When a murder disrupts the Irish vacation she is taking with her husband, Roarke, Eve realizes that no place is safe - not an Irish wood or the streets of the manic city she calls home. But nothing prepares her for what she discovers upon her return to the cop shop in New York City....
A driver for a top-of-the-line limousine service is found dead - shot through the neck with a crossbow. The car was booked by an executive at a venerable security company whose identity had been stolen. Days later, a stunning, high-priced escort is found killed at Coney Island, a bayonet stuck in her heart. And again, the trail leads to a CEO whose information has been hijacked.
With a method established, but no motive to be found, Eve begins to fear that she has come across that most dangerous of criminals, a thrill killer, but one with a taste for the finer things in life - and death. Eve does not know where or when the next kill will be, or that her investigation will take her to the rarefied circle that Roarke travels in - and into the perverted heart of madness....
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

While i enjoy all of the In Death books and hope to have them all as audio books i would not have purchased this one if i had read it first. Not that by itself it is not a good book, it is just to much like an earlier book in the series. Been there, read it & listened to it already.
Not for me. The story wasn't interesting. I fell a sleep on it a lot. I tried to listen to this series after reading those positive reviews. I really wanted to like it, because of Nora Roberts, but just couldn't.
This storyline is fabulous I just wish that Eve was not so rude, I know her character is a strong formidable woman but the way she is portrayed is a little over the top. The way in which she speaks to some people is annoying. Overall though I just love the books very well written with lots of twists. I love all the characters- thank you- Sharyn Campbell
Another great start to the book. Having Eve and Rourke being on vacation and in Ireland was terrific. Have some of their personal time is great.
I could not stand the narrator whining while seeming to be trying to talk tough cop talk. It was overdone and did not come off. She seemed like a griping teen age girl. I gave up fairly quickly.
I love the humorous banter between Dallas and Peabody, Rourke, or Summerset.
I have tried to compare the "In Death" series to the "Women's Murder Club" series by Patterson and Paetro. Similar backdrop - super successful, female cop in a big city. But "Women's Murder Club" just cannot hold a candle to Dallas and her team. The drama, passion, and humor is just not there with Patterson and Paetro.
I have listened to all of the "In Death" series and Ericksen is ALWAYS on her game. She is by far the best narrator that I have ever heard for this genre.
All of the "In Death" series books make me laugh out loud.
I enjoyed the story line. I have read all the books in this series this was the first Audible version for me.
I lived in NY for 20 years and I felt that narrator's protraction of the characters was way off. I especially dislike Peabody's accent. I couldn't get past this and probably will not listen to another audible book in this series.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
I love these characters and the story that developes around them.
Thank you and keep them coming.
