Nora Roberts – D. C. Detectives consists of Sacred Sins and Brazen Virtue. As you might guess it follows two homicide detectives in suspense (serial killers, naturally) and romance. It was published in the late 80s, which makes many aspects dated.

Bottom line: read only if working through all the Nora Roberts books.

In sacred sins there is suspense and romance. The suspense is surprisingly good; the romance so so. There is some violence,  no sexual assault. I liked the heroine and hero, though I thought the romance rather forced.  3 stars.

Brazen virtue  takes a nosedive from sacred sins. Ed, who in the first book is appealing and funny, becomes one dimensional and in some cases downright weird. Grace is very appealing – in every scene that isn’t a romantic one. There are a lot of pages on people who will die shortly, which I find annoying. The serial killer is revealed to the reader very early. Almost no character development. Very violent with serial killer point of view. No suspense. In short, 0 stars.
