Publisher's Summary

On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, a woman lies dead at the bottom of a brownstone’s basement steps, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.

A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the brownstone, she knows Marta’s murder is the work of a killer who’s trained, yet not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

Eve learns that on the day of her murder Marta was assigned to work on three audits, and begins to suspect that she was killed to cover up fraudulent activity. Eve is good at catching criminals, not crunching numbers, but luckily, she has her billionaire husband, Roarke, to figure out which companies in Marta’s files aren’t on the up-and-up.

When someone steals the files from Marta’s office, Eve must immerse herself in Roarke’s world of big business to figure out who’s cruel and callous enough to hire a hit on an innocent woman. And as the killer’s violent streak starts to escalate, Eve knows she has to draw him out, even if it means using herself as bait....

    What did you like best about Calculated in Death? What did you like least?

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

    She does all of the Eve Dallas Books and does them well.

    "I love Eve and Roarke"

    I love all of the characters the are so integral to the stories of the In Death series that Ms Roberts could write about "a week in the lives" type story and I would still love it. Great as always and again as always no one could ever, ever replace Susan Ericksen as narrator.

    "in Death Series"

    The J. D. Robb "in Death" series is superb, well worth listening to over and over again (as I and my friends have found). Susan Ericksen, the narrator, is excellent; the best I've ever heard as a wizard of many voices. In this series, you get to know all the characters and love them and enjoy their adventures (and humor).

    "Narrator ruined this book for me!"

    The story was gripping but I almost stopped listening because of Susan Ericksen's narration. The voice of the detective partner, Peabody, was so annoying and distracting that I didn't want to hear it anymore. Some of her other characters were equally as annoying. Won't listen to another book with her as narrator.

    "I want MORE!"

    Love this series. I have so much trouble waiting for the next new book.

    It is so good to hear Susan Ericksen back to normal. The voices add so much to the characters and detract from them when the voices aren't right.

    Keep them coming.

    "Another good book in the In Death Series"

    This wasn't my favorite story in the series, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. There was less Roarke than usual and I missed that. Ericksen is absolutely amazing. You can easily identify which of the main characters is talking when she performs. She is so talented I plan to look for more books narrated by her.
