Crack another case with Eve Dallas.
©2007 J. D. Robb; (P)2007 Brilliance Audio
I have been going through this series in order and found this book to be one of my favorites. It allows us to see into the characters of the books even more. I love meeting friends from Rourke's past! This book had me guessing until the very end! Great read (or listen).
I love the narrator of these books and can't understand why many don't like her. I notice in the next book the reviews complain about her change in reading style and I can't help but wonder if she read some of the reviews and decided to try something new. I have listened to them in order and have grown to love Eve and Roarke and Peabody and McNabb and all the rest. Susan Erickson if you read these reviews, just stick to your style. I love it and feel like I'm putting on a comfortable robe for a good escape into fantasy and adventure when I start a new Eve Dallas book.
I am an avid reader so for me to purchase an audio of a book that I've read it has to be special. Betrayal In Death is another great audio. I have listened to J.D. Robb's in Death series multiple times and am still entertained by Susan Erickson's characterizations. Out of 44 in Death books with the 45th Calculated in Death due in Feb. 2013, I am rarely disappointed. This one's a keeper!
I have read all the in Death series multiple times and do purchase the unabridged audios of the most interesting reads, this one made the list. Betrayal in Death has a fast paced plot, with lots of investigative action and trademark Eve & Roarke byplay. With a surprising guest Robb gives us another treat into Roarke's interesting past. I love the supporting characters and Robb teases us with more Summerset/Eve interaction. The Feds get involved in this one and Eve kicks butt!
Susan Erickson's interpretation of the text and characters is spot on, she keeps it believable. Erickson must have a multiple personality disorder because I could swear that they 'exist'. Erickson doesn't forget which character she is speaking for and stays within their personality. Great job.
Robb spent a great deal of time with the plot of this crime and it shows, I laughed and cried but to tell you why would spoil the story.
Believe me when I say this audio would be a positive addition to the in Death fans and to those who are new to Robb a great start. If you need to judge my taste, some of my other in Death favs were: Survivor, Treachery, Kindred, Vengeance and New York to Dallas.
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.
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
Yes, most of the early dialogue between Eve and Roarke was humorous - refreshing
As always a treat to listen to and a welcome spruce to an otherwise mindless day
This one made me cry at the end, the emotion and pain was heartfelt and easily translated through while listening.
One of my favorites!
I thoroughly enjoy the J D Robb book series, and they are ones I'll either read and/or listen to first.
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.
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.
It's hard to pinpoint one best thing, but I like learning more about Roarke's past.
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!
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.
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.
I have a long commute during the week and listening to great novels always help the time go by more quickly. I love this website!
I just love the character "Eve Dallas" and the person doing the reading is always consistent.
Susan, you are the best. If they ever do a tv show on this book, you have to be Eve!
I wish! I can never listen to a book in one sitting no matter how much I love it (LOL)
More J.D. Robb/Eve Dallas!!
"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.
