Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

While I disagree with the previous reviewer, one must remember that this is a Novella of the "In Death Series" and is not a true representation of the whole In Death Series. I suggest that a listener start at the beginning with "Naked in Death" and work one's way through the 27.5 book available, before passing judgement on a novella.
No, I didn't especially care for the story. I also felt that, like most of the novellas, the story was rushed
Made it a full length book on it's own. Didn't really belong in this series to do the story justice. To be in this series they should have played this story differently.
i like the way she performs the different characters.
Not really. No surprises I couldn't see coming. No laughs, no great sadness.
This Novella is not J. D. Robb's best but it is worth the time to listen too. Dallas is trying to find the killer of club-hopping Tiara Kent who is found in her bed with no blood. With her team having problems thinking that Dracula has come to New York. Dallas must find a killer that will take blood from his victims and convince them that they will live again as a vampire.
This is a short story, that means that you get half of want you get in a normal J.D. Robb novel. The story line goes quickly, but it is a good listen. If you like the 'In Death' series you will love this Novella.

The "half" books tend to delve into the more "impractical" story lines, and this one is no different. In this one, Dallas is forced to investigate a "vampire." She, of course, doesn't believe for one second that the guy really IS a vampire, but those around her, Roarke, Peabody, Trueheart, etc., all get caught up in the hype of it all.
This whole series has gone from strength to strength. I love the characters, the voices from the reader snd the whole story line. Its everything in one. Keep them coming
I always enjoy the performance of Susan Erickson. She is able to make you believe there sre fifferent characters. The energy she puts in to her readings us so believable. the story lne was nog one if Robb's better topics.
i thoroughly enjoy Robbs books full of excitement, drama, compassion, lust and much more! It's a romantic murder mystery thriller! highly reccomend reading the series from the start.
