It was mainly the case for this book. The case was very good so I still enjoyed the book, just not as much as some of the others.
