Crack another case with Eve Dallas.
©2007 J. D. Robb; (P)2007 Brilliance Audio
All I need in life is my family and an inexhaustable supply of books.
Every now and then I read a comment on the "In Death" series where the reviewer has a negative comment on Susan Ericksen's narration. This baffles me. Ms. Ericksen IS Eve, Roarke, Peabody, etc. I would NEVER want another narrator for this series.
I enjoy Nora Roberts/J D Robb's writing and I love Ms. Ericksen's narration. Please, don't listen to the negative comments. Listen to one of the books and make the decision yourself. I don't think you will regret it.
I can't imagine anyone else reading the In Death books. Susan Ericksen is great, in my opinion and, after what seems like tons of books in the series she IS the voice of Dallas, Roarke, Peabody (my favorite), the commander and everyone else. The stories are so entertaining and fun to listen to, I wish J.D. Robb could write more of them. When she writes as Nora Roberts, the books don't send me but this series is one of my very favorites.
I just discovered JD Robb's "In Death" series of books not long ago. I'm in book hog heaven! I started with book one and am working my way up the list. As soon as I finish one I move on to the next.
I love the characters. A good plot will fall flat if you don't like the main characters. All of Robb's characters are fleshed out, warts and all.
Susan Ericksen is irreplaceable as the narrator. She does an excellent job.
I highly recommend all of the "In Death" books for a great whodunnit escape in fantasy.
I am at a loss to come up with enough superlatives for J.D. Robb (author) and Susan Ericksen (narrator)!! There are "scenes" in this one that I played for friends, out of context, because they are so PERFECTLY staged. I would point out that that alone should tell you a LOT!! You can't HAVE such scenes if you are not thoroughly engrossed in the story and have a big investment in the characters!!
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
The plot is as good as ever. Susan Erikson's performance on the different characters were excellent. I love the voice for Rourke with his Irish accent. Eve Dallas as usual got her man. I like how the crime is solved. I am still catching up with the few books in the series that I have not bought yet. I enjoyed the series so far and will continue to follow up.
This one really got to me at the end, it tugged on the heartstrings.
I enjoyed the plot greatly, and did not see the ending coming at all.
Great addition to series!
Unlike the rest of the series, this one took me FOREVER to slog through as it was slow and lacked the normal humor and character charm of the others. If you miss this one well you actually haven't miss anything
ROURKE, love his IRISH accent and mysteriousness about him
Susan Ericksen does a great job with all her characters, she started this book off a little slow but it picked up as the book moved on. Many readers commented about the Peabody character and I had braced myself it wouldn't sound like Peabody, but I thought she still held true to her character.
"Never had an in death book I haven't enjoyed."
I have never had an In Death book that I haven't enjoyed an this was no different. Cops are dying the murderer another cop or a bad mans flunky only Lt Eve Dallas and her team can bring the murderer to justice.
