I haven't read the book. I love books on tape.
It was a great story.
Yes. I bake and listen to books n tape. So it was the perfect length.
Love the narrator.
I have in the past, read J. D. Robb and thus had a clear mental picture of how the characters would speak and the emotions they shared or chose not to share. I regret to say my mental picture in no way matched the narration. Sorry Ms. King, I did not enjoy your performance. I will need to continue reading J. D. Robb on my own.
Again, nice that Eve is a bit softer--retains her edge but not constantly complaining and fighting about everything. Typical Eve Dallas story but as always, a good listen and good performance.
Short but Good
Watching the character turn into his demon self
She is so good what else can I say
I loved the interaction between Dallas and Peabody over this problem
Well worth the money I paid for this book.
Sometimes in a series the short stories stuck in between the longer ones are trite and seem to rush the story too much; not so in this J.D. Robb mystery. I enjoyed this story and, of course, also enjoyed the Susan Ericsson's narration.
The twisted "bad guy" that really was just like any other bad guy; selfish, jealous of others, determine to have what he wants no matter how it hurts someone.
At the very end when Roarke beats down the bad guy with his fists when a stunner wouldn't put him down.
This is a great one as always. Susan Ericksen and Sean Crisden are the two best narraters I have listened to.

This Eve Dallas story is not one of JDs best. It has nothing new in it and does not hold the readers interest. It seems rushed and the story has little depth, no location changes, no interesting characters and hardly any inclusion of York. It is not a mystery or an adventure. The author was not creative at all and the story was very short and flat. Sorry.
A short story in the excellent In Death series. This one is a little different, because the killer is a true freak. As in green skin, red bulging eyes, contorted chin and body. Starts with a grisly killing, ends with Eve solving the case, as do all the In Death books. Since this is short, we don’t get much of the interaction with the supporting characters, and that is my favorite part of this series. As usual, excellent narration by Susan Ericksen.
The narrator put me off so badly I didn't get more than a quarter of the way through. She sounded like a bad police interrogator.
I have listened to this "series" twice and enjoyed the second go around as much as the first. Looking forward to not only the next book, but also lisitening to the series in another couple years.
