Publisher's Summary

Technology may be different in 2060 New York, yet the city is still a place of many cultures and great divides. And as ever, some murders receive more attention than others - especially those in which the victim is a prominent businessman found in his Park Avenue apartment tied to the bed - and strangled - with cords of black velvet.

It doesn't surprise Lieutenant Eve Dallas that Thomas Anders' scandalous death is a source of titillation and speculation for the public - and humiliation for his family. While everyone else in the city is talking about it, those close to Anders aren't so anxious to do so. Fortunately, because Dallas' billionaire husband, Roarke, happens to own the prime real estate where Anders's sporting-goods firm was headquartered, she has some help with access.

Before long, she's knocking on doors - or barging through them - to look for the answers she needs. But the facts don't add up. Physical evidence suggests that the victim didn't struggle. The security breach in the highly fortified apartment indicates that the killer was someone close to Anders, but everyone's alibi checks out, from the wife who was off in the tropics to the loving nephew who stands to inherit millions. Was this a crime of passion - or a carefully planned execution?

It's up to Dallas to solve a sensational case where all involved guard secrets from one another - and strangers may be connected in unexpected and deadly ways.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "another wonderful novel"

    I loved how it was only one murder. it didn't follow the same pattern as the others. which isn't bad but it's good. eventually the other murder was connected. I love Baxter! she should make one where Baxter is in it more. I like him more thank Roarke. haha.

    "Loved it! As always The narrator was wonderful!"

    You weren't exactly keep guess but it takes an unexpected twist near the end that's great. If you have made it this far in the series then you know it's worth it. If this is your first book then start at the beginning it's worth it!

    "Another great listen "in death""

    This is a great series. Can't believe I'm already on book 26 in the series.

    Lt. Eve Dallas has her work cut out for her with all the crazy homicides she encounters in this series. Each story follows several core characters while introducing new murder victims and killers. Can't get enough and hope new ones come out before I get to the end of the series.

    "Don't trust a stranger"
    Where does Strangers in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's a solid example of the story and pacing of all the "In Death" series books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eve, of course. She and Roarke are wonderful characters.


    What three words best describe Susan Ericksen’s performance?

    Polished, interesting, lively


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really, but I thought the suspect interviews at the end were very well done.

    Susan Ericksen, the narrator, is amazing. And I love listening to all of the new situations Nora Roberts comes up. Fun, too.

    Story
    "Plot Borrowed From Classic Movie"
    If you could sum up Strangers in Death in three words, what would they be?

    Duplicity...Proxy....Manipulation


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have made Eve more sympathetic toward people who she saw as only weak when they were victims without hope.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    As usual, I enjoy most the scenes between Roarke & Eve; between McNabb & Peabody.


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

    I felt angry toward Eve at times and angry at the manipulative person who planned three murders.


    Any additional comments?

    An interesting story, borrowed from the classic Hitchcock movie, 'Strangers on a Train'. That this was the plot of a classic mystery film was mentioned by a couple of the characters in the book. I thought it was not very thorough of Eve to not show an interest in seeing the movie.

    "What a bitch"

    Practically right from the start Eve knew who did it but the book was taken up with the twists and turns that come with trying to prove it. There was nothing about the murderer that you could say was likeable in fact she was a grade A bitch but what an actress. The twists and turns we take and at the end when I must admit I just didn't work out how it was done was genius. JD has got a brilliant imagination this series where by now you think it would be stale just gets better and better.
