Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Lots of Hormones Held Together with a Weak Plot"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A stronger plot that wasn't so easy to dissect, removing the hormonal passages that didn't move the story forward


    Has Naked in Death turned you off from other books in this genre?

    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.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Susan Ericksen?

    Yes. The narration was very good, though it exhibited some examples of sloppy editing.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. My girlfriend is big on the series, so I had been hoping for some good mystery that we could enjoy together.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "I'm so glad to have found this series!"
    Where does Naked in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.)


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    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.


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

    The childhood traumas of both Eve and Rourke are written with great empathy, and deepen with each additional book.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "I'm hooked!"
    What made the experience of listening to Naked in Death the most enjoyable?

    The story is good but the Susan Ericksen's performance makes it great!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are really well developed. I couldn't wait for the next book, and 3rd and 4th!


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

    Lt. Dallas, of course. I love her character.

    Story
    "Great thriller with a distracting romance tied in"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The romance seems forced and tends to carry on too long.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Book 2, the thrilling part of the book has convinced me to give it another chance.


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

    This is my first, she was great.

    "Surprised"

    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.

    "Good Series"

    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.

    "As good as reading the book!"
    What made the experience of listening to Naked in Death the most enjoyable?

    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 ;-)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Naked in Death?

    This was already one of my favorite books, it's just nice to be able to rest my eyes and still "read" it .


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    Loved her voices - she gave each character their own flair, but didn't go overboard. Nicely done!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    By-the-book homicide lieutenant falls for mega-billionaire suspect when he gives her coffee!


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this book!

    "Best Series I've ever listened to,"

    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.
