Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
This book is the first in the long series. I have listened at least once a year. This is just plain good writing. Roake is just as sexy as a guy can get.
Many...but it starts with the coffee and a gold foil bag of it.
Her rich voice is just so great. She make "Lt" come to life. Her Irish voice had me buying any story that show cased that brogue.
ending " Roake says I don't thing....I know I...."
If you start this series, you will get hooked on the first 10 books without a doubt. Get started.
I am a disabled vet who is currently going blind. So I have been preparing for it by buying audio books, since I cannot even read a book anymore which WAS my life.
I would suggest this book to everyone. Ms Robb did an excellent job on the subject and content. The narrator is excellent for Ms Robb's works
I haven't read the print version, but Susan Erickson does such a great job with the narration that it felt like I was reading the print edition.
I loved the way the love story is easily mixed with the mystery. Neither over shadows the other.
Roarke. She does a great job with an irish accent.
Yes! Unfortunately life did not allow that. I want to buy the whole series based on this one book. Since it was written in 1995, I have a lot of books to catch up on.
I'm a stay at home mom in southeastern KY. I LOVE audio books....especially ANYTHING by Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb!
I started listening to this series around Book 20. I had no idea how far back the series went. After the 5 books I bought all at once, I had to start from the beginning. WOW! This was the perfect beginning to a (hopefully) very, very long line of stories. I'm at # 8 now and can't stop listening to Susan Erickson's wonderful voices. Thank you "J.D.Robb" for these wonderful books!
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired

She plays all char. Perfectly Eve,Rourke,Peabody,Fannie,macnabe,sommerser,mavett,Nadine,crack.morris omg hard to pick favorite.
Yes! These books have become one of my favorite series. This is the book that stared Eve and Roarke relationship.
The author wrote the characters and their interaction with each other in such a way that I felt invested in their story. The story was very different from other police stories/contemporary action books I have read in the past. It kept me riveted to the book.
The main character, Eve, was the most interesting character to me. She was complex, interesting.
It is nice to here the character's voices with the book. I especially liked the way she did Roarke, the Irish brough was very nice.
Eve is a cop with a troubled past, three gruesome murders to solve on a deadline...and an international man of mystery her. Eve's having a busy week.
Smoke me a kipper; I'll be back for breakfast.
For several years someone told me I should check out this author's books. She said that every woman she recommended them to fell in love with the series. This depresses me. This book was absolutely crap and is just an alternate version of a bodice-ripper. The difference is that the main character is a stock hard practical female cop. Unless you're looking for girly smut (ie woman taken against her will but ends up loving it), don't bother to read this. The writing isn't very good and the story line is totally predictable.
You will not regret listening to these. They are the best; love Eve and Roarke. It's great to watch their relationship grow.
My name is Mona and I am an infrequent reader. I found books on audio by accident. I am really enjoying it.
Suspenseful, intriguing, satisfying.
Just started listening to these types of stories.
She really brought a voice and a picture of each character. I enjoyed the varying difference in each one especially the old woman.
Futuristic, sci-fi, thriller.....
About to start the second book in the series.
