Publisher's Summary

The year 2060 is drawing to a close, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It's a time for loved ones to come together. But sometimes the deepest hatreds seethe within the closest relationships, and blood flows faster than water....

For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it's a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood.

Other couples aren't as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son. Twenty-six-year-old Jerry hadn't exactly made a good impression on all the bosses who fired him or the girlfriend who dumped him - but they didn't think he was capable of this.

Turns out Jerry is not only capable of brutality but taking a liking to it. With the money he's stolen from his parents, and a long list of grievances, he intends to finally make his mark on the world. Eve and her team already know the who, how, and why of this murder. What they need to pinpoint is where Jerry's going to strike next.

    Story
    "Extremely violent and nothing new from J.D. Robb"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The plot was so similar to others books in the series that it was predictable. Nothing new happened between any of the characters either. I would not rate this book as 4 or a 5 in terms of the plot.


    Has Thankless in Death turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I have not purchased the last available book in the series because this book was so similar to others in the series. Why bother reading the book when there is nothing new happening?


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    I love Susan Ericksen. She is the voice of Eve and all the other characters in the series.


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

    Disappointment. I found myself skipping over the intensely violent scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't bother to purchase this book.

    "Disappointing"
    What did you like best about Thankless in Death? What did you like least?

    I am a huge fan of the In death series - I have all the audio books. However this one was so disgustingly-the-top that I skipped parts of the book. The gruesome violence as the protagonist commits the crimes and compulsive profanity by all the characters was hard to stomach. This book was not an enjoyable experience.

    "I didn't think I'd like it, but I was wrong"

    I was worried I wouldn't like the book, because you pretty much know who the suspect is from the very beginning of the book. And man, I could picture something like that happening. I think what I love most about these books, and it has been reconfirmed in my brain, is just seeing how the characters continue to grow throughout the books. I especially loved the very ending scene with the letter; it mademe cry good tears.

    "Best of the In Death books yet."
    What did you love best about Thankless in Death?

    The way she brought many of the main characters together.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes but could have done without the torture.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Eve and Roark got their medals.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I cried when Nixie gave Eve the gift and Roark read it.


    Any additional comments?

    I am so glad Eve was offered Captains bars and glad she stayed where she is.

    "Death Series Went in a different direction"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    of Course - I have enjoyed all of the books, always feels like I am with friends when I listen to them - I always enjoy Susan Ericksen bringing them back to life.


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

    Nice to see Eve let her heart open a bit more -


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    I always enjoy Eve and that man of hers - where do we find one like him. :)


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I think this book was more from the criminals point. I wanted more from Eve and other mains - Where were some of them? Marvis, Nadine, we barely heard from Sommerset or Morris...... The Criminal was a bit winey and I got it after the 2nd kill.... I will continue to be a fan, but I hope the next books gets back into some of the personal lives of the gang. Any Change Eve will get pregnant. Now that would be interesting.

    "Loved this book!!!"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I have read/listened to all of the In Death Series books. This is one of the best. I laugh out loud as Dallas struggles to adjust to her growing list of friends and family.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    This book as one error, during the epilogue the narrator finishes the person I am most thankful speech saying Nixie Simpson instead of Swisher.

    "Another Entertaining Eve Dallas Book"

    This narrator is my FAVORITE reader. I have friends and family who read this series and I tell them they are missing so much. When Susan portrays Roarke or Peabody it is truly classic. I love the irish brogue of Roarke and his family. This story brought many of the former characters together that we remember and love. I'm not sure that a newcomer would enjoy the story as much. But for the loyal fans this was a Thanksgiving treasure.
