Dallas's friend, Chief Medical Examiner Morris, had started a serious relationship with Coltraine, and from all accounts the two were headed for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that. After breaking the news to Morris, Eve starts questioning everyone, including Coltraine's squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve's husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on the dead woman's life back in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this case and their own painful, shadowy pasts.
The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve, containing Coltraine's guns, badge, and a note from her killer: "You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, I'll be sending yours to somebody else." But Eve Dallas doesn't take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that's a promise.

I love all of the In Death. I loved this one also. The one thing I didn't like was Peabody's voice. I don't remember her voice sounding like this from other books I have listened to. Other than that I really liked the book.
Robb has another great hit with Dallas and all her crew. She has everyone in this book and we get to peek into their lives. the murder story is a good one and Dallas saves the day again
a good series.
Listen from the beginning and learn about everyone
I have been a Nora Roberts fan since she first came on the scene writing for series romances (oh, so many year ago!). When she started writing her "in death" series I was hooked. Haven't missed a one and since they became available on audio my father-in-law has also become a fan. Listening to Susan Ericksen is a joy and a pleasure, her idividual voices bring the story to life. I hope she continues to narrate the J.D. Robb series because she is the best I have ever heard. Thank you!
This was a good story line that brought more of ME Morris to the surface. I think I would have liked more about a life outside of the morgue for him though. Now the "dead" Doctor is dead inside, appropriate but sad. On the other hand, this showed more dynamics for all of the characters relating more with Eve and Roark.
As always the narration is on point. If you've read/listened to each book up until now, these characters are practically family. And this story brings death a little too close to home. You just want to reach in and hug & comfort them!
Susan Erickson is the best!! this is my favorite series and it's not half as good with any other narrator. love the story love the characters! they are always entertaining.
I love the in death series and this one was no exception it had me laughing out loud as Eve trruggled with her fears regarding social events and the bridal shower and tearing up over the death of a fellow cop
Audible, this is 2 books in a row with narrated voices that were really bad! There has got to be better choices out there or get an actual man to read the male parts! Gee its not too much to ask is it??? I think I will go back to just reading the series, I cannot keep listening to this narrator, she is making these characters sound close to 50 and her new York accent, yikes..
"My favourite so far"
This was my favourite book in the series so far. I know that I have said that a couple of times as the series has gone on but this time WOW. A cop is killed Eve and Peabody are sent to investigate. They have to investigate her squad which doesn't go down well but Eve just keeps plodding on ignoring all the BS which comes her way. On the lighter side there is the party at Eve's for the bride to be.
Iam a huge fan of J D Robb books she never lets you down.Ifor one cant get enough of Eve all characters are great in fact they are now part of my family.last word the Narrator is very good.
