Publisher's Summary

With the precision of a surgeon, a serial killer preys on the most vulnerable souls of the world's city streets. The first victim: a sidewalk sleeper, found dead in New York City. No bruises, no signs of struggle. Just a laser-perfect, fist-sized hole where his heart had once been. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is assigned to investigate. But in the heat of a cat-and-mouse game with the killer, Dallas' job is suddenly on the line. Now her hands are tied...between a struggle for justice - and a fight for her career.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "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.

    Story
    "More story, less anger and sex please!"

    Reasonably entertaining story, full potential unrealized and overshadowed by protagonist too angry to allow the story speak. Sex as therapy for anger a dangerous role model.

    Story
    "One of the better installments!"

    This book stands out from the normal Dallas fare. The plot is gripping and rather gruesome, but not overdone. I must say though, it is reminds me quite a bit of one of Tess Gerritsen's books - or Tess Gerritsen reminds me of this one... whichever, they are similar. Even so, I didn't figure out who-dun-it until toward the end, and then was still a bit surprised.

    As usual, Roarke is fantasy material and the narrator is excellent!

    Yes, I'd recommend this book... even more than the previous ones.

    Moved to Stratford Ontario in 2014. Listen to my stories at night in bed mostly. Like narrators that aren't too loud or shrill!

    Story
    "Good story, but I found that it dragged on a bit."

    I have only read 2 other books from this series, and I enjoyed them all. However, I found that this one dragged on too long. I was also not as enamoured with the voice of Roarke this time.
    The story does leave one thinking about the future of medicine with regards to organ donations and transplants, and the possibilities of people living on forever!

    "Susan Ericksen great narrator"
    If you could sum up Conspiracy in Death in three words, what would they be?

    Gritty, sexy, romantic


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Ther is always a twist to the endings and great action endings


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    Always love the character of Peabody


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The sarcasm that J D Robb uses is always dry and funny


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone who does not like Susan Ericksen as a narrator is not listening well. She makes these books, her characters are rich and each one is individual, makes you appreciate all the nuances of the characters. I have enjoyed all her readings.
