Judgment in Death by J.D. Robb

I’ve been slowly rereading the In Death series, intermingled with other books. Judgment in Death follows Witness in Death. This one gets me every time because I always remember who did it and why. Plus, this is the introduction of Webster so of course, I love that.

After learning about the series the first time back in 2001, I promptly read them all. At least, I read all of those books that had been released. But somewhere along the line, I stopped reading the current ones so I have needed to go back and read the series again. That’s why I’m re-reading these.

This story is #11 of J.D. Robb’s In Death series. It takes place after Witness in Death and has some references to it. The killer might not be who you expect.

My plan for 2022 is to write three blog posts a week- one about a fantasy book, one about a mystery book, and one about a romance book (with some posts about series thrown in). This one is a mystery so if you’re a mystery lover, then you’ll want to check it out!
