Eve's name has made a Christmas list, but it's not for being naughty or nice. It's for putting a serial killer behind bars. Now the escaped madman has her in his sights. With her husband, Roarke, at her side, Eve must stop the man from exacting his bloody vengeance - or die trying.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

"Gritty and steamy." (Booklist)
"Very suspenseful." (The Literary Times)
I recomend this book because its story is intense and the characters are strong.
I liked David Palmer because he is very clever.
This is my first audiobook narrated by Susan Ericksen. I liked her job.
This book is relatively short and interesting.
Tell us about yourself!Omnivorous catholic reader who especially enjoys unusual mysteries and thrillers
Each novel in the In Death series builds upon the last and continues to fascinate and intrigue the reader. Midnight In Death is another tantalizing taste of Eve and Roarke's electric relationship
the plot keeps you on edge by slowly revealing little pieces of information that taken together lead to a satisfying resolution.
I have listened to all the "In Death" series to this point and I cannot imagine any other narrator for this series as Susan Ericksen manages to make each character individual and instantly recognizable.I especially like her interpretation of Delia Peabody.
The build up of suspense in Midnight in Death is masterful!I found it very difficult to take a break from listening.
The "In Death" series is a fabulous series for audio books.Would it be possible to all the this series , including anthologies etc, available in audio book form.I've looked for other JD Robb titles but was unable to find the audio format
I am so addicted to having these friends/characters with me that I keep my iPod earphone in one ear at all times and whenever I take a break - like walking to get coffee at the other end of the office - I click on and listen for a few minutes.
Each book just gets better and better. I have recommended this series to everyone I know - im part because they need to know why I'm busy listening rather than chatting with THEM!!
Good narration, familiar, well-written characters, good continuity in the series all make this story enjoyable.
Yes, as a part of this mystery series but this is not the strongest of the stories.
Good narration, all voices; especially Roarke's Irish brogue.
Yes, it was short, too short.
The ending seemed rushed. Seems to me that the complex stories with long backstory and high suspense for the major characters should be drawn out more, not rushed.
Yes, because it keeps you interest thought out the book
Roak. So cool and sexy
Like I am really there
It's all good
I have read most of the "In Death" series but found this book repetitive. Eve puts herself in danger and get rescued yet again by her rich loving husband. Yet - in this book and many of the others, there is very little about her that would make me believe that a rich and beautiful guy would love her so much. Eve does very little (if anything) in this book or the other books that that proceed it, to convince me that she should be so deeply loved. And she is a real bitch.
Take Christmas as an example. The house is beautiful, there is a party with lots of friends, there are Christmas trees everywhere and plenty of gifts for her. Yet Eve takes no real time to be home and celebrate. After a while the whole not having time for husband and friends got really boring.
Make Eve eat more, rest more, be less grouchy and bitchy, and be a better wife. Why can't she wear pretty clothes more often and go to fun parties - even enjoy them when she gets there?
Susan is great to listen to. She does Peabody the best. Eve is a bit to abrupt and cruel sometimes in the way that she is portrayed.
I can see the series being made into a television series. It would take much more than a single movie to do justice to this series.
This book should have been either more developed or just added on to Holiday in Death. It is pretty short. I love the characters and hope the next book will be more engaging.
