Even after a number of books (this is book 30), it is still a great series. But to tell the truth, I found myself enjoying Eve and Peabody's banter more than the main mystery. There were places I couldn't help myself laughing. The main mystery was technologically interesting, although not as much as the other in Death books.
I work out of my car, so I like having a captivating story while I drive. This isn't the best I've listened to of JD Robb, but I really enjoyed it. If you like gaming, you'll really like this one.
I like the Fantasy in Death Series, and this is a fair representation of the series.
I have never listened to an audio version of any of this series and had a problem with it. No disrespect to the reader, and she did a good job: Clear differentiation of characters and a nice flow to the reading. But her interpretation of the sound of the characters was very different from how I imagined them and the conflict was jarring to me. Perhaps others will find her reading right on the money.
NORA/J.D. ROBB NEVER DISAPPPOINTS. I ALWAYS FIND THE IN DEATH BOOKS RIVTING AND A MUST HAVE. IF YOU HAVE NOT YET READ/LISTENED TO ANY OF THE IN DEATH BOOKS START AT THE BEGINNING AND GET HOOKED!
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.
Great series. I've listened to the entire series now. This was not my favorite and I'm not really sure why. I would recommend this series and have.
I love to listen to all kinds of mystery and crime books along with biographies, romance and self help books.
I enjoyed listening to the book. It was not my favorite in the series. I am glad I listened to it and will continue listening to the series.
I love Peabody and McNabb.
I love listening to her and how she uses her voice for different characters. She is awesome.
Maybe a TV movie
This is another great book about Eve Dallas and Roarke. I love the series. This one is all about a company that produces computer games and has been doing so for quite a few years. The owner is like a big kid but is very good at game design and sales. Roarke made him an offer years ago but the kid wanted to do his own company. Roarke remained in touch with him and they exchanged ideas but never stole ideas.
These books are so much fun to read and they are better when read in order. This is #30. The games takes a game disk home to try out and he winds up dead. The book proceeds from there trying to find out how he died and if there can be real weapons in a game. Needless to say the electronic boys at the police station and Roarke as civilian consult get involved and things get exciting.
After much exciting gaming stuff, the mystery is solved. But, you must read it to find out how it ends. Obviously, the good guys win and the loser carted off to a cage, probably off planet for the next 50 years. Penalties are very long but humane. He won't have any e-toys to play with.
Susan Ericksen as narrator is terrific. It is always amazing to me how females can make themselves sound like sexy males and vice versa when its a man narrating as a woman. Guess that's why it's called acting!
Former Waitress, Chargeback clerk, Clown, Florist owner, Clergy. Love series, humor, twists, history, mysteries, not into witches/bondage.
I really love the story line. I actually am not done, but it really is fascinating.
The opening scene.
Yes, but alas not enough time. I have been driving around the block a lot!
I am a middle aged woman with an open mind and many interests, my reading/listening moods change like my teen-age daughter changes her clothes.
I do not know who is more brilliant, JD Robb or Kristen Eriksen; JD Robb created real-life characters and Kristen Eriksen brings them to life.
