Publisher's Summary

At the luxurious Roarke Palace Hotel, a maid walks into suite 4602 for the nightly turndown - and steps into her worst nightmare. A killer leaves her dead, strangled by a thin silver wire. He's Sly Yost, a virtuoso of music and murder. A hit man for the elite. Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows him well. But in this twisted case, knowing the killer doesn't help solve the crime. Because there's someone else involved. Someone with a more personal motive. And Eve must face a terrifying possibility - that the real target may, in fact, be her husband Roarke.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "Great Story By a Great Narrator"
    What did you love best about Betrayal in Death?

    It's hard to pinpoint one best thing, but I like learning more about Roarke's past.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Again, hard to pick just one. All the characters mesh with each other and play off each other so well. Roarke is awesome, but what is he without Eve? Peabody and McNabb. Feeney! Summerset! Mavis! Trina!


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She manages to articulate the characters so well that I know who is speaking even without dialogue tags. Even the two male Irish voices are distinct. Excellent job.

    Any additional comments?

    The narrator changed to how she read Peabody's part and does no sound like she did in earlier "Death Series" books. I miss the old Peabody.

    What made the experience of listening to Betrayal in Death the most enjoyable?

    I just love the character "Eve Dallas" and the person doing the reading is always consistent.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    Susan, you are the best. If they ever do a tv show on this book, you have to be Eve!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish! I can never listen to a book in one sitting no matter how much I love it (LOL)


    Any additional comments?

    More J.D. Robb/Eve Dallas!!

    Story
    "Betrayal in Death"

    "Betrayal in Death" is the 12 book in the 'In Death' series, in this book someone has killed a maid, while Eve and Roarke are at an event in the same hotel, the Roarke Palace Hotel. Dallas is on the case of a murderer; a friend from Roarke's past has shown up. Roarke's mind is on finding out who has killed one of his employee's and why, at the same time keeping his old friend entertained. Well under his nose people are out there trying to out smart him. The listen gets the chance to see more in to Roarke's character. The book is classic J.D. Robb, a great murder mystery with romance mixed in.

    I enjoy this series so much. Susan Ericksen puts you into Robb's story. You can see each character and get to know them. The details of the stories makes you want to be there to watch up close.

    It is a perfect package.

    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.
