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
    "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.

    Story
    "Really 2060s...?"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, because it seemed like a formula.


    If you’ve listened to books by J. D. Robb before, how does this one compare?

    I have listened to all of them. This episode seemed like a very tired volume - who didn't know in the first hour who had done it (and then hoped they were wrong)?

    In 2060, do we still rely on 2000 age email and current texting? Where is the futuristic, edgy, lusty world of Eve Dallas as in early days? Wasn't the futuristic edge the whole niche of this series?

    The author has become lazy and/or tired and I'll bet she would secretly agree, else editors and publishers have interfered. Of course I have totally enjoyed many of the 38 or so books of the series!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She's great!


    Was Concealed in Death worth the listening time?

    Not if it was my first listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Great series of the past.

    ""A Twisted Tale""
    Would you consider the audio edition of Concealed in Death to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the printed version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of the main character's of this series are my favorites; however if I had to pick one it would be Eve Dallas.


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

    Ms. Ericksen is one of the best narrators I have ever heard. She brings life a personality to all of the characters


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

    The perfect tag line would be "It's not what you think!"


    Any additional comments?

    All of the other books in this series is awesome and this installment is no different.

    "A relief in some ways, disappointing in others"

    The lack of torture was a relief. Nobody had their eyes plucked out or their dog beaten. I almost stopped reading J D Robb after her last book. I love the regular characters in this series but they were all but missing. She also introduced a new coroner and the only reason I could see for this character was maybe for a future book. I love listening to Susan Ericksen and found her as enjoyable as ever.

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

    Story was not suspenseful and at times actually boring.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. D. Robb again?

    Not sure.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Female character voices were irritating. The deliver was constantly and unnecessarily whiny, loud, or agitated for the two females.


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

    No

    "Boring"

    I am a fan of the death series by JD Robb. I was so bored I thought it would pick up but it never did. Eve is becoming an irritating whiner.

    Story
    "Concealed in Death"
    Where does Concealed in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. D. Robb again?

    Absolutely


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    They were all pretty much the same.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I would certainly recommend virtually all of JD Robb books.
