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.

    "If you haven't read Big Jack, get it first"

    Although the In Death numbering scheme makes it look as if this book is the sequel to Imitation in Death, it's not. Between the two, Roberts wrote a half Roberts/half Robb novel called Remember When, a two part book set half in present day and half in 2050s NYC. Only the second half is about Dallas, and it's available standalone under the title Big Jack. It's a very nice story, so go back and get it if you missed it.

    Now, about this book...

    I'm listening to the series in order, and Divided is my favorite since Witness. There is real tension between Eve and Roarke as he is torn between his desire to protect her "bad Roarke" style and his respect for the law through her.

    There is, as a negative review noted, a higher percentage of dialog to action than in some other books, but if you're into series fiction it's really all about the characters. This book has some great Roarke and Dallas character development, funny and touching scenes with the still pregnant Mavis, and some interesting glimpses into the workings of the mysterious Roarke Enterprises.

    Program your auto chef for coffee and danish, put on your favorite Freestone album, and enjoy.

    "Another Great Story by JD Robb"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the series is well written. The books are murder mysteries, but the author has away of combining the suspense of a mystery while also building intriguing sub-stories of the main characters to draw you into the book and the character's lives. I find myself rooting for Eve's marriage, Peabody's professional success and Rorke's calming and steadfast love to mention a few.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Susan Ericksen?

    I have listened to JD Robb's "In Death Series" books 1 through 18 in chronological order and I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to Susan Ericksen narrate each with the exception of this book. Peabody's voice in this book was not the same as the previous books.

    Susan has a way of portraying each character through her voice that you begin to connect/build a relationship to each character through her voice interpretation. I missed the voice of Peabody in this book. Some of the other voices were also lacking a bit, but not as bad as Peabody. I have recently purchased book 19 in the series and I truely hope Peabody comes back

    "great series...great book in series"

    I love this series!! Eve and Rourke's fighting in this one almost breaks your heart, but I had a tear in my eye when they worked things out and finished this case together!! And bringing Finney in to help and to act as Eve's father figure was great and comical. I'm glad that the voices of Peabody and McNabb are back. I missed them in a few of the earlier books. Just bought the next 3 in the series. Hopefully they will last me for a week!!

    "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

    "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.

    Story
    "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.
