____"Divided In Death" continues J.D.Robb's fascinating series with even one more exciting well-crafted tale.In #18 the usual Robb characterization continues to be an integral element making the reader relate,on a personal level,with Eve,Roarke,Peabody and the others who are part of the "In Death" series ensemble that the readers have learned to follow with extreme interest.The plot,this time,involves the daughter of Roarke's personal assistant,thus affording another insight into Roarke and his relationships.However.the narration by Susan Eriksen,is to me,the single most important facet of all Robb's books,including"Divided In Death".Despite excellent characterization and intriguing plot lines,"Divided In Death" would not be the superior read/listen that is without Ms Eriksen's superlative narration.
I did not read the print version. i would imagine that the audio version of this book is the better choice as the narrator is very good.
I liked Mira, the police psychiatrist who is always kind and wise. I like McNabb because of the way he is described and the voice his character is given. Actually, all the supporting characters of this series are clearly written and come alive as their words are read.
She is a very skilled narrator. She performs all the voices well.
The tension in the marriages in this one (Roarke & Eve, Reva & Blair), made me anxious as I read but I understand this was important for the story.
One of the best books of this series.
This is one of my favorites in the series. You don't know "who done it" right up to the very end. Every time you think you have it figured out, the author steers you in another direction. Perfect timing throughout the story.
Love this series. The characters are so well drawn. This one kept me guessingg and I personally liked the anti government take! One minor note to the author: You over use "nearly" and "merely" as adverbs! I bet you can come up with better!
Sorry, language arts teacher speaking!
It has an excellent story line and the expansion of the characters had me shedding a lot tears in this one! Susan Ericksen did a great job narrating, which always makes this series come alive.
I feel so in tune with the characters and am trying to work out who I would have playing these characters if they were ever made into a series.
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.

This "in Death" series is really enjoyable, a fun read with the strong female detective, Lt. Eve Dallas. All the stories are interesting and the continuing saga just fun!
Perhaps because I just finished reading Dan Brown's Digital Fortress (DiVinci Code) I compared the two authors. Too much of the book is conversation between the characters and not on the plot. Enjoyable but does not keep you wondering what is happening.
