There will be more first impressions of all the aspects of Peabody -- as we and Eve get to know her. Here's her first bit of sarcasm directed at a superior officer. What did that say to you? -Laura

“Can you get away from the noise?” Eve shouted.
“Sure. If I leave my post and walk three blocks crosstown.” She remembered herself. “Sir.”

Peabody has that extra quality of sass.🥰

I fell in love with Peabody when she commented that a victim's pigsty was just like grandma's house! Let the sarcasm reign! . .

Priceless 💟

Just love Peabody!!!

This told me she was not going to be intimidated by Eve and she will stand up for herself! I enjoyed her from the get go!!

Peabody is one of my favorite character developments in any series I've read. Her personality just becomes more comfortable as her role evolves more significantly. When side stories spin off this series, I'd love to see a novella with her or her and McNab as the focus.

She has total respect for her Lieutenant but her spark is there. Love Peabody ❤️

Peabody has great sass and will stand up for herself she also respects Eve

I liked her sarcasm & she’s not shy about voicing her thoughts ❤️

Peabody is Eve but with a stable, loving upbringing.

Love the delayed “sir”

Sassy Peabody😄

I actually thought Peabody was being sassy! She’s got a great sarcastic streak.

It says this is a very interesting relationship in the works! with more to come...

Love Peabody!!

I always loved how she was almost matched with Eve and the sarcasm and such.

Sassy!

Peabody spoke without thinking. Realized what she said and added, Sir. I thought, Eve you have found the perfect partner!

Peabody is not afraid to speak up. Way to go, girl.

I think that’s one of the things that make her hook with Eve. Maybe Eve saw herself in that free ager cop. Who knew

The exasperation of an officer for a superior's stupid question is obvious! LOL But I think Peabody knew Eve wouldn't smack her back for a bit of snark, but not being quite sure of Eve yet, she added the "Sir"! LOL

Geez !! I love that series, all the characters old and new... it is sooo amazing.

A hint of things to come!! I love Peabody's sass and sarcasm. Eve comes to appreciate it. But early on, she was always following up her comments with Sir!

Liked Peabody right away

Every woman needs a little snark sometimes. I was really glad to see that Peabody had some.

The new NYPSD chief, Harrison Tibble, is a cop's cop -- impressive enough to scare Eve, just a little. What was your first impression, especially compared to the political minded Simpson in Naked in Death? -Laura
#chief #gloryindeath #firstimpression

Text reads:
He was an enormous man, a full six foot six and two hundred sixty pounds of solid muscle. After the gun ban, he’d used his bulk and cold, terrifying grin to intimidate his quarries. He still had the mind of a street cop, and his record was clean enough to serve tea on.

Big improvement from Simpson. A cop’s cop is someone Eve would look up to

Love Cief Tibble

I was just glad a good cop got that position, and Tibble is a good cop.

Tibble was the man for the job ❤️

Love that Eve is a little intimidated by him.. he’s the man for the job.

Perfect man for the job. It’s a good thing they offered it to whitney first

Glad that he wasn't going to be a hurdle for Eve to have to deal with.

He was scary

A no B.S. cop who had been there and seen it all. x

INTEGRITY.

Wish we had one like him!

Glad they offered to Whitney first and that he turned it down

The only kind of chief that Dallas could work with.. knowing the trenches like he does. Makes him see the whole picture

I agree with the others. I’m thinking as in sports, the coach former player who knows how to get the most out of his team.

That here was someone who would have his cops' backs. Not sell them down the political river

I loved this description as it leaves no doubts in your mind that this man is a cop, has the back of cops, but doesn't tolerate crap from cops.

I thought Tibble was just the sort of man the NYPSD needs at the helm after that idiot Simpson.

I just figured we traded up lol

He was intimidating

A cop for the tower. One that respects the badge he wore and the badges under him.

My 1st impression was that Eve and the rest of central were pleased with Tibble; He appears to be a straight, no nonsense, and no BS cop!

Scary

I just reread Judgement ID. "Many cops feared him. Eve respected him"

Way better future for Eve.

I loved it! A good clean cop just like Eve!

When Roarke realizes he'd forgotten to turn off the cameras around the house in Mexico, we see Eve's playful side for the first time. What did you think of the teasing, carefree Eve in this moment? -Laura

Text reads:
“This is fascinating. The sophisticated, seen-it-all Roarke is blushing.”
“I am not.” He hoped to Christ he wasn’t. That would top it. “I simply see no reason to document lovemaking. It’s private.”
“I’m not going to pass it on to Nadine Furst for broadcast. I’m just going to review it. Right now.”

