Publisher's Summary

In the year 2060, sophisticated investigative tools can help catch a killer. But there are some questions even the most advanced technologies cannot answer...
Harlan Coben says, "J.D. Robb's In Death novels are can't-miss pleasures." Her latest is no exception, as the priest at a Catholic funeral mass brings the chalice to his lips - and falls over dead...

When Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas confirms that the consecrated wine contained potassium cyanide, she's determined to solve the murder of Father Miguel Flores, despite her discomfort with her surroundings. It's not the bodegas and pawn shops of East Harlem that bother her, though the neighborhood is a long way from the stone mansion she shares with her billionaire husband Roarke. It's all that holiness flying around at St. Christobal's that makes her uneasy.
A search of the victim's sparsely furnished room reveals little - except for a carefully hidden religious medal with a mysterious inscription, and a couple of underlined Bible passages. The autopsy reveals more: faint scars of knife wounds, a removed tattoo - and evidence of plastic surgery suggesting "Father Flores" may not be the man his parishioners thought. Now, as Eve pieces together clues that suggest identity theft, gang connections, and a deeply personal act of revenge, she hopes to track down whoever committed this unholy act. Until a second murder - in front of an even larger crowd of worshippers - knocks the whole investigation sideways.

    "Another Winner"

    I love this series, these characters, and can not say enough about this reader! She makes every character come alive.
    This series is the very best of J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts work. I hope she keeps writing them.
    I will buy every one the first day it is out.

    "Eve Dallas rocks - and so does Susan Ericksen!!!"

    Susan Ericksen is a brilliant audiobook reader, IMHO, because I love how she does the voices of the characters. I read another review for another J. D. Robb book where the reader was bothered by this, but I think she's absolutely brilliant. Nora Robert's characters are wonderful - I love all of them, down to the smallest parts - and with Susan portraying them so wonderfully...you have a complete experience when you listen to any of these audiobooks. I even hear the voices in my head when I read the regular books!!!

    "Mixed Feelings"

    Bit slow, not the usual pace and humour.I would not recommend it as a stand alone book as it would be off putting to the rest of the series and that would be a shame.To get the best from this series you need to start at the beginning its the only way to understand the characters and how they all come into play. I discuss the books with my sister who has also listened to the series and we often laugh at the antics of the characters. I love this series and thankfully a new one has been released. Keep them comming. I dont agree with the reviews about the narration,to maintain all the characters throughout 27 books is brilliant. well done Susan. Do yourself a favour, buy book 1 and go from there.

    "Fascinating Detail"

    I am continually amazed at the twists and turns that J D Robb can wind into a story, especially in a series that has lasted as long the "In Death" books have. I am not a fan of the grisly details in some of her books so Salvation In Death was a pleasant change while fully engaging the mind with a complex and fascinating mystery. And as always the enjoyment the regular cast of characters and Eve's personal opinions on "real" life bring.

    "Mediocre"

    I am a HUGE fan of the "In Death" series, but this one just seemed to lack the usual punch they are known to deliver. The crime solving element was fantastic, but the rest of the story seemed to just skim over the interpersonal dynamics that normally exist between the cast of characters. Several of them were mentioned, but there was no new development to draw you in. Usually I can't stop listening until I am finished with one of these books, but this one was easily put aside for me and didn't hold my interest. Still a great series, though. I guess I just missed the reconnection with the group that I normally feel.

    "Refund Please!"

    I enjoy the "in death" series, but this was a waste of a credit. It was a rehashing of previous books, and not a very good one at that. I was expecting another edge of your seat thriller that we have come to know and love, but this book was difficult to listen to with Peabody's constant whining and complaining, and Dallas's over the top contempt. Even the nariator seemed bored with the book and was just going through the motions. I found myself saying, "just tough it out, it might get better." I was wrong. Please bring back the old Dallas!

    Seriously - this series was brought to life, for me, with the brilliance of Susan Ericksen! I love the stories (for sure formulaic in one sense - but I still avidly listen) JD has given us. The graphic murders that these characters deal with are intense, but the laughter and love between all of them still shine through. I you can DEFINITELY hear it in the voices that Ms. Ericksen gives them! I can't imagine going back to simply reading these for myself, because when I do, I still hear their voices talking in my head. LOVE

    Story
    "An Eye For an Eye"
    What did you love best about Salvation in Death?

    The relationships growing, maturing, and changing between the continuing characters of the book....also, the intricate relationships and interweaving of relationships in the other characters of the story--the perpetrators, the victims and the spectators, the players in the drama.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Eve dealt with the mothers was memorable as was the prolonged ending of the story where Eve endeavored to make the evil perpetrator of the crime receive justice and the other person who was more moral receive lenient treatment by legal means.


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

    It made me think...at times I felt anger at Eve's character for her inflexibility towards others perceived weakness.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best of the series. The main story was very complex, with interesting characters and side stories but the shorter story of a murder in the center seemed contrived to add another murder into the book.

    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    "My Favorite "In Death" So Far!"

    I used to live in this neighborhood around 1960 when I went to nursing school. The book brought back lots of memories.

    The story was fabulous but the narration was the best. All of the voices and accents were done so well. It was like being in the neighborhood with the cacophany of sound that I remember so well.
