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.

If you have a problem with hearing about a pet, in this case a small dog, being hurt by a human, DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS BOOK. It broke my heart. Had to stop listening even though it's a good story.
No. Good story but not well done.
I found that it was not possible for me to continue listening to this book, and had to get the print edition. It was nothing wrong with Ms. Ericksen's narration, which was wonderful, as always. It was something I cannot describe about this particular killer and the words that described his killings, that somehow affected me as an audiobook; as a print book, I could skim or skip the cruelest bits.
An avid book reader who absolutely loves having the opportunity to carry my favorite books everywhere I go and listen to them anytime I want
I do not read paperbacks
Was expecting a big boom, but it went out with a fizzle.
There really was not a favorite "scene" for me. I skipped over some of the book when the crimes were described in detail.
No. It was extremely long and I could only listen for so long and I needed a break. It was not one that couldn't wait to get back to. I had to make myself finish.
Not a fan of this author, but it was recommended. Can't visualize the use of electronics and droids.......
I have not listened to a book which walked you through the actual crime with such detail. It was disturbing to me and I skipped many of the horrible details. And, I have seen a lot in my career so I don't have a weak stomach.
Not feeling that he is someone I will listen to again. He has taken the time to develop the characters, but it is sometimes difficult to visualize who is talking as the tone does not vary from the detective to murderer.
Happy listening to you all.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
How fabulous to hear the voices of Dallas and Roarke, as well as all of the NYPSD and the family from Ireland. I am always amazed at the characterization of each person in the story.
I thought that this one was the best so far. Thank You
Just finished it and just about ready to start again.
I just love Dallas with 'The Family"
I have listened to all the 'In Death" books along with "High Noon" She is always brilliant.
Dallas getting the Meddle of Honour.
I am a big fan of J. D. Robb's "In Death" series. This new offering is great. I think it will be one of her best, mixing just the right amount of suspence with a bit of comic relief and romance (sex) thrown in. The good guys are racing just behind the villain and you keep thinking "hurry up, catch this creep". But Dallas and her crew win thru again. An awesome read.
This series has had its ups and downs, but we're on an upswing with this one and the last few. These books have always been fairly dark, and this one is no different. I really enjoyed the camaraderie within her department, seeing Roarke's family and their effect on both Eve and Roarke and the bits with Nixie are excellent. This one was pretty great. Susan Ericksen is as awesome as ever, audio is the way to go with this series.
A good addition to the series. The murderer is known from the beginning and the passages from his weird point of view are quite creepy. Lots of humour to balance out the horrors. I love the way the characters are growing and evolving and Eve's softer side is coming out more, there were some quite emotional moments too. Susan Ericksen's narration of this series is excellent.
"Great new story"
Brilliant engaging warm
The way all the characters interact and the way the story evolves
Wonderful reading, makes you feel part of the story
something to be thankful for in more ways that one
J D Robb does it again. Really enjoyed this latest Dallas
"Great story, shame about the Narrator"
Her characterisation of 'Peabody' was dreadful - really whiney and nasal. Her Irish accent was dreadful and it really distracted me from the book
i love all of the J D Robb 'In Death' books but won't be listening to them again narrated by Susan Ericksen
