Strangers in Death: In Death, Book 26 | [J. D. Robb]

Strangers in Death: In Death, Book 26

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.

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.

    "Excellent series"

    I picked this series up at about book 5 and it didn't take long to get me hooked. I have read many police procedural book series and this series ranks up there with the best of them. Sometimes it's kind of hard to understand some of the futuristic technology, but what sci-fi/futuristic type novel isn't nowadays? It is full of Nora Roberts' trademark steamy romance scenes and humor, but that only adds to the drama and intrigue of this series. Eve Dallas and her partner Roarke make an excellent pair in solving the many mysterious and action-packed cases they encounter. There is also lots of memorable characters as well. I never miss a book. There is not a bad book in this series. I say sit back, relax, and enjoy one of the best narrators in the business take you through a police adventure that will have you wanting more once it ends. And there are a lot of books to enjoy in this series. Read them all. You will not be able to get enough!!!

    "Interesting Story"

    I dont agree that this was boring. I would say it was too long breaking down the why and how, since Eve already knew the who. I loved getting an update on Charles and Louise and the jokes and banter between the characters alwasy make me laugh out loud as if they are really chating and I am involved. To me these stories are real and easy to get your self wrapped up in. The story was interesing and murderer is easy to dislike from the beggining (very annyoying and mean).
    Happy reading. On to Book 27...

    "Great Series"

    Its often been said in many reviews that to start at the begiing and just keep going is the way to go. ABSOLUTLY. The background characters and their stories are as much a part of this series as the actual gruesome deaths and although each book can each be listened to individually to get the most out of it I feel you need the whole lot. Excellant narration, geat job Susan even though you did have a hiccup with Peabody at one stage. Only 2 to go and I have caught up here's hoping J D Robb has another about to go.

    "Why aren't more audio books read like this?"
    Any additional comments?

    Susan Ericksen is an exceptional performer! Her voices throughout this series are consistent, it is such a joy listening to them. You really a find yourself lost in each story and as soon as one book is finished I can't wait to start the next. I wish more audio books would be performed as this. However good some narrators are I still find its hard to distinguish one character from the next in audio, but not with Susan. You won't be disappointed, but start the series from the beginning.

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

    "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.

    "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.
