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.

    "Not The Book I Was Looking Forward To!"
    Any additional comments?

    This book was one I eagerly anticipated, but like a few others in the series I feel let down by it. In this case there was too much focus, attention, time and narration spent on the perpetrater of the crimes. Not only do I not read the In Death series for prolonged reads about murderers (which I felt this to be) but it sadly made many steps in the investigation repetitive and much less interesting, ... nothing close to attention binding. At the same time characters were slightly over drawn and acting unlike themselves. Many of the small kind gestures that one often wondered why Dallas seems incapable of making were suddenly flowing from her. Sort of nice to see but without any explanation a little odd. And only one example. But most of all I want to read these books because of their central characters, particularly Dallas, ... otherwise what's the point in following through the series? I do Not want to be treated to what amounts to entire chapters on the murderer's actions, thought processes, and plans. I will look forward to the next with as much enthusiasm as ever, hopefully this time it will be justified.

    "Heart Touching Excitement"

    Dallas is still kick ass on the job. Knowing who the murderer is from the start adds salt to the excitement of the story. It was an interesting twist in storytelling that absolutely worked! I didn't want the story to end and I can't wait for the next one in the series.

    Story
    "Last hour changed, me or the book?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if my friend also enjoyed murder mystery with a hint of futuristic technology.


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

    No, this book doesn't keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what next, but can they?


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    OH, the Irish voices! She brings half of the book alive!


    If you could rename Thankless in Death, what would you call it?

    Good enough name....


    Any additional comments?

    This started as a good entertaining book about murder and became more and more of a story about the people solve those murders....but remained a very good and entertaining book...just in a way I never expected. With thanks....

    "Enjoyed"

    Just when I thought the series was getting stale JD Robb mixes it up. I loved the different approach. As always, Susan Ericksen is great.

    Story
    "I love the "In Death Series" but..."

    I love the "In Death Series" and I've been waiting impatiently for this one. I loved hearing from Nixie and many of the other favorites. I just wish there had been more interaction with Eve and her friends and less of the killer in this story.

    He was completely unlikeable and got way too much book time. I was glad Eve finally got him, but it took to long, especially since he wasn't very good.

    I loved the award ceremony and the holiday dinner. I'm looking forward to the next book. I'll keep reading them as they come. This wasn't my favorite story, but it wasn't the worst, so I'm good.

    I think Susan Ericksen is the best narrator. I just can't imagine any else voicing Eve and cast. As long as she's reading I'm listening. Keep them coming!

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "Another homerun for J.D. Robb."

    As always I was hooked from the first page. I love all of the main characters in the "in death" series. I can hardly wait for the next book.

    Story
    "Arrgh! Susan Eriksen needs to throttle it back!"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    Robb, yes. Read by Ericksen, not a chance.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Thankless in Death?

    The first screeching sound of the narrators voice. Another would be an hour later when I couldn't stand it any longer and headed for the bookstore.


    Was Thankless in Death worth the listening time?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Couldn't finish the audiobook, went out and bought the book and read it.
