No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
I didn't realize this was a futuristic series. That is a genre that I do not care for. It was solidly written but not anything special.
Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.
I've listened to many Nora Roberts (aka JD Robb) books and my opinion varies depending on the book. This was not bad or good...mediocre.
No, but her narration is good.
I didn't care for this book but the Naked In... series has a huge and loyal audience.
I am not one who can handle vulgar language and graphic sex, so i dont even know what the story was about. I only listened about 20 minutes. I wish the books had a rating system. That would sure save time.
suspenseful, hilarious and damn good.
Ten times better then One for the Money,and any Lisa Jackson.
Ericksen does a fantastic job of reeling you in to each individual character. Give each of them life. There is no way you cant tell who is saying what.
The entire tale was great.
I went into this book thinking it was just your basic cop story, but was surprised and delighted to find that it was set in a futuristic world it just made it that much harder to stop listening. oh of course the romance didn't make it too bad either.
NO...not when there are 38 to go!!
I have read all of the Elemental Assasin and was looking for something similar...I found something better. I only hope it will continue.
It made me think.
On to book 2!!
I think audio is so much better than the written book because Susan Ericksen gives Eve's character life that you would never get from just reading.
I have read some of her other books out of order so reading the first book was great. It's so worth starting from the beginning of the series but the books are so good you don't have to sart at the beginning to get the characters.
Who would not fall in love with Rourke!!
These books make me feel like I don't want o stop listening until the end and want to start listening to the next one right away!
Because Susan brings all of the characters to life, there is no comparison, You HAVE to get the audio version!!
I was introduced to this series by a gift offer for Number 13 in the series. I was so intrigued that I went back to the beginning. It is far better to start here and watch the characters grow.
I am not a fan of science fiction or fantasy at all, and was certain I had made a mistake with this book. It is set in 2058 and this is a description of what life could have evolved to without having to suspend disbelief too much. It could be described as a basic detective thiller, but the circumstances and the characters are wonderful. They are complex and interesting, and the romance is quite steamy at times.
Susan is amazing with the American, English, Irish and a host of other accents. I would love to see a video of her performing one of these books because when you are only listening, you are completely involved with the story, and the performance boosts that feeling, not distracts from it, as some performers do.
Yes, I wanted more. I did not want the story to end. I am now an "In Death" junkie.
Take the leap and you will love the rollercoaster!
Audible introduced me to this series (37 novels, 10 novellas & 1 prequel) which is a combination of Detective Story, Romance Novel and SciFi. I found the idea of a female lieutenant in a NYC murder squad who becomes involved with a billionaire while solving a murder very interesting. Let's start by stating if you want to read this for the Sci-Fi you'll be disappointed. Though the series commences in 2058 and there is some good technology utilized, it is not a huge part of the book. In fact the space travel is a little ahead of what I at least believe will be possible in that time frame. J.D. Robb is a pen name of Nora Roberts, a Romance novelist and author of over 300 books. Though there are definite Romance Novel elements to the story, they are sub-plots. This is basically a good detective mystery. The main character Eve Dallas is a homicide Lieutenant. In this novel she investigates the murder of a Senator's daughter, who earned her living as a licensed companion (i.e. prostitute). During the course of her investigation, she is hindered by the involvement of the victim's father & his aide. One of her suspects is Roarke, a mysterious handsome billionaire with a shady past, who of course becomes the love interest in the romance sub-plot. As Lt. Dallas pursues her clues in NYC & Washington, DC and environs, we get to learn a little about her early life that haunts her. We meet some of the charachters that will populate later books in the series and best of all we learn that she is a smart, relentless investigator and dedicated to solving the crime. There are twists and turns during the investigation, but eventually Eve brings justice for the victim & the victim's family. If you find you enjoy the audible book, as I did, and choose to listen onward, you will find the the narrator Susan Ericksen is utilized for the entire series, which makes the entire series than much more enjoyable.
The setting of the time / story
Slow pace and the narrator made it worse
Drove me crazy
I hope book two is better - oh but wait I will never know! Once bitten twice shy.
I read a lot of the reviews and figured this one would be a good story.
The narration was ok but a little too harsh of a voice to really sit back and enjoy.
She didn't do a great job on the different characters.
The romance between Eve and Rourke was so cold. No heat at all. J.D. Robb needs to take lessons from Maya Banks and Nora Roberts.
The murder mystery was just ok. It could have been more gripping through out the book.
The last third of the book was very good with a great ending. I almost quit listening but just figured I had to finish and glad I did.
