Publisher's Summary

In a time when technology can reveal the darkest of secrets, there's only one place to hide a crime of passion - in the heart.

The first victim was found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas had no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provided Eve with a long list of suspects - including her own lover, Roarke.

As a woman, Eve was compelled to trust the man who shared her bed. But as a cop, it was her job to follow every lead...to investigate every scandalous rumor...to explore every secret passion, no matter how dark. Or how dangerous.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "Ericksen Steals the Show"

    I've only been hooked by one narrator before and that was Scott Brick. I considered Brick to be in a class by himself, that is, until I started listening to Susan Ericksen's narration of the Death series. Ericksen is every bit as good as Brick and possibly better. I've now purchased 17 Death books and have consecutively listened to 9 (putting nearly 30 others in my library on hold). Though all the stories take place in NYC, 40 years from now, Robb is not writing sci-fi. Though 2050's Earth-bound technologies and societal changes are believable, his very brief references to farming and resorts on planets, moons and/or space stations are not believable. Luckily, they're easy to overlook since all the action takes place in NYC. Though Robb's "who-Done-It" plots are well constructed and well written, they're totally dependent on the interplay between his 2 main characters, Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her Irish-accented, billionaire husband, "Rourke." Not only does Ericksen give them great voices and take them through an incredible range of emotions, she does the same with the entire range of both the ongoing support and story-specific characters. She does male voice so well, it's impossible to believe that there isn't an ensemble cast of readers. Perhaps the only downside in Robb's writing is the frequency and intensity of Eve and Rourk's lovemaking. While each encounter is beautifully written and read, the frequency of them stretches credibility of it. People who are so tired they can barely walk up stairs and so emotionally drained from seeing disemboweled bodies, do not make love and have multiple orgasms, 2 and 3 times a day.

    "Great Listen!!!!!!!!"

    Eve is at it again. Once again Roake is pulled into the investigation, because of his relationship with the woman that have been killed. Even though it is a little like the 1st book in that aspect, it is still different. With Susan as narrator this book just couldn't go wrong or be bad. She does an excellent job with the many different voices, especially Roakes. I would recommend this audio to anybody!! Would recommend also to read Naked in Death 1st. Just helps with understanding Eve's & Roake's relationship & their backgrounds.

    "JD Robb murder, outstanding reader"

    Futuristic setting for crime stories written by Nora Roberts as JD Robb. Engaging characters, fast paced and good in written or audio format (have both). Though not a graphic "adult" style, some scenes are unsuitable for children so don't listen in front of them.
    The crime story in this book stands on its own, even if you have not read book 1 Naked in Death to get the full understanding of who the two main players. But each later book builds on these earlier books so it is best to read in order. Some things are recapped or referred to in this novel to help the story but does not bog you down in a long recap of events.

    The reader is excellent. Several distinct character voices throughout the book, easy on the ears and well suited to this series. Will check out other items by this reader.

    "Eve Dallas In Death Series a must for everyone"

    I have read each of the books in the series now I am going back and listening to each book. It only gets better each character is perfect. The narrator has the voice and inflections and quirks of each character. This is an amazing series and it is read phenomenally. Great writing, great characters and great reading! It does not get any better then this!

    "Early Days In Death"

    This is a very good audio production. As such it reveals the talent of both author and narrator near the beginning of their collaborative efforts. An extra bonus is how the story sets in place rich character interaction. These bonds will be cause for years of enjoyment on the part of the listener. I agree with a friend that one part was very graphic. But it is the sort that any romantic heart would long for and enjoy. Death however is less poetic. The authors descriptions are swift, the turns are sharp and the story will have your questioning your analysis. In the hands of this skilled narrator you will love Detective Dallas, see the face of Feny, and want the head of the killer on a poke. Either that or you’ll discover you are as zoned as a chemihead, If you have a heart this early JD Robb book will touch it. Else consider this your annual psych eval.

    "True Nora Roberts style"

    This is going to be a really good series - the story line is strong and the characters are believable "if you can assume living in 2050 somewhere" however the main focus to me is the relationship that Eve has with Rourke - you want to need hear more to see how this develops and how they are going to work things out.

    Narration fantastic!

    "Dallas and Roark Proceed"

    In this second In Death story, Eve's relationship with Roark deepens, both personally and professionally. Two prominent women have had their throats cut, and they both have ties to Roark, which creates friction in the personal relationship. Needless to say that problem gets solved, and Eve successfully corners the killer, a man who harbors hatred for women with power and fame. There's a great suspense ending involving a knife fight in the dark. Since this is a series, you know that Dallas and Roark will always come out top, but J.D. Robb makes each adventure different enough, and exciting enough, to keep the reader interested.

    As other have suggested, it is a good idea to read at least the first several books in the order of publication, in order to follow the progression of Eve and Roark's relationship, and to follow the appearance of new continuing characters in the series and their gradual progression through the ranks. For instance, this book marks the first appearance of Delia Peabody, Eve's future partner in the Homicide Detective Division, as a uniformed officer at one of the crime scenes.

    I like Robb's invented future and the history behind it. And I especially like Susan Ericksen's narration. Excellent!

    "Another good read about my favorite characters."
    What did you love best about Glory in Death?

    There is no doubt that it is because of the narrator Susan Ericksen that that one becomes so involved in these books.
    She makes the characters come to life and makes you feel you are at the scene looking and listening to each as they talk.
    She is so good at having a voice for each person as apposed to someone just reading a book to you.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eve as she is so down to earth.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    Every bit of it she is so good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You have got to see it and experience real drama.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read 5 of this series and will be buying all of them

    "Great read!"

    Just started reading Nora Roberts under this pen name, a colleague recommended her. What a great mixture of mystery, suspense and sci-fi. I enjoyed the character Eve. I've already purchased the next five books in the series.

    "Excellent story."

    Slightly let down for me by the narrator's Irish accent for Roarke - just didn't sound right.
