New York to Dallas: In Death, Book 33 | [J. D. Robb]

New York to Dallas: In Death, Book 33

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "A bit slow and redundant."

    I have read or listened to all of the stories in the "In Death" series. Aside from a few that were a bit too dark for my taste, I have enjoyed them all. "New York to Dallas," was a decent story, but it was a bit slow and had too many flashbacks. In short, it was borderline redundant. If it becomes necessary for an author to update new readers on the past actions and events which affect the story line, a brief bio of the persons involved, at the beginning, should be enough. Going over the same material again and again in each new edition, for the sake of new readers, makes the storyline drag and become boring.

    It was a decent addition to the series, but it could have been better. The narration was, as always, superior.

    "Nice try, but no cigar!"

    I love Eve Dallas. However, the author has tried too hard to connect coincidences in this book. I don't want to spoil the book for others, however the HUGE coincidence that happens really ruined this book for me. I also do not like that Eve always seems to have to have a personal fist fight or some kind of physical fight with every protagonist that she faces. It is enough for me that she is smart, unaffected and fresh. I do not need her to personally bash in the faces of the bad guys. So this book was OK but I think it would have been better if the author had not felt the need to include coincidences that are so unlikely and unnecessary to the story.

    Story
    "Implausible tale, overuse of "Irish" accent"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Nothing ... the story line was barely entertaining, there was too much emotive dialogue and angst, and the narration - especially the "Irish" accent - was only tolerable.


    What could J. D. Robb have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Draft a better story line, eliminate about a third of the angst (yea, Eve Dallas had a tough childhood, but the story obsessed over it so much that her qualifications as a detective were seriously questionable.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Stay in character ... there were times when Eve Dallas spoke in an Irish accent when the narrator had to switch between her and Roark.


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

    Fatigue.

    "Eve Dallas is the best!"

    This listen will tell you a lot about Eve's horrific past and how strong she is to overcome it. Of course Rourke is there beside her. The case is about an escaped hideous pedophile. Susan Erickson owns Eve Dallas and all the other characters, it wouldn't be the same without her.

    "Too long"

    The "In Death" series has been one of my favorites by Nora Roberts, but this one repeated the plot premise over and over again - and almost pounded it to death. I am aware, as are most people, of the devastating consequences of sexual abuse of young children and teens.
    This novel repeated that lesson ad infinitum from the perspective of the protagonist and most of the other characters in the novel.
    This lesson is one that the public needs to know. I suggest Ms. Roberts use other venues to emphasize her point.

    Story
    "like a soap opera"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    no


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Robert Wilson


    How could the performance have been better?

    Perhaps a man narrating


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

    anger and disappointment. I wish that I had not kept reading and had moved on to something better. There are too many books out there to listen to this kind of melodrama and soap opera plot

    "this is seriously poorly written"

    i have listened to 457 books to date; this is one of three I could not get through. I am just shocked that so many people gave it good reviews. I suppose if you do not mind high school level writing, it may appeal to you. The author cannot help but just continuously beat you over the head with bad writing and cannot let the story define the characters. The story itself is ok and the narration is not that bad. I would highly suggest staying away from this one.

    "Disappointed"

    The narrator gets in the way of the story. Her performance is far too strident for me.

    "Didn't sound like Eve"

    The woman who read it didn't sound like a Eve Dallas. The book is good. The endings are all beginning to sound a little alike.
