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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Predictable story and forced romance subplot"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    No.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Daughter of Shadow and Bone by Laini Taylor and Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione.


    What three words best describe Susan Ericksen’s performance?

    Decent performance - not exceptional, but not awful.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The performance would lead me to rate it a 2.5 rather than just a 2 overall.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt that the references to sexual violence were gratuitous and the plot was predictable (I guessed the killer(s) the first time they appeared). The romance between the female cop lead and the controlling rich playboy (who was actually a suspect for the first crimes) was the worst part of the story for me. Completely implausible and forced. If I'd been Eve Dallas, I would have punched him or at the very least told him off when he made his first advances. The author didn't seem to know her own character. I won't be reading any more of the 30+ books in the series. :(

    I'm totally addicted to audio books! I listen when my eyes get too tired to read and when I am driving or just don't want to sit and read!

    Story
    "Didn't do a thing for me"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    I doubt that I will try the author again, I just couldn't get interested in it.


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

    I don't think this is a genre for me, so yes.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

    I didn't have a problem with the narration, so I am willing to try one of hers again.


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

    Just disappointment...not my interest really.


    Any additional comments?

    I should have read more reviews before buying. I think this was a special deal and that's why I gave it a shot.

    Story
    "Still great every time!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is such a great introduction to an excellent series of novels. I love the way that JD Robb develops the characters in a way that they are real people. You start to feel like you know these characters and can anticipate their thoughts and actions because you become part of the story yourself. What joy to lose yourself in the series!


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

    I love Mavis. She's one of my favorite characters - and though she never has as big of a role in the books as I would like - the role she plays is memorable each time - and Susan Ericksen brings her to life!

    This was my first in the JD Robb "In Death" series and I quite enjoyed it. The mystery was compelling and the relationship between the oft praised Eve and Rourke did not disappoint. I'm looking forward to more in the series.

    Story
    "Nora Roberts at her best with a new twist."
    Would you listen to Naked in Death again? Why?

    I would listen to Naked in Death again. It is very entertaining and fun to read. Lots of humor with a touch of sarcasm.


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

    The plot had good suspense but is somewhat graphic.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I tried to read the book years ago but just could not get into it. Susan brings the characters to life and highlights the edgy humor.

    "Addictive listen"

    This series is just great and I find them quite additive. I think the trick is that the characters are likeable and developing with every book. I'm still attempting to work out who the killer is and love it when I don't get it until I'm told.

    The narrator makes the characters come to live and her accents are brilliant particularly the Irish...
