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.

    Story
    "I swear, I just can NOT get enough"
    If you could sum up Concealed in Death in three words, what would they be?

    Formula that works


    What did you like best about this story?

    These are always about the team. I have been reading this series for so long now, when a new one come along it feels like a chance to catchup with old friends. Eve, Roarke, Peabody....seriously, I just read these now just to see how everyone is doing.


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

    She IS J.D Robb/ Eve. No one else could ever do this series as well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really. This is one of her more forgettable ones. The "mystery" was not mysterious and actually, I found that plot line rather depressing. It was nice to see everyone again, but nothing new going on here.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep them coming.

    Story
    "done it before"
    What would have made Concealed in Death better?

    The story line was similar to an earlier novel. it was easy to predict how things would happen and how the mystery would be solved. not one of her better stories. a new story would have made it better


    Has Concealed in Death turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I love the genre and many of the books in this series, just not this one


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

    she is fantastic and would not like this series with a different reader. she covers all the personalities.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Concealed in Death?

    the whole book

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

    The narrator as always did an excellent job.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Probably start the series over while waiting for the next book to come out on audio


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

    With her consistency in vocals for each character from book to book, I can visualize what each character looks like in my mind. When I read one of the books, I hear those voices!


    Do you think Concealed in Death needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, this book just didn't do it for me, of all the books and novellas so far, this one was my least enjoyed. Just didn't like the main victim as portrayed, hard to like smart mouthed teenagers with know it all attitudes.


    Any additional comments?

    It would be amazing if JD Robb did a book where Eve and Roark were balancing her homicide career with pregnancy.

    Story
    "Not up to par"

    Not even close. I'm forcing myself to finish this book and it is a chore. This is one of the most boring books of the series. I'm a big fan of the series and very forgiving on the few books that weren't very good. The story is not engaging there is no action. It's mostly just interview after interview which oft times become monologues. Uninteresting characters. Susan Erickson can't pull a rabbit out of a hat on this one though she tries.

    As a psychiatrist addiction is important to me. I am addicted to audible books, kindle books, my husband, and my thirteen cats.

    "The series of my dreams"
    Would you listen to Concealed in Death again? Why?

    this series about the year 2060, a goodlooking irishman, an a homicide cop named Dallas. IT is funny, chilling and sexxxxxxxxxxxxy. Over time the characters feel like comfortable old friends. Start from the first book and I promise you will not be sorry. This book is for men and women, sci fi fans and people who just love a really good mystery. your going love sharing this story with your spouse or friend.

    "Disappointing Story"

    This story was boring, plain and simple. There was too much mush and not enough grit. The villain was pathetic, and I mean that literally, and the victims were ghosts stories that nobody cared about. I missed the mystery, and excitement of not knowing who was going to be killed next. The dead were already dead, and the murderer was already locked up. I don't know why the author thought this story would be interesting. I like mystery murder books because they tell a story of mystery and murder. This one did not meet my expectations at all. If this had been the first time I listened to a Dallas novel, I would not buy another. Hopefully the next book in the series will redeem the author.

    "Found this storyline very repetative"
    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Susan Ericksen is brilliant


    Any additional comments?

    I love the IN Death series but was a bit disappointed with the storyline in this book.
    The identifying of the bodies and the following interviews by Dallas started to become very repetitive and I nearly stopped listening (audio book). Anxiously awaiting the next book in the series, hope it's soon Nora.

    "A different twist"
    If you could sum up Concealed in Death in three words, what would they be?

    What a great twist to the great In Death series. Always enjoy when Roarke is more than the hunk and the billionaire. Love seeing more about his real work twisted into the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Love Mavis being involved. Always love having her in the story more than just the crazy friend.


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

    I've listened to all the In Death... More than once! Susan Ericksen gets better with each book... The emotion is conveyed in the dramatic reading
