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.

    "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.

    "A solid installment!"

    Another great In Death book. Susanne Erickssen does a really good job narrating. The audiobook is actually about thirty minutes shorter, the audible title includes a preview of book three.

    "Yet Another Great Listen!"
    Any additional comments?

    I am completely all in with these books! The mysteries are in depth and complex, even if I do figure them out way early. It usually takes something exceptional to pull one over on me, so I can't dock a book because it fails to do so, especially if it's quite well written.

    I got the first four books on sale and have inhaled them! It's also comforting to know I have many many more in the series to look forward to!

    Eve is a fantastic character. She's tough, kick ass, smart, and she has hints of a troubled past. I like that the author doesn't dump a ton of information on us about her past, she gives tidbits in each book.

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

    She was a great narrator and would listen to her again.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen while I walk and this was a good story to hold my attention.


    Any additional comments?

    Will be listening to the rest of the series.

    Speed Date Review:

    At first glance: This is my 2nd go around with JD Robb so it is more like a 2nd chance to fall in love.

    First Date: Eve is back on the case in Glory in Death. She is an awesome cop and willing to do whatever it takes to solve the case. I love what a hard-nosed by-the-book cop she can be.

    Second Date: I am starting to get the Roarke thing. I mean he gave her a room which just made me melt. I am coming to like them as a couple.

    Third Date: What an exhilarating end! I loved how the case worked out and have to say that I am sold!

    Audio Date:

    Narrated by Susan Ericksen /9 hrs and 49 mins


    I love Susan's narration. I think her pacing is really spot on and her voice for Eve is perfect. I still don't like her Roarke, it is growing on me :) I will be continuing these on audio!

    "Intense mystery and relationship developments"

    This was intense... I liked it better than the first book in the series- while the murders were more violent, they were without the graphic sexual component of Naked in Death's crimes.

    I love the repartee between Dallas and Roarke (their, ahem, intimate scenes are a little more, um, vivid and vigorous than is to my usual reading taste, but are never crude and the writing is good). I only wish Dallas didn't immediately get her dander up when his name pops up in relation to anyone/thing in a case - she is immediately on the defensive about it and weary of his every tie and involvement, ready to both think the worst and shield him and/or her from it becoming public knowledge... Frankly, I think she overreacts. And while I can understand her emotional baggage causing some of the issues, I was a little bit in disbelief about their sudden split and re-connecting circumstances, if she was having that much trouble, believing something like that if she (admitted that she) loved him and needed him, that that made her less independent and strong and therefore lowered her self esteem and degraded her ability to do her job. Thus far she has never defined herself by anything but how well she does her job, so it's a big hurdle, and i think somehow they flew over it really fast while she's still working it out in her head... I'm glad she's talking to the department psychologist more though (both case and no-case related).

    I also love Dallas' working relationships, with Feeney and the Commander. I share her distaste for the media. This was a good mystery, and solid procedural, going through the evidence and suspects and revisiting the scenes. Oddly enough, I had picked out the murderer by the second death - almost fingering them on a hunch, but my suspicions were confirmed by the circumstances and aftermath of victim number three. I was glad Dallas caught onto the same clue I did there, even if it took a while for it to come to light. I liked Officer Peabody too, I got a kick out of her no-nonsense demeanor and how she got on with Dallas as they continued to investigate together.

    Narration was good. Only had one or two spots with voice-swap confusion, and those were in heated dialogue. Ericksen gives just the right tone and cadence to match Lt Dallas' demeanor and the narrative style.

    Can't wait to see where the next book takes Eve and Roarke. ^_^
