Publisher's Summary

Reva Ewing, a former member of the Secret Service and a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises, is a prime suspect in a double homicide. She had every reason to want to kill her husband, the renowned artist Blair Bissel. Not only was he having an affair, he was having it with her best friend.

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.

    Story
    "Plenty of plot twists"

    Some of the books in this series have the characters in possession of most of the details about their murderer, with the focus being finding him or her (Reunion, Betrayal). In most cases, it's all about figuring out the "who" - and this is a good example. Robb does a great job with the balancing act between retrieving data from "fried" data units and tracking down the culprit. Though the reader is given a few hints along the way, I still remember being a bit stunned and startled by that particular twist the first time I read the book.

    There is more background given about Eve's past when the "HSO" is brought into the picture (Homeland Security Organization), and Eve's and Roarke's reactions to what they find out creates some tension between them. Robb handles that aspect fairly well - for the most part I didn't find it overdone, and the resolution was consistent with the personalities of our main duo. I prefer the books without marital tensions, but I understand the need to shake things up once in a while.

    Overall a very good addition to the series. Ericksen does a fabulous job as usual, and I will certainly listen to it again.

    "Marriage Troubles"

    I have to say, the most interesting books are the ones were Roarke and Eve have difficulties.

    As it is, I don't agree with Eve's opinion here, more on Roarke's side, but I can see why she felt the way she did, and it is in character. That Roarke was willing to give in really show how much he loves her and values her opinion.

    The perfect man. :D

    Story
    "Divided House"

    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.

    "Exciting Eighteen!"

    ____"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.

    "That Which is Unspoken in a Marriage..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Divided in Death to be better than the print version?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


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

    She is a very skilled narrator. She performs all the voices well.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best books of this series.

    "One of my favorites!"

    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.
