Beneath the façade of glamour, Eve found that the world of high fashion thrived on an all-consuming obsession for youth and fame. One that led from the runway to the dark underworld of New York City where drugs could be found to fulfill any desire - for a price.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

I loved the book and its characters. Plot was great and so were the unexpected twists. I had a problem with the narration. Sounded like it was recorded in a tunnel and made it hard to focus on the actual story.
Susan Ericksen is the best narrator I have heard. All of the different characters had different voices and different accents and she made them all so believable. The book it's self is great as well. Otherwise I would not have been listening to the third book.
Ericksen doing a good job narrating as usual. Sorry I can't say the same about Robert's writing. It feels like half the book is about the upcoming wedding. And the story? The crime story I mean. Well, there is one, but it's weak and sketchy. Pretty sloppy writing as far as Robert's normal standards go. Typical "series writing". Characters are good though. Book as a whole - disappointing!
Probably but we want to continue to listen to the rest of the series before we start over.
They each care their own. To me you can only compare it to the previous two books.
Changing how Summerset sounds.
I laughed and it made me sad some too.
I really enjoy Susan Ericksen's narration of this series.
Not really. The stories are good, but I am not riveted by any of the stories in the series thus far. They are good, but not great.
if i had part 2
When I bought the book it did not show it had 2 parts so I only have part 1 and no way to get part 2
It is above average but the author uses the LORD's name in vain constantly. It would have been more enjoyable if she had come up with an original expletive since the stories are set in the future.
The stories are original.
Eve in her wedding gown.
I am far beyond the plot of the story!..
Flashbacks of Eve's past dragged the darkness out of forbidden places of my psych that I have been hiding for so long... Cries, pleas, and struggles of a little girl were surreal and shattered my want to believe perfect self...
What is the immorality? Is it a flashbacks that hunt us for the rest of our lives or the images of death that we won’t let go?
I love the ultimate intertwine of love, suspend, and psychology…
I was looking for a new book and J.D. Robb's most recent In Death book was listed. I read some of the reviews and the raves sucked me in. One of the reviews suggested starting with the first book, even though it wasn't as good as those that followed. I beg to differ. The first book was awesome and the reader, Susan Ericksen, is outstanding.
Recommend this book to anyone.
The book was filled with really good characters, but in this one, the main character, Eve Dallas was the most interesting. Great getting to know her.
Wanted to, but had to stop to get some sleep.

I love it when a fellow book lover and blogger recommends an audio book and it blows me away! Thanks to Nise (Under the Boardwalk), I decided to listen to J.D. Robb's In Death series on audio and I absolutely loved this production. She told me that the narrator delivered the goods with the voices and she was right. I loved Eve and Mavis' voices. Susan Ericksen, the narrator changed them up beautifully and in my opinion captured their personalities. This was a fantastic way to drive to and from work each day. I loved it so much that I bought the next book in the series and have already downloaded it to my iPod!!!
Recommend? With no qualms. This audio production was fantastic and Eve's backstory is starting to be fleshed out!
