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.

    "The series of my dreams"
    Would you listen to Concealed in Death again? Why?

    this series about the year 2060, a goodlooking irishman, an a homicide cop named Dallas. IT is funny, chilling and sexxxxxxxxxxxxy. Over time the characters feel like comfortable old friends. Start from the first book and I promise you will not be sorry. This book is for men and women, sci fi fans and people who just love a really good mystery. your going love sharing this story with your spouse or friend.

    "Disappointing Story"

    This story was boring, plain and simple. There was too much mush and not enough grit. The villain was pathetic, and I mean that literally, and the victims were ghosts stories that nobody cared about. I missed the mystery, and excitement of not knowing who was going to be killed next. The dead were already dead, and the murderer was already locked up. I don't know why the author thought this story would be interesting. I like mystery murder books because they tell a story of mystery and murder. This one did not meet my expectations at all. If this had been the first time I listened to a Dallas novel, I would not buy another. Hopefully the next book in the series will redeem the author.

    "Found this storyline very repetative"
    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Susan Ericksen is brilliant


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "A different twist"
    If you could sum up Concealed in Death in three words, what would they be?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Love Mavis being involved. Always love having her in the story more than just the crazy friend.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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

    "TEDIOUS"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know


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

    Of course.


    How could the performance have been better?

    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.

    Story
    "Should have remained conceled"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A decent story line and a narrator. This book was so bad that I just deleted it rather than suffer any longer


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not J.D. Robb


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Ericksen?

    No one


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Concealed in Death?

    I would have cut out the entire book


    Any additional comments?

    Probably the worst book I ever listened to.

    "Part of the series.."

    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

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "A very good read"

    Everything about this was good but the language. It really was not necessary and would have been great without the "F" bomb.
