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.

    "The book that got me hooked on J.D. Robb!"
    What made the experience of listening to Naked in Death the most enjoyable?

    I have all of the In-Death Books. I own most of the latest books on audio CDs. So when I saw the first book on audio in your collection- I had to have it. I already knew Susan Ericksen had the characters down pat. I just needed to hear if she was a little different with the first story. She was Super just as I had come to expect. So listening to the first In-Death book was a pure joy!


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

    The In-Death books by J.D. Robb are in a class by themselves.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She does a great job giving voice to Eve Dallas and really makes Roarke sound so fine.


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

    Yes,it was! And I almost did just that.


    Any additional comments?

    Will try to add all of the earlier books to my library.

    "Enjoyable series and well narrated"
    Where does Naked in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Probably just below the dresden series which is my #1 favorite audioseries so far.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well of course Roarke is my favorite. Who doesn't live Mr. Perfect


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    I like her overall tone. She does an excellent job as Eve Dallas. My only criticism is that the pace was a bit too slow. I am definitely guilty of using the 1.5 speed option on my iphone just to keep the book moving along.


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

    I had some laugh out loud moments. But given that I had already read this book I did not go through any extremes. This was just an enjoyable listen to a novel I had read long ago while I did chores around the house.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this audiobook. I will probably download others in the series.

    "Interesting and Enjoyable"

    Firstly, one of the most interesting things about this novel was its futuristic aspect. I think it was originally published in 1995. And Nora Roberts was trying to imagine a world in 2058. So, even though the book is futuristic, some of the things in the novel will actually seem a bit dated. For instance, she makes several references to computer discs...something many of us rarely use nowadays.

    But, like all of Nora Roberts books, the writing is superb and the characters are multi-faceted. That said, be forewarned that Roberts is stepping a bit outside of her box here and writing a suspense novel. So, the story is far more graphic and violent than you'd see when she writes under her own name. Also, while selling this series as suspense was a wildly successful attempt, she is still true to her roots in a lot of ways. So, be prepared for some steamy love scenes.

    "Not Bad, Interesting Mix of Genres"
    Any additional comments?

    An interesting mix of light police / crime, scifi and romance. Some of the characters are fun - I especially like Feeney - and the police procedure and laws in the future are interesting. The effect used for the computer voice, which is fairly infrequent, worked well for me.Something that stands out for me throughout the series is that the narrator reads Roarke with a fairly strong Irish accent, even as she repeatedly reads that he has only the faint hint of one. When the story tells us that his accent becomes more pronounced, it stays pretty much the same since it's already pretty pronounced.In my opinion, this is a solid 3 1/2 star audio book. It delivers exactly what is expected, and if you're not looking for depth, this - and some of the sequels - are worth a listen.

    "Good Listen, Mystery, Romance Etc."
    Where does Naked in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    On a rating 1 to 10. It would be a 7to 8. Most the books I have listened to have been 9 or 10s. Only a few have been 1 or 2. 3 1/2 to 4 stars.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the unwise romance and the story twists.


    What three words best describe Susan Ericksen’s performance?

    Diverse characterization.


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

    When Rorke says he loves her and accepts her lack of refinement.


    Any additional comments?

    I would try another of her books. Interesting all the way through.

    "Great series opener"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Naked in Death to be better than the print version?

    I liked the audio version as much as the print version. The reader is great, very nice voice and inflection.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Favourite character - Eve Dallas


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

    Yes and no - it's too long for a single listen but it would be enjoyable to listen that way.
