    It was one of Eve Dallas’s earliest takedowns, back in her uniform days. A monster named Isaac McQueen had been abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. Thanks to Eve, he wound up where he belonged, removed from civilized society in Rikers. But he’s not behind bars anymore. After his escape, McQueen has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, preying on the young and innocent - when necessary, with the help of a female partner all too willing to be manipulated and to aid and abet his crimes.

    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.

    When 17-year-old Lady Jillian Fitzgerald sneaks out to spy on a duel, she believes she is merely guilty of an indiscretion. But when the duel takes a deadly turn and Jillian becomes an unwilling passenger in the fleeing carriage of the infamous "Lord Wicked", she knows what began as a lark has become a disaster. One night of bad judgment and her life is changed forever.

    Story
    What would have made In the Garden of Disgrace better?

    A narrator with a proper command of the English language and adequate reading skills


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was a forgone conclusion, but the journey was made unnecessarily painful by the extreme shortcomings of the narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tanya S. Bartlett’s performances?

    Not in this lifetime unless (1) the title was free, and (2) I was in the mood to be entertained by a bit of word butchery and stumbling/stilted narration.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I am angry at having paid for this experience, but that anger derives from the inexcusably poor performance and not the book. I was looking forward to the book for a bit of pleasant diversion, but my focus kept getting diverted to trying to suss out mangled pronunciations so as not to lose too much of the thread of the storyline.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is a worthwhile READ, especially if you are into this genre and have enjoyed the other books in this series. This particular title, however, is better read as hardcopy or as an ebook. I am reading book #4 in this series since it has the same narrator as this book.
