Love Loveeee LOVEEEE!! J.D.Robb!!! IN DEATH Series! I've Read Every Single Book in the series! and Susan Ericksen SHE"S an AWESOME Narrator!!!
Another great, edge of the seat thrilled by J.D. Robb. Would love to listen to all her books in one sitting!
Always look forward to Robb's next book as soon as I finish the last one!
This book is very different in that it combines my two favorite book subjects: Murder mystery and Medical mystery. As usual, all of the characters are very believable and it is very easy to get caught up in the Science Fiction aspects of the story, all of which are completely believable. Highly recommend, particularly if you have never read any of the "In Death" series since this makes a great stand-alone book.
Magic formula, huh? All the characters we know and love are in this story. Peabody, Roarke, Feeney, etc. Some have really bit roles, like McNab. There’s a new major role in this book, a federal investigator. Maybe a future series based on this character? Basically, a couple of grizzly murder scenes results in another obsessive search by Eve and her supporters, a few bad dreams, love scenes and showers with handsome Roarke … all familiar venues. If you’re familiar with the basics of the first 34 In Death books penned by Nora Roberts, and the well rounded band of sleuthers therein, you’ll be right at home.
I simply love Eve Dallas and Roark. Amazing that Nora Roberts can write so differently between this series and her other more novels. I've read a great many of them but love the J.D. Robb futuristic cop series. Maybe I just like knowing the characters and having them do the same thing in a different way.
Anyway, this book is different in that there is a murderer out there but no one sees it happen. It's an aerosol vapor that makes people go into a frenzy and stab each other with forks or whatever they have near. Very scary since sometimes the local TV describes people acting in the same way without any poisonous gas involved.
The book is predictable but we readers of the #35 book in the series expect that which is why there are so many books in the series. The difference in this series and others where the settings remain the same is the vitality of the characters. Eve is dangerous and lovely and a total dichotomy between the New York Police Lieutenant and the wife to Roark. To understand the dyanmics, one must read the first book in the series 'Naked in Death' and then you can read any book in the series pretty much and know what's going on. I happen to be a bit Obsessive-Compulsive and like to read things in order but that's just me.
Susan Ericksen is terrific narrating since the book is told from Eve's viewpoint. She gets the accents and makes you think she is a tall, dark haired Irishman. Good read.
yes, I would. This book was interesting and had me at the beginning.
She is amazing and I love everything she reads.
Absolutely!! I love every second of this series! I love all of the characters and every story line! I have loved watching the relationships grow and change.
I LOVE Susan Ericksen! Her ability to the voices all so differently is AMAZING!!! She makes you feel like your a part of the story!
When Eve does her reveal to Peabody about what happened in Dallas, I cried all the way to my kids school to pick them up.
Yes, I would listen to every book in this series over and over! It's taken me two years to listen to the whole series, I am going to miss Eve, Roarke, Peabody etc... I feel like they have become a part of my life! I am so used to Eve's city, I really don't know what I am going to do without them!
I recommend the whole In Death series if you're never read it. To really get the full flavor of the book you need to know the history behind it. That said, this is another gripping tail about catching creative killers. Keep in mind that it's set in a future world so if you have no tolerance for any inventiveness in scenery then you might avoid it. However, the world is a completely believable mix of current and 'new' technologies. The story itself is compelling and the main characters, as all are likeable and entertaining. A good read.
The creativity of the murder weapon. it's believable and down right scary to think about that happening in the real world.
The narrator smoothly moves between characters and narration. you can hear the voices being spoken with her slight changes in tone.
Another great Dallas read. I loved the fast pace and the full storyline. I will always love the futuristic elements of this series.
