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.

Nothing gets me through the day like some time with NYPSD's famous Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her posse! This latest in the series is as good or better than any of the others - of which I have in my library the entire series. Kickin butt and takin names....Eve Dallas is my hero. Please don't make us wait too long for the next. Kuddos to author for your imagination in print, narrator (Susan Ericksen is phenomenal) and especially to the producers for making this available for download.
As always, I love the J.D. Robb book Treachery in Death. Exciting, exacting and keeps my attention. While I enjoy more reading myself as I have my own "pictures" of the characters, after awhile I could enjoy the narrator more and just enjoy the story line.

JD Robb's Treachery in Death is one of the best in the series. Susan Erickson again has made the book come to life. The story, the tempo and the details as always are fast paced and keep the listener glued to their seats.
This is a well written story, extremely well narated by Mr. Ericksen, fast pacing and captivating. The ending is a little predictible but it is a great book.
I love JD Robb books, and this one was as good as expected. However, the reader of this audio book was really challenging to listen to. The character's name is Peabody, not "Pea-buddy." Also, I prefer it when the book is just read aloud; I really don't need the addition of fake accents (so poorly done). This was particularly annoying because a few of the main characters have accents, meaning that the annoyingly fake accents were constantly occurring. Next time, I'll buy the ebook and read it instead.
Say something about yourself!
This is the best so far! Peabody is coming into her own and Dallas and Roarke are there to support her. I eagerly await each new installment and they do not disappoint! Susan Ericksen is the perfect narrator for this series! I dare say the next In Death book may even top this one!
Dribble, the main character is unlikeable, the narrator does not do a good job at the different voices, Peabody sounds like an idiot. I would not recommend this book at all
Robb writes a good book and this is his type of book. If you read his books you will recognized the characters and this book is his style. enjoyed reading this book- not great but good.
I found this somewhat entertaining but...Tooo many abbreviations sort of makes you lose the train of thought..IAD, IBB, knew some but not enough
A book lover with varied interests: history, political and technical and economic thrillers, mysteries, crime dramas, futuristic fantasy.
The real star of Treachery in Death is narrator Susan Ericksen. She made the story live, where it was otherwise dying. As a thriller junkie, this story was a little mundane for me. I had a difficult time getting into the storyline. But gradually, with Ericksen's help, I found a footing and hung in. If the writer intended to produce a female character who was often abrasive, overbearing, sanctimonious, vindictive, and violent, she succeeded. (By the way, I like strong female characters.) Eve Dallas' top dog status almost made me feel sorry her enemy, who came across as the underdog. J.D. Robb continues to be one of my favorite writers, but this one just didn't do it for me.
