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.

Yes, I will listen to Vengeance In Death again because it holds the foundation of this series.
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.
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.
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.
No only because I know the ending.
Eve trying to comfort Roarke.
All the "In Death" performances are excellent.
Once again when Eve tries to comfort Roarke, she is very endearing.
The relationship between Eve and Roark - it's as real as it is passionate. They love each other flaws and all
Knowing that the killer was going to keep turning up but never sure just when that would be had me on pins and needles
The scene at the end when Eve was taunting Liam every time he started quoting the Bible - she is fearless.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
I hope J.D. Robb, AKA Nora Roberts keeps up this series for years to come!
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.
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.
She is always such an incredible narrator. She does an excellent job of drawing you into the story.
It's on of the best 'In Death' mysteries I've read so far.
Roarke, Eve, Peabody, McNabb
She doe a good job with different voices, especially the Irish brogue.
Eve and Roarke's first big fight and the way they resolved it and made up.
I have enjoyed the "In death " series. I am up to book six since I started trying to read them in sequence, plus a couple of others from later in the series. The characters are entertaining, Peabody is a great sidekick, Somerset is a pain in the #*%@. But they must put aphrodisiacs in the water in the year 2058. Please!! I like sex as much as anyone, but you cannot tell me that people really have as much gratuitous sex as Rourke and Dallas. They have a fight, it ends in sex. He goes away, when he comes back they immediately have sex. She goes away, when SHE comes back they have sex. She stubs her toe, they have sex. The cat barfs on the rug, they have sex. Give me a break! A bit more story, and a lot less sex would allow me to enjoy these books a lot more rather than risk my life trying to fast forward to "after the orgasm" while I'm driving, which is where I listen to my Audible books. Come on J.D. Put some of the sex in your Nora books instead, and save an innocent life!!
Listen and learn. Life is an adventure. Have fun, laugh, and love thy neighbor. Life is too short not to have a good time. Bye
Eve and Roarke, what an exciting couple. What a thriller, Eve's on the move again. Love your work.
