Listening to this series in order and am enjoying it. Not the most suspenseful story line, but the narrator is the key to these books. She is fantastic!
One of the things I really like about this book is the side action. There are are least 2 occasions so far where Eve and Peabody have come across crimes while in outside locations. While Roarke is supportive of Eve's chosen career, there is a perilous situation about halfway through the book that brings the fear of losing her to the forefront. Again, as in the 1st 3 books, characters and their relationships between each other become more developed and even minor characters are given depth and purpose.
The scene where Peabody gets a load out of Roarke with just a towel on is hilarious. She already flusters whenever he speaks to her and the bare-chested Roarke only makes the situation more comical.
As for the main murder case, the plot is inventive and as the pieces fall together, you see how the futuristic setting works well in this story. The author makes it believable and a real possibility sometime in our future.
I am new to find J.D. Robb, Nora Roberts. You can find them a reliable source of entertainment, most the time. This series so far has been great. I couldn't wait to start and when I finished, I couldn't wait to start the next book. It is a murder mystery with romance incorporated in. The side characters are likable too.
It reminds me of Catherine Coulter's split second.
When Dallas and Rorke are up to no good.
The title covers it.
I would recommend it, you can't go wrong.
Although I guessed who was the antagonist early on, I thoroughly enjoyed the climax. The story is smooth and the presentation is great. Each character is discernible. Can't wait to download the next one.
I have no interest in the print version. Not when Susan Ericksen is the narrator
Most definitely! I was prompted to do this review because in the midst of the entire plot J.D. gave us a glance into the most cheerful debate of Nature vs Nurture while putting invaluable detail into the characters of Riana and Dr Mira.
I must confess I am not finished with this volume but I must say this Nature vs Nature plug had me pleasantly surprised
Yes. Makes for perfect light listening. Good stories.. timeless
The scene on the ledge. I really thought Dallas was going to save her. I was stunned.
In this scene, Peabody has a cup of "real" coffee for the first time!! I am a coffee lover so the prospect of a future world without coffee is quite dreary.
