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.

    "GOING BACK TO #4 AFTER LISTENING TO MOST RECENT"
    Would you listen to Rapture in Death again? Why?

    YES
    I WAS CONCERNED THAT I WOULD BE BORED. I HAVE LISTENED TO MOST OF THIS SERIES AND ALWAYS COME BACK TO IT. I HAVE EVEN LISTENED TO #33 THE MOST RECENT. I HAD MISSED THIS EARLIER VERSION. I WASN'T DISSAPPOINTED. YES THE CHARACTERS HAVE EVOLVED AND I AM AMAZED HOW THIS AUTHOR IS ABLE TO KEEP THEM EVOLVING AND THE MURDERS AREN'T THE REASON TO LISTEN BUT THE CHARACTERS. I STILL ENJOYED #4 AS IT JUST BROUGHT ME BACK IN TIME AND SHOWED THE RELATIONSHIPS EARLIER ON.
    I WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE THAT HAS NOT LISTENED TO THIS SERIES START WITH THE FIRST ONE AND GO STRAIGHT THROUGH NOT MISSING ANY. I CAN'T GIVE A NEGATIVE ABOUT ANY OF THE BOOKS.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    SHE DOES ALL THE VOICES WITH THE ENTIRE SERIES AND YOU INSTANTLY RECOGNIZE THEM. SHE NEVER CHANGES THE VOICES AND YOU KNOW WHO THE CHARACTERS ARE. THE VOICES AND INFLECTIONS ARE VERY GOOD FOR EACH CHARACTER.

    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.

    "Painless reading"

    I love Nora Roberts, but resisted reading her as J. D. Robb. I decided to try this summer and got the Audible version of the first in her "In Death" series. I absolutely love the books. I think the character of Eve is real enough. Although I realize that the character of Roarke is only a dream, I pretend that he really could exist. The narration is excellent, and the narrator is one of my favorites. I'm reading them in order.

    "Irresistible Series!"


    I've already said this series is addictive. Each time I finish one of the books, I tell myself to let it rest a while, make the whole experience last longer. But I can't resist -- I HAVE TO buy that next book in the series, and listen to it right away.

    Numbrer 4 in the series, Rapture In Death, begins during Dallas and Roarke's honeymoon, on an off-planet resort being built by one of Roarke's companies. Taking up right where Number 3 left off, there is a death, apparent suicide, of one of Roarke's contractors in the almost completed resort. Apparent suicide, except that the guy was smiling when he died.
    Back on earth, more suicides happen, each one with a smile.

    While investigating the suspicious suicides, Dallas begins to have some insights into what it means to love and be loved. She's still not real sure about how to express herself, to Roarke or herself. Mavis gets tangentially involved in connection with a big break in her singing career. Mavis and Leonardo grow more in love. Dallas tags Peobody to become a detective and her aide. So all around, slowly, Dallas is picking up little clues about how people relate on a non-cop level. It's interesting to watch.

    I love the inventiveness with which J.D. Robb describes the world of New York in 2058. Very ingenious. And I'll keep coming back for more to see those relationships grow, deepen, and flourish.

    "Keeps you wondering."
    Would you listen to Rapture in Death again? Why?

    Yes, very entertaining.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot and the different characters in the book.


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

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh some, but it also made me wonder if in years way down the road that we could be living like that or with things that are mentioned in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be going on to book 5 when I'm done listening to book 4.

    "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!

    "Really enjoying the series"

    I like getting to know the characters more and laughing and crying with them. The book is well written and Susan Ericksen does a great job with all of the characters.

    "Most intriguing"

    This was truly a good book. The pieces just seem to fall into place and you find yourself trying to solve the mystery or thinking to prompt Eve to think in a different way.

    Feels like Eve is over thinking her relationship and should just go with the flow = but then her relationship with Roarke wouldn't be what it is and again this is really why I am reading this- I need to see what happens.

    She and Summerset also have a great interaction - I love the way he is with her.

    "another good book"

    I had this series on tape and repurchased them because I couldn't find all the tapes. I thoroughly enjoy the Eve Dallas series. I listen to most of them over and over again. Susan Erickson is one of the best narrators out there. Nora Roberts shouldn't allow anyone else to do them. I love the way she change the voice for each person and has kept that voice through out most of the series. I can't seem to get enough of this series. Can't wait until February for the newest book; keep them coming

    "Wonderful"

    If you have 'read' the previous book in the series this is on parr. If not it might be worth checking out the earlier ones as the main characters - Lt. Eve Dallas, Roarke and Peabody - story lines continue and refer back. Otherwise the story is a stand alone with twists and turns enough to keep you interested to the end.
