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.

    "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!

    "Seriously bad story"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    No


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Likeness, Tana French


    Any additional comments?

    This is a seriously boring, poorly written, predictable story. I'm surprised at all the positive reviews.

    "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.

    Story
    "Eve is irritating but story good"

    I am not sure what Roark sees in Eve. She is self centered, bad tempered, totally self absorbed and not interested at all in anything Roark does for a living. She is uninterested in his life, his friends, his social life and his work. She thinks everything revolves around herself. Roark seems pretty healthy mentally and very successful so not sure what he sees in her other than sex which he could get anywhere. I try to keep from getting annoyed from Eve while listening to the story but it is hard to do. I listened to the first book and three from later in the series. Does she improve over time? Doesn't seem to so far. Susan Ericksen does a great job of narration. I might take a break before I listen to number 3.

    "Just as good the second time around"

    i have read or listened to all the "in death" books, but going back to the start refreshed many things- like how Roarke got the button in his pocket, how Dallas met Nadine & Peabody. I am enjoying them just as much as the first time!!

    I'm a big fan of Whispersync! My favorite genre is fantasy, YA and adult, but I'll occasionally listen to/read NA romance or space opera.

    "action packed novel with an added romance!"

    second book in the "in death" series, and already cannot stop listening! Susan Ericksen does a finominal job narrating this series so far! she adds the perfect touch to each character, brining their written personae to life!

    Story
    "A romance first, only secondarily a mystery"

    The write up for this book emphasizes the mystery aspect, but that is not what you will find. This is primarily a romance (I am not a reader of Nora Roberts, so I was surprised). If you want a mildly entertaining story about a woman with the emotional maturity of a 15-year-old, this might be the book for you. This should definitely be in the "romance" genre not the "mystery & thriller."

    I did not solve the who-dun-it as quickly as other reviewers, but in any case it was not a surprise - the guilty party met all of the stereotypes. What did not read true was the apparent success of a woman who seems completely unable to separate her personal issues from her work as a police officer. Other than that huge lapse, the story is well developed and unfolds appropriately.

    I did not find the narrator engaging. I found her characterizations too broad and laughable. Her diction and pacing are good. If you listen to the sample, you should have a sense if she is a narrator you want to listen to for 10 hours.

    The book was originally written in 1995, so I am not going to rant about the ridiculous image of life in the mid 21st century, but I did roll my eyes many times over the silly developments we will soon be living with. (Dallas has so many gadgets on her person at all time, I pictured a Batman-like utility belt).

    I will not be reading or listening to any other books in this series, nor will I listen to other books narrated by Erickson. But can anyone explain to me why Roarke has only one name? - like Cher or Madonna, he is only ever referred to as "Roarke".

    "Excellent story."

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

    "Just love this book"
    If you could sum up Glory in Death: In Death, Book 2 in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, exciting, romantic


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite characters are Roarke and Eve. Shame I can't afford to just buy every book one after the other or I would. Cannot recommend highly enough


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I love Susan Ericksen as a narrator. She does distinctive accents and you can tell easily who she is depicting. She is a very clever audio reader.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not usually a fan of romance. I read and listen to crime but the romance in this book is so different. I just love it.

    I have to say I love her Roarke it's great.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me smile.
