Thankless in Death: In Death, Book 37 | [J. D. Robb]

Thankless in Death: In Death, Book 37

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.

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.

    "Delivers on every count"

    The bar is set very high for this series, this book includes all the elements you expect and adds new possibilities. This book also adds depth to many of the familiar dynamics, like life long friendships that ripen over time with experience. As I listened to Susan Ericksen narrate wonderfully again, I laughed out loud, I cried and I felt I'd been taken by the story into the world these complex characters live in. Great job again!

    "A Bit Too Graphic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I truly enjoy this series but I found this one a bit too graphic. Usually the murders have already been committed when Lt. Dallas shows up to solve. This one the reader had to live through the violence.


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

    The voices of the characters - Amazing!

    "ANOTHER WINNER!"

    I love these books. This one was as good as the rest. It was great that there was a lot about their family in this one, I really like that side of the stories. Her style is very much the same in all these books but she changes them up just enough to make you want to listen more. Narrator is also fantastic. I'm so used to the voices and the characters if any one else was to narrate the books it would definatly not be the same. Can't wait for the next one! To bad we can't get another one each month!

    "Another great book by JD Robb"

    JD Robb (Nora Roberts) has created characters in her In Death series that grow through out the series. Eve and Roark now have a big extended family with Roark's real family from Ireland and all of the close friends that Eve and Roark have together. "It's hard work having all these friends." And Eve and her marriage rules truly are inventive and creative from a character that never really had a real family. Susan Ericksen is my favorite narrator!!! I have listened to almost everything that she has read. I was afraid that it would confuse the characters in the books, but she has a wonderful talent and can create all those characters!!! I really loved this Thanksgiving book. I will listen to this book probably 2 or 3 more times before the next In Death book comes out!! Hurry up already!!!!

    I have always been a reader, until my 3-hr a day round trip commute. Now, I am a listener - and I am hooked on audio books!

    "Another Great Book - Robb is Consistent"

    This was another great 'in death' book. Again, the characters continue to be spot-on, and yet still grow. The only reason I didn't give this one 5 stars for the story was because she wrote the descriptions of the suspect's actions and emotions so clearly, and he was so totally, utterly hateable. This is the single-most whiney, self-absorbed, selfish, narcissistic character I've ever read about, and he's SO frustratingly annoying!! But the story was really very good, very Robb. I love the way she can have Dallas investigate totally bizarre cases, like the Icove affair, and then a 'simple' murder, and both are just as fascinating to hear when she works through and solve them. I also thought that the narrator was superb - she conveyed emotions so well - she really made the story come alive. I highly recommend this!!

    "Unpleasant"

    I found the story contrived and unpleasant. Even worse, the narrator was awful. She had to yell all conversation by one character in order distinguish it from the main character. Unpleasant to listen to. Not up to Robb's previous work but after 36 its no wonder.

    Story
    "No. 37 and still going strong!!"
    Would you listen to Thankless in Death again? Why?

    Yes, I definitely will listen to it again. Susan Ericksen as always is FABULOUS! I don't believe there is any other narrator who could do these charactors any better! The story line is a bit gruesome at times but nothing that we haven't encountered in other books in this series and the continuing growth of the charactors and their relationships with each other make them feel like family to me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gosh, so many...obviously Eve and Roarke stand out at the top of the list, but in this story bringing the charactor of Nicksy back into the mix was a wonderful choice, and of course all of Roarke's family as well. But you just can't do one of these books without Peabody, McNab, Finney, and of course Somerset and Galahad!


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She is the epitome of exactitude with her performances. You know exactly who is speaking each line! She is a master of intonation, and skill in vocal performance!


    Who was the most memorable character of Thankless in Death and why?

    I'm going to say Nicksey in this one, even though her part in the story was relatively small, she had a great emotional impact.


    Any additional comments?

    I read some of the other reviews before purchasing this audio book, and I really don't understand the comments in some of them. I am glad, very glad I didn't take any of the less than complimentary comments to heart and let them change my mind about purchasing the book.
