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.

    "Concealed in Death"

    Narrator was good. Great story. Slow moving at times. I've read all the In Death stories written since they were first introduced.

    "My favorite series"

    Ever. Of all time. Without question. In Death keeps getting better and better, I read that the series will end when she gets pregnant. I hope that's not true.

    Story
    "Corny"

    Story had an opportunity to be interesting and twisted, but instead became lame, too predictable and a difficult listen to its completion (at least for me). I'm guessing the reader felt she had the Irish brogue down pretty good but would sneak out in too many places. Ok for a one time listen, not riveting.

    "J D ROBB JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER"

    This is one of her best yet. The story brings to life the picture of these young girls, their lives and how they died.

    As always with JD Robb and Roarke-----the sex!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Story
    "Totally GREAT"
    What did you love best about Concealed in Death?

    Strong woman character


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series of books and this one was just as good as the others. I love that the characters grow and change. Eve is a strong woman, but has vulnerabilities, but keeps plugging on. I like that this series takes place in the future, but is not really sci-fi as the story line is valid today. Can't wait for the next one!

    Story
    "Not worth your time"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Defineately Not. I enjoy the In Death Series generaly, and own all the books in the series in paper format, but this is not my favorite book. I expect there to be some chapters in which Feeney and McNab participte and am very disappointed they were not in this book. Whoever the person is narrating this book sounds like she is trying to impersonate Scotty and Sulu from Star Trek, while performing Roark and like a 100 year old perfoming Peabody. I could not get past the first chapter!


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

    I would have included more of the central core of characters that have been in every book so far.


    What didn’t you like about Susan Ericksen’s performance?

    She sounded terrible. Roark is IRISH not Scottish and certainly should not sound likeScotty from Star Trek,and Peabody is young, not 100 years old.


    Could you see Concealed in Death being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    NO

    Story
    "What a Dissappointment."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I am always pleased with the J.D. Robb "In Death" series and have never had a dissappointment, until this book. Slow moving plot, no action like the ones before and I was almost about to turn it off but decided to stick with it until the end.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    My next listen will not be an "In Death" series. I will look for something else.


    What three words best describe Susan Ericksen’s performance?

    Susan has always been superb! But in the beginning of the book, she sounded different, like she had a cold or something.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narration got better but the story was just a bore.


    Any additional comments?

    smh..

    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
