Publisher's Summary

When a high-society party is crashed by a naked, knife-wielding, blood-covered man who "thinks" he might have killed someone, Eve Dallas must track down the crime, and the criminals. Everything points to Satanic ritual, but Eve doesn't believe in devil worship.

    "Fan of the series, but not this book!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    There really wasn't much of a plot to this book. It was straight down the line a murder, interviews and arrests. There were no character sub-plots or twists in the story. An overall disappointment to a normally captivating series.


    Would you recommend Ritual In Death to your friends? Why or why not?

    You can safely skip this book and continue on in the In Death series. There are no character insights or overall storyline developments.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really.

    I am a fan of the series. However, the shorts are not the ones I like the best......

    Story
    "Staying true to format..."

    I love this series, don't get me wrong...

    But, like all of these little "half" books interjected into the series, this one is short, and revolves around... shall we say? The supernatural? We've had witches, ghosts, vampires... And now satanists. Peabody gets wigged, Dallas stays cynnical, Roarke flutters somewhere in between, and it all gets wrapped up in a pretty little bow in less than 3 hours.

    I didn't give anything away that anyone who has read some 30 of these novels couldn't have guessed at. :) The story is still yours to enjoy!

    "Fantastic listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ritual In Death to be better than the print version?

    Just as enjoyable


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I adore the character of Roarke. The way he loves and deals with Eve is so amazing.


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

    Just this series. So glad she is the narrator of them. Love the voices of all the characters. She does a wonderful performance.

    I did not learn to read until I was in my twenties. Have not stopped since. The two most important things to learn are reading & chess.

    Story
    "Bad News Good News"

    The bad news, I purchased this audio during a special that was offered for $2.99. I finally stopped listening half way through the 5th chapter. The story was dragging. All of the characters are superficial and not believable. The narrative was so annoying I had to stop.

    The accent for Roarke is irritating. The authors writing and Erickson narration of Peabody made her sound like she has an IQ below room temperature.

    The good news, I learned what not to buy in the future and it only cost me $2.99

    "It didn't suck"

    This is why I'm not a huge fan of the short stories. I think the premise of this book would've made a great full length book. In short from it's not as smooth.

    "excellent- just as expected"

    I love this in death series and Susan Ericksen does them best She has the personalities down so well I wish I could meet the people, they seem so real- My husband was laughing at me because he saw me mowing the lawn, and smiling and laughing while listening through the ear phones. I wish Nora Roberts wrote faster, I'm always running out of books.

    "Not worth the money or the time"
    What disappointed you about Ritual In Death?

    I was extremely disappointed in the narration of this story and very honestly am not sure if that's what kept me from listening to the entire book or not.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something by Catherine Coulter, J A Jance, James Patterson, James Doss or Michael McGarrity.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

    No.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ritual In Death?

    The narrator made the main character totally unlikeable
