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?

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.
Just Boring! I like Eve, but not this story. Reader voice was sharp, hard to listen to, could hardly wait until it was over or at least got better.
I love reading J.D. Robb....I have all of the paperback novels however I have never been so disappointed with an audio edition as I was with this novel.I have always had a clear vision of what the characters would sound like and the narrator had all the characters soooo wrong...Roark is suppose to have a hint of Irish in his voice and Ms. Erickson had him sounding like he just got off the docks.Det Peabody is suppose to be a person that is sympathetic and comes from a Free Age family and sounded more like a Rottweiler
Since I had already read all the J.D. Robb novels I had a sense off what the characters would sound like and most characters were not bad but the ones that were bad were really bad.I would think twice about purchasing an audible novel read by this narrator.
Say something about yourself! I HAVE BEEN SO BUSY THAT I FORGOT TO HAVE A MID LIFE CRISES. I AM 70 NOW. FINALLY, I HAVE TIME FOR BOOKS
I HAVE OVER 12 OF THIS SERIES BUT THEY ALL SEEM TO HAVE THE
SAME STYLE AND NOW I HAVE HEARD ENOUGH. I THOUGHT THE SEX
WAS TOO DESCRIPTIVE ALMOST PORNOGRAPHIC. I WANT A MYSTERY NOVEL MORE THAN THAT. THE BOOK WOULD HAVE BEEN
BETTER IF SHE SAID THEY THOROUGHLY ENJOYED EACH OTHER AND EACH OTHERS BODIES.HE COULD NEVER GET ENOUGH OF HER. NOT AS DESCRIPTIVE AS SHE DOES IT. IN FACT I DIDN'T GET THE NEXT BOOK BECAUSE OF IT. I HAVE HEARD ONLY 6 OF THE BOOKS WE HAVE. THAT'S ENOUGH FOR ME.
I CALL IT FORMULA WRITING. I'M SEXUALLY SATISFIED SO TAME THE SEX. MY ANSWER IS----NO
DROP THE FORMULA STYLE
Unable to complete this survey - we attempted to listen to this book from my Kindle and were unable to raise the volume high enough to hear it while driving in our car. We were most disappointed.
Wish the Kindle could be turned up so we could hear the book we bought for our trip.
