The storyline is amazing and keeps you interested no matter what else is going on around you!
The twists and turns are riveting.
The character's voices were a very nice touch. Some voices sounded different than I
I listen to audio books while I work and it really helps me to concentrate. This one, I was sad when I had listened to all of it!
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
As with all of the "In Death" series, this book is engrossing and has really intriguing plot line. Unfortunately Susan Erikson's is as always, irritating, snotty and abrasive. She makes Eve Dallas sound like a stone cold bitch. She does not seem to understand that Eve doesn't have to raise her voice or speak in a confrontational manner at all time. She should be allowed to speak in a normal tone when speaking to people. Even when threatening someone it is more effective to use a calm quiet menacing voice. Unfortunately Ms Eriksons narrates all authors in this manner.However I continue to listen to these books because I love the stories. Where's Loralei King when you need her?
JD Robb can write, so I can't understand why she wants to use "gimmicks" (to attract more readers?) The constant sex scenes between Eve and Rourke is totally unmotivated and frankly wastes time we could have heard more about the case - which is why I was listening to the book in the first place.
Maybe she should write her own Fifty Shades to get it out of her system and I'll be the first to buy that book.
Also, I'd like to know why Susan Ericksen makes Eve sound so aggressive and constantly irritated? A woman can be strong without being full of issues - which is the way she sounds.
The story is solid and interesting.
This series is getting pretty predictable but I enjoy the characters so much that I don't really mind. If your looking just to be entertained without a lot of depth and gore... then you'll really enjoy the this book and the series.
