But Lieutenant Eve Dallas, who's on the case, believes Reva is innocent. Eve's instincts tell her that the murder scene looks too perfectly staged, the apparent answers too obvious. And when she digs for more, she discovers that at nearly the exact time a kitchen knife was jammed into the victim's ribs, the passcode to his art studio was changed - and all of the data on his computer deliberately corrupted.
To Roarke, it's the computer attack that poses the real threat. Signs show that this is the nightmare his company has secretly been preparing for. He and Reva have been under a code-red government contract to develop a program that would shield against a new breed of hackers, the Doomsday Group. These techno-terrorists with brilliant minds and plenty of financial backing hack into systems, steal data, and corrupt computer units on a large scale - and kill anyone who gets too close.
Eve and Roarke must infiltrate an extraordinarily secretive government agency to expose the corruption at its core, before the virus spreads from one office to a corporation to the entire country.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

This book is great, I have listened to it twice already. Reva Ewing went to see her best friend to fight, she has just found out about her relationship with her husband. Braking in to the house she storms in to the bedroom to find her best friend and husband in bed both dead. Now that she is back on her feet, she is the prime suspect. Dallas must find what happened, with some big problems. Reva works for Roarke and is Caro's daughter.
Dallas quickly comes to the conclusion that Reva is being set up. Dallas must find out why someone wants to set Reva up and if it has to do anything with the work that she does for Roarke. She has been working on developing a program that would shield against a new breed of hackers, the Doomsday Group. The more that Dallas looks in to these murders the weirder it gets.
This book has many different turns in the story line. J.D. Robb did a great job with this story, with secret groups working for the government and working against. Susan Ericksen does a wonderful job with the narration of this book making the characters come to life.
No I know the ending
Quite a few but the scenes between Eve and Roarke and Eve and Mira are touching and emotional.
Life to the characters.
Yes but not possible
Tell us about yourself!Omnivorous catholic reader who especially enjoys unusual mysteries and thrillers
____"Divided In Death" continues J.D.Robb's fascinating series with even one more exciting well-crafted tale.In #18 the usual Robb characterization continues to be an integral element making the reader relate,on a personal level,with Eve,Roarke,Peabody and the others who are part of the "In Death" series ensemble that the readers have learned to follow with extreme interest.The plot,this time,involves the daughter of Roarke's personal assistant,thus affording another insight into Roarke and his relationships.However.the narration by Susan Eriksen,is to me,the single most important facet of all Robb's books,including"Divided In Death".Despite excellent characterization and intriguing plot lines,"Divided In Death" would not be the superior read/listen that is without Ms Eriksen's superlative narration.
I did not read the print version. i would imagine that the audio version of this book is the better choice as the narrator is very good.
I liked Mira, the police psychiatrist who is always kind and wise. I like McNabb because of the way he is described and the voice his character is given. Actually, all the supporting characters of this series are clearly written and come alive as their words are read.
She is a very skilled narrator. She performs all the voices well.
The tension in the marriages in this one (Roarke & Eve, Reva & Blair), made me anxious as I read but I understand this was important for the story.
One of the best books of this series.
This is one of my favorites in the series. You don't know "who done it" right up to the very end. Every time you think you have it figured out, the author steers you in another direction. Perfect timing throughout the story.
Love this series. The characters are so well drawn. This one kept me guessingg and I personally liked the anti government take! One minor note to the author: You over use "nearly" and "merely" as adverbs! I bet you can come up with better!
Sorry, language arts teacher speaking!
It has an excellent story line and the expansion of the characters had me shedding a lot tears in this one! Susan Ericksen did a great job narrating, which always makes this series come alive.
I feel so in tune with the characters and am trying to work out who I would have playing these characters if they were ever made into a series.
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.
One of my favorites in the series
I was firmly against listening to books on CD until my husband had me listen to a book JD Robb in death series. I tolerated it for a while but then I found myself enjoying the book. I was so interested in that series I had to listen to the whole series starting at the first book. I found a desire to know how and when the
characters were introduced in the series. We are now started book 19. The narrator is awesome and her ability to give each character their own unique sound. She is the reason I was drawn to books and why I continue to buy the series.
I have listened. To samples of other audible books but they just don't live up to quality of narration I have enjoyed with Susan Ericksen.
