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.

    "Short but sweet"

    Keeping in mind this is one of JD Robb's novellas I think it was a fun and quick read. No it's not as intense as some of her stories can be, but it was nice to read something that has a lighter tone for a change, as I'm sure it was fun for her to write. Definitely the characters are amusing with how they handle the spooky nature of the story. The narration is still the same, as fantastic as always. I have enjoyed the entire In Death series, some better than others but all are entertaining.

    "VERY DISAPPOINTING (If you are a JD Robb follower)"

    If you are an avid reader of the JD Robb Eve Dallas series, you will be disappointed with this one. It is one of a few short stories J D Robb has done and has the same characters and same type of story as the longer versions, but because they are much shorter, they tend to be very trite. There simply is not enough time to introduce the usual twists and turns that are prevalent in the longer books. If you do not follow the Eve Dallas series, you will probably find this book to be quite satisfactory. It is very fast, so there is simply not much time for plot development or introduction of red herrings, but as a general mystery novel, it is ok. I have found that all of her "short stories" suffer from this same problem. The short ones tend to be 3-4 hours listening time while her unabridged longer novels run 7-9 hours.

    "Good Addition to Series"

    I do not really understand why there are such negative reviews for this one: I found it really enjoyable.

    There were supernatural elements to it, but that was kind of the point; and seeing Eve react to them was at times hilarious.

    Story
    "Good but short and abrupt ending"
    What disappointed you about Haunted in Death?

    The Ending! Unlike most other In Death books, there is an awkward and abrupt ending. The case and background is building, characters are introduced and then all the sudden its over. Very unlike the other mysteries of this series. No challenge.


    What could J. D. Robb have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Even though this book is shorter, still include the slower unfolding of the case. Don't just throw the conclusion at the readers.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Wasn't really one. The book is basically three scenes.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Haunted in Death?

    None! I would recommend adding scenes. If you took a single one away there wouldn't be a book.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be seeing if I can get a refund. There is no substance to this book and it should have been sold for $2 instead of almost $10.

    I love this series but may consider skipping the .5 editions after this disappointment.

    "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.

    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.

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    No.
