Calculated in Death: In Death Series, Book 36 | [J. D. Robb]

Calculated in Death: In Death Series, Book 36

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.

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....

    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    "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.

    "Great! As Always"
    Would you listen to Calculated in Death again? Why?

    Yes, I love these books. JD Robb Never disappoints and Susan Ericksen is excellent. She makes it seem like you are right there with the characters! I Love the voices.
    Thanks!!!!!

    "Not the best book in the series"

    I still loved the book, but I have listened to all of the books recently in succession and this wasn't my favorite. That being said I still loved it. Susan Erickson does an excellent job narrarating. In fact, she has ruined my other series' that I listen too. They are just not up to her entertaining engaging narration. Really felt this book could have had more depth. Especially at the apprehension of the killer. Would have like to have read a little more about the party and personal interactions. The absolute worst thing about this series, is waiting for the next book to come out.

    "Another Winner!"
    Where does Calculated in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of the best in the series. I love Eve Dallas and Rourke!

    "comfort read"

    Even though it is a new book, this can be count as a comfort read. The series is like a favorite TV drama that does have an arc and has a conclusion for that case every episode. You know the characters very well and you care about them.

    To tell the truth, I felt the murder case was used sort of like a set up to deliver the premier of the movie based on Eve's case most sensationally. In fact the movie premier was used as a trap to catch the main henchman. It's actually interesting that the "sensational" case that became the movie is one of the books I didn't really care for. I have to agree it is movie material, though.

    Anyway a lot of fun with the banter, comrade and love between the characters. NOT a book for first time series readers but a nice addition to the series.

    "Meh"
    Any additional comments?

    I have to agree with some of the other disappointed reviewers. The series is very hit and miss now. This one was a miss for me. There hasn't been a hit for me since Treachery in Death. If we aren't going to get more character fun, at least give us a good mystery. For me, the highlight of the book was Galahad getting pissed off. Enough said.

    "First 2/3 boring, last 1/3 just OK"

    As usual, I had high hopes for another great book. Unfortunately, this was one of the most boring In Death books. If it hadn't picked up towards the end, I would have questioned whether or not JDR had somebody else write it. Also, S.E. decided to narrate this book soooooo sloooowwwlyyyyyy. I thought something was wrong with my iPod!

    "Not Great"

    I loved the series. The story dragged and there wasn't very much action. The vallains were dumb and uninteresting. Book was same old story nothing new. Eve hasn't grown much and all other characters are at the same place as previous books. I probably won't be buying any more of JD Robb. Sorry. I thought I would never not want to buy any more books from this author.

    "A favourite series for me"

    I love this series and its characters!

    It was a bit predictable at times but still, truly enjoyable.
    Ms Ericksen was NOT in top form, sorry to say.

    All in all, a good read (listen). Looking forward to the next one.
