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!
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..
You have to have a tolerance for formula if you're going to read many of the "In Death" books. I view them as brain candy, usually fun to listen to and then I can let them wash right out of my brain, so no memory units are taken up with them. This also means I can listen to the same book over & over as long as I leave some time between repeats.
This entry in the series has more focus on side characters than many of them, with Amy and especially Morris prominent. It's kind of a relief to move some of the focus from Eve; her quirks can turn into annoying obnoxiousess at times (i.e. in "Holiday in Death" she's just a total, intolerable bee-yatch).
I confess that I don't often like female narrators, but Susan Ericksen is outstanding. Her voice is wonderful, and her rendering of the various characters is excellent. Even her male characters sound believable, which is often a problem with women readers (Yes, many male readers stink at female voices, too, but somehow I have an easier time with a contralto 'female' than a soprano 'male'...so shoot me).
It is worst than any addiction know to man: I have to listen to case, the build up, making the murder board, the hit and miss and the threat. I just cannot seem to get enough of the stories JD comes of with. It is my major evening entertainment after a long day at work, caring for others, handling multiple client concerns, etc. it is what I do for me without having anything to do but figure out Eve Dallas's next move. Wow!
