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!

    Story
    "Warning to serious readers--it's a romance novel"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I honestly can't understand why anyone would bother to read a second book in this series, after reading the first. But tens of thousands obviously do just that. That is the biggest mystery of this book.


    Has Glory in Death turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes! I never suspected it would be this disappointing and annoying. I don't know why people who read this author even bother to read at all. Why not just watch soap operas? I expect much more from books.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance could have been less melodramatic; also, she sounded like an actress from the 1940s, which I found particularly annoying given that this was a novel set in the future.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I will allow that it is a promising sign that such an independent and competent career woman can be the protagonist of such a long and successful book series.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a romance novel that masquerades as a police detective/futuristic novel. It was disappointingly easy to figure out who-dun-it. And the romance was so shallow. The protagonist Eve Dallas is beautiful but doesn't know it, has no fashion sense, and is from a disadvantaged background. But she still snags the most eligible bachelor ever to exist! He is Irish, handsome, incredibly wealthy (a self-made man), but also so sensitive that he likes her cat. Dreamy! Ugh. And the sex is repetitive, several times a day--seemed like clockwork.

    "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.

    "J D ROBB does not disappoint"

    Love this series! Heating the series after reading before has got me falling in love with Roake all over again and smiling as Eve does not disappoint. Love her strong attitude but soft heart.

    "by book #2 of this series..."

    You will be hooked. Love Roark, side characters that return are fun and mystery keeps you going. The narration, especially Roark, helps make the story.

    "Eve Dallas Book 2"

    Robb aka Roberts "fleshes out" her creation in this second book as we get to know Eve better. She gets rid of Eve's red purse interest and moves her further down the road to Noir. Eve admits her love for Roark; her professional relationship with Nadine develops into a personal one; intro Peabody and Chief Tibble. Ericksen is the voice of this series.

    "I loved it!"
    Do you have any additional comments?

    Throughout this entire audiobook, I kept thinking, “I know who the bad guy is”.  Then the plot would shift, I would think I was wrong, and it would be someone else; yet, I kept having this nagging feeling about who it was; I was right, but it was still an ultimate surprise because I wasn’t 100% sure until it was revealed. 

    I love this futuristic world; the flying cars and the crazy technology, yet people, and the passions that drive them, are the same as they are today.  Eve Dallas is the ultimate Kick Ass Chick, and I am looking forward to continuing this series for a long time.  I only have 40 or so more books to go to catch up.....Sara

    "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.
