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.

We love the entire "in death" series! It's the only books we make sure to purchase as soon as they are on the market!
The voice of the narrator ruined the book for me. It did not fit the characters as I have learned to love them. Please find a new voice for JD Robb's books.
NORA ROBERTS NEVER DISAPPOINTS...I AM SO HAPPY THAT I CAN LISTEN TO MY FAVORITE SERIES.AS LONG AS THERE IS AN "IN DEATH" SERIES, I WILL BUY EVERY PAPERBACK OR HARDCOVER FOR MY COLLECTION AND THEN PURCHASE THEN AUDIBLE BOOK
I enjoy all of J D Robb"s books. concealed In Death is very intriguing. Robb has great way of intertwining all her characters together and add a little humor. I will read all of her books in this series..
I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!
This In Death story starts with interesting beginning that includes the introduction of a new character. Then it became progressively predictable and boring. The entire story could have been told in less then half the time. I kept waiting for excitement that never came. The story was just flat.
The story would have made a better novella or even a short story. The current length seemed to stress it being boring and predictable.
Susan Ericksen does an excellent job reading this series. I really can't think of what she could have done different.
I would have edited the story to novella length. This would have helped keep the story fresh.
In the time line of the story about 30 months has passed. This is In Death 38. It seems like J. D. Robb is either running out of ideas or becoming bored with the 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 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.
