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.

    "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.

    "One of the Best"

    This book is now in my top 3 of the series. Loved watching the team work "undercover". I enjoyed the small part where Peabody is "primary" giving Eve orders!
    As always Susan Ericksen was fabulous!

    "I Heart Dallas!"

    The 'In Death' series is definitely one of my favorites, greatly due to the wonderful narrative efforts of Susan Ericksen. She makes the characters jump off the page and straight into your head. I see very vividly - Eve, Peabody, Roarke, McNab and even the cat, in my mind when she's telling each story. Treachery in Death is no exception. J D changeed her M. O. a bit and gave us the villians right away. That was certainly a twist and added great depth to this installment. I love seeing Peabody grow and the familiar cast of characters are always great to come back to. This is one that shouldn't be missed. Looking forward to the next one already.

    "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

    "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.

    "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!

    Story
    "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

    "Engaging Story, Some Preachiness, Worth the Listen"

    This is the third that I have listened to in the "in Death" series. So far, this seems to be the story with the fewest "steamy" blah-blahs between Roarke and Eve... which is fine with me. >;-) I also liked the increased roles of other characters surrounding the main ones and the development of the "evil" bad girl. Some of the futuristic technology (remember, this is 50 years into the future) was a bit too "convenient" to bolster the storyline, but it was forgivable. I thought the over and over "cannonizing" of cops was a bit over the top but, again, not overly annoying.

    Regarding Susan's read... as always, I think she is really good and I love the different voices- especially Peabody and the chief. However, it was absolutely noticable how much slower she read this story... why?? I tried to use the player's faster playback mode, but made her sound like a chipmonk. It didn't "drive me crazy", but I agree with others that she should speed it up to her pace of the others.

    "Amazing"

    J.D. Robb and narrator Susan Ericksen continue to amaze me!! With each and every "In Death" book Robb continuously keeps your attention and is so consistent with involving most if not all of the main characters. The evolution of the characters is so much fun! Susan Ericksen never falters with the voices of the characters. It amazes me how perfect she becomes each one! Fantastic!!!
