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.

    Story
    "Who betrayed who the most? And why?!?"

    Lt. Dallas actually knew the identity of the killer early in the case but it didn't seem to help!!! This was a very tense, emotional story. I loved it. Ms. Ericksen was nice, without overdoing the accents that were required.

    "J.D. Robb is always good."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Great story and excellent narration. My daughter and I listen to audible books when driving or working on our crafts. We can always trust Susan's presentation and J.D. Robb's a great writer.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. I am steadily making my way through all of her J.D. Robb readings. Excellent as always.

    Story
    "Yost"

    Yost makes a great villain. He is a pro and it takes Eve and Roark to stop him. Magdalena's son is a true louse and all the really bad guys are so rotten.
    Mick is the only exception because he remembers his loyalties. I realize his death was probably inevitable but hate it!

    "Good overall story"

    As usual I enjoy the overall story that Nora Roberts or in this case her synonym J. D. Robb writes. However, it alway loses points with me because it's laced with so much sex and sexual innuendo. She has such wonderful story's I wish she would take a lesson from Clive Clussler and realize that her storytelling would actually be stronger without all the intimate details that I must fast forward through. I know her work is known for it but it would be so much better with out it. Otherwise the story is great and I enjoyed the suspense and excitement through out. I just wish there was a PG rated version of her books.

    "Another good plot"

    All the same characters that we know and love. Another good story, I can never see the how and the who, despite having written so many they are all different and clever. Keep it up! X

    Story
    "The Tempestuous Tribute"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Betrayal in Death to be better than the print version?

    NEVER!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    For this one, Mick and McNabb. It was refreshing to finally have him spew his passion for Peabody. MICK! He brought the best I have seen of Roarke thus far. Better yet to come I'm sure.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The bribe of Jamaican rum hits home with me but I must say when Mick was stabbed. I sat gaping. Not often any development has me reacting like that


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, most of the early dialogue between Eve and Roarke was humorous - refreshing


    Any additional comments?

    As always a treat to listen to and a welcome spruce to an otherwise mindless day

    "Sad Ending!"

    This one made me cry at the end, the emotion and pain was heartfelt and easily translated through while listening.

    One of my favorites!

    Story
    "Another good J D Robb book"
    Where does Betrayal in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I thoroughly enjoy the J D Robb book series, and they are ones I'll either read and/or listen to first.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As with all the books in this series, there are plots, twists and turns. The ending is going to be the same, but the getting to the end is excellent.


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

    Susan Ericksen brings the voice to the books; I don't know of another narrator that be as good as she is with this series.


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

    No.

    "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.
