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.

    "Didn't like narrator"

    Sorry, but I did not like Susan Ericksen. Her accent on various characters was so annoying I stopped listening.

    "Maybe it's me"

    This is, as far as I can remember, the first Audible book I could not finish. I have listened to hundreds of Audible books, including at least a couple of J.D. Robb selections. I am also having a problem getting through The Stand by Stephen King, and I really like his novels. So maybe it is just me.

    "I guess everyone can not be great"
    What did you like best about Celebrity in Death? What did you like least?

    Nothing hit be as a best. The interviews were boring. The lack of suspense a disappointment.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. D. Robb again?

    One disappointment will not stop me from enjoying future books.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    She is always good in character voices. Sadly, this story line makes it difficult to tell the actor from our regular Roak.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. I would see others in the series.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "Dallas is back"

    I really enjoy the Eve Dallas series but this one is the best because she's stopped with the "poor little me's" and is back being the great character she really is.

    "A poor performance -- narrator destroys story"
    What would have made Celebrity in Death better?

    Improving the the quality of the narrator would probably make this book tolerable. After listening to audio books for the past three to four years, this is the worst experience I have had and the only book I could not finish or develop any interest or understanding as to the plot.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. D. Robb again?

    Probably not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The voice of the narrator was so distracting; it felt like a complete mismatch with the character.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Celebrity in Death?

    Don't know -- could not get that far into the story.

    "Never a dull moment w/ Eve and the gang!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Of course, and have, many times! Eve Dallas, her hubby Roarke and her whole case of characters are hard to surpass...JD Robb aka Nora Roberts writes relationships, not just those between men and women, but those between families and friends, better than anyone else I've ever read. She keeps you on your toes w/ the suspense, lol with the wise cracking, and snorting with the epic stupidity of mankind. How can you NOT love these books?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, Ha. That's not as easy as it should be. I want to say Roake, because...he's ROARKE. But truly, it's Eve. She's a woman who has overcome so much in her life, and while she has let it harden her outer shell, and she carries scars, she's not let it ruin her life. It's been fun over the years to see her reluctantly gather friends and loved ones in spite of herself, and see her grow even more into the woman she is. She's what every woman aspires to be.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    Peabody. LOVE the way she does her voice...it kills me. I can just see Peabody's face sometims when she's talking its so vivid. If they ever cast a movie, I don't think I could watch. Susan Ericksen has made these characters come to life for me so vividly they can't ever be replaced. I originally started listening because I was 3 books behind...ha. I loved her portrayal of the characters so much that I now own EVERY one of the books in audio. Even though I'd read them all from day 1, it was like starting from scratch because they BECAME these voices for me.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Celebrity In Death ~ or was it?


    Any additional comments?

    I've bought many other audio books just because Susan Ericksen narrated them, she's that awesome to listen to. Sometimes I'd swear that more than one person HAS to be narrating!

    A pure joy


    What did you like best about this story?

    too much to list


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Susan makes it exciting and interest. I love when she does Rouke's voice

    "Another great book."

    Once again J. D. Robb has brought us an exciting and entertaining experience. Susan Ericksen brings the characters to life without ever missing a beat. A joy to listen to.

    "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.
