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....

A great story.
I love the In Death series. Can't wait until the next one comes out.
I don't think the story line was quite up Nora's usual standard. I found myself drifting off occasionally and had to use the 30 second rewind button a few times. I found it a little hard to keep the characters or suspects straight as to who was who on a couple of occasions.
Probably not quite as dark as some of her other books, a little bit more of a blue collar crime than a grissly one.
Having said all that, I wouldn't have missed it for the world as this is one of my favourite series...definitely worth the trouble if you are a die hard fan like myself :)
As always, Susan Ericksen did a wonderful job with the narration.
Not really, but I am a person who only can listen to a book once, I am the same way on movies......
As always the way Dallas and all the characters intertwine with each other.
Just the way she talks as the characters themselves
On another trail.......
I don't like sharing personal details to strangers, but I like books.
I like the personal interactions and the sometimes forced reptitions of forced cliches are the parts I like least.
She does all of the Eve Dallas Books and does them well.
listen to old In Death books
Love romance novels and love listening to books while at work make the day go by faster
Great, love the book
all off it
All her perfomrance
great book like all the oethers
One of my favorite audiobooks; well presented; excellent story
I don't like how Susan did Trina; otherwise the characters were excellent.
An interesting story
No, I usually like this author
I think the narration was slow and monotone
All of them, cut the whole book in my opinion
How can I get a refund?
It was hard to follow/understand without reading previous books from the series. There was too much of a back story to catch up on
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.
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 love reading the series but I particularly find it easy to listen to it while I was doing my housework. It made the chores so much easier to get thro!
I am a great fan of Eve and I also love the chemistry between her and Roarke.
Eve of course.
I love Eve's sense of humour, be it intentional or not.
These books are very enjoyable, the characters are well thought out and pull you into the story, I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing how the character of Eve has developed throughout the books.
The narrator is exceptionally good.
"jd robb rock"
this is one of the best cop series
how all the murders were connect with one man
she does the best voices
greed is everything and it kill
"Love the book, the narration not so much"
I love the In Death series. Calculated in Death is as brilliant as the previous 35. I also have it on kindle
They are all my favourites! Roarke and Eve obviously as the main characters but I love Peabody and McNab and their relationship.
Her voice/tone is too hard, the voices are not how i imagine them (but i expect that's impossible to achieve and would be different for each reader).
"Lt Dallas and Rourke are a winning combination"
I eagerly await each new book in this series.
The characters are well developed and believable. As a reader you see the characters growing and filling out, becoming more interesting and their interaction is amusing but the books work well on a suspense level too.
The books are set in the future but the plots are very this world but with a subtle twist.
I would strongly recommend any book in this series as an enjoyable read for those who like their books to be entertaining.
The reader for this series is an excellent choice she projects just the right amount attitude for the characters.
"Calculated in Death"
brilliant. J D does it again, and Susan Ericson nails the voices in the audio version. Looking forward to the next book.
Well worth "a read" or "A listen"
The plot was engaging but after a few hours I just couldn't continue listening because of the appalling narration.
Not with the same narrator
Badly written, poor storyline and the narrator could only shout. Don't bother with this one!
