The story was entertaining. Having said that, it was also pretty graphic and slightly icky when going over the description of the victim. The narration was great as usual.
Yes because the narrator, Susan Ericksen truly brings all the charters to life for me. I've listened to all the
I don't think I can pick just one... she does them all so very well, I don't have just one favorite.
I find mind self sounding like a broken record but I can't say it enough I love this series. I only tuned in to the 1st book in the summer of 2010 and I have now almost finshed the series and will be anxiously awaiting the next book. This was another stand alone absolutley sad and touching. The story and narration make you feel as if this is really happeing and you could turn on your local news and see it. JD Robb really knows how to capture and hold. Thank you for for such a great stories. Some are gruesome and hard to imagine but in the same sense allow you to imagine the pain that a family endures when such horrible things happen. It's really hard and they even make you cry right along with the characters.
The ending epilogue with Louise and Charles gave this story a bittersweet ending.
BIG KUDOS AGAIN Susan Erikson for bringing the in Death Stories to life. Please dont ever stop doing the narartion.
I love the series and wish that Susan Erickson would read all the books that I buy. She does so well, I forget that I am being read to. The characters become real like old friends after so long.Keep up the good work. I get so excited when I see that my friends have come for a visit.
First of all, I really get annoyed reading the negative reviews below from folks who ONLY listened to the first few hours of the book. Secondly, this is Book 29 of a series. My advise with any series is you should start from the beginning and get to know the characters, and here it is especially essential because you'll understand why the narrator chooses the voice for each player...they really fit.
If you have enjoyed any of the In Death Series, you'll enjoy this one as well. How Roberts continues to find new angles on murders for Eve to solve makes each book in the series fresh and #29 is no different.
I would also like to add to those reviewers who don't like Peabody's voice; from about Book 13 to 16, Erickson throttled back on most of the characters strong intonation and gave Peabody a voice closer to Eve's. For me, who started with Book 1 Naked in Death, it was disappointing and was thrilled that the narrator brought them back full strength in Book 17 and has continued ever since.
This was my first J.D. Robb audiobook. The storyline was good, but the unabridged version was too drawn out and repetitive. It took half the story to capture my attention, but the last half was OK. I think I'll go to the library before spending more money on this author.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
First book I've read by this author.It was really slow in getting interesting.It was okay. I don't know if I would read another by the author.
