I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
In this book, someone's slashing the throats of prominent and successful women. Since the suspects include family friends of Lieutenant Eve Dallas' commander and Eve's lover, Roarke, this becomes a very difficult case for her.
If you haven't read the first book, Naked in Death, I would suggest that you do that first, although this early in the series it's not as important. Just as a warning for those who have never read one of the In Death books, the mystery is not really the most important part in the book. I've heard regular mystery listeners complain that they were able to figure out who committed the murders long before anyone in the books did. That wasn't the case for me - I enjoyed the mystery element in this book - but the relationships are the reason why I keep reading the series and why I reread all the books. In this book, Eve has to deal with her problems with commitment in her relationship with Roarke. The way Eve and Roarke interact is wonderful, and Eve's gradual attempts at making herself more than just a cop are interesting reading. I definitely recommend this book and series to anyone who likes well done and well paced romance with mystery and murder mixed in.
Susan Ericksen was excellent with the delivery of the story
I am 81 years old. I did not know I had signed up for a monthly fee. I am on a pension and cannot afford the monthly fee.
There is no doubt that it is because of the narrator Susan Ericksen that that one becomes so involved in these books.
She makes the characters come to life and makes you feel you are at the scene looking and listening to each as they talk.
She is so good at having a voice for each person as apposed to someone just reading a book to you.
Eve as she is so down to earth.
Every bit of it she is so good.
You have got to see it and experience real drama.
I have read 5 of this series and will be buying all of them
Just started reading Nora Roberts under this pen name, a colleague recommended her. What a great mixture of mystery, suspense and sci-fi. I enjoyed the character Eve. I've already purchased the next five books in the series.
Love Eve and Rourke!! The romance is unfolding nicely. The narrator Susan Ericksen is amazing!! I never have to guess who is talking. Again can't wait for book 3!!
I've just started listening to this series and I'm addicted. The narrator is excellent. I am not listening to the books in order but it doesn't seem to matter.
Am a book reader who have to many books and to little time to do it.
Yes because Susan Ericksen is really good at making you want to keep reading. I was reading and listen at the same time. It was fun.
Not really I was hoping the one who was committing the murders. I did have a worry that Eve may back out of the wedding, but I should of known that. Roake can talk anyone into everything. Even a hardheaded cop like Eve.
Everything I love how she gives the characters different voices to the character. She makes these books such a joy to listen to.
Being an empowered women can be a dangerous thing.
Another great In Death book. Susanne Erickssen does a really good job narrating. The audiobook is actually about thirty minutes shorter, the audible title includes a preview of book three.
I am completely all in with these books! The mysteries are in depth and complex, even if I do figure them out way early. It usually takes something exceptional to pull one over on me, so I can't dock a book because it fails to do so, especially if it's quite well written.
I got the first four books on sale and have inhaled them! It's also comforting to know I have many many more in the series to look forward to!
Eve is a fantastic character. She's tough, kick ass, smart, and she has hints of a troubled past. I like that the author doesn't dump a ton of information on us about her past, she gives tidbits in each book.
