The only thing that I would change would be the narrator. The story is fine, but the narration left much to be desired.
I liked the fact that three books were included for the price of one.
The narrator just didn't have the ability to clearly differentiate her vocal tone between characters. I guess I am spoiled by Susan Eriksen who narrates the J.D. Robb "In Death" series.
There are several more follow up books to this set.
All of the "In Death" series keep me on the edge of my seat. With the suspense, drama, and humor, I can't wait to find out what happens next.
I have listened to 34 books and several short stories that Ericksen has narrated. No one compares to her.
Ericksen does a superb job of giving every character their own voice and personality. No one does it better.
I really think that Robb did a great job of character development in this book. Morris has always been a bit character, but in this novel, he becomes a major focal point and Robb does an excellent job with bringing him to the fore-front.
I will probably listen to it again just before the next book is released to refresh my memory on the series.
All of the "In Death" series novels keep me on the edge of my seat. Between the suspense, drama, and humor, I can't wait to see what happens next.
I have listened to 34 novels and several short stories that Ericksen has narrated. She is ALWAYS spot-on. There is no one better in this genre.
Hollywood Comes to Dallas!
Don't Underestimate Dallas
I couldn't stop listening. Between the suspense, heart-wrenching drama, and side-splitting banter, I couldn't wait to find out what was next.
Erickson can bring the characters to life with her vocalizations and accents. I really don't think I would appreciate the characters as much if I would have read the book.
Any of the scenes with the abducted girls and their treatment really ripped my heart out.
I loved the fact that Peabody took a bigger part of the story line.
As with all the books in the "In Death" series, I couldn't stop listening. Between the mystery, the drama, and the humor, I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next.
Erickson has the amazing ability to vary her vocalizations and accents to make it easy and enjoyable to discern which character is speaking. She is the best.
All of the Eve Dallas books make me laugh out loud.
I love the humorous banter between Dallas and Peabody, Rourke, or Summerset.
I have tried to compare the "In Death" series to the "Women's Murder Club" series by Patterson and Paetro. Similar backdrop - super successful, female cop in a big city. But "Women's Murder Club" just cannot hold a candle to Dallas and her team. The drama, passion, and humor is just not there with Patterson and Paetro.
I have listened to all of the "In Death" series and Ericksen is ALWAYS on her game. She is by far the best narrator that I have ever heard for this genre.
All of the "In Death" series books make me laugh out loud.
Susan Ericksen, in my opinion, is the best narrator that I have ever heard on an audio book. Her vocal characterizations are spot on.
As with all the books in the series, I planned my days around when I could listen to the book.
I would not listen to it again. There is no compelling reason to listen again.
The ending of the book was had a great plot twist.
The narrator just does not have the ability to clearly differentiate vocally between the characters. At times, I found it difficult to follow who was talking during a conversation.
