It was one of Eve Dallas’s earliest takedowns, back in her uniform days. A monster named Isaac McQueen had been abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. Thanks to Eve, he wound up where he belonged, removed from civilized society in Rikers. But he’s not behind bars anymore.
After his escape, McQueen has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, preying on the young and innocent - when necessary, with the help of a female partner all too willing to be manipulated and to aid and abet his crimes. His other goal: to get revenge on the woman who stopped him all those years ago, now a high-profile lieutenant in the NYPSD and married to one of the city’s richest men.
Commanding Eve’s attention with a chilling and brazen crime, McQueen sets off the chase - forcing Eve down a road marked with blood and tears, a road that eventually leads southwest to Dallas, Texas, the home Eve fled long ago. And each new twist brings her closer to the harrowing memory of when she wasn’t a hardened detective but a vulnerable girl just like McQueen’s innocent prey. As her husband, Roarke, tries to rescue her from the nightmares that claw at her mind, and her partner, Peabody, doggedly works to support her, Eve must confront - and call upon - the darkest parts of her own soul in order to survive.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

It is getting harder to find a new adventure for these two but I liked it because they work together and work things out. It is nice to see a stable relationship when most of what is in books, movies and on TV is about people not making a relationship work.
This one picks up where Treachery in Death left off. Eve deals with the past in the latest Eve Dallas story. She chases an escaped prisoner from her early cop days. And her childhood memories return with a vengeance. Her relationship with husband Roarke is stronger than ever as they both deal with her past. Susan Ericksen is fantastic as usual.
I fear that the end is coming very soon to the in Death series
This is the first main book without the word "death" in the title. That is because this book is not only about death, but more about the birth and the road to salvation of the present day Eve Dallas whom we come to love so much
Most of the book takes place in Dallas, so we don't get to read much about her regular crew except Dr.Mira. But because Eve is what she is now, we feel the their presence with her. We know she can survive because of them. There is a touching scene with Galahad that almost made me cry.
This book is a MUST for fans
Once again JD Robb has done it. Kept me totally involved and focused on the story and as always waiting impatiently for the next one. Just can't wait. Susan Ericksen I love you. Thank you
J.D.Robb and Susan Ericksen, oh my !! These two talents are just the alt, I mean they are frigid!! Ok, now that I got that out of my system LOL, I just can't say enough about the In Death series. I mean 33 books and still fresh, intriging, not one character has gotten boring. Each one stays themselves but also evolves as time goes by. No one and I mean NO ONE could have pulled off each and every character in this series as well as Susan Ericksen. That is not to say I don't love and enjoy other narrators but for this Susan you are ice. Again, Robb and Ericksen you are great and great together PLEASE keep up the good work.
I LOVE audible books! I'm visually impaired, and was hesitant to download books initially, but some 700 books later, I think I'm over it!
Fast paced, thrilling, story telling at it's best! J. D. Robb has done it again! This story answers some questions, while raising others. Can't wait for the next installment in Eve's story!
I have been a J.D. Robb fan for too many years to count, but this book is one of the best in the series. The way that Eve is forced to deal with so many things from her past all in one case is riveting. I couldn't put it down from page one. Susan Ericksen is one of my favorite narrators and she did a great job on this one.
The main protagonist was completely unlikable. The futuristic elements were dumb (
Between the Jimmy Durante voice and the Rocky & Bullwinkle voice, the narrator seemed to struggle to find a genuine interpretation of normal speech patterns. There is gratuitous use of the f-bomb and the narrator seemed to be screeching most the time.
No- I enjoy a good detective novel but this was one of the worst I've endured. I only finished it because I listened to it in my car with absolutely nothing else to do. I think I would have been better off listening to polka music on the radio.
I'm an avid reader since childhood. I'm a retired science teacher, retired nuclear plant worker and grandmother of three. I love mysteries.
I have and like all the 'In Death" books but I hate the places where she always goes back to the childhood rape and abuse. This is the worst one as it continually drums at it. I like the backstory that explains how she came to be but once you've heard it you don't need it a long repeat of it in every single edition. Also, I'm not a prude but I don't need a long drawn out description of the sex. I like the mysteries better than the soft porn...
"Riveting story again"
As with all of this series, another story that does not disappoint with the perfect narrator. I love these books.
"New York to Dallas by JD Robb"
I have read every "In Death"book by JD Robb (33 books now on the train). This is the first Audio book in the Eve Dallas series that I've listened too and thought that it was brilliant. Looking forward to Celebrity in Death next year. Not long to wait......
This is a great book but read it only if you have read the rest or it won't have the same impact. For people who have read or listened to the whole series, this is a very emotional book. I hate to see Eve struggle so much but it's very sweet the way Roark is with her. I just adore them both and all the characters too. J.D.Robb is absolute genius at writing characters that you can care about so much. I have no idea what I will do when I finish this series. I'm getting worried to be honest.
