I liked the characters of Rourk (?) and Eve; although, high level references to events from preceding books that were important to the character development made me feel as if I was missing something important to the story. I may have liked the story a bit more if I had read/heard the previous book(s). Having said that, I did feel that parts of the basic storyline really dragged, particularly related to the investigation. In addition, there was a futuristic element of the technology (i.e. Droids, etc..) that I was not prepared for. I found the voice used for Peabody extremely annoying. I believe that may have affected my perception of the story.
Always a great listen. Eve Dallas is a kick ass heroine and Rourke is super sexy. Susan Erickson is a great narrator. LOVE THIS SERIES!
A narrator who didn't try so hard to create various accents at such a shrill pitch
No because I really enjoy the genre.
I don't know specifically who should have narrated it, but this narration spoiled it for me.
The story was OK, the evil of the villain, and the dedication of the lieutenant.
This is the first book I have read by Robb and I might try another sometime, but not soon.
I love mysteries, only the best of the fantasy books...and a sprinkle of romance.
Dependably great story.
I love each characters uniqueness.
I know that when ever I read an Eve Dallas book it will be very enjoyable.
I loved the connection of family & justice. I loved that despite being orphaned, Dallas, Rorke,and Nixie had all found families of their own. It also was real, and told the all too true story we see & hear each day- namely that we are ungrateful for our blessings. We forget to acknowledge that we don't accomplish anything alone. And we are reminded that there are those out there who refuse responsibility for their actions & actually think they are entitled to whatever they can grab, regardless of the fact that their desires are impacting others sometimes to death.
My bucket list has been the goal of thanking as many people as possible for their gifts of entertainment or artistry over the years. So, thank you, Nora Roberts for this series. I've enjoyed your work throughly. Your books are one of the few that I read again & again. They are also books that I think highly enough of to recommend to others. Even got my daughter to read again! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I loved the narrator- She really does a great job of bringing characters to life without being corny. I don't usually gravitate toward this genre, but this series continues to get great reviews so I checked it out. I found this story quite enjoyable, and I will continue to explore the series.
I'm a huge fan of this series. I've listened to almost all of the books at this point. I think Susan Ericksen did an awesome job as usual bringing the In Death characters to life in this book. However, the story itself was not up to par. The interactions between Eve and Roarke were relatively flat but I could have gotten over that. It was the amount of time spent in the mind of the killer and in detailing his torture of the victims. The torture of a dog and a little old woman just pushed me past my breaking point. I couldn't stick it out. It may be because it reminds me too much of the man who just murdered two bright young journalists in southwestern Virginia. Regardless I would caution even the most devoted Eve Dallas fans to think twice before listening to this book.
