Publisher's Summary

Conducting a top secret investigation into the death of a fellow police officer has Lieutenant Eve Dallas treading on dangerous ground. She must put professional ethics before personal loyalties. But when a dead body is placed outside her home, Eve takes the warning personally. With her husband, Roarke, watching her every move, Eve is drawn into the most dangerous case of her career. Every step she takes makes her question her own sense of right and wrong - and brings her closer to a confrontation with humanity's most seductive form of evil.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "Ceremony In Death No.5"

    I've now read and listened to the first five books, and they are all terrific, I've fallen in love with Eve & Roarke, Mavis, Peabody, Feeney. The stories just draw you in, I find myself talking back to the book, and the narrator was terrific, never change that. Now I'm off to read Vengeance in Death.

    Story
    "Consistently Incredible"
    What did you love best about Ceremony in Death?

    I've been a cop almost 26 years and although her setting is futuristic, cops remain trie to their character. I'm loving the development of Peabody and Eve's role as mentor.

    "Good story - hideous voices"
    Would you listen to Ceremony in Death again? Why?

    No! The voices that the narrartor gives to the various characters are hideous. It's like listening to a bad cartoon. Peabody sounds like Velma from Scooby Doo, Trina the hairdresser sounds like one of the monsters from Roz from Monster's Inc. Commander Witney and Feeney are both given horrible voices and she has Eve Dallas yell ALL THE TIME. I love the stories but the voices are just awful. And the mispronunciation of French words is a personal pet peeve.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I appreciated the continued character development.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Ericksen?

    Anyone!


    Any additional comments?

    The sex scenes between Dallas and Roarke are irritating. We get it. Get back to the whodunit and leave the descriptive sex to erotica.

    "Technical issues have pretty much ruined this book"

    The story is great - the performance is quite good I think....but technical issues have destroyed my enjoyment of it. I have downloaded the book 3 times with the same result - choppy narration with frequent missing words or garbled paragraphs. I have never been this disappointed in an Audible product. I will probably request my credit back.
    If your copy is working all right - please do enjoy this story - it is well worth the time.

    "Secondary Characters were my favorite."
    Any additional comments?

    These are not "heavy" storyline books, but are fun to listen to. Peabody and Rourke were my favorites in this one with their subtle humor as well as the magic/evil aspect. As always, the narrator makes these books their best!

    "Not my favorite in the series"
    Where does Ceremony in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book probably ranks 3 stars compared to all the other audiobooks in this series and 4-5 compared to any other audio book. I love Susan Erickson.


    If you’ve listened to books by J. D. Robb before, how does this one compare?

    I'm not a big fan of this storyline, OR Eves actions and behavior in this book. In all honesty she frustrates the hell out of me in this book. She is so bigheaded and stubborn.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Jamie tries to break into the house.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I kept having to turn it off because Eve was peeving me off.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read this book, and listened to it on audio once already. I am currently making my way through the series again on audio and have to admit this is not one of my favorite in the series. Eve has always been very single minded and focused. But it bothers me in this book (and others as well, but particularly in this book) how she thinks she knows who the murderer is and just hammers at them. She has no regard to how her actions will affect the people she is hammering, they are innocent of all crimes but she beats them until they are broken because she wants it to be them. The way she goes after Chaz makes me want to smack the hell out of her. The way she snaps at Peabody for having an opinion makes me want to slap the hell out of her. And in all honestly has made me distrust the police in general. Because I know this is how “real” police officers are. They get their teeth into something and refuse to admit that they may be wrong. Instead of trying to find the truth objectively, they try to find the truth to support their opinions. Even though in each book Eve finds her man she manages to screw up other people’s lives in the process, and she just doesn’t care. She makes a comment in the book that she “isn’t a good person” and in some areas she is right, she isn’t. BUT with all the frustrations her actions bring me in this book I’m still addicted. LOL
