Publisher's Summary

Two young children disappear from their East Side home in New York City, their nanny killed in cold blood. As Lieutenant Eve Dallas begins to unravel the crime scene and search for Henry and Gala MacDermit, she's drawn into the twisted mind of a kidnapper who will stop at nothing to take revenge. Horrific threats concerning the brother and sister hit far too close to home for Eve, drawing her back into memories of her own tortured childhood.

But Eve knows that there's no time to waste on the past, and with every passing hour her determination to bring the children safely home strengthens. Eve and her team find themselves following an electronic breadcrumb trail left by a boy desperate to escape the evil witch. Their investigation into the kidnapper's sordid past reveals violent coercion, ritualistic killings, and chilling bloodlust - making her terrifying plans for the children abundantly clear.

    Story
    "The Good Witch"

    Teleoathic twins kidnapped by mother's evil twin sister. Dallas along with Roarke and her team do what they do best and rescue the kids. This novella by Robb is on par with her other fine works. Eve always entertains.

    Story
    "Love all In Death, this was too contrived, boring."
    What disappointed you about Taken in Death?

    I own and love the entire In Death series, listen to them over and over again. Taken in Death, feels too contrived and almost like Robb, just wanted to give us a novella, any novella. I did not enjoy it at all. Tried to re-listen but couldn't.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Listening to Stied Larsson's Millenium Trilogy. If J. D. Robb published more often, I'd listen to them.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The BEST NARRATOR OF ALL. I can use my imagination even more, for a more complete story experience.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Taken in Death?

    I wouldn't have published it. I love Eve, Roarke, Gallahad and the whole gang but was extremely dissapointed with Taken.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for next In Death!

    Story
    "Wow... that was awful"

    If I had paid more than $1.99 or had to listen much longer, I would be upset. It did keep my ears occupied during a 3 hour run, but I should have listened to my self breathe. The characters are just stupid - there were so many obvious plot holes and character inconsistencies that I couldn't engage with the story.

    "Recycling Plotlines"

    I have always loved the JD Robb series until a year ago. I feel that Nora is recycling plotlines and rushing out books that just are not her best work. I no longer run to Wal-mart the morning her books come out or put onto my audible wish list. If you have a credit, use it, donn't pay for this. You should buy something else.

    "Love this series"
    Any additional comments?

    I am such a big fan of Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb. The "In Death" series started my audible purchases and it is still my go to series to listen to while riding in the car, working, or an alternative to TV. This is one of my favorite novella's in the series and Susan Ericksen remains my favorite narrator. She is a talented audio actor. Her voices bring Eve and Roarke's story to life. I will continue to buy this series as long as JD Robb writes them.

    "Great listen"

    Futuristic version of Hansel and Gretel. Two young children abducted by their psycho aunt drop electronic bread crumbs to help Lt. Eve Dallas and her team find them. Probably my favorite of the J.D. Robb short stories, in spite of the fact that it’s all about the case, not about relationships.

    "Dallas-The Good Witch"

    Another great book, by J.D. Robb! It kinda showed a little bit of Eve's softer side, since it dealt with children. I love how Roark enjoys working on the cases with her.

    "Good Witch Lt. Eve Dallas does it yet again!"

    I love all the "In Death Series" books. Double the villians and twists and turns, means more excitment.

    Would you listen to Taken in Death again? Why?

    My husband and I love listening to the Eve Dallas series together

    Eve Dallas - she's such a kick-ass cop.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    I love the way Susan does all of the characters and have several favorites so it's hard to name one.


    Any additional comments?

    My husband and I would like to see all of the Dallas books made into a Series.
