No, R/S novels if you enjoy the mystery it's hard to return and get the same thrill from it.
Everything, how the murder took place, the personal dynamics of the characters, the murder victims lack of humanity and how it impacted the serial cast. Plus just enough personal elements of Rourke & Eve to have me committed to this series. J. D. Robb never lets us down with this couple, the complexity of the crimes and how Eve uses her guts and smarts to find the killer. In this novel more personal dynamics have been added with the secondary characters, which just grows the overall dynamic of the cast.
Yes, Prior J.D. Robb "In Death" serial content. I'll be honest, Rourke's voice took some getting use to because I started out by reading the novels and so I had my preconceived notions of what Rourke sounded like. I do think either I've gotten use to it or SE's voice has replaced the one in my head. But, right from the get-go Eve was pitch-perfect.
It was unfortunate that I needed to sleep, because this was a winner. Listened to it in 2 days.
I like these books and I think the narrator does a great and consistent job. I like going into these books knowing there is going to be a murder and Eve will catch the killer with the assistance of Peabody and Rourke, along with her normal cast of characters. The murders are consistently different and I usually can't figure out exactly why until very close to the end. The murder in this particular volume was fascinating because of the many parallels between the actors and the play they were performing at the time of the murder. The victim was reprehensible and I think this is the first time there's been a victim with no redeeming qualities. It's also fun to see the general storylines inch along, albeit at a glacial pace. I'll definitely be listening to the next book.
I enjoy reading but listening to to books let me do cleaning around the house or get away from work at my luch break.I
I thought I had figured out who did it but I was wrong.
I have listened to other JD Robb books by Susan Ericksen she does a very good job.
I listen to audiobooks when I drive and when I hike.
Buy and listen to this one if you are reading the "In Death" series; otherwise, skip it. I thought this was at the bottom of the list out of the first ten books in the series, but I'll keep reading because I have enjoyed the rest of the books a lot more than this one and hope this book isn't the beginning of a downhill slide.
I would love to listen to this story again. The characters are very interesting and its a bit like Agatha Christie where just about everyone hated the victim and could have done it. However, Eve, with Rourke's help, digs deep and sifts through until she gets it.
I loved how Eve actually had empathy for her murderer. Of course her ignorance of theatre was pretty cute too.
Yes I have listened to many of them. I love them all so it's hard to compare. Susan does a great job!
I certainly laugh at times as the witty remarks, especially between Eve and Roarke and Eve and Peabody are just delightful. There were sad moments but not quite to the point of crying.
I thoroughly enjoy this series. The way each character has their own special bits e.g Feeney's nuts and of course Eve's pretense at being really hard when she's really quite soft is lovely. The relationship between Eve and Roarke is so special and I do not get bored with them, ever!
Susan Erickson captures all the sass and intrigue of Eve Dallas - I'm hooked.
I never knew what to expect from the case Eve was working on, and loved the Eve/Roarke story even more.
I listened to the first of the "in Death" series with Susan Erickson before reading the next 8 and returning to Audible for number 10.
I like crafts, gardening, reading and camping.
As always Audible does a great job with voices and accents, sometimes I think I get the next book just because I love to hear the Audible performance. But J.D. Robb is getting old with the same retelling of the same basic story line. Come on J. D. give me another character add something new!
I'm an avid listener. Audio books are a mini-vacation for me. They fill my "need to read" when I don't have time - which is most of the time. Great element of multi-tasking!
I am a long time fan of the Eve Dallas series, but have read several of them out of order, which may skew my thinking about this offering. While still an enjoyable read, this edition seems a bit more formulaic than others. The best part of this book is the narrration by Susan Ericksen. She gets all the characters, providing a great deal of visual imagery with her delivery.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Another excellent story and addition to the awesome series. So love the in Death series. :)
I enjoyed seeing Eve showing a little different kind of emotion and her relationship with all the other characters. I enjoyed how the story unfolded with so many suspects.
As usual I enjoyed the ending being revealed only at the near end. I also like the relationship between Eve and Roarke.
Susan Ericksen brings life to the characters and when I read the book, I can put her voice in my mind as read after listening to the audios for so many other books. I think she has each character distinguished to a perfect match.
Yes, I almost finished this one in a couple of days and couldn't wait to start the next book.
I am trying to go back and strat from the first book and read in order, but to keep the audio and reading going I often have to skip around, but I won't stop until the all have been read, then I might start again...I hope the Death series keep coming out.
