Indulgence in Death / J.D. Robb

Indulgence in Death by J.D. Robb (book #31 of the In Death series). 373 p.

A pretty standard but enjoyable entry in this long-running series about NYC cop Lt. Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke, set in 2060. I tend to divide these books into "plot" books and "character" books, based on whether the mystery plot or the character developments are most prominent; I generally prefer the character books. This one's a plot book. Because the series is so long running, Robb makes an effort to refer to previous events, to tie the books together; here she refers several times to a previous case from book 21, yet ignores an obvious parallel to the case from book 13, which I would have expected at least one character to mention in passing. Oh well.
