While i enjoy all of the In Death books and hope to have them all as audio books i would not have purchased this one if i had read it first. Not that by itself it is not a good book, it is just to much like an earlier book in the series. Been there, read it & listened to it already.
This storyline is fabulous I just wish that Eve was not so rude, I know her character is a strong formidable woman but the way she is portrayed is a little over the top. The way in which she speaks to some people is annoying. Overall though I just love the books very well written with lots of twists. I love all the characters- thank you- Sharyn Campbell
I could not stand the narrator whining while seeming to be trying to talk tough cop talk. It was overdone and did not come off. She seemed like a griping teen age girl. I gave up fairly quickly.
I love the humorous banter between Dallas and Peabody, Rourke, or Summerset.
I have tried to compare the "In Death" series to the "Women's Murder Club" series by Patterson and Paetro. Similar backdrop - super successful, female cop in a big city. But "Women's Murder Club" just cannot hold a candle to Dallas and her team. The drama, passion, and humor is just not there with Patterson and Paetro.
I have listened to all of the "In Death" series and Ericksen is ALWAYS on her game. She is by far the best narrator that I have ever heard for this genre.
All of the "In Death" series books make me laugh out loud.
I enjoyed the story line. I have read all the books in this series this was the first Audible version for me.
I lived in NY for 20 years and I felt that narrator's protraction of the characters was way off. I especially dislike Peabody's accent. I couldn't get past this and probably will not listen to another audible book in this series.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
I love these characters and the story that developes around them.
Thank you and keep them coming.
JD Robb had me hooked with the 2nd book in this series. I have spent most of my spare time in the last year listening to ALL of this series and I love all of the characters that have developed with each book. Mavis and Eve make the best if not the weirdest set of best friends!! And to see Eve develop from having no friends except Mavis into having a group of friends that are very diverse, funny, and I can picture myself right there in 2060 having a tube of Pepsi right with Dallas. Can't wait for the next book. Hurry up September!!!! And thank you to Jd Robb (Nora Roberts) for creating these characters to be part of my reading pleasure!!!
Definitely not. She starts this book out with trying to do an Irish accent for almost the entire 1st chapter. She was so bad, that it ruined the whole experience for me, and I really couldnt' concentrate on the story.
