(P)2008 Brilliance Audio, Inc.
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.
You can safely skip this book and continue on in the In Death series. There are no character insights or overall storyline developments.

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!
Just as enjoyable
I adore the character of Roarke. The way he loves and deals with Eve is so amazing.
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.
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
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.
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.
A good book -holds your interest and I recommend it.
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.
Something by Catherine Coulter, J A Jance, James Patterson, James Doss or Michael McGarrity.
The narrator made the main character totally unlikeable
J.D.Robb has done a great job as usual.
The characters come to life and the story is good.
