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.

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.
JD Robb had me hooked with the 2nd book in this series. I have spent most of my spare time in the last year listening to ALL of this series and I love all of the characters that have developed with each book. Mavis and Eve make the best if not the weirdest set of best friends!! And to see Eve develop from having no friends except Mavis into having a group of friends that are very diverse, funny, and I can picture myself right there in 2060 having a tube of Pepsi right with Dallas. Can't wait for the next book. Hurry up September!!!! And thank you to Jd Robb (Nora Roberts) for creating these characters to be part of my reading pleasure!!!
Definitely not. She starts this book out with trying to do an Irish accent for almost the entire 1st chapter. She was so bad, that it ruined the whole experience for me, and I really couldnt' concentrate on the story.
I haven't read the print version. The audio version is done well.
Roarke. He has everything. He has a mysterious, dark past. Now he has bcome a law abiding citizen. He has money, a castle of a home. He loves Eve completely, unquestionably. He's sweet, kind, and understanding. He's also a genius in gadgets and in all-things computer related.
She does an excellent Irish brogue.
Yes but it actually took four or five sittings. It's difficult to sit and listen for eight or nine hours!
Yes. Lt. Dallas is tough, savvy, and a "cop's cop" Good detective work, believable.
Being that this one is in the future I can't compare. I typically don't read sci fi or futuristic stories but this was believable.
In the shoe store with her partner, who's literally drooling over the high priced shoes. Their interaction is hilarious.
I laughed a few times.
Good enough that I downloaded two more of Robb's works.
My husband and I both love this series - so much so that we are making ourselves listen to other things to prolong the experience as we get closer to caught up!! The stories are intriguing and keep you listening. The time on long car trips just zooms by. Susan Ericksen really brings them to life. This is one instance where listening is far better than reading a printed book.
Continuation of the ongoing 'In Death' theme.
Susan Ericksen brings all of the main characters to life. She does an amazing job of differentiating them. I particularly like her Peabody.
If you haven't read an 'In death' book before - start from the beginning!
