Eve Dallas deals with a homicide - and the holiday season - in the latest from the #1New York Times bestselling author.
Personal trainer Trey Ziegler was in peak physical condition. If you didn't count the kitchen knife in his well-toned chest.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon discovers a lineup of women who'd been loved and left by the narcissistic gym rat. While Dallas sorts through the list of Ziegler's enemies, she's also dealing with her Christmas shopping list - plus the guest list for her and her billionaire husband's upcoming holiday bash.
Feeling less than festive, Dallas tries to put aside her distaste for the victim and solve the mystery of his death. There are just a few investigating days left before Christmas, and as New Year's 2061 approaches, this homicide cop is resolved to stop a cold-blooded killer.

Say something about yourself!
I look forward to all the In Death books. It's like visiting old friends.
The gift from Feeney
All are great. She has a different voice for the various characters and repeats the characters voices in book after book. Sounded like Ms. Ericksen had a cold when performing this book.
A film would destroy the images I have formed of the characters.
I would like a prequel that focuses on Feeney in homicide and Eve as his aide. Focus on Feeney's family and the growth of Eve's career.
This book should not be missed by In Death fans. For a new In Death reader I would suggest starting somewhere else in the series, preferably Naked in Death Book 1. This book is a blend of the search for a murderer of a sleazy personal trainer and the vagaries of Eve and Roarke's Christmas which is more appreciated by those who follow the series.
I devour In Death books. I am always anxious for the next scene, the next chapter. This was no different.
Susan Ericksen is Eve Dallas. With the exception of 2 earlier books, every preformance (and there are over 40 stories and multiple recurring characters) imparts a distinct personality to every character. I could not imagine anyone else reading these books.
Feeney's Christmas present for both Eve and Roarke.
yes because i love eve and hudsand would want every to meet them and their friend. to check out the future.
when eve got shopping this is worst then murder.
eve but i love them all
yes to both
would like to hear more from the little boy that eve help and his grandmother.
J. D. Robb (Nora Roberts) is back in form. The interplay is back between the characters
Also, she corrected the mistake from the last book about the button Roarke carries.
I loved the Christmas season, the party, Eve buying presents, and Eve making a deal with Summerset to participate in creating the party.
I don't know if I could listen to the In Death books with out her. She is the voice of them and is as important as Nora Roberts.
No, I didn't but I kept coming back to it.
In the Top 10. It seems that the interaction between characters was more developed in this book, compared to the last few books. These interactions are what makes this series so special.
An interesting beginning, utilizing one of the more outrageous characters. Enough said : )
Susan does an Excellent job with all of their voices, some quite unique, which makes each distinctive. I am really very happy that the same narrator is used for all books in this series. Many good books have been ruined by poor narrators, or by using different narrators within a series!
Not applicable for me~ I Always prefer the book version.
I've read the entire "In Death" series. This is one of the better efforts. Most definitely worth the credit!
Susan Ericksen is fabulous with her character voices. It really makes these stories so enjoyable.
Gosh, so many!, I love Eve, Roarke, Peabody, Myra, Morris......
Her voices are soooo great. I love the characters because of how she portrays them.
Feeny and the present to Dallas, Roarke and x-mas, Peabody and her pick coat... there were some very touching and funny moments in this book!
After 39 stories and I am not sure how many short stories, I still love this series. I truly love the whole family of characters and cannot wait to read more!!
The character interaction is back to where it should be. The last few "In Death" books had suspense, but the relationship aspect was lacking. By Book #39, we all have come to know and understand these characters. Eve and Roarke are strong, but it is their surrounding friends that make them a family.
It was a comfortable, entertaining story. Not as intense as some books in this series, but for a holiday edition, it is perfect.
Susan Ericksen is the perfect narrator for this series. See truly makes "In Death" a pleasure to listen to.
If you are a JD Robb fan, don't miss this one.
I would happily listen to Festive in Death again. A great story and good performance by the reader!
There were a good selection of characters, both old favourites, a truly despicable murder victim and a good cast of suspects!
Yes, though I did it through a few longish sessions.
Susan Ericksen makes this series just come to life. In most stories you can guess who did it, but the twist and turns just keep you guessing in these books.
I have no favorite character in this series. Every character is so crucial and loved.
The narrator is just as important to this story as the author. She brings the soul into these characters.
Just pure enjoyment and excitement.
Who put the Christmas bell on Galahad...I just didn't see that coming. Summerset and Roarke just relaxing and having a friendly conversation that they share with Eve. Feeney giving the best gift...followed closely by the gift given to Peabody. I hope JD Robb writes and Susan Ericksen narrates this series for years to come.
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 the very best in the "In Death" series. It was interesting from the very start. I love Eve's fear of shopping. I was really hoping Peabody would at the very least get engaged in this one. I'm going to listen to it again. I highly recommend this book.
"She has done it again"
Once again a very enjoyable and engaging book from J D Robb. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be to maintain such a high standard over a series of books now stretching to 39 but in this series she manages it magnificently.
I enjoyed the interaction between the main characters. Trina has become a particular favourite and of course the unforgettable Mavis and Somerset.
I think her voice particularly matches my opinion of what Eve should sound like and I am amazed by her ability to project so many different characters using only her voice. She is a joy to listen to.
These books always make me feel a variety of emotions happy, sad, vastly entertained and enthralled. Eve's interaction with her police colleagues, particularly Feeney, is both sad and funny. Her horrendous early childhood evokes sadness but her determination to overcome it evokes admiration. Her dread of social occasions is amusing and the scene in which she accomplishes her Christmas shopping made me smile.
I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series which is due out next year. I prefer to have these books as audiobooks as I find the combination of the excellent story an extremely talented reader, Susan Ericksen, particularly good and both add to my enjoyment.
