It's another of the best in the Eve Dallas series, if I could say it was page turning I would but instead I will say that I couldn't turn it off. The stories are all good but this is one of the best.
It had intrigue, horror, suspense and got to answer some of the questions we have had about Eve (the main chararcter). Simply stunning story
She is now and will always be Eve Dallas....I couldn't after so many books think of her as anyone else. She captures in my mind the true essence of the characters in the series and has made them her own so that they come alive in our imaginations as we listen. Brilliant.!
I am always amazed at how J D Robb can write such horror and suspense and then blend such stories together such as the bride series (as Nora Roberts) which are so joyous and loving - what a talent!!
One of the things I love most about the in Death series, is how the characters, especially Eve, have evolved over time. The author manages to keep Eve's toughness, while allowing her to show her softer, loving side, and also keep the raw terror of her childhood memories. It is brilliant, and the narrator is perfect. She is Eve, as well as all the other characters. I especially love her portrayal of Peabody. I definitely recommend New York to Dallas.
I have every "In Death" book in audio and I love every one of them. Always a great listen. There can't be enough said for Susan Ericksen's performance. Her voice range for various characters is nothing short of amazing. Even her sultry voice of Roarke makes you want to swoon. Eve Dallas and Susan Ericksen make for a very commanding team!
I think it rare for a series to survive with such an eager audience after more than 30 books, but Robb delivers every time! There is much life yet in this Dallas-Roarke storyline.
I finished it in a day, and eagerly await the next installment.
I was beginning to tire of some of the storylines in the last few books. This book returned to the passion of the first few books yet added tremendous suspense and a surprising storyline!
I think this was one of my favorites! It has a fast-flowing story line, with the usual cast of characters only playing a minor part. Eve???s realization and the way Roarke handles her, is as always touching. Their bond seems to grow stronger with each book. As usual Susan Ericksen did an exceptional job of narrating!
I loved this book!! The relationship with Eve and Roarke is my favorite literary relationship and this book highlighted why I care about this couple. Watching them deal with such an emotional case and how to care for one another was exceptional! Of course Eve's kick-ass style was also well represented, no matter what she has been through, she still manages to pick herself up and take care of business - LOVE HER!!
I have all 35 "In Death" books on audio. There is not a poorly written or narrated book in the series. I absolutely love these characters & the stories are gripping & keep you guessing until the very end. If you like mysteries you will love these books. Thank you J.D. Robb for another fantastic book. I look forward to the next one!!! I have gotten so many friends hooked on this series - huge fan!
Glad to see eve finally learn to deal with her past. Made me shed some tears. Now if she would just learn to be more refined :-)
