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.

Susan Ericksen is brilliant
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.
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.
Love Mavis being involved. Always love having her in the story more than just the crazy friend.
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
I don't know
I love this series and I love the cast of characters. So when the cast does not appear to enrich the story, the story must stand alone and this one doesn't. We all love Eve, but there has to be more than her dialogue, it becomes tedious and there wasn't enough richness to this book to overcome that.
A decent story line and a narrator. This book was so bad that I just deleted it rather than suffer any longer
Not J.D. Robb
I would have cut out the entire book
Probably the worst book I ever listened to.
Again, great audio performance and she does make what is an otherwise now bland series work. JD robb needs a bit of a "re-alignment" but I'll still be a faithful reader and audiobook listener--especially to this series
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.
Much happy to buy this book as it worth the cost that I have paid and also the narration is good which helped me to enjoy this book.
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/.
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.
"Concealed in Death"
I have nearly all in Death books, hard copy and audio but this was not even close to one of her best. In fact it is the bottom of all the audiobooks I have listened to. I will continue to buy and listen to JD Robb though.
They were all pretty much the same.
I would certainly recommend virtually all of JD Robb books.
"Another great story"
They just makes you want to read next soon as possible.
great plots, and story
