    I can't believe how addictive these books are. I can sit for hours listening to them. It is very well done.

    "Another good book in the series"

    I may have a bit of bias here as I really like J. D. Robb's writing in this series which is just a little sic-fi but a lot of good old fashioned action mystery. I also like the main characters. Dogged detective Eve Dallas is a bit OCD as she has to get to real conclusions. Off 'the streets' she is the Walmart woman rather than the fashonesta...I would bet she has mostly jeans and sweats.While she has many make friends (well, she is a cop!), she is very distrustful of anything beyond...well, until Irishman Roake invaded her world.

    Roake is a rich, handsome rogue with more than a shady past. With his insitfulness and intelligence, a well as his pals from the past, he is her equal who helps out with some of her sleuthing. He sees inside her ostrich thick shell and 'handles' her gently and persistently. Think Nick and Nora Charles of The Thin Man movies only make it more Nora and Nick as persue the bad guys as well as a lusty romance.

    Dallas has new partner who always calls her 'Sir'. Roake has his disdaining butler.

    Along with a good mystery there is much dry humor.

    Am I reading these in order?

    Of course not! For which I must thank author Robb who makes each story come to a conclusion with no cliff hangers! (Yes, the romance aspect not conclude, who cares? I think it's like when a friend tells you about what happened yesterday and then as you talk, remembrances are interjected.

    Listen to it as you drive to the beach or while you are watching the kids play. The reader is great with voices clearly detected!

    Damn Audible.com and the great summer sale!

    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    The narration was excellent!
    She is able to effortlessly move between the personalities (including accents) of the characters in such a believable way!

    If you could sum up Ceremony in Death in three words, what would they be?

    Edgy, Gripping and Sexy


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eve as usual wont give up never backs down.


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

    Only other In Death titles she is brilliant in all.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Eve found the body outside her home.Her personal outrage is put aside as she deals with a professional situation.

    "In Death, Ingenius!"

    I absolutely love this series. Starting from the beginning, now to book 5, it is a continuous story of a hardnosed cop and her efforts to solve crimes and have a life. Her friends are dynamic and I laughed often. It has a little of that "this has a formula" feel, but the story is so intriguing, that it matters little.

    Would you listen to Ceremony in Death again? Why?

    No, probably not. It was interesting the first time but not enjoyably so.


    What other book might you compare Ceremony in Death to and why?

    This is not my favorite genre of books; I'm uncomfortable with the subject matter. I read it as a part of the this mystery series, to continue on with the characters and their story.


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

    It is comparable to her others in this series.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "Should be TV Series"

    I continue to enjoy the characters and plots of this series. Also I have previously criticised Susan Ericksen's narration however, it is becoming more familiar and I enjoy her tongue in cheek portrayals.

    These are all good, lighthearted reads and if you enjoy one you know you will enjoy the rest of the series.
