Eve Dallas is the tough lieutenant hot on his trail, but this is unlike any case she’s ever been assigned - or any killer she’s ever pursued. A police sketch based on eye-witness testimony reveals the killer has green skin, swollen red eyes, goblin ears, and a dislocated jaw-structure that defies the human form. Is it a mask? Is it make-up? Or is the explanation more sinister? Dallas faces off against multiple suspects - all of them students of medicine capable of precisely slicing the ears, noses, and eyes of the three victims. But who had the motive? More importantly, what kind of rogue science are these healers practicing?

I haven't read the book. I love books on tape.
It was a great story.
Yes. I bake and listen to books n tape. So it was the perfect length.
Love the narrator.
I have in the past, read J. D. Robb and thus had a clear mental picture of how the characters would speak and the emotions they shared or chose not to share. I regret to say my mental picture in no way matched the narration. Sorry Ms. King, I did not enjoy your performance. I will need to continue reading J. D. Robb on my own.
Again, nice that Eve is a bit softer--retains her edge but not constantly complaining and fighting about everything. Typical Eve Dallas story but as always, a good listen and good performance.
Short but Good
Watching the character turn into his demon self
She is so good what else can I say
I loved the interaction between Dallas and Peabody over this problem
Well worth the money I paid for this book.
Sometimes in a series the short stories stuck in between the longer ones are trite and seem to rush the story too much; not so in this J.D. Robb mystery. I enjoyed this story and, of course, also enjoyed the Susan Ericsson's narration.
The twisted "bad guy" that really was just like any other bad guy; selfish, jealous of others, determine to have what he wants no matter how it hurts someone.
At the very end when Roarke beats down the bad guy with his fists when a stunner wouldn't put him down.
This is a great one as always. Susan Ericksen and Sean Crisden are the two best narraters I have listened to.

This Eve Dallas story is not one of JDs best. It has nothing new in it and does not hold the readers interest. It seems rushed and the story has little depth, no location changes, no interesting characters and hardly any inclusion of York. It is not a mystery or an adventure. The author was not creative at all and the story was very short and flat. Sorry.
The narrator put me off so badly I didn't get more than a quarter of the way through. She sounded like a bad police interrogator.
I have listened to this "series" twice and enjoyed the second go around as much as the first. Looking forward to not only the next book, but also lisitening to the series in another couple years.
This was not a in depth book, it was more of a short story.
"The Black Box"
There really wasn't one.
The basics of the book were all there it just didn't seem developed. It was like a rush through.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
