Book #4: Rapture in Death by J.D. Robb
/

We’re talking about “Rapture in Death”! This is one of the best books of the series, but we say that every podcast, so…

For this week’s discussion, we welcome back Tara Corkery of the Basic Snitches podcast!!

This book is all about mind control. People are committing suicide due to subliminal messages put into VR goggles. The obvious choice for the culprit here is Jess Barrow, who is Mavis’ new producer, and who is also a huge dick. Eve tries hard to pin it on him, but can’t quite do it.

Eve does a couple of stupid things, like climbing out on a ledge to try to save Cerise Devane who wants to jump off her building, and trying on the VR goggles, only to find they are playing a sex fantasy program. Did she just cheat on Roarke? She decides to confess, but he seems fine with it. She just can’t try it with actual humans, and she’s fine with that.

The sex scenes in this book are doing real work here to show Eve and Roarke as they are normally and Eve and Roarke when they were victimized and mind controlled. Even though the first “mind control sex” they have is really hot and it’s overall a great scene, we’re not at all happy why and how it happened.

Second time “mind control sex” happens, we see “Scary Roarke” and who could blame him. It’s also interesting that the “sex in the closet” scene is the first time Roarke uses Gaelic around Eve. He keeps saying “Liomsa,” which means “mine.”

Later, Roarke teaches Eve to say “a ghra” which means “My Love,” and from that point forward, we hear this phrase a lot from Roarke.

Throughout the podcast, AJ mispronounces names, as usual.

“Reena” is actually “Reanna.”

“Matthew” is actually “William”

And Tara is pronounced “Terra” not “TA-ra”. Sorry, Tara.
