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.

    "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!

    "Entertaining"

    Another great listen by J.D. Robb. If you like this series you will like this one as well. Has a few new twists, not just more of the same. A good choice.

    "Indulgence in dealth"

    J D Robb has written yet another book that kept my attention. I started listening to audio books from the library. I enjoy the fact that the voices for the characters are the same and they fit the character perfectly. I would be disappintedif they changed. Thanks Sebrina

    "Thoroughly Enjoyable!"

    I absolutely enjoyed this book as I have enjoyed all of the J. D. Robb novels centered around the "In Death" series. One great pleasure has been to watch the characters evolve and mesh; to see relationships build and strengthen. The characters seem more developed with each novel and Ms Ericksen is simply outstanding as the narrator. How she manages to be on target with the numerous voice changes is a wonder in itself. Her narration is one of the reasons I listen to certain parts again and again even after completing the story.

    Eve Dallas, the main character, is just as intense as she was in the beginning, but has learned to relax and to trust those around her in her daily sphere. She is a tough, smart New York police lieutenant who has a mind that can dissect and analyze with the best of them - Nero Wolfe, Ellery Queen - those fascinating detectives we enjoy so much. She is fearless! In this story, her attempts to throw in well known phrases to describe a circumstance (i.e., "the icing on the cupcake" instead of just "the icing on the cake," and "leaving a trail of cookie crumbs" instead of a "trail of bread crumbs," tend to make her even more human considering her terrible childhood which had no fairy tales or bedtime stories or love; only pain, fear and terror.

    This story line is exciting and fast-paced. It was woven so that the listener's interest remains spiked. Again, the narration puts this listen over the top.