I like the reactions of both of them.

I always laugh out loud when I read this. So delightful to see Eve starting to enjoy life more.

lights, camera, sexy action 🤣

One of my favorite moments in the series.❤️💕

Made me giggle

I love both of their reactions because they seem opposite of normal for them.

I absolutely love that scene.

I liked that side, She was having fun

Awesome

I loved seeing her so happy and carefree

Loved this scene! Showed a different side of both of them.

I thought this was a hilarious scene. I felt sorry for Roake, and loved Eve's enjoyment.

I still think Roarke's reasoning was lame. I've often wondered if there was some incident that brought on that opinion. Or, if he was always on defense, trying to prevent a blackmail situation. Plus, before Eve, I wouldn't have considered any of his 'encounters' as making love. They were play time and nothing more.

And here I thought Roarke would be fine with it while Eve was going to be skeeved. How nice I couldn't predict those reactions! LOL

I loved it! I'm sure Roarke was blushing. Great scene!

I loved that she could be that way with him!

I loved this so much! It was heart warming to see Eve this relaxed and happy. I still wonder if they watched it!

Excellent job of showing the playful side of Dallas, Lieutenant Eve.

She enjoys Roark thoroughly.

I love how she keeps him off-balance!

Loved it!!

I think she saw an opportunity to tease Roarke with something that wouldn’t go any further than the two of them and she took it. It was a cute light moment, especially because Roarke hoped to Christ he wasn’t blushing!

At this stage they are both learning more about each other and enjoying it. It also shows how secure Eve is becoming in the relationship

I loved this moment! Showed Eve's wonderful sense of humor...and Roarke's sense of propriety. 🙂

She definitely has a playful side and He didn't know just what to do with it. Got to admit, this scene made me giggle.

In Chapter 12 of Glory in Death a young, efficient officer has prepped the crime scene for Eve. It our (and Eve's) first impression of Officer Peabody, Nora's said she was meant to be a character in this scene, but once she walked on page, Peabody never left. What was your first impression? (PLEASE keep to this scene/meeting, there was a lot of jumping ahead yesterday in terms of Summerset and Mavis.) -Laura

Text reads:
“You made good time, Officer . . . ?”
“Peabody, Lieutenant. I was on a swing of First Avenue. I verified homicide, secured the outer door, called for additional uniforms and a primary.”
They get any of this on camera?”
“Sir.” Peabody’s mouth thinned. “I ordered a news team off scene when I arrived. I’d say they got plenty before we secured.”

Love Peabody!!

It takes a lot to impress Dallas, but she did it!❤️

Had a feeling Peabody was going to be a permanent character. Thank goodness!

Yes, one of my favorite passages 👍

She seemed efficient which surprised Eve. Didn't see her becoming a recurring character

I thought she would make a perfect assistant to Eve. I have loved her ever since.

Honestly just saw here as another uniform but it wasn't until another scene in the same both were I thought okay maybe we might see this one again.

I love Peabody!! Glad she made it off the first scene.

Dee was on top of things from the start and she rarely misses. Eve saw the potential immediately.

From just this scene, I thought she was scarily efficient.

My first thought was how efficient she is and how much Eve would appreciate that.

I have loved Peabody from the first time she appeared. So glad she became a permanent character. I love her story line and her free ager family.

She was on the ball and impressed Eve. I did wonder if she would show up again.

The beginning of a great working relationship as well as beautiful friendship. Watching them grow together is another highlight of the series.

Very efficient!

Smart mouth efficient officer who stood up for her self, loved her.

Her competence and no nonsense approach impressed Eve!

Officer Peabody…serious about doing her job, knowledgeable about procedure and precise in her dress.

Efficient. Respectful. Smart. Enterprising. All qualities Eve would take in to account.

She seemed to be a capable, efficient, clear headed young beat cop

I saw Peabody as efficient officer. Eve recognized Peabody’s attributes and knew they would well together.

I love Peabody. I named my car after her as it's square (like her hair), blue (like her uniform) and dependable (like Peabody).

Love peabody....

Peabody was a strong character from this first scene and like most students as she grows Eve learns from her.

I LOVE Peabody! Steady Dependable Thorough, and a little bit of a Hippie!
