Publisher's Summary

They died with smiles on their faces. Three apparent suicides: a brilliant engineer, an infamous lawyer, and a controversial politician. Three strangers with nothing in common - and no obvious reasons for killing themselves. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the deaths suspicious. And her instincts paid off when autopsies revealed small burns on the brains of the victims. Was it a genetic abnormality or a high-tech method of murder?

Eve's investigation turned to the provocative world of virtual reality games - where the same techniques used to create joy and desire could also prompt the mind to become the weapon of its own destruction.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "Loving this series"

    Although I guessed who was the antagonist early on, I thoroughly enjoyed the climax. The story is smooth and the presentation is great. Each character is discernible. Can't wait to download the next one.

    "Does it all"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rapture in Death to be better than the print version?

    I have no interest in the print version. Not when Susan Ericksen is the narrator


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Most definitely! I was prompted to do this review because in the midst of the entire plot J.D. gave us a glance into the most cheerful debate of Nature vs Nurture while putting invaluable detail into the characters of Riana and Dr Mira.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I must confess I am not finished with this volume but I must say this Nature vs Nature plug had me pleasantly surprised


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely!

    "Great Series"
    Would you listen to Rapture in Death again? Why?

    Yes. Makes for perfect light listening. Good stories.. timeless


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rapture in Death?

    The scene on the ledge. I really thought Dallas was going to save her. I was stunned.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    In this scene, Peabody has a cup of "real" coffee for the first time!! I am a coffee lover so the prospect of a future world without coffee is quite dreary.

    "Not J.D. Robb's best but good narration"
    What did you like best about Rapture in Death? What did you like least?

    I love the In Death series and own all of the books but have only recently started listening to the audio books. Susan Ericksen does a great job with the narration - much better than I expected.


    Would you be willing to try another book from J. D. Robb? Why or why not?

    I intend to purchase more of the In Death audio books. I've enjoyed this one enough to warrant purchasing another one.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the third In Death book I've listened to but the first "early" book of the series. The later books seem to be much more consistent with character voices. I think Ms. Ericksen was still trying to find what worked while narrating the early books. Doesn't make them any less enjoyable though.


    Do you think Rapture in Death needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It has a follow up book.....or somewhere around 30 follow ups.


    Any additional comments?

    I waited a while to try my first In Death audio books. I feel as though I know these characters very well after reading them through 35+ books. I was afraid I'd hear the narrator's version of a particular character and just HATE it. It didn't happen. I think she made Peabody just a little stuffier than I would have liked but I have no issue with any of the characterizations that Ms. Ericksen uses in her narration. Have really enjoyed what I've heard so far.

    "Eh"
    What did you like best about Rapture in Death? What did you like least?

    It was a little contrived at times with the brain tissue issues. Interesting concept with the virtual reality but contrived.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rapture in Death?

    Eve trying to prevent the woman from jumping off the building.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Honestly, the romance stuff with Roarke and Dallas sometimes gets in the way of the mystery.

    "The Narrator gave the Characters real personality!"

    I was two thirds through Immortal in Death as a hard copy when I saw this title in Audible.
    In spite of having the difficulty of reading a title in the middle of a series, I was sufficiently hooked to order the Audible version of Book 4.
    This turned out to be a real bonus largely due to Susan Ericksen's interpretation of the book's Characters.
    The Irish brogue of Roarke & the very amusing accent chosen for Peabody, gave the book more appeal & made for easier listening.
    Maybe if I had started at book 1, I may have had a better understanding but book 3 was given to me and I dutifully pitched in and read it!
    I realise now that I had very little understanding of the characters or the era in which the books are set.
    I would advise any potential readers/listeners to probably start at the beginning!!

    "Love this series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes and I have! This series never gets boring, I love how the book keeps you in suspense but gives you a little hint of who the killer is.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rapture in Death?

    When Eve discovered the killer and the way she handled herself as she discovered it. She is so calm and cool and she knows how to handle every situation.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    I love Rorke he is awesome and sexy!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When she ran to Rorke at the end thinking he was dead! I cried!

    "Excellent Narrator!"

    Reason for reading it: I am totally addicted to this series and quite frankly, I adore Eve. I love her bad-ass attitude and how she never gives up until she has the right answer. Roarke is still as hot as ever and they are certainly getting their marriage off to a smokin' start! The narrator, Susan Ericksen, absolutely makes this so enjoyable!!
