    "Another good Dallas"

    Unlike a number of reviewers, I throughly enjoy Susan Erickson's reading of the IN DEATH books. It may be because Net Library has the first 2 or 3 books in audio format read by someone else. No life in the characters with the other reader, could not tell Roarke was Irish, the intire reading was dull. Not so with Susan Erickson, especially with Eve..

    Witness in Death stays with the In Death program. We learn more about the characters and get to solve a mystery. Like all formula books, the reader or listener knows what to expect, knows Eve, with Roarke and the others help, will catch the murderer and peace will reign until the next book. Works for me. I've read them all, now listening to them all and enjoying every moment.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "Great Narration"

    I have to say that this review is more for the narrator of this series than this specific book. Susan Ericksen IS the voice of Eve Dallas. I just finished book 27 in the series and have come back to listen to the books in between - I have to say that Susan Ericksen really makes it for me. I'm glad to see she has narrated all of them because I am certainly enjoying the stories and can't wait to listen to the rest. I find myself knowing the characters just by the way she portrays them which make the books really easy to follow when listening along. I'm never left wondering who's saying what, whereas with some other narrators it's hard to tell who's who and you really have to pay close attention to what's being said. I like to be entertained while I'm driving - I don't want to have to think to hard to follow along - so I for one truly appreciate the way she has narrated this series of books. I'll have to shop for more books that she has narrated and see how she does with other stories.

    "Excellent Narrator"

    Besides the actual book being great the Narrator does a wonderful job with all the character voices. None are alike and the consistency of all the books with this Narrator is amazing. Mystery of the story is always unpredictable and this one in particular is really unpredictable even in the very end. I have listened to all this series as audio and I am hooked.

    "Murder in Full Sight -- Excellent!"

    This is among my favorite Eve Dallas books. I particularly enjoyed the opening of the story, in which Eve and Roarke are attending the premier performance of "Witness for the Prosecution" in the New Globe Theater, constructed and owned by Roarke. The description of Eve's reactions to the play are quite wonderful. She has never seen the play or the movie, so her evaluations and reactions are based entirely on her experience as a police officer: she is sure from the beginning that Leonard Vole is guilty, that his wife is lying to save him, and that he's not worth the sacrifice she is making.

    In the last scene, when Vole's wife stabs him, a real knife has been substituted for the stage prop so that the actor is really stabbed and dies on stage. Eve immediately takes charge of the situation, and the real murder investigation begins. From then on, Eve spends time trying to understand actors and their motivations, which provides a great deal of frustation for her and amusement for Roarke.

    When the investigation gets into full swing, we get the full team at work together, which is one of the best parts of every In Death book. Peabody, earnest and ironic; McNab, jumpy and enthusiastic; Feeney, chewing his sugared almonds; Nadine, always searching for an exclusive interview; and all the other wonderful characters created by Robb. Throughout the story line, Eve is also gaining new insights into the ways that people interact and how to relate to them.

    J.D. Robb writes such wonderful characters, and then does such a good job of developing the characters from one book to another, that the reader really becomes involved with the characters and cares about them and their welfare. I find it remarkable that she is able to produce two full-length In Death books each year, with an occasional short novel in-between, maintaining the quality of the writing and characterization throughout.

    I am hopelessly hooked on this series. May J.D. Robb live long and write much more.

    "hmgaler"

    I haven't listened to this book yet, but am surprised at the negative comments about Susan Ericksen's reading. I've listened to many audible books and find Ms. Ericksen's reading to be excellent. Yes, there are times when she slips when several characters are talking at the same time and she must changes voices frequently and yes, her voice of Peabody doesn't fit the geographical area where Peabody was raised. However, I find that Ms. Ericksen does a great job of defining each character and uses excellent changes of tonal quality, gender differentiation, and accent to give us a clear picture of the characters. I think Ms. Ericksen is one of the better readers that I've had the pleasure of listening to here at Audible. She makes the "in death" series come alive in my opinion. If you've ever tried reading in a dramatic way to your grandchildren it becomes very easy to appreciate the difficulty involved in being a quality reader like Ms. Ericksen.

    "Good, but not the best."

    This plot reminded me of a "Murder She Wrote" mystery. It seemed rather more simple and predictable. The story was well written and the process of uncovering the culprit was good, but just not the best of the lot.

    Once again, the narrator was excellent!

    Yes, I'd recommend it to those reading the series in order.. it continues the saga of the characters.

    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    "Another great read!"

    I love the way the books are set up with character development in the first half and action and follow through in the second half. I would love to have J.D. Robb's mind.

    I can't understand why anyone doesn't like Susan Eriksen's narration. She makes all of the characters come alive. She brings a visual picture to the words that are written. Susan is a fabulous narrator.

    "THE ROMANTIC DINNER"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Rarely am I lost for words but OMG!!! There is no warm blooded human being, friend or foe that I would not allow to share and yet envy the passionate pleasure that is Witness in Death: In Death, Book 10


    What did you like best about this story?

    As a devoted liege I often imagine that this is the apex of Nora's artistic prowess and with every book she proves me a blithering idiot...lol


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

    Eve


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I wouldn't make this book into a movie for the injustice that would be exacted by the pedestrian directorship of some famous Director.


    Any additional comments?

    Its fifty books but don't give up. I guarantee no matter how flabbergasted you are now it will always get better
