Celebrity in Death: In Death, Book 34 | [J. D. Robb]

Celebrity in Death: In Death, Book 34

Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground - and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy....

Publisher's Summary

Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground - and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy over rubbing shoulders with Hollywood royalty. Eve, on the other hand, is more likely to roll her eyes than have stars in them. But she has to admit it’s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing K. T. Harris, the actress who plays Peabody - drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director’s luxury building. Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K.T. had made an embarrassing scene during dinner. She clearly liked being the center of attention. Now she’s at the center of a crime scene - and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "Celebrity celebrates Eve Dallas once again"

    I've been a big fan of Nora Roberts writing as J.D. Robb from the very first "In Death" novel.

    She's chosen over time to make Eve just a little more vulnerable, just a touch softer in her relationship with Rourke, and has added more more dimension to her characters in this novel.

    Eve and her partner Delia have grown and have become much more than just a working relationship.

    Another great novel in the best detective series out there. Can't wait for the next one.

    When are they going to make these novels into either a TV series or movies?

    "Good but predictable. . . dare I say reliable?"

    I love this series, you can count on J.D. Robb to weave an entertaining tale (with the exception of some of the short stories she's written for compilations). The thing is, that it is the same formula everytime. Someone is murdered, Eve has interactions with Morris and D--khead. Mavis and Leonardo and sometimes Bella make a cameo. Trina freaks her out and intimidates her with the girly stuff she doesn't get. She deals with Mira and Roarke about her past, or she has nightmares about her parents. She has an awkward or affectionate moment with Feeney. She has snarky, funny moments with Sommerset, Peabody and McNabb. She uses Nadine to trick the killer. The Candy Thief rears its head. There's rough, needy sex and usually affectionate and loving sex. These books are like my favorite pair of jeans. I know what to expect and love them. They make me happy and I've never felt let down. Susan Ericksen does a fantastic job, as usual.

    "This woman knows how to write. Keeps on doing it!"
    What did you love best about Celebrity in Death?

    I loved everything about this book. The pace was good the storyline was strong and Eve Dallas draws you in!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Celebrity in Death?

    When Peabody and her man are sitting at the breakfast table and after the deep discussion about how they feel about one another, and Eve's call for them to come into work, they run off to the bedroom for a quicky!


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

    I have heard them all to date and they just keep getting better and better!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It makes me laugh because these characters have sense of humor to make them seem more real.


    Any additional comments?

    Hurry up with the next release, I need my Eve Dallas fix!!!!

    "Narrator lackluster ...Plot was predictable"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No not really


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Romanov by Massey


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator was on her game for the ancillary characters but Dallas was lackluster


    Was Celebrity in Death worth the listening time?

    Debatable


    Any additional comments?

    "Ordinary"
    What did you like best about Celebrity in Death? What did you like least?

    Eve lost her sponk. She is an ordinary by the book cop.


    What was most disappointing about J. D. Robb’s story?

    Story was fine. Read like a mystery. The original series has changed drastically. It is like watching an ordinary cop show. Nothing special to sell it. At one point I could not wait for the next in the series. Now, well I can wait for the sale.


    Could you see Celebrity in Death being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Nothing to separate it from other shows since Eve is no longer a Zena wounded healer cop.

    "NAIL BITING !"
    What did you love best about Celebrity in Death?

    I couldn';t work out the killer until they were revealed...I was so intriqued in how Dallas figures it out...Outstanding !


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The whole cast, Dallas, Peabody, Rourke (ohhhh) McNab they are all brilliant.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She is as always a fantastic Dallas, but her rendition of Peabody still amazes me so different and unique. She makes the cast of characters come to life.

    Any additional comments?

    Good story in the series. Fast paced and interesting. Explores the relationships between the characters a bit more. Highly recommend this book and the entire series. This one touched on the movie industry in the future, which was interesting. Pretty mellow but a good one!

    "Dreadful!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Had I known that J.D. Robb was a nom de plume for Nora Roberts, I would never have bought it. That said, the phony lingo- wrist unit for watch, blocker for pain medication, etc. is off-putting and pretentious. The narrator is good - that's about all I can say.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    irritation
