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.

Great, great, great
All of them. I would totally start over with a new set of characters
I have been a fan of this series for many years. Up to this point I have read them all. This book was filled with profanity and 4-letter words. It was as if the author did not have enough story line and used profanity to fill the pages. If that is the kind of book you like, then this one is for you. For myself, I will stick with Vince Flynn, Lee Child, Mike Connelly & the other mystery writers who truly have a story to tell.
Hey, this is one of the twice yearly Eve Dallas mysteries set in the near future. It is not literature, but not everyone is a Hemingway or Falkner. Eve and friends are up to their badges in it again.
Most of the Eve Dallas mysteries, while a series. can easily be read as a stand-alone as is this one, but reading or listening to the book from which the
I love the voices that Susan Ericksen comes up with. It just isn't the same to read these books. I have to listen to them and hear the voices that go with Roarke and Peabody and even the Commander. The Story was good as well. Did miss Summerset. Another great book in the IN DEATH series!!
Another captivating book by Robb. Never a dull moment. Hard to put down
I would recommend the book. I am going to make one review so this will apply to all. I listened to the first book and I was hooked, I had to listen to more.
I would recommend any listener to listen to the series.
Ms. Ericksen bought the characters to life,each one seemed to have a distinctive voice and personality. I could always tell who's who.
Every book had a scene in it that had you moved if not to tears almost to tears, but always to laughter.
I listened to the first book to the last and I loved everyone. If you are going to listened to any of the books start from beginning to end you won't be disappointed.
Susan Ericksen is a master in bringing these characters alive. I am Irish and really enjoy Roarke's accent as one of the main characters. Peabody is another endearing voice. I have read most of Eve Dallas' excapades but enjoy them again listening to Susan Ericksen weave her magic. This latest book doesn't disappoint.
I love to read espionage and criminal thrillers. My lifestyle doesn't allow time to sit and read so audio books is really an enjoyment.
Yes, it was a very well written episode and it had a little different twist than normal.
Really none of this series is quite like this book.
This book was more about detective work, outside of the main characters. Even though all of the normal stars were included in the book. None of them were really involved, physically.
There is no excitment and little to no feeling in the new characters and the regulars fell flat. There seemed to be no inspiration just meeting a deadline.
I will continue to with this series. I like the base characters and until this book have found the stories great and engaging.
I love the inflection, the tone and the individual cadance Ms Erickson give each person
"an excellent story!!!!"
This audiobook is another brilliant story written by JD Robb/Nora Roberts. And told by Susan Eriksson. As Susan has read all of the previous books in the in death series you pick up on the characters she has created over the years. I listen to my audiobook in the car whilst driving a great alternative to the radio.
This was a light storyline after the emotional rollercoaster of the last book so it was quite welcome. Still a great story though and love seeing Nadine coming to the rescue.
"The story is great"
I love Nora Roberts and I think her in death series is brilliant. This instalment in the long running series doesn't disappoint. The story is fast-past and the language colourful as Nora Roberts, writing as JD Robb, takes you into the future with Eve and Roarke.
The only thing that let it down in my opinion was the narration, which is why I gave it 4 stars rather than 5. I have to stress that this is just my personal taste. I find certain US accents a little grating and I didn't enjoy this one. I think I will read the next instalment rather than get it as an audiobook.
