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.

    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. ^_^

    "story is well written and read"
    Where does Glory in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    this is only the 2nd book we have listened too and we have enjoyed it as much as the first.


    What other book might you compare Glory in Death to and why?

    Naked in Death as it is the first book in this series.


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

    Her voices for each character make it seem more real. Very impressive she can do so many.

    "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.

    "Better than Book 1"
    Would you listen to Glory in Death again? Why?

    I am not sure I would listen to these types of books again as they are more for enjoyment. There are too many other books in the world that I want to read/listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    There is a tendency to for JD Robb to repeat background information about Eve Dallas in each novel. That gets a bit annoying at times. I also am not overly find of Dr. Mira and her psychoanalysis but I see how it fits into the plot.

    I thought the plot was well done and it was not overly obvious who the killer was.

    "Sexy as ever..."

    This book is the second in the series - and I am reading them in order. It was just as enjoyable as the first, and I enjoyed getting to know the characters I met in the first book. The sexiness from the first book for sure carries over to this one... the chemistry between the main characters is definitely still there.

    The 'who-done-it' part of the book was more transparent than in book one, however. I had the mystery figured out by the early middle of the book... then it was just a waiting game until Eve figured it out.

    Enjoyable, though. I'll be moving on through the series - because I'd like to see what happens after this book's surprise ending.

    "I can't stand Eve Dallas"
    What disappointed you about Glory in Death?

    I purchased the first 8 books in this series because I got a great price. I thought they were mysteries - I didn't realize there would be so much corny romance. I will continue to listen because the stories are ok, I'll just keep fast forwarding through the supposedly "steamy" sex.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. D. Robb again?

    I wouldn't buy a book at full price. I will listen to the ones I have already purchased.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Overly dramatic and she makes the main character seem really hostile - I think this is why I dislike her so much.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation.
