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.

    "One of the best J.D. Robb books!"

    Those who gave this book a low rating obviously are not familiar with the history of Eve Dallas! The fist fight seen was one of the best of all her books because with all the technology available to them it was great to see them use basic skills. I loved the support from her fellow cops during that sceen and found it hilarious to the point of laughing out loud!

    "One of the best for this super long run series"

    I have listened to all of the series, love them all, but I just like this storyline the best I think. Just loved it. Worth the money or the credit, but recommend the series so you will know everyone. The series is super you will not be disappointed to spend money or credits on ALL of them. I own them on disk and slowly buying them on audible now. Worth owning twice LOL. I have started listening to this series again too.

    "Disappointed; did not like it at all"

    IMHO, save your credits; this book does not measure up to the usual Eve Dallas books, many of which (including the last most recent) I have read in a couple of days for light vacation reading. I did not care for this book very much in the audio format, though I have listened to almost the entire book walking back & forth to work. At times I wonder why I bother to finish it; perhaps I am hoping it will improve. The narration is overdone and phoney -- perhaps this is a series better read than listened to, so boring parts can be quickly skipped. The sarcasm is frighteningly bitter. It's a very terrible world portrayed. It's rather brainless, too. This book was written just to sell -- is very over commercialized and has no substance. JD Robb can do better than this.

    "I love the "In Death" series"

    Susan Ericksen is fantastic in her narration of this series. "Treachery in Death" was really enjoyable. I have gone back and listened to the earlier books in this series several times, just because they are so entertaining. If you have followed this series don't miss this one. Enjoy!

    "Micromanaging Corruption"

    The 'In Death' series is reliable. Norah Roberts, writing as J.D. Robb, publishes a new Lt. Eve Dallas in mid-February and mid-September every year. Reading them is a bit like going to a Black Angus Streak House. Sure, it's a chain - but the standards are high and you can expect a good meal.

    'Treachery in Death' doesn't disappoint, although it's a bit of a departure. In this book, Robb tells you 'who dunnit' up front. The question is how Dallas is going to catch - entrap - a corrupt colleague, Renee Oberman, another lieutenant who relies on family connections, manipulation, micromanagement, sex and terror to run an illegal enterprise.

    There's very little Sci-Fi in this one, and I missed that. Other than flying cars, the technology in this one is already here.

    Along the way, Dallas mentors her former aid/now detective, Peabody; and inadvertently plays matchmaker for two friends. Roarke, the love of Dallas' life, is a constant support.

    Robb's dialogue is good, and her take on effective leadership is as keen now as it is in 2060. I've gotten used to Susan Ericksen's narration style (after spending half of my listen of 'Holiday in Death' wondering if Peabody was a droid).

    [If this review helped, please press YES. Thanks!]

    "Awful"

    I have tried to listen to this book and finally had to turn it off after about an hour. The narrator is annoying at best and there is nothing sucking me in to force myself to listen on. A waste of a book credit.

    "Good Story, But......."

    Maybe it's just me, but I really found the narrator annoying. On a couple of occassions, I actually had to stop listening. Frankly, I wasn't sure if I could get through the entire book.

    "Great Story Best narrater"
    What did you love best about Treachery In Death?

    As always I love the performance by Susan Ericksen. The book was so wonderful.


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

    I get audio books to help me sleep ( its like being read to sleep by someone) This book had a plot so good i didn't want to sleep i just wanted to lay in bed and listen.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    Roarke... oh my... the way she add the acsent adds to the book. Also the was when she reads the tender loveing moments she moments she uses a soft loving voice. Susan Ericksen is the best and only narrarator for the whole series.


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

    I laughed at a few part another favorite of mine... some humor add... As always i hate to see (or in this case (hear)) the end. Always wanting more

    "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
