I am an avid reader so for me to purchase an audio of a book that I've read it has to be special. Betrayal In Death is another great audio. I have listened to J.D. Robb's in Death series multiple times and am still entertained by Susan Erickson's characterizations. Out of 44 in Death books with the 45th Calculated in Death due in Feb. 2013, I am rarely disappointed. This one's a keeper!
I have read all the in Death series multiple times and do purchase the unabridged audios of the most interesting reads, this one made the list. Betrayal in Death has a fast paced plot, with lots of investigative action and trademark Eve & Roarke byplay. With a surprising guest Robb gives us another treat into Roarke's interesting past. I love the supporting characters and Robb teases us with more Summerset/Eve interaction. The Feds get involved in this one and Eve kicks butt!
Susan Erickson's interpretation of the text and characters is spot on, she keeps it believable. Erickson must have a multiple personality disorder because I could swear that they 'exist'. Erickson doesn't forget which character she is speaking for and stays within their personality. Great job.
Robb spent a great deal of time with the plot of this crime and it shows, I laughed and cried but to tell you why would spoil the story.
Believe me when I say this audio would be a positive addition to the in Death fans and to those who are new to Robb a great start. If you need to judge my taste, some of my other in Death favs were: Survivor, Treachery, Kindred, Vengeance and New York to Dallas.
As far as other audiobooks Kindred in Death ranks up in the high 5%. In respect to J.D. Robb's in Death series this one's a keeper.
I deeply enjoyed Robb's delivery of plot and timing. Her use of characters and their roles in this book was EXCELLENT. The layers were so rich in content, the pacing of the storytelling was on point. Loved listening to every word.
Susan Ericksen's consistency with keeping each character's inflections was incredible. It kept me imaging the action, not breaking my concentration with the story.
I did have an emotion reaction to this story. When Eve watches the recording it broke my heart, yet she proved yet again why she's so kicka$$.
