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.

    "Amazingly Good!"
    Would you listen to Naked in Death again? Why?

    The descriptions of each character and the slightly futuristic world are really good. Usually an author paints a picture of what is in front of you but here the author paints the periphery as well.


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

    She is such a good narrator that I had to stop and look up here info. Each character is unique and easily identified by nothing but her voice.

    First of a great series and in each book the characters grow and you get to know them better.

    It has a good foundation and interesting visuals of what would be fun to happen in the future.

    She has a clear voice and speaks with a good steady speed that makes it easy with which to listen.

    I don't remember any extreme reactions but I have listened to this book several times over the years.

    "Enthralling intro to a really good series"
    Would you listen to Naked in Death again? Why?

    I'm just beginning my foray into audible books, so I'm not sure I would listen to a book more than once. That said, I frequently re-read books and had actually read this book when it first came out, so I might re-listen!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have to say Eve was my favorite, but Mavis definitely captured my attention with her outlandishness and her support for Eve.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the reader did a masterful job of reading this - giving just enough difference between the voices of the characters so I wasn't confused as to who was actually speaking in the conversations.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Doyle was my favorite character, enjoyed his swagger and his tenderness at the same time. Great read.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job. Like her use of of the Irish brogue. Good clear read.

    Story
    "This one started it all!!"
    Would you listen to Naked in Death again? Why?

    Going back and listening to this first Eve Dallas story is like revisiting history. It's all about the history of the relationships of the main characters. It flows beautifully and is so strong a foundation to build from that visiting the book again is like reminising about your own past.


    What other book might you compare Naked in Death to and why?

    I compare it to Cheasapeak Blue, which is the final book in Nora Roberts Cheasapeak Bay novels, it has all the history of each of the brothers, and the wonderful story of Seth.


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

    Susan Ericksen's talents in the field of narrator are without equal as far as I am concerned! She manages to capture each voice in a unique and beautifully nuanced way, so that the listener is certain who is speaking, without minimizing the whole story. She is an absolute jewel in this field!


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

    Don't miss the creation of a legend!!


    Any additional comments?

    I have read every book in the series so far and not been disappointed once. The characters grow with each new adventure. They are full and fleshed out and you can almost know by now what their reaction will be to any given circumstance...you know them that well!!

    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    Story
    "Going back to the beginning"

    When I finished "Celebrity in Death" I didn't know what to read. I decided to go back and read the books that I hadn't read yet. I started with book 1.

    It is so interesting when you are so invested in the characters of a series, knowing their voices and nuances that it only takes a sound to know who is coming next.

    Here we are in book 1 and everyone's voice is different. The characters are not yet fully developed and you are not sure about how this experiment will work out. I am finding it very interesting to hear the characters develop and meet each new one as the come into the story. I love it!

    "Really didn't like the performance"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I love the books, they're great - interesting, slightly different world from ours, great characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them - even the murder victims - they are all interesting and different. It's fun to go back and see where it all began (after - what? - 34 books?)..


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Ericksen?

    Anyone but her. I've bought a lot of audio books (both fiction and non fiction) and even when others have said they didn't like the performance I've never had a problem with it. But this one - I didn't like it from the start. I didn't believe the accents - didn't think Roarke should have such a strong accent, but even if he did, just didn't like her voice. It almost ruined one of my favourite series. Such a disappointment.
