Today's challenge is: 
 Any series you are +2 behind on (from clearing off the bookshelves)
On Manhattan's Upper East Side a woman lies dead at the bottom of the stairs, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.

A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn't seem the type to be on anyone's hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the building, the lieutenant knows Marta's murder was the work of a killer who's trained, but not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

But when someone steals the files out of Marta's office, Eve must immerse herself in her billionaire husband Roarke's world of big business to figure out who's cruel and callous enough to hire a hit on an innocent woman. And as the killer's violent streak begins to escalate, Eve knows she has to draw him out, even if it means using herself as bait. . . .
I am almost at the point where I'm more behind on reviewing the books I've read in this series than the books themselves. I'm happy about that somewhat. I really wish I could get caught up on my reviews. Fingers crossed that will happen. 

In this episode of Eve and Roarke, like how in my mind it's like a tv show. That brings up a good question, why the hell isn't it a tv show. Boy, that would be so good. Back to my review, As you guys might remember I mentioned getting behind of these books and now that I started reading them again I'm flying through them. 

In Calculated in Death we are dealing with a killer who takes out an accountant. As with the past books, I really enjoyed this one. Robb has a way of writing that can keep me engrossed in the story and make me feel like I'm there with them. Of course, I'd most likely be arrested for stalking but it would be worth it. 

As always the cast of characters makes the story. Eve might be a kickass lieutenant but like everyone in life, she needs help from those around her. If you're a fan of a good mystery and romance (Eve & Roarke) then this is the perfect series for you. Start in the beginning and enjoy how the characters grow with time. Any of you read her?
