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.

    "Meet Eve Dallas"
    What did you love best about Naked in Death?

    I liked the world the author created in the future where gun shot wounds are foreign to them.


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

    The plot kept me interested in seeing if I was right about who the villian was.


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

    I haven't heard other books she has done.


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

    No extreme reactions, but it is possible since the subject matter is kind of upsetting.

    "Get hooked!"
    Would you listen to Naked in Death again? Why?

    This book is the first in the long series. I have listened at least once a year. This is just plain good writing. Roake is just as sexy as a guy can get.


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

    Many...but it starts with the coffee and a gold foil bag of it.


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

    Her rich voice is just so great. She make "Lt" come to life. Her Irish voice had me buying any story that show cased that brogue.


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

    ending " Roake says I don't thing....I know I...."


    Any additional comments?

    If you start this series, you will get hooked on the first 10 books without a doubt. Get started.

    I am a disabled vet who is currently going blind. So I have been preparing for it by buying audio books, since I cannot even read a book anymore which WAS my life.

    I would suggest this book to everyone. Ms Robb did an excellent job on the subject and content. The narrator is excellent for Ms Robb's works

    "Well Done!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Naked in Death to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, but Susan Erickson does such a great job with the narration that it felt like I was reading the print edition.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the way the love story is easily mixed with the mystery. Neither over shadows the other.


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

    Roarke. She does a great job with an irish accent.


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

    Yes! Unfortunately life did not allow that. I want to buy the whole series based on this one book. Since it was written in 1995, I have a lot of books to catch up on.

    "Great Start to a Wonderful Series!"
    Where does Naked in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I started listening to this series around Book 20. I had no idea how far back the series went. After the 5 books I bought all at once, I had to start from the beginning. WOW! This was the perfect beginning to a (hopefully) very, very long line of stories. I'm at # 8 now and can't stop listening to Susan Erickson's wonderful voices. Thank you "J.D.Robb" for these wonderful books!

    Story
    "A Different Kind of police drama"
    What made the experience of listening to Naked in Death the most enjoyable?

    The author wrote the characters and their interaction with each other in such a way that I felt invested in their story. The story was very different from other police stories/contemporary action books I have read in the past. It kept me riveted to the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character, Eve, was the most interesting character to me. She was complex, interesting.


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

    It is nice to here the character's voices with the book. I especially liked the way she did Roarke, the Irish brough was very nice.


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

    Eve is a cop with a troubled past, three gruesome murders to solve on a deadline...and an international man of mystery her. Eve's having a busy week.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    Story
    "Torture to Finish"

    For several years someone told me I should check out this author's books. She said that every woman she recommended them to fell in love with the series. This depresses me. This book was absolutely crap and is just an alternate version of a bodice-ripper. The difference is that the main character is a stock hard practical female cop. Unless you're looking for girly smut (ie woman taken against her will but ends up loving it), don't bother to read this. The writing isn't very good and the story line is totally predictable.
