TO SEE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN EVE AND HER FRIEND
PEBODY BECAUSE IT WAS FUN WATCHING HER TO WORK WITH EVE
WHEN EVE HAD TO ARREST HER BEST FRIEN
YES, IT MADE ME CRY WHEN HER FRIEND WAS TAKEN INTO AREST
I LOVED THIS BOOK BECAUSE EVE MADE NEW FRIENDS
Enjoying this series as each character develops depth, immersing the reader in the life of Eve Dallas and a growing family of 'real life' friends we would all want to know! Any discrepancies or whether one agrees or not with all packed in each book...are just nitpicking and if anything makes the reader love the 'real life' author, J. D. Robb/Nora Roberts even more.
Great work! Great Read! Great Story! Don't stop, please don't stop this series! Read latest books so decided to start at the beginning! Thank you JD
I have listened to it again. This is the second time I've bought it. I listen because the mystery is good and so is the romance in this one. I usually catch more about the story the second time around.
When the killer reveals himself it is just as much a surprise to me as it was to Eve.
I've only listened to her threw this series. If someone else were to narrate the series idk if I would recognize or relate to the characters as well because her character voices don't change from book to book.
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
STORY (mystery/thriller) - You can always count on Eve and Roarke (the main characters) for a great story. Eve Dallas is a New York detective. Roarke, her fiancé, is a handsome billionaire. In this story they solve the mystery of several murders that seem to revolve around an illegal fountain-of-youth drug, and Eve's best friend Mavis appears to have committed the first brutal murder of a famous fashion model. There are wedding plans going on, and you will also hear a small glimpse of Eve's past. The book rocks along with a great mystery and police investigation, then adds a twist at the end. (And there's a toast by Peabody which is a total hoot!).
This has become my go-to series when I want to hear a great mystery. I listened to one or two books in this series out of order, then decided it was so good that I started over at the beginning. Not only are there great characters, but I also love the futuristic setting. The mysteries are always the perfect combination of suspense without being so complicated you have to stress to keep things straight. Then there's a small romantic thread running through the series as well, just for an added touch.
PERFORMANCE - And to top off the great story, there's the wonderful performance of Susan Ericksen. Every time I hear her narrate one of these books, I wish I had a sixth star to award. Her voices, her emotions, everything is just perfect.
OVERALL - This is Book 3 of a huge series of 53 books. There is a lot of what I call "cop mouth," in other words, abundant F-words and other expletives. There are several murders, but the author doesn't dwell on gory descriptions. There is also a small amount of fairly hot sex. I'd recommend this book for anyone who likes police procedurals. Each book stands alone but the characters and relationships develop slowly book by book, so you should start at the beginning.
the writer spends to much time on repeating the same old lust between characters.
will not buy another book by the author till she stops repeating the characters actions among them selves.
repeats to much in story line
in the top
all the other in death series except its different story from all the others.
the voices endear you to the characters
