    "Nice Follow Up"

    The best thing about this book is that it is actually a follow up to Holiday in Death. JD Robb continues the holiday season in this short book and uses the mystery plot to complete how Dallas and Roarke complete their first Christmas/New Year's holiday together. Dallas finishes her gift giving to friends and colleagues, which further develops the growing character of Dallas. This is definitely a quick read. I would encourage anyone new to the series to read Holiday in Death immediately before reading this one. Although Robb fills in the blanks in all of her books so that you can read them out of order, this book is more enjoyable after Holiday in Death.

    "Short but Great"

    This one was really short, but still had a great plot and scenes with the minor characters, especially Mira. I also love Roarke when he gets all protective, even though Eve is more than capable of handling herself! Somerset trying to be civil was also a part that made me chuckle.

    Another great listen!

    Story
    "Short and sweet, but plenty of punch!"

    Audible calls "Midnight in Death" number 7.5 in the In Death series, because it is a much shorter story (about one-third as long) than the full length books which are published every March and October. This story was published in a magazine in December 1998, two months after Holiday in Death appeared.

    The action in "Midnight " takes place immediately after the ending of "Holiday." Eve and Roark have been home from finishing the previous case just long enough to open Christmas presents and catch a few hours' sleep when she is called out again. A man who she tracked down and put away for life four years ago has escaped, and tortured and killed the judge who sentenced him. He leaves a message that he plans to kill all the people who put him away before the beginning of the new year. Besides the names of several lawyers, Dr. Mira and Eve are the last names to appear.

    As with all of the In Death series, there is plenty of action, abbreviated because of the shorter parameters of this story. But what I think is important in this story is Eve's realization, triggered by her knowledge that Mira is in mortal danger, of how important and dear to her Dr. Mira is. It is another step in Eve's progression toward becoming a fully caring and sensitive person.

    The only fault I found with this story is that the ending seemed rushed. Of course, I have the same problem with many shorter works. All in all, I heartily recommend this story.

    Story
    "Pretty good."

    At least Dallas isn't out of control and screaming all the time in this one! The story is well written and "complete" even though it is shorter than the other installments. Without revealing the mystery plot line, I can say it has been done before, but is done well here. I did figure out what was going on about 1/2 way through, but it was still enjoyable.

    I still think that the Roarke character is highly unrealistic and too, tooo, tooooo perfect. It makes it more like fantasy ... nice fantasy.. but impossible for any real man to compete with.

    The narrator, as usual, is excellent.

    Yes, I'd recommend the book.

    "Fabulous, engaging, humorous & satisfying"

    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!!

    "Another great story"
    Would you listen to Midnight in Death again? Why?

    Loved this one. Well detailed, with interesting characters, which is a bit unusual for a novella in the middle of an established series. The ending was a bit abrupt, but logical.

    Story
    "Silent Night or Midnight in Death"

    This is the first Novella or short story in the 'In Death' series. The story takes place right after the end of "Holiday in Death". Roarke and Eve are having their first Christmas together and a old friend from Dallas' past is back in the city for the holidays. His goal is to finish his work that Dallas stopped three years before and get revenge on the people that put him away. Plus a new goal of spending the end of the season with Dallas. For a short story this one is great. A little more of Dallas past comes out in this book, you learn about one of her old cases and how she was able to close it. The narration in this book is great just like the others in this series. Overall this is a good quick read and you wont be disappointed in the story.

    Story
    "Continuing the Addictive Experience"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    the plot keeps you on edge by slowly revealing little pieces of information that taken together lead to a satisfying resolution.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


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

    The build up of suspense in Midnight in Death is masterful!I found it very difficult to take a break from listening.


    Any additional comments?

    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
