Creation in Death: In Death, Book 25 | [J. D. Robb]

Creation in Death: In Death, Book 25

Eve has seen this crime scene before: the artfully arranged body of a young brunette, arms spread, palms up, body marked by the signs of prolonged and painful torture. Carved into her torso is the time it took her to die - in hours, minutes, and seconds. And on the third finger of her left hand has been placed a silver ring.

Publisher's Summary

Eve has seen this crime scene before: the artfully arranged body of a young brunette, arms spread, palms up, body marked by the signs of prolonged and painful torture. Carved into her torso is the time it took her to die - in hours, minutes, and seconds. And on the third finger of her left hand has been placed a silver ring.

Eve is catapulted back to a case nine years earlier, when a man the media tagged "The Groom" put the city on edge with a killing spree that took the lives of four women in 15 days. Eve and her partner, Feeney, her friend and mentor, couldn't stop him before he disappeared, only to resurface in other parts of the world to kill and kill again. But now The Groom seems to have come back to where he started.

When it turns out that The Groom's most recent victim was employed by Eve's billionaire husband, Roarke, she brings him onto the case - a move that proves fitting when it becomes chillingly clear that the killer has made it personal. The corpse was washed in products from a store Roarke owns and laid out on a sheet his company manufactures.

With the Groom's monstrous return, Eve is determined to finish him once and for all. Familiar with his methods, she knows that he has already grabbed his next victim. But his sights are set on the biggest challenge of his illustrious career - an abduction that will test his skills and that promises to give him satisfaction as he's never known. Time is running out on another woman's life...and for Eve.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "Fantastic as usual."

    Love the characters, love the voices, love all the books. The excitement, the exhaustion and caring really come thru in this one. Love that Eve doesn't stop and will do whatever is necessary to save someone else from being killed, even endangering herself. This was one of my very favorites I think because Roark really got to be totally involved and see how the cops worked from the inside. KEEP WRITING, KEEP RECORDING! They are wonderful. For those who said some of the books, the voices were off. Be quiet. Just keep listening and all gets back on track. I NEVER had trouble distinguishing who was talking. These books were written to be listened too.

    "Creation in Death"

    As all ways J.D. Robb has been a good read, and the narrator does a great job in getting you to be able to see all the characters in full view.

    "Eve becomes a Target"
    Where does Creation in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Somewhere in the middle. I've listened to quite a few audiobooks in the past year, too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eve, Roarke, Capt. Finney. I always enjoy hearing Eve's voice, so sure of her self and always trying to sound tough. Roarke's Irish brogue is done very well. Capt. Finney gets a chance to show some emotion in this one.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She gave a very good preformance with this one. All the voices were right on.


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

    No. i took breaks to think about what I was reading.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "Sickening, not entertaining."
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    Yes. I've been listening to the series & enjoyed it up until now. This one stands out as, well, gruesome.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not for me. The others in the series posed interesting puzzles. This one is something I can't stand to contemplate.

    "Another great one!"

    I always love to see how Eve and Roarke negotiate the lines. While most of the time it is solid black and white....shades of grey will peek through. Well done as always!

    "oops I bought it no one to blame but me"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    Story was so so - dialogue drove me to distraction, forever whining about stress and need for sleep and overreacting in "THE WAR ROOM' No intention of listening to another in the series


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Interesting?? The fact that someone like Eve and Roark could coexist - but maybe they deserve each other


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    The voice for some of the characters - sigh

    "Verbose"

    Tedious, verbose, annoying characters. Couldn't wait for it to finish. In fact I skipped a few chapters towards the end. Wouldn't recommend this audiobook at all.

    "Voices get a little annoying ..."

    Ok story but mostly talk - no action until the very end. The readers primary voice is ok but the men all sound like women and some of the voices are goofy to the point of being annoying.

    "Good Ending"

    Very disturbing, the torture scenes. And the backstory of the victim made me want him dead even more, for being so selfish. I loved the ending, however, and how things worked out.

    "Excellent"

    I know I rave about JD's books but this one was superb. The Groom is back 9 years ago Eve and Feeney had been on a task force but failed to stop him now he's back and killing again. The Groom engraves on the body how long each of his "partners" lasts this made the tension in the book more real as you go along with Eve and team to try and stop him, as you go along with him as he chooses the next victim.

    "Dreadful narration, ridiculous accents/characters"
    What would have made Creation in Death better?

    The narration was so ridiculous with dreadful accents and voices for characters that were so awful they made me laugh out loud! Totally detracted from the story such that I couldn't bear to listen and will request a refund.


    What was most disappointing about J. D. Robb’s story?

    The narrator.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different and better narrator.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Ridicule and disappointment in abundance.


    Any additional comments?

    Will be asking for a refund, can't get past the first 20 mins.
