Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Weak performance"
    Would you ever listen to anything by J. D. Robb again?

    Not likekly


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Indulgence in Death to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version. The audio version is done well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does an excellent Irish brogue.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but it actually took four or five sittings. It's difficult to sit and listen for eight or nine hours!


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "More!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Lt. Dallas is tough, savvy, and a "cop's cop" Good detective work, believable.


    What other book might you compare Indulgence in Death to and why?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    In the shoe store with her partner, who's literally drooling over the high priced shoes. Their interaction is hilarious.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a few times.


    Any additional comments?

    Good enough that I downloaded two more of Robb's works.

    Story
    "My first -- and probably last -- J. D. Robb book"

    A hundred zillion readers can't be wrong, can they? These books sell like crazy -- I had to see what it was all about.

    First of all, switch your player to "fast read". The narrator reads so slowly it'll drive you nuts. I can't tell a good Irish accent from a bad one, but this rendition started grating on my nerves about a half hour in. That 'darlin' thing they've all got going was seriously overdone.

    Secondly, at this stage of life, I've decided to minimize the amount of time I spent with people who are obnoxious, bitchy and, in general, unpleasant to be around. That being the case, I can't imagine spending any more time with Dectective Eve Dallas. Honestly, I can't imagine why anyone wants to be around her -- including the fawning Roarke, who must be loaded with issues of his own. Eve Dallas is just crabby and bitchy, 100% of the time, to anyone and everyone. Is that the way "new' women show strength and power? Lisa Gardner's D. D. Warren is much the same -- just a really bitchy woman. I gave up on that series, too. There are plenty of tough strong women protagonists out there -- you don't get any tougher than Kinsey Millhone, Anna Pigeon, Ellie Hatcher or Bailey Wiggins, but they don't behave as if they have to chop everyone from waiters, co-workers, lovers and murderers into pieces with their vicious tongues. (Okay -- It could be the narrator who interprets the character that way. I guess I'd have to actually read one of these books to find out, and I'm not about to punish myself to that extent. )

    The plot wasn't bad, actually -- quite inventive. So if you can get by the first part -- all the hugging and kissing in Ireland, where Eve drags out tired old jokes about being wakened by a "cock" (ah, that would be a rooster) and touts her ignorance about anything domestic as a character asset -- the story itself, back in NY, is entertaining and innovative.

    So listen at your own risk -- the thing is, there are so many really excellent books out there that this kind of feminine barbarism needn't be tolerated. Instead of J. D. Robb, try Julia Spencer-Flemming, or Deborah Crombie, or even Laura Lippman. They don't wrote "cozies", but neither do they blister your ears with PMS protagonists.

    "I love these stories"
    What made the experience of listening to Indulgence in Death the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Continuation of the ongoing 'In Death' theme.


    Which character ??? as performed by Susan Ericksen ??? was your favorite?

    Susan Ericksen brings all of the main characters to life. She does an amazing job of differentiating them. I particularly like her Peabody.


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't read an 'In death' book before - start from the beginning!

    "Worst reading I have experienced! Insulting."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who doesn't mind silly accents and innocuos characters.


    What was most disappointing about J. D. Robb’s story?

    Narration, accents, interpretation of Eva as rude and crude. References to futuristic technology such as


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

    Never.Why does Peabody talk like a mentally challenged woman right out of the film,


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom and impatience.


    Any additional comments?

    Story may not have been so bad but for the narration.

    "WOW! Susan Ericksen!!!"

    I wish Ms. Ericksen would narrate everything I read. If you read J.D. Robb, then go find other books narrated by Ms. Ericksen - you won't be disappointed.

    "I love all of the J.D. Robb "In Death" books!"

    I absolutely love all of the "In Death" series. I love the reader's ability to adapt her voice to sound like all of the many characters in the books. I am a little sad that I only have 2 more books to listen to in the series before I am at the end (so far) of the (mis)adventures of Eve, Roarke, She-body, McNabb and company!

    I love Nora Roberts, and I am amazed at how prolific a writer that she is! Keep up the great work, and I will continue to be a loyal listener, whichever nom-de-plume you use!

    "Love In Death Series"

    I have read almost all the In Death series and I will say I can't live without my Roarke and Eve fix. I could only wish for a man like Roarke! I love J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts and have not yet found a book she has written that I have not enjoyed. I like the futurustic possibilities in this series that are believable. Susan Ericksen is GREAT!!! I have listened to her narrating other books besides this series and have enjoyed all . . . yet, I love the In Death Series so much that I keep thinking of Eve & Roarke while listening to her in other books. YEAH for J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts!
