Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

A stronger plot that wasn't so easy to dissect, removing the hormonal passages that didn't move the story forward
If the genre were steamingly meaningless sex, I was never onto it in the first place. If the genre is mystery thrillers, the book is a very poor example.
Yes. The narration was very good, though it exhibited some examples of sloppy editing.
Disappointment. My girlfriend is big on the series, so I had been hoping for some good mystery that we could enjoy together.
If what you're looking for is a lot of meaningless sex, I suppose this book is as good as any. I can't imagine women being attracted to books where an aggressive, domineering male who refuses to take no for an answer is just what the female lead has wanted, but then again, I'm not a woman.
Right up there with my favorites. Only other series that I've enjoyed so much is the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. (If you read those, be sure to select the UNABRIDGED.)
This book and the 38 more to come have it all - great plot, deep character development, love story, flashes of humor, and nice spicy touches of romance. After listening to the first one, I bought all 38 more. (Serendipitously, most of them were on sale at the time. YEAH!) Have raced thru 9 already and they are all GREAT. Have to slow down and listen to something else so I can make the other 29 last.
Great voicing for so many different characters. Her inflections and interpretation of the nuances of the text are PERFECT! I'm going to search for more books narrated by her.
The childhood traumas of both Eve and Rourke are written with great empathy, and deepen with each additional book.
I've never written a review before. J had to take a minute from my crazy schedule to let folks know that you'll love these books!
The story is good but the Susan Ericksen's performance makes it great!
The characters are really well developed. I couldn't wait for the next book, and 3rd and 4th!
Lt. Dallas, of course. I love her character.
The romance seems forced and tends to carry on too long.
Book 2, the thrilling part of the book has convinced me to give it another chance.
This is my first, she was great.
I don't generally read or like future type books. I enjoyed this and am looking forward to the rest of the series. Great to have a book that there is a strong female with a great man supporting her and loving her becuse she is a strong woman.
At first I hesitated reading this series, because there are so many, but I'm glad I took a chance. I like the strong heroine, Eve Dallas & Roarke. The narrator was good also. I recommend this series.
I am a college professor and professional actor, director and playwright. The peformance of the book is as important to me as the writing.
Sorry this kind of book is not for me. Too pat and predictable. Left me bored.
no both good, i have read many time and listen many time
when eve almost got fired because she fell in love with Roarke
I do like these better when guy is guy voice and woman is woman voice
I absolutely LOVE the entire In Death series, and since this book started it all, I thought I'd take a chance and listen to it while at a dental appointment. The time actually flew by - I wanted to ask the dentist if I could just stay there and keep listening to my book ;-)
This was already one of my favorite books, it's just nice to be able to rest my eyes and still "read" it .
Loved her voices - she gave each character their own flair, but didn't go overboard. Nicely done!
By-the-book homicide lieutenant falls for mega-billionaire suspect when he gives her coffee!
Highly recommend this book!
Please note: I'm listening to Celebrity in Death as I write this. This is the best series I've ever listened to. I highly suggest you start with Naked in Death and listen/read in order. I'm incredibly impressed with the story and it's character progression. The story has great continuity and the peripheral characters are just as interesting as Eve. I highly recommend this series.
