Publisher's Summary

Eve Dallas is one tough cop. She's got no problem dealing with a holiday reveler in a red suit who plunges 37 stories and gives new meaning to the term "sidewalk Santa". But when she gets back to the station and Trudy Lombard shows up, it's all Eve can do to hold it together.

Instantly, she's plunged back into the past, to the days when she was a vulnerable, traumatized girl - trapped in foster care with the twisted woman who now sits in front of her, smiling.

Trudy claims she just wanted to see how Eve was doing. But Eve's husband, Roarke, suspects otherwise - and his suspicions prove correct when Trudy arrives at his office demanding money in exchange for keeping the ugly details of his wife's childhood a secret. Barely restraining himself, Roarke shows her the door - and makes it clear that she'd be wise to get out of New York and never bother him or his wife again.

But just a few days later, Trudy's found on the floor of her hotel room, a mess of bruises and blood.

A cop to the core, Eve is determined to solve the case, if only for the sake of Trudy's bereaved son. Unfortunately, Eve is not the only one to have suffered at this woman's hands, and she and Roarke will follow a circuitous, dangerous path to find out who turned this victimizer into a victim.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "first audio JD Robb"

    I've really enjoyed reading JD Robb's In Death series. I decided to listen to this one as I had a ridiculous amount of housework to do that I couldn't put off while I curled up with a good book. I enjoyed the listen. The reader does a good job with voices, accents, etc. Many of the characters didn't sound as I expected. Peabody is far more goofy in the audio and McNab is so very dorky. I'd also love Roarke's voice to be more manly. But she does a fantastic job with the accent and these mild concerns didn't stop me from ordering Kindred In Death, the newest JD Robb, from audible. The second listen was even better as I knew what to expect re: Peabody and McNab.

    "Outstanding"
    What did you love best about Memory in Death?

    I enjoyed the look into Eve's past. More than just the stuff we get in every book regarding her father - but more about what happened after she was put into the system. I'd love to see more of this kind of thing in the books... and less of the stuff before she was 8.

    "Mean people"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, It is a good story revealing Eve's past. She remembers so little. It is always so interesting when she does.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Again I like the way Eve and Roarke work together. Even thought It takes Eve a while to let Roarke help her. She is always so independent.


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

    Eve and Roarke


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Eve realize that she was pushing away the one who is on her side all along.


    Any additional comments?

    Love there books. I read them over and over.

    "Great One!"

    Yet another one that really puts things together. I, for one, did not see through it to the true villain until the end.

    As it was, had intriguing glimpses into Eve's backstory.

    "I can almost see the characters"
    Would you listen to Memory in Death again? Why?

    Yes. I love the way Susan Ericksen brings these characters to life. Added to the character development genius of J.D. Robb and you almost always can count on a hit.

    Story
    "Christmas Eve"

    I am a big fan of the "In Death" series, and this is one of my favorites. Three reasons why:

    1. There are no gruesome serial murders; one of my few complaints with this series is that too many of the plots hinge on serial killers. Motivations for the murders here are straightforward.

    2. We learn more about Eve's tragic back story and see a new, vulnerable, and totally believable side to her character.

    3. We get to attend Eve and Roarke's Christmas gala, and watch amused as the socially challenged Eve helps with the arrangements for "this .... thing .... tonight." ("It's called a party," the patient Roarke responds.)

    All in all, a great way for fans of Eve, Roarke, and friends to get into the holiday spirit!

    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.

    "Good book if you don't ask too much of it"

    As as a light "girls" book with a bit of mystery thrown in, this is a satisfying novel. Even though we hear about some turmoil experienced by the heroine in her earier life, we never really get the pathos that one becomes accustomed to with, for example a character created by James Lee Burke. The intimate scenes between Eve and her husband are fun and sometimes steamy and also serve to keep the book on the lighter side. As a mysterm it falls short ... so I just decided to take it as it is .. and enjoy it.
