Dante had been courting his victim in cyberspace for weeks before meeting her in person. A few sips of wine and a few hours later, she was dead. The murder weapon: a rare, usually undetectable date-rape drug with a street value of a quarter million dollars. Detective Eve Dallas is playing and replaying the clues in her mind. The candlelight, the music, the rose petals strewn across the bed - a seduction meant for his benefit, not hers. He hadn't intended to kill her. But now that he has, he is left with only two choices: to either hole up in fear and guilt or start hunting again....

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! When I first saw "Seduction In Death" new release date I thought it was just the same book with a new republication date... but it's not. I am passionate about the "In Death" series and am constantly blown away by J. D. Robbs /Nora Roberts genius. I think Susan Ericksen is brilliant but I have been perplexed for sometime as to why the "Powers That Be" dictated changes in the character depiction of my beloved characters in books 13-16. I didn't dare to even dream that I would ever get to hear my favorite character in these books as I have grown to love them but IT HAPPENED and I'M IN HEAVEN! All the character depiction in the Redo of Seduction In Death are back...to name a few, Peabody, Rourke, Eve, Morris, Commander Whitney etc... In the first rendition of Seduction In Death some of the characters went through major transformation, some more subtle in the Re-do they are all back, in the characters we have grown to love and expect, as they have been depicting in all the books with the exclusion of the character diversions in books 13-16. The Red-do of "Seduction In Death" in my opinion, is as it should have been the first time out. If this is your first "A-read" of Seduction in death you have a treat in store, if this is the first Re-do "A-read" of Seduction in Death you have a treat and surprise in store! Can't wait to A-read the next Re-do's. This one is a definite Winner! Major Kudu's to Ms. Ericksen!
I heard that a couple of the books were re-recorded but I thought that they could not be that bad - so no I would not go back and get the re-recorded versions. I have the entire collection and have listened to them for years but I never noticed that the old version did not have the right voices. I was listening to the old version tonight and not even one chapter in I had to stop because it was driving me crazy. Then I found the re-recorded version. It is all better now. :-) All the right voices are there.
All of them
Keep up the great work Susan Ericksen! If you ever stop reading Eve Dallas I will just have to cry.
I'm delighted that Susan Ericksen has re-recorded some of the first In Death books she originally performed several years ago. I think this was one of her firsts, and she had not yet developed all the distinct character voices that ID fans recognize today.I just finished listening to the new recording and it has really enhanced my enjoyment of this book. J.D. Robb and Susan Ericksen are a can't-be-beat combination!
I have been listening to all the books in order. This performance seemed somewhat sluggish. Story still great
Not sure what was going on with Ericksen's voice but this performance was really off.
a lover of books and finer things
I'm going through the In-Death series, I'm a fan of Nora Roberts but with so many books hadn't given this series a listen. From the reviews I guess so idiot told Susan to alter the voices. Hope that someone is in the equivalent of book Siberia. If it's not broke don't fix it. It distracted from a good story although I'm not a fan of knowing who the killer is at the onset. Takes away from my own detective work. Eve was ruder and a bit nastier in this one. She only started to sound like herself towards the end. This book took longer to get through, I actually found myself not in a rush to finish it and that's not normal for the rate I've been listening to the books. I hope the remainder of the series goes back to the beginning with the voices and character traits.
....in his hair. This line in the books is starting to get old, other than that, I am still enjoying the series and will continue on. As always, the narration is great!
A character fun story. Nothing really new or with twists. You just listen because of the characters.
She does these characters well.
It would be a Lifetime Movie, probably.
YES, THE BOOK WAS GOOD
LISTEN TO THE TWO MEN PLAN THE DATE MURDERS
I REALLY LOVED THE BOOK AND LISTEN TO IT AGAIN
I am really enjoying the In Death series of books, but this is the first one that was hard to get through. Eve was so rude and nasty in this book. She had a MAJOR chip on her shoulder and everyone even Finney was catching he'll from her. Poor Peabody can't get any sympathy from Eve to save her live...the part that I did appreciate her nasty temper was when she jumped all over that stupid detective....
The story line was great, very different and I'm glad McNabb finally did something about his feelings for Peabody....Ones you get past Eve's PMS like behavior, you will enjoy the book.
Possibly not. Sometimes in this series Susan Eriksons performance is a little slower making all the voices slightly different. This is one of the times. I still enjoyed the book though.
i always listen to the books quickly but 12 hours in one sitting might be a bit much.
This was an interesting concept with Lucious and Kevin. Not your average killers. Very interesting.
