Publisher's Summary

Amaryllis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but she's been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she's taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn't just "one of us."

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.

    "Love/Hate!"

    I have mixed feelings about this one. I love Morris and so it sucked to hear what he was going through. It was nice to have him as a larger part in the book. The story was entertaining. Susan Ericksen did a nice job as narrator.

    "Good book, terrible narrator"

    I absolutely can't stand this narrator. It ruins the book. ESPECIALLY her voice for Peabody. It's so annoying it's hard to focus on the story.

    "You get TWO excellent deals here!!"

    I'm such a fan of Nora/JD Robb ~~ and even though I'd read up to the last few books, I thought I'd try them on Audio on Kindle. Wow!! Best decision EVER ~~ if anything, I've enjoyed them MORE listening to Susan Ericksen narrate stories I love. I've actually bought the entire series in Audio now, and am anxiously awaiting the next!!
    I have to say that you could hear her learning her characters, and there were a few books I was dissapointed in that she used LESS of her characterization ~~ but as a whole? She just keeps getting better at it ~ and she's already excellent!!
    And as far as the story? I'm never dissapointed in an In Death title, but this one was particularly good ~~ it's always more intense when there is a cop killing for Dallas to solve!

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "as expected"

    If you've read a couple of these, then you know the formula. It is typical of the series; it's a fun diversion for light reading. Robb(erts) does a decent job of having the characters learn things about each other and change over the series.

    "Perfect Narrator, Great Book!!"

    Excellent Story line. I loved this book. I've listened to this whole series and Susan Erickson is the best narrator I've ever listened to. She has each character nailed perfectly. All you have to do is listen and you know which character she is portraying. I love this series and hope there's a lot more to come.

    "Banal"

    Was fast forwarding halfway through: disjunct and shallow; painful narration at times; gratuitous.

    "booooring"

    If you enjoy listening to a pretentious, pompous woman yack on and on about her wealth and possessions while solving crime with the help of her multi-millionaire husband, then this is the book for you. The last straw was during the bridal shower that others put together for our heroine host and the ensuing discussion of describing male mates as types of animals and discussing how many times they performed in a night. Utterly tasteless.
    I will not be renting anymore Eve books.

    "So stupid"

    I guess it's my fault for not realizing that this was actually written by Nora Roberts. It is a romance novel, thinly disguised as a murder mystery. I've never read a mystery that has so little action and so much talking talking talking. The fact that it's set in some undisclosed future time and has technology we don't have and uses slang that doesn't yet exist may have been done to be clever, but I found it just annoying. The characters were two-dimensional. The main character's husband was the most clever, handsome, and rich guy ever ... and yes, he was totally devoted to his wife and always there when she needed him. Give me a break! My advice -- unless you've read this author before and like her, don't bother to read this book.
