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?

This was my first try at an audible book. If the others I have were not free I would not be tempted to get more. Slow pace of reader and the interpretations of the characters did not match what was in my head from all the previous books.
If you are a die hard In Death fan you must get threw it to complete the series. However it is not one of J.D.'s better efforts.
Why such a heavy accent for Roark? A person that is suppose to have a hint of the old country in his voice should not sound like he came out of a Lucky Charms cereal box.
Yes I would say it is better because you get someone to read it to you live and they give you all the emotions of the characters.
My favorite character is Peobody. She is very confident in herself and knows her job well.
None in particular. I love the series
I prefer the audio version because it's easier to get caught up in the charaters
All of the JD Robb series. Next to Jim Daley, she's the best.
It did make me tear up in a couple of places
The "in Death" series (my favorite) keeps me coming back for more because of the meaty stories, the history of the characterizations, the funny moments sometimes followed by tears. Overall the books keep me coming back again and again. I have them all on MP3 and have listened in chronological order many times.
I have recommended this series to as many people who listen to books and hope that J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) keeps them coming.
The killer wasn't obvious but didn't come out of nowhere either, that's the best.
Jekel & Hyde angle
It wouldn't be an Eve Dallas story without Susan, she IS the characters' voice. I lover her intensity, she really pulls me into the story.
These books always make me laugh, I love the banter and snarky comments.
This was shorter than most of the books in the series, but I like one that I can finish in one day off and on. Didn't take away from the story at all.
SOmeone who has never enjoyed a Dallas book.
Absolutely - this was an aberation.
Susan Erikson is the voice of the In Death series.
all of it.
Weird, entertaing story
I think I like JD Robb's stories better when they are closer to real-life, thrilling events.
Yes, I have. I find her performance outstanding, as always.
No. Not really.
I'm quite ready for JD Robb's next
Loved the newest book in the series and will definitely listen to it again! This book is true to the Eve Dallas style but a little quirky! Interesting characters but I would have liked to see more development of the villian!
No, I wouldn't listen again. The reader was HORRIBLE and her voice distracted me from the story line.
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.
Thank goodness, she's back and back with her team. The story was exciting from the very first. I just wish it was much longer.
