Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
The books just keep getting better and better. I love the sound of each character in the book. You even develop a relationship with them with each book that you read.

Fantasy in Death was an engaging book. Lt. Eve Dallas was the perfect mixture of hardboiled professionalism, determined sleuth, and complicated and seductive wife. She was an in depth, independent thinker who held her ground even when that perfect husband of hers vehemently disagreed with her methods. She was neither too tough nor too compliant. This character was set in the backdrop of an intriguing story. How was the consummate gamer able to commit the dastardly deed while physically being somewhere else. Also, I have always been intrigued by villains. This story depicted a villain so lethal that he was able convince a trio of gaming friends of his love for years. At the end, when his treachery had been exposed, he, of course, blamed the victims. This is the third J.D.Robb book I have read, and it is my favorite, thus far.
Yes. It was interesting, entertaining.
Yes. It was very interesting. It went into detail about the creation of cutting-edge new video games and the people who invent them.
The last action scene where Roarke is stabbed in play.
Yes. It was engrossing.
Good series, interesting characters.
This is my first experience listening to a J. D Robb book. I bought two more of her books as they were on sell. I hope her other books are better. Sexual remarks are not necessary as they add nothing to the story and are used just to add length to the story. I suggest J. D. Robb read and learn from Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston.
This book has turned me off J. D. Robb.
I'm not sure if it Susan Ericksen's performance as much as it is a poor quality story.
I have been really enjoying the In Death series but this was the first one I was thankful for part two to start and then just decided to stop listening period. The story was dull, the readers did nothing to keep my attention and honestly since stopping mid-book, I couldn't even tell you what the story was about and and haven't been the least bit curious as to how it ended. I have never stopped mid-book before no matter how bad the story was. This was a first for me and I listen to about 24 books or so a year.
I love the "In Death" series and have read or heard almost all of them, so far. But the slower speed of reading that Susan Ericksen is now using, is driving me crazy!! All the earlier books are great and I love her as a reader. I think it started with this book and has continued through the succeeding books, much to my dismay. Ms. Ericksen's voice sounds contrived when she consciously slows down her reading speed and it is a strain to hear. It is like she is REEAAALLLLLYYYY trying to pronounce every syllable very carefully. Please go back to the way you've done it all along. These are great books but this reading speed problem is very distracting and takes away from what are otherwise engaging stories.
This one was "Fantastical-ly" diffrent. Enter the world of E-GEEKS. Whoa I had trouble figuring out the killer on this one. I kept going back and forth with myself with 2 of the characters. I was glad it was the one I wanted it to be which was funny cause that was the same thing Peabody (Eve's partner) said.
Another great read the ending was very touching I love that Eve and Roarke's ralationship just grows with every story.
BIG thumbs up to Susan Erikson for the making the characters real and the great naration.
Enjoy! Happy Listening.
I cant believe I have almost listened to all the in death stories.
I love this series. It takes place just far enough ahead in the futrue where things are a bit different in the tech sense. More like what I really expect it to be. A futrue based CSI story with a great female lead detective who is human and kicks great butt with a flair for messing up and making it better. Love Eve's flaws and strength, and Roark is the perfect match for her.He is a bad boy with a heart of gold. What else would a billionaire have? They both have interesting things to bring to the table and the mystery of the crime is in there for wonderful entertainment value. the side characters are fun. JD Robb is a one of a kind author. But like any series everyone will choose their favorites. I have not been bored yet. I must say I do not like the novella's much. Not enough meat in them for a hungrey reader. This one was not a novella and a keeper. This in number 30 and I hope it keeps going for a long time to come.
