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.

    "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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Narrator missed the mark for me"

    The narrator and I just did not sync with this one. It was okay to irritating. Yes, this is subjective. My ear just could not buy into the way it was read and the different voices.

    "This entire series is great fun!"

    Pick it up anywhere in the series, the back plot is not that intricate. But just a warning, you will want to listen to them all!

    "Follows Roberts Pattern"
    What did you love best about Taken in Death?

    I am comfortable with In Death series and its pattern. It followed true to course but was much quicker and refrained from the usual love scene.


    If you’ve listened to books by J. D. Robb before, how does this one compare?

    It was better than some of the In Death series, was a little darker. It was a little different with the fairy tale entwined in the story.


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

    She did well and her accents were dead on. She brings out the characters.


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

    Cry some because it involved children and I felt for the parents.

    Story
    "An Afternoon Snack"
    What did you love best about Taken in Death?

    The story grabbed your attention and kept it. Given the relatively short length of the story, it was a quick listen.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was good, giving you glimpses of where it was going, but still taking turns you didn't expect.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

    No. I didn't enjoy either the accents or the character voices the reader used. I thought the accents were poor and some of the voices given to characters made them sound dumb.


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

    I didn't laugh or cry, but enjoyed an afternoon of listening to a good book.
