Big Jack

In New York City in 2059, someone is pursuing missing gems from a decades-old heist...someone who's willing to kill for them.

    "Duped into buying this one"

    It's my own fault. I did not read the reviews of this book. I was curious that a J.D. Robb book about Eve Dallas was given a title without "in death" in it and I was looking for something to listen to until my credits were available so it is my own fault that I spent money on a book I've already read and I wish I had my $10 back. It's not about the story which was worthy as always, Audible should have made it clear that this book was sold as part of another book ( Remember When) in their description of this book.

    "Remember When - WARNING"

    I am bitterly disappointed with this book. It was written in 2003, not 2010, and is simply the second half of the book "Remember When" which isn't available on Audible, but would be Book 17.5 in the publisher's weird numbering scheme.

    If I had used a book credit for this I would have demanded a refund. So far this novel has cost me $24.99 for the "Remember When" WMA version from Clear Audio Books, and now $7.34 from Audible.

    Publishers who mislead their customers in this way are going to regret it in the long run. They are just being greedy.

    "For Dallas fans, half a book is better than all"

    I like the In Death books, but I'm not particularly fond of the Roberts genre. So I wasn't looking forward to the first half of Remember When, in which the first half called Hot Rocks is a current day story setting up the back story to Dallas' adventures. I was pleased to find Big Jack available separately.

    The book stands on its own, and has plenty of narrative to catch the reader up on events of Hot Rocks. It also contains some great In Death moments, including Peabody's attempts to adapt to plain clothes in her new role as detective.

    "Big Jack the Conclusion to "Hot Rocks""

    I actually "read" the book "Hot Rocks" and so I was pleased to see that it actually led into an Eve Dallas book conclusion. "Hot Rocks" was originally published as "Remember When" so I already knew that, since it said so in the front pages of the book. I was able to then listen to it through my Library-2-Go downloadable loan books. I jumped at the chance to get "Big Jack," as I am an Eve Dallas fan.
    "Big Jack" is a satisfying conclusion to the mystery.

    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 winner from J.D. Robb. This is very interesting and I always enjoy the wonderful characters in her books. It's a great story.

    "Even better the second time around"

    I forgot I had read this book already and bought the audio version. Glad I did! It is one of my favorite mysteries in the "in Death" series and hearing the familar character's voices made it even better the second time around and I usually don't read/listen to books twice.

    "Hopefully better"

    I own all the In Death books on audio. I got them all right here from Audible.com. This is the second book from Remember When. I was eager to download this book because the Remember When has technical glitches. It cuts off in the middle of sentences when switching chapters. After repeatedly reporting the glitch to Audible and redownloading "new" files, it still had the same glitches. I'm hoping with this file it won't cut off in the middle of sentences when moving to a new chapter.

    "Eve and Rorark are Great"
    What did you love best about Big Jack?

    I love everything about these books so it is hard to pick a single episode. If you like the series, you'll love this book


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eve is always my favorite. Peabody was cute in this one since she was just becoming a detective but still I have to say Eve.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked them all. How many ways can Eve figure out the murder scene with Roark without having Roark try to kiss her. It is just too funny to listen to. I like all the scenes that Roark shows up.


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

    No.

    "Popcorn for the Brain"

    I love books that teach me new things about history, science or ethical dilemmas. I love books that make me think and test assumptions. I love to have my opinions and convictions challenged and stringently tested. This book has absolutely none of those attributes!

    Every once and awhile I love a kick-back book that entertains me while not challenging me in any way. This whole series qualifies. The narrator is absolutely perfect for this genre. Yes there is some gratuitous sex from time to time, but what one of us doesn't secretly like a little bit of that.

    If you want to be in a true, happy brainless state for a short period, these books are consistently excellent.

    "A great listen"

    This is the sequel to Hot Rocks. It's also an In Death book, I think 17.5. It's nice because you get a peek at Laine and Max from Hot Rocks 50 years later. It keeps your attention and is a good way to breeze through household chores. It would make a great beach book too. Susan Ericksen does a great job.
