You weren't exactly keep guess but it takes an unexpected twist near the end that's great. If you have made it this far in the series then you know it's worth it. If this is your first book then start at the beginning it's worth it!
This is a great series. Can't believe I'm already on book 26 in the series.
Lt. Eve Dallas has her work cut out for her with all the crazy homicides she encounters in this series. Each story follows several core characters while introducing new murder victims and killers. Can't get enough and hope new ones come out before I get to the end of the series.
It's a solid example of the story and pacing of all the "In Death" series books.
Eve, of course. She and Roarke are wonderful characters.
Polished, interesting, lively
Not really, but I thought the suspect interviews at the end were very well done.
Manager of a mortgage banking division in San Luis Obispo, CA.
Susan Ericksen, the narrator, is amazing. And I love listening to all of the new situations Nora Roberts comes up. Fun, too.
I would have made Eve more sympathetic toward people who she saw as only weak when they were victims without hope.
As usual, I enjoy most the scenes between Roarke & Eve; between McNabb & Peabody.
I felt angry toward Eve at times and angry at the manipulative person who planned three murders.
An interesting story, borrowed from the classic Hitchcock movie, 'Strangers on a Train'. That this was the plot of a classic mystery film was mentioned by a couple of the characters in the book. I thought it was not very thorough of Eve to not show an interest in seeing the movie.
I have read all the "in death" books and I'm now listening to each one.I really enjoy them all.
I think Susan Ericksen changes her voice flawlessly. She's great!
JD Robb's "in death" books are my very favorite.
Having read all books in this series I know the the main players and find the books very entertaining

Eh.... A little over-dramatic than I'm used to from this series. And the plot's been done before. Although, to give credit, it is mentioned that a movie was done with the plot and maybe that's where the idea came from with the killer(s). Still a great read, though, and I've moved onto #27 without hesitation! Just not one of the stronger stories.
