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.

No, because it seemed like a formula.
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!
Not if it was my first listen.
Great series of the past.
Tell us about yourself!
I haven't read the printed version.
All of the main character's of this series are my favorites; however if I had to pick one it would be Eve Dallas.
Ms. Ericksen is one of the best narrators I have ever heard. She brings life a personality to all of the characters
The perfect tag line would be "It's not what you think!"
All of the other books in this series is awesome and this installment is no different.
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.
Story was not suspenseful and at times actually boring.
Female character voices were irritating. The deliver was constantly and unnecessarily whiny, loud, or agitated for the two females.
Not sure why everyone else thought this books was so great. This is the reason she is not getting the message. I was bored. Normally I struggle to stop listening to her books, with this one, I had to remind myself not to waste my credit and continue listening. I loved learning about Mavis' past. I disliked Eve's investigative technique in this book, she just has one way, abrasive and it was not needed in this situation. There was no electricity between her and Roarke. I missed the other characters and the funny banter with her and Peabody. This book was just not on point. Since it's obvious that JD will continue to churn these out and not move Eve's story along, then I will have to move along. Looking for other series.
No, not the best of the in death series. This did not have the thrills of the other books. It's time for JD to move the story along or just end it.
Susan Ericksen's performance was excellent as usual.
Not this particular book but the series yes.
More action, characters, twists and turns, excitement
Narration was the best part.
I absolutely love Nora Roberts / JD Robb. When you are use to all her many works being wonderful, it is very surprising that this book fell way short of her usual work. I will continue to be one of her biggest fans and look forward to her upcoming work.
no, left alot to be desired.
no, I just didn't like this one book
I love her voice! She brings the characters to life for me. I am glad that she did all of J D Robb's book
Please put the passion back into Eve and Roake.
I wouldn't consider this book to be one that you would want to listen to multiple times. Don't get me wrong it was a good book. There seemed to be some threads that were not followed through on.
Susan Ericksen is the best narrator/performer that I have ever heard. She is incredible with each character. I can't imagine anyone else that could read this series. Susan makes this series better.
This was not one of Robb's best. I was bored and has to listen to it twice, it just didn't grab me. A couple books in this series was borderline boring, this one made the mark.
Yes, of course!
She is good and body else and this book would have tanked.
