Book # 9 Loyalty in Death

The relationship continues to strengthen between Eve and Roarke as they fight a terrorist group threatening New York.

The threat is very real as well known landmarks in the city are destroyed by bombs.

The book was written in 1999, but takes place in the year 2059. Some of the historic landmarks are well known, such as the Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden and the Statue of Liberty.

The mention of the Twin Towers was particularly noted, as who would ever have imagined, in 1999, what happened on September 11, 2001. I got the same sense of loss reading about them as I do when I watch some older movie or TV show that shows the New York skyline, dominated by the Twin Towers.

I suppose as this story was also about terrorists it made it all that much more heartfelt.
