Publisher's Summary

He is an expert with the latest technology...a madman with the mind of a genius and the heart of a killer. He quietly stalks his prey. Then he haunts the police with cryptic riddles about the crimes he is about to commit - always solved moments too late to save the victims' lives.

Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the first victim butchered in his own home. The second lost his life in a vacant luxury apartment. The two men had little in common. Both suffered unspeakable torture before their deaths. And both had ties to an ugly secret of 10 years past - a secret shared by none other than Eve's new husband, Roarke.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "Great Story but narrator ruined it!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have read all of J D Robb books on Eve Dallas and look forward to the new ones to come. LOVE THEM! I travel a lot and love the audible books and on many occasions have bought books I have already read. However, I did not like the narrator Susan Ericksen. I didn't like her voice for the J D Robb series at all!! ESPECIALLY THE VOICE SHE USED FOR DET PEABODY! SHE MADE PEABODY SOUND LIKE A DUMB DORK!!!! When I read the books I have a great respect for Peabody charature along with many others the way J D ROBB describes them and the characters they play. But the narrator ruines them! I won't buy anymore J D Robb, Eve Dallas audible books with Ms Ericksen as narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really like Summerset in this book because of the interaction between Eve and him.


    What three words best describe Susan Ericksen’s voice?

    Terrible, yuck, nasal.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I would Love to buy more of J D Robb aaudible books, however, because Susan Ericksen is Narrating them I will not buy anymore. I will just read them.

    Any additional comments?

    I wondered when I started this series why anyone would want to read book after book about the same situation. And yet, every time I order the next book, I just love it. The relationships of the characters, really knowing them and knowing what they will do for each other, keeps me moving on to the next.

    "Roarke's past with Summerset comes back to haunt"
    Would you listen to Vengeance in Death again? Why?

    Yes, I will listen to Vengeance In Death again because it holds the foundation of this series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Roarke was my favorite in this book because he learned a lot about how much he had changed over the years and how much was the same. I loved the scene with the little boy and the glide cart.


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

    Eve.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best in the series. You see how Peabody stands up as you knew she would. Summerset learns some important things about himself and Eve. Roarke is at his best and Eve shines. Don't miss this one.

    Story
    "Vengeance in Death"

    Revenge is the name of the game for "Vengeance in Death". Someone is killing people that Roarke know in Dublin when he was young. Then the worse thing is that the killer is making it look like Summerset is the murder. This puts Dallas on the edge, that she has to keep Summerset out of jail for murders he did not do. Then making sure things from the past don't come out while she is trying to find the true murderer. Susan Ericksen does a great job in the narration of this story, making the character come to life. This story will keep you lessening to find out what is going to happen next.

    I enjoyed this book very much. I am so happy that the same narrator reads all the books throughout the series.

    "Vengeance is Mine says Dallas."
    Would you listen to Vengeance in Death again? Why?

    No only because I know the ending.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Vengeance in Death?

    Eve trying to comfort Roarke.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All the "In Death" performances are excellent.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Once again when Eve tries to comfort Roarke, she is very endearing.

    Story
    "J. D. Robb does it again!"
    What did you love best about Vengeance in Death?

    The relationship between Eve and Roark - it's as real as it is passionate. They love each other flaws and all


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

    Knowing that the killer was going to keep turning up but never sure just when that would be had me on pins and needles


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene at the end when Eve was taunting Liam every time he started quoting the Bible - she is fearless.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely and whenever I couldn't keep listening, I'd finish what I was doing quickly so that I could get back to this book!


    Any additional comments?

    Susan Erickson is an amazing reader - she can do any voice and any accent and I believe completely that someone besides the reader is saying each of these character's lines. The writing is intelligent, funny and suspenseful. I love that this series takes place in fifth decade of the 21st century - what is going on then seems quite feasible. How J. D. Robb (Nora Roberts) can continue to turn out book after book is astounding to me!

    Story
    "One The Better Books In The Series So Far"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this book, it brings you back to Roarke's past! I love Roarke and truth be told he is the reason I keep buying the next book in the series. He is every woman's dream man and in this book we get to learn about his past and what he did there that has had us guessing up to this point. Eve's and Sommerset's relationship is severely challenged but in the end we see they come to an understanding and an admiration of sorts with each other.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Roarke


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She is great to listen too. She does the different accents wonderfully, she flows from one voice to the other never making it choppy or taking you out of the story with a bad interpretation of the accent or the character. She has become my favorite narrator and I have bought books I might not have otherwise purchased simply because I saw she was doing the narrating and I know she will make the book interesting.


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

    The love between Eve and Roarke is believable not to mention enviable. I like to wait for their intimate moments, it is not just the intimate moments just to have them in the story, they always make them so you learn another depth of their relationship.Peobody her assistant, is funny. I can't tell you how many times I have been listening when out of the blue she will have a witty come back to Eve and I laugh out loud.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope J.D. Robb, AKA Nora Roberts keeps up this series for years to come!

    "A blast from the past"
    Would you listen to Vengeance in Death again? Why?

    I enjoy running through the entire In Death series. This one is interesting as it gives us a rare look into Roarke's past - his days gone by and even takes us to his home in Ireland. I like it when the focus isn't necessarily all about Eve - but includes the other characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In this one - Summerset would have to be my favorite character. He gets an opportunity to be more than just Roarke's man - he's an important part of the story. We learn a bit more about their relationship and he finally starts to see Eve in different eyes.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She is always such an incredible narrator. She does an excellent job of drawing you into the story.
