Publisher's Summary

Number 12 is an urban legend in 2060 New York City. The hot club in the 1960s, it is now reported to be haunted...and cursed. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called there to investigate the apparent murder of Radcliff Hopkins, its new owner and the grandson of the man who made Number 12 a cultural icon. Several bullets from a banned gun end his dream of returning the building to its former glory.

With everyone around her talking about the supernatural, pragmatic Eve won't let rumors of ghosts distract her from hard evidence. The case becomes even more bizarre when it appears to be linked to the suspicious disappearance of a rock star eighty-five years ago. As Eve searches for the connection, logic clashes with the unexplainable. She may be forced to face the threat of something more dangerous than a flesh-and-blood killer.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "Great for a short story"

    Not bad for a Novella, Dallas gets the prefect case for Halloween. Another person has died in Number 12. Radcliff Hopkins has been murdered in Number 12, and it has links with a murder that happen 85 year before. This is a good little story, it does not have as much detail as J. D. Robb's books, but it is a short story so everything happens quicker. Keep that in mind when you buy it.

    Story
    "This was a little different, but I enjoyed"
    What did you love best about Haunted in Death?

    I best liked this book because it was a little different and I especially liked the ending where eve had a confrontation killer and the writer left kind of a hint that just maybe there could be something unexplainable, even if there was no such thing as ghosts.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the humor and I like the suspense throughout the whole story.


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

    I listen to several of Susan Ericksen's performances and this one was really outstanding, the character that tried to portray as a ghost was transformed for person to ghost so smoothly that I could actually visualize the scene.


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

    It made me laugh several times, my funniest moment was when Peabody was afraid to go into the haunted building and Eve made fun of her and then later Eve teases Roark when he expresses his belief in the building be haunted with ghosts.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a fun book with a good twist at the ending.

    "An Eerie Mystery"
    What made the experience of listening to Haunted in Death the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy stories of this kind...where there is a question of the paranormal and is experienced by someone cynical.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Eve's cynicism. Peabody's fascination. Roarke's interest.


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

    I enjoy her performance with these characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the killer is interrogated by Eve near the end.

    No.

    What three words best describe Susan Ericksen’s voice?

    Blah for the supporting characters.


    Any additional comments?

    It's another book in the series. this one is a bit more interesting with some of the childhood history (little bits) of Eve Dallas. I really wish she would just get some of the issues from the past out and deal with them like the tough cop she is. Like the rest of us in the world would. I do enjoy the series just wish I had more time to

    "Save Your Money!!"

    I just forced myself to listen all the way through "Eternity in Death," and made myself try to listen to this book because I paid for it. Let me save you time and aggravation: Save your money!!
    I am a seasoned audio-book listener with a library of over 75 audiobooks in this genre. I can tell you that this book, if the curse words were removed, would be better placed in the children's section. It's written on a fifth-grade level (if that); the plot is flat and the reader turns the lead character's side-kick into an audible version of Gomer Pile.
    The female lead character lacks just that- character. She's curt, bossy, and one-dimensional. Her love interest is even less developed; leaving one to believe the author used Johnny Bravo as inspiration. His character is transparent, self-centered and exudes machismo.
    I keep expecting the side-kick to say, "Aw, golly gee; I thought the amusement park was haunted by a real ghost, not the former owner in a Halloween Mask. "
    Bottom Line: Wasted Money, Angry Listener. I'd laugh if I hadn't just spent $30 for two of these audiobooks.
