Publisher's Summary

The incomparable J. D. Robb presents the latest moving and suspenseful novel in the number-one New York Times best-selling Eve Dallas series.

In a decrepit and long-empty New York building, a man begins the demolition process by swinging a sledgehammer into a wall. When the dust clears, he finds two skeletons wrapped in plastic behind it. The man is Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s billionaire husband, Roarke, and he summons her immediately. His latest real estate project is going to be on hold for a while, because by the time Eve and her crew are finished searching the premises, there are 12 murders to be solved.

After a little digging reveals that the place housed a makeshift shelter for troubled and homeless teenagers back in the mid-2040s, Eve tracks down the people who worked there. Between their recollections and the brilliant work of the force’s new forensic anthropologist, Eve begins to put names and faces to the skeletal remains. They are all girls. A tattooed tough teenager who dealt in illegal drugs. The runaway daughter of a pair of well-to-do doctors. They all had their stories. And they all lost their chance for a better life.

Everyone has something to hide. And when Eve discovers a stunning connection between the victims and someone she knows, she is even more driven to reveal the secrets of the place that was called The Sanctuary - and to find the evil concealed in one human heart.

    "If you love the series it is a good read"
    Any additional comments?

    I love this series and Susan Erickson is an awesome narrator as she makes these books a lot of fun by capturing the personalities of the characters. This is a good book, but not the place to start if you have never read an Eve Dallas book. Some of the earlier books are more riveting. Work your way through part of the series and you will enjoy this one too.

    "A very good read"

    Everything about this was good but the language. It really was not necessary and would have been great without the "F" bomb.

    "Enjoyed this book, kinda"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Making Eve less of a hypocrite. She hates bullies, but is the biggest bully in the book. She has become more and more a judgmental person/.

    Story
    "Doesn't ring true."

    From the first chapter of this tale, I felt disengaged. My first impression was "this sounds like a female writer trying to write what she thinks a male writer would say and do". I was unable to get involved with the story and have deserted it.

    Story
    "great story as usual"
    What did you love best about Concealed in Death?

    the continued development of the characters


    What did you like best about this story?

    Mavis' backstory


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Sun-schit= Somerset


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    no idea


    Any additional comments?

    There was at least one mistake in the history, as the button in Rourkes pocket came from the suit Jacket of Eve's, not the borrowed overcoat of Mavis. Actually went back and read the 1st book to check on that. All in all, phenominal as usual.

    Story
    "Love Mavis!"
    Would you listen to Concealed in Death again? Why?

    I liked the return of Mavis and more of her history. The plot had me see-sawing between 2 suspects.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Narrator and writing. I mean it is almost like meeting up with old friends- hearing their voices. Please keep Suan Erickson! Without her, not sure if I would get the audio. I would go to the library.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Bringing the characters to life


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

    Interviewing the suspect. A tear fell as Susan's voice transformed the suspect. I could almost see the character, feel their emotions.


    Any additional comments?

    Please tap into Mavis more. I love how Bella makes Eve nervous. There have been several peeks into Sommerset's past. Would like learn more. Any chance new bone Doc is a keeper. I like her.

    In short, please keep writing and keep Susan!!

    Story
    "The button was an error I didn't expect"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    Susan Ericksen has become one of my favorite readers.
    The verdict for J.D. Robb is out for this book was off and the button did not come from the coat she borrowed from Mavis but the jacket of the suit she wore.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I thought the story was off. There were no great lines that I recall.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    I always like the regulars, Eve, Roarke and the gang.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    If the next one is as poor as this one, I will probably leave the series. I would like to know if Roarke ever gets to nail Dallas when she is in uniform.

    "Good story."
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    Enjoyed the story and the characters quite a lot, but found the unnecessary foul language a distraction. Would think hard before buying another book by this author. A good story can outweigh the language, but it would have to be awfully good!

    Story
    "Predictable"
    What did you like best about Concealed in Death? What did you like least?

    Outcome was easy to predict. Dialogue was off putting and banal.Liked the tough woman cop but she needs more depth.


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

    Michael Connelly is a better writer and his characters both male and female are more real and have more depth.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

    Would not choose book for her reading but wouldn't reject if the story was good.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't know if I would listen to a J. D. Robb again. She is better as Nora Roberts.
