I have a long commute during the week and listening to great novels always help the time go by more quickly. I love this website!
I listened to book 1 a few weeks ago and was hooked. I love the character Eve Dallas, who is the Lieutinent cop. I also enjoy listening to the performance/voice of Susan Erickson! She's fantastic!!
I thought the moment that Eve realized that she couldn't live withour Rourke was so touching. I could feel how she felt with every line I was listening to.
I have to listen to all the books in this sequal now because I am so attached to the characters. I can't wait to find out what happens to Eve and Rourke next. I did get sad when Eve and Rourke broke up.
Listen and learn. Life is an adventure. Have fun, laugh, and love thy neighbor. Life is too short not to have a good time. Bye
This is an exciting book. Eve opens up to her lover.
Eve going up against her captain.
Her unique style in presenting Eve's character.
Probably not, but I'm not in the habit of re-reading(listening) books, unless its extra special. This was good, don't get me wrong, but its not on my top 10 list.
Nothing comes to mind. Not because it's very unique, but because it isn't my preferred genre. Its a thriller, set to the future.
I liked her accents. Thee were times when I felt she was to aggressive in her reading, but she got Eves strong will well across. She is one of the better voices I've heard, and I think she fit the bill. She made it better, and I don't think I would have enjoyed the book as much if I just read it myself.
No. Although near the end it was impossible to put down!
I really did enjoy the book. It was entertaining, and something different to what I normally read. I just ordered In Death book 2 - it's a series I want to continue, at least for a while.
I think my friends would get a kick of this story as it is very fast paced and has loads of action in the bedroom and on the field ;).
This story kind of reminds me of the Red Dahlia by Lynda La Plante and the Prime Suspect series written by Lynda La Plante because Lieutenant Eve Dallas is so single minded and focused on solving the murder at hand.
I have listened to Naked in Death and I continue to believe that Susan is an excellent narrator. I was surprised by her ability to do male characters.
My name is Mona and I am an infrequent reader. I found books on audio by accident. I am really enjoying it.
Powerful, Sexy, Mysterious
Yes it did. You may have had an idea who had done it but you had to wait till the end. I just loved it.
She did a great job with the voices. I really could tell the difference.
Some things caused laughter and shock, but I did not cry.
I will be getting the next book.
middle of the road
the storey I like , The sex , , a bit is good more off putting, More storey
Susan is brilliant, I would listen to her reading the dictionary. She sets the standard so high other readers who may be excellent seem to be just Good
I just enjoyed the read
After listening to 3 books I really enjoyed. I made a change to the Lincoln Lawyer, a good change
I've read everything in this series but I think it's going to be great working my way through series audibly. These first two make me smile with anticipation. Love the story and the narrator.
I enjoyed this one more than the first one, the quality of the plot is more consistent. It's a classical detective story with some romance and sci-fi elements. Nothing too exciting and easy to follow on the road. Well done narration.
"Were to hide a crime of passion - in the heart. .
The first victim was found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas had no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provided Eve with a long list of suspects - including her own lover, Roarke.
As a woman, Eve was compelled to trust the man who shared her bed. But as a cop, it was her job to follow every lead . . .to investigate every scandalous rumor . . to explore every secret passion, no matter how dark. Or how dangerous."
I love this couple! Eve is complex with many dark corners in the baggage she carries. Roake's is mostly a good guy who seeps into her life. Even when she doesn't think she needs it, Roake helps her whenever he can.With her usual deft hand, D. J. Robb gives the reader/listener all one could desire in a good mystery.
The reader does much justice to each character! I especially that of her junior office, Peabody!
For anyone who thinks readers' attempts to create voices for characters are not worth the effort: you need to listen to Susan Eriksen reading J.D. Robb. Her ability to create the sound for Robb's dialogue is remarkable, particularly in scenes with Dallas's husband and partner. With at least a half dozen of the regular characters in the series, it's like picking up the phone and hearing the unmistakable voices of old friends.
