The most important aspect of J.D. Robb’s In Death series is the relations and how they affect each person. The relationship between husband and wife is the bedrock of the series, and in Apprentice in Death, the changes in this relationship is mirrored in the redesigning of Eve’s home office and the master bedroom. The changing of each room which once reflected the individual to something that now blends everything they are as a couple, mirrors the changes in their ever growing connection.
But just as important as the marriage bond is the relationship created by the team. The team made up of mentor and student, trainer and trainee, or master and apprentice.
“You take on the trainee because you want him to share what you do, you want to give him something maybe. You want to see something of you in him.”
