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.

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.
We are now proud parents of a daughter and a wonderful son-in-law! He is also a child of The U. S. Navy, bonded over military time:)!
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.
Listening to Stied Larsson's Millenium Trilogy. If J. D. Robb published more often, I'd listen to them.
The BEST NARRATOR OF ALL. I can use my imagination even more, for a more complete story experience.
I wouldn't have published it. I love Eve, Roarke, Gallahad and the whole gang but was extremely dissapointed with Taken.
Can't wait for next In Death!
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.
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.
I saw it and said, "great, here is a j.d. robb I don't have" So I wasted a credit on a book that lasted 3 hours. When it was over, practically before it began, I realized I'd been conned! Now I look carefully, and don't buy any book that is less than a third of a book.
Print publishers put 2-3 of these books together in one binding. I read them at the library, because I want to keep up on the latest in death stories. But three hours for $10 is a ripoff.
Length - story didn't develop.
Yes. I now recognize voices for various characters, so I just slip into the story.
None. It was already too short.
Yes! Put 2-3 of these together as one Audible book. I love to have and reread (relisten?) to them at the gym. as I cook, and most of all while I quilt.
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.
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.
