Treachery In Death: In Death, Book 32 | [J. D. Robb]

Treachery In Death: In Death, Book 32

In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it. Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve. But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation.

Publisher's Summary

In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it.

Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve.

But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation. Determined to start working out as hard as she grills suspects, she chooses to do it at the old, rarely-used gym at Central. After a grueling workout, she squeezes into one of the narrow shower stalls, happy to have the place to herself. Just after she shuts the water off, the gym door clatters open - and while she cringes inside the stall, trying not to make a sound, Peabody overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. References are made to delivering product, and a house in the islands, and someone named Keener who’s supposed to look like an OD. It doesn’t take long for a naked and vulnerable Peabody to realize that both officers are crooked - guilty not just of corruption but of murder as well. Fortunately, the two clear out of the locker room without realizing there was a witness.

Eve Dallas may have trained Peabody well - but this is too dangerous for one person to take on alone. Now Peabody, Eve, and her husband, Roarke, must try to get the hard evidence they need to bring the dirty cops down - knowing all the while that the two have already killed to keep their secret, and are no doubt willing to do it again.

    "Treachery in Death"

    Another great story in the death series. Peabody played a greater role in this story and new character were introduced and I think at least one will show up in future stories. I think Robb did a good job showing the feelings of betrayal that police officers have toward a crooked officer. The past was fast and Susan Ericksen does a great job reading the story. Can not wait for the next in the series.

    "Didn't work for me"

    I must live in a different world from most of the rest of the reviewers.... The narrator’s style and exaggerated character interpretations grated on me. The interaction of the characters, and the characters themselves, seemed clichéd. The plot was reasonably well thought out, but the execution seemed to feed on bitchy female behavior. The three main female characters just didn't pan out as well-developed, mature women - despite many attempts to portray them as that. Pulling hair, indeed. The author needed to go there?

    "Outstanding"

    Fast-paced and full of intrigue, Treachery in Death hits all the right notes. There's something for everyone who enjoys the In Death series: great character development and interactions, humor, action and some wonderful Eve/Roarke moments. Eve's adversary is one of the strongest and most interesting in the series.

    As always, Susan Ericksen does a wonderful job bringing the entire cast of characters to life.

    Highly recommended!

    "Best book ever in J.D. Robb's Death Series"

    Treachery in Death is my favorite of all J.D. Robb's Death Series books. I have listened to them all in and out of order. Thank you J.D. Robb for keeping Eve Dallas & Roarke alive with a new offering each year.
    In this book I feel J.D. Robb really lets us know each character to a fuller depth. From Eve, Roarke, Peabody, to the Chief, I feel I know them as if they were friends or family. The story is great and I loved every minute of it. I did not want it to end. Susan Ericksen makes these books come alive. She has got to be one of the best female narrator's of all time.
    I loved this new addition to the 21st Century's "In Death" Series. Thank you J.D. Robb.

    "Flippin' Awesome!"

    This series just keeps getting better and better! This installment even has a very interesting twist in how Dallas and Peabody get involved. I don't want to give any more away lest I encroach on the mystery, but suffice to say you will NOT be disappointed! It's also enjoyable to catch up with past characters. JD Robb is a master at this and I can hardly wait for the next book!

    "TREACHERY IN DEATH"

    Another fantastic Eve Dallas mystery. J D Robb continues to have a storyline that catches you within the first few lines and holds you tight til the last work. It is a joy to follow the lives of Rourke, Peabody, McNab, Feeney and Sommerset. Can't wait for another!!!!

    "Great Book!!!"

    This book reminds me of "promises in death" which I loved. This is even better.

    "Pretty boring"

    This is just not my kind of book. The narrator was pretty good but the storyline was so plain and simple. No twists no turns. Very predictable and I didn't like the voice of Peabody. I was sorry I waisted the credit!

    "Shallow"

    New to this series and very much wanted to like it. Though the story moves along at a good pace, the story was what I would expect out of a one-hour, police procedural (and not a clever one at that). The characters are one-dimensional with the villan barely fleshed out. The dialogue is mostly predictable. Character motivations are easy stereotypes and the futuristic setting seems like an unnecessary plot device as the story could be set in the present and not suffer for it. The narrator is talented but given the material (or perhaps the direction of the production?) the narration - of the heroine in particular - is at times strident.

    Having said that, the series could be a fun beach read.

    "J D Robb Treachery"

    As usual another cracking story about Eve, Roarke and all her colleagues. I have read or listened to all this series so far and have never felt let down by any of the books. Long may this series continue

    "A real winner"

    The latest J. D. Robb continues to please - a taut-paced story dealing with corruption in the police, this reading kept me hooked. I've recently come to audiobooks because of a vision problem, and being an avid reader I wasn't sure if the audio version would hold up, but I wasn't disappointed. Eve Dallas, her husband Roarke, her partner Peabody, all come to life in this exciting thriller, and there was even a tear to my eye at the end. Highly recommended
