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.

    "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?

    "Fantastic, one of the best in the series!"

    Treachery is a great listnen; I had difficulty turning it off and I didn't want it to end.
    It is in the top three of the series.

    "Great Series"

    I agree....Susan Erikson is a master of voices and she really makes the characters come to life for me. Being a linguist helps her in her craft and oh my, she is good at her craft.

    The book is superb. I can't wait for NY2Dallas

    "Are those fake reviews?"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    I don't think so, even if my life depended on it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Going back to the classics and someone who can write!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Grossly exaggerated characters. Sometimes you could not tell which character was speaking.


    What character would you cut from Treachery In Death?

    Eve Dallas, Renée Oberman, pretty much all.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first book by J.D. Robb and I was lured by the great reviews. I think I've only finished the book to provide a truthful review.
    1. The characters are not very well developed to say the least. So cliché!
    2. The style is awful: very limited vocabulary, very repetitive. Too many F and B words for my taste.
    3. The story is OK, nothing clever. The end is very predictable. No surprises, limited or no suspense.

    "So Predictable - So Annoying"

    Don't often review but appreciate those who do and want to save someone a bad read. Think I got this book on a $5 sale and that was too much. Yes, this sounds harsh but the characters, storyline and narrator are ANNOYING! I'm a big fan of Michael Connelly and was looking for a new series - this is not it and don't think I can even finish this book - something I've never done before, and I've listened to hundreds of audio books.

    Story
    "Really Bad. Disappointed..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If tghe story was more interesting without the goofy lingo and patronizing story line.


    What was most disappointing about J. D. Robb’s story?

    I felt like the main character was helping her mentally challenged partner throughout the story!!!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Ericksen?

    I did not like her voice characterization for the partner at all. Maybe if the partner would have sounded less like a country bumpkin I wouldn't have felt so let down by this purchase.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I've read other JD Robb books which I liked. This is not one of them.

    Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.

    Story
    "A Dreary High School Play"

    Oh J.D., how dear is cop-mission to a lady-officer besotted with truth, dedication, goodness, and virtue? . How many times will you have her preach these dear things at us to separate a couple of gooey sex scenes kidnapped from treacly bodice-busters? "Treachery In Death" is a gaggle of speeches held together by a chicken-wire of police-procedure.

    I never listened to J.D. Robb before this one came on sale. Nope, never will again. It's said that Robb is a pseudonym for a writer with a big-foot brand name. Whoa, there's a brand to avoid. As for Susan Ericksen… Is that the way she thinks men sound? Maybe she gets better when NOT acting out what bores like the cast on a secondary-school stage performing a "story" written by a team-assignment to a junior level English class. Oh, and there's a tediously predictable car-fight thrown in to make credibility go PHWANG! with the subtlety of a piano pushed from a balcony.

    Nope, didn't like it. Should have been named, "Treacle In Death". No wonder it went into the Audible remainder bin.

    "One of the best in the series!"

    This is one of the best in the series. The plot was exciting, suspenseful and gripping.

    This narrator is absolutely the BEST! I am amazed at how much I get into it and always know who is speaking. Her breadth of voices is astounding.

    Yes, this is an excellent installment!

    "Way too much talking"
    What was most disappointing about J. D. Robb’s story?

    Some action but too much talking, preaching, and mutual admiration between the characters.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She's an excellent reader and interpreter of the story.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    boredom and impatience

    "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!
