    "One of the Better Ones"

    This was the first book in the "Death" series that I read and it was so good, I started reading the series from the beginning. JD Robb has developed a world of complex characters that the reader begins to think of as close personal friends. The plot line is good, taking enough twists to keep you guessing. Dallas is a very believable character and one in which many women who are strong, capable people sick and tired of stupidity can easily relate to. The love scenes get a little tedious for me, but nevertheless are signature pieces of JD Robb. They don't ruin the plot in the least. Susan Erickson is at her best as the reader and the voices are crisp and identifiable. This is well worth buying.

    "Really a good one"

    I truly enjoyed this book because is shows Dallas in a more vulnerable way which made the story a good one. I was surprised. This book and the other books in the series are very entertaining. they don't all have to make absolute sense all the time. Just keep me interested and entertained. that's what I read for - to get away, and this book, and the other books in the series keep you enjoying the characters and leave you wanting more. For me that's what it's all about

    "About as expected"

    Having read several of the books in this series, I was not disappointed. However, I still feel the author spends a little too much time on her romantic happenings with her hubby. Otherwise, a fun read.

    "I could listen to Roarke forever"

    I love Nora Roberts, but resisted reading her as J. D. Robb. I decided to try this summer and got the Audible version of the first in her "In Death" series. I absolutely love the books. I think the character of Eve is real enough. Although I realize that the character of Roarke is only a dream, I pretend that he really could exist. The narration is excellent, and the narrator is one of my favorites. I'm reading them in order.

    "I love this series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I truly enjoy this series, and this is my favorite book so far. After reading some of the other reviews I decided to voice my own opinion. My mother got me started on this series, and since I caved and listened to the first one I have been hooked.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the characters in these novels, they are well written and I feel like I know them all myself. I cheer for them in their triumphs and weep for their losses. I want my own personal Roarke as well. I would really like to know his full name though. No one calls him anything but Roarke.....ever.


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

    Susan Ericksen is the most amazing narrator I have heard since I started listening about a year ago. She is phenomenal in her abilities to give a character a personality and a specific voice that belongs to them. She never falters either, when switching from one person's dialogue to the next. Amazing!


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

    I have been working through these novels in short order. I want to say I have difficulty putting them down, but I guess I guess the reality is I have difficulty turning them off.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing I would change in these books is the amount or at least the in depth descriptions of the intimate relations between Roarke and Eve. I love that Roarke is there for her and has changed her life, but I agree with others when they say that J.D. Robb gets a little too graphic for comfort. I have to make sure I listen in my headphones so my daughter doesn't hear it.

    "good listen, as usual."

    always a good way to spend some down time. the only complaint for me is the length of time i have to spend by passing the sex scenes. what ever happened to letting the imagination take the lead...?

    "OK Story, but Too Much Sex"

    It's a pretty interesting story but really all the graphic sex isn't needed. The story would be just as good without the smut.

    "Another great story!"


    Once again, J.D. Robb has come up with a gripping story that kept me glued to my earbuds from beginning to end. In this 8th adventure of Dallas and company, Eve and Peabody are investigating a string of bizarre murders of elderly street people, each case involving the removal of an organ (heart, liver, etc.) by someone obviously very skilled as a surgeon. As they investigate, they discover that similar crimes have been commited in Chicago, Paris and London. The initial question is why? Why would someone want to gather these old, damaged and diseased organs -- they would be worth nothing on the organ market and they certainly couldn't be used for transplant purposes.

    Besides the perplexing murder investigation, Eve must deal with a street cop, a female officer who does a lousy job, has a bad attitude, and hates Eve so much she wants to destroy her. When that officer is killed, Eve is one of the suspects. Even though none of the authorities believe that she is in any way guilty, she must be suspended during the investigation. And this is the real heart (npi) of this book. When her Commander takes her badge, Dallas falls apart and the reader gets a real look inside her feelings and the person she has made herself into through grit, determination and hard work. Losing the symbol of that person is almost more than she can bear. Seeing the progress of her recovery, while continuing to carry on her investigation outside of police authority, gives the reader a real emotional tie to this character.

    I was glad to see in this story that Eve handled the final confrontation on her own, with no help from Roark. And I enjoyed meeting again all or most of the regular characters from the previous "In Death" books, and seeing the deepening of relationships. Two additional continuing characters make their debut in this book -- Officer Trueheart and Detective Baxter.

    As usual, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
