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.

    "Great short listen."
    What did you love best about Taken in Death?

    It fits nicely into the series with a futuristic twist on a classic fairy tale.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    After 30+ books, Susan Erickson has all the characters refined to the point of recognition by voice alone.


    Any additional comments?

    Thoroughly enjoyable.

    "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.

    "Too short"

    Not up to the usual standard like the other In Death series. Characters seemed shallower than normal. I am a big fan of this series but this book just fell short.

    "It Is A Short Story!!!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oh don't make me pick, I love them all.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She is one of the best readers ever. She is so good with all the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I am surprised that readers complained about the story, it is a "short" story and it goes quick, but I like them and having stepped through this series one by one I never miss the short stories. I like that the author gives us something between the full novels. I really love this series.

    "Short but Exceptional as always"

    Susan Erikson gives another spectacular performance as Eve Dallas and the gang. J.D. Robb manages to pack all of the excitement, intrigue and mystery of a full length novel into this "short" story. A must read for fans.

    "the narrator makes or break à book"

    the reader makes Peabody and Fenney sound like redneck, stupid cops.

    Dallas sounded so dry and bordeline mean to them.

    I almost did not listened to the book.

    cute twist on a faire tale

    "Great short read"

    This book is a continuation on the other stories she has written. I find they move fast and have fun analogies.

    "Lt. Good Witch"

    Even though this was a relatively short novella, it had a pretty good story line. Not Ms. Robb's best work, more like a little breather for her. The little boy with his smarts and bravery was the real star of this novella. I rather enjoyed it though others may not. I think that would basically be because of the shortness of the story. Ms. Robb is still on top of her game but I think she just needed a little break.

    "The best of the shorts!"

    Loved it! The best of the In Death novellas: tight, suspenseful, emotional. Narrator owns series.
