Every few years talk starts up that J.D. Robb’s In Death series will be optioned for the big screen. With this year’s release of the 40th book in the series, Obsession in Death, this past February, there was once again talk that it was past time to see these characters brought to life.
Being a fan of the series for almost a decade, some of these characters have taken up long term residence in my brain while others have filled in along the way in “Aha!” moments. Whether or not you might agree with me, I would pay big money to able to see the world of In Death be brought to life on screen exactly like it does every time I pick up a novel.
Angelina Jolie as Lt. Eve Dallas – The series centers on Lt. Eve Dallas, the head of the homicide division of the New York Police and Security Department. Eve was abused and raped as a child by her own father. She was forced to kill him in self-defense at the age of 8, then she was tossed into an uncaring foster system. Her name was given to her by a social worker and she made it her own. Eve dreamed of becoming a police officer and protecting the innocent. Eve gives her all to find justice for the dead.
