Delusion In Death: In Death, Book 35 | [J. D. Robb]

Delusion In Death: In Death, Book 35

It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

Publisher's Summary

It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving.

Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

Eve Dallas is trying to sort out the inexplicable events. Surviving witnesses talk about seeing things - monsters and swarms of bees. They describe sudden, overwhelming feelings of fear and rage and paranoia. When forensics makes its report, the mass delusions make more sense: it appears the bar patrons were exposed to a cocktail of chemicals and illegal drugs that could drive people into temporary insanity - if not kill them outright.

But that doesn’t explain who would unleash such horror - or why. Eve’s husband, Roarke, happens to own the bar, yet he’s convinced the attack wasn’t directed at him. It’s bigger than that. And if Eve can’t figure it out fast, it could happen again, anytime, anywhere. Because it’s airborne....

    "The story line over books"

    J. D. Robb has a storyline that goes from book to book about the lives of their characters. I found this book to be more important for that story line than the story line of this particular book. When I think of the book as I am writing this, the interweaving of these two themes or story lines was subtle. I usually think of her books as those that have my stomach in knots and those that do not. This book did not have my stomach in knots (usually when the antagonist is going after one of the characters is when my stomach gets in knots), although the crime was horrific. Needless to say, I look forward to every new installment in the In Death series. If you have developed an interest in the characters, you never want to miss a book.

    "I grew up on these books"
    If you could sum up Delusion In Death in three words, what would they be?

    Good plot turn.


    What other book might you compare Delusion In Death to and why?

    Oh its an original.


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

    Story telling is an art. She brings her art to life.


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

    Think twice before you go into a bar owned by this Irishman. His establishments get targeted alot. Or maybe that's because as Eve might say he owns half the Universe. The odds are just there.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope to see many more books. I would love to see Eve and Roark start a family. That could take up maybe 3 books with murder and mayhem and cornering the market on diapers too. It boggles the imagination. :)

    "Another good Dallas story"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    I love to listen to the Eve Dallas series and look forward to each new book.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I found myself more disturbed about the graphic topic of this book than ones in the past. I believe it was because of the believable terrorist attack aspect that made it so uncomfortable. That said, it is still a very good listen maybe all the more so because it was so imaginable.


    Do you think Delusion In Death needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Just more Eve Dallas

    "Narration is terrible!"

    Narration so badly done I couldn't get past the 3rd chapter. Ended up buying print version to get it read. Enjoy this series and enjoyed this book, although there was too much background on the story line and not enough involvement and description of the characters I've come to love in this series, nor was there any description to remind readers familiar with the series of the time and place. Readers unfamiliar with series would miss a lot with this one!

    "Another Winner!"

    This was an awesome addition to the series. J.D. Robb has a great imagination. As always, Susan Ericksen does a superb narration. I recommend the entire In Death series. Go Eve and Roarke!

    "A little disappointing"

    I'm always on the lookout for a new Eve Dallas book, and usually love her take on the near future and its technology. All of the plots are a stretch, but this one was hard to like and left me a little dis-satisfied. I could certainly do without the obligatory sex scene, and I wish there were an explanation of the urban wars! You can do better than this, J D Robb (for those of you who don't know, pen name for Nora Roberts). Susan Ericksen, as usual, is superb - I can't imagine a better narrator for these characters.

    "Another Entertaining Story by JD Robb"
    Any additional comments?

    Since I've listened to all of these books, its a given I enjoy them. There wasn't much new as far as characters and the plot was familiar. I'd love it if the author would add new and different twists to this series.

    Story
    "Not up to standard"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    Yes, because I LOVE this series but if you enjoy the relationship between Rourk and Eve, it is missing to a large extent in this book. I will say it is the first with a kind of "twist" ending. Was wondering where it was going when there was more than an hour left when the caught the "bad guy."


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

    The missing interaction between Rourke and Eve


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She is always great and so consistent.


    Could you see Delusion In Death being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Would LOVE a series but no ideas for stars


    Any additional comments?

    Please come back with the next one having more of Rourke and Eve.

    "A solid Eve Dallas story"

    Not my favorite, but definitely worth it. Can't wait for the next "in death" book.

    "Great story"
    If you could sum up Delusion In Death in three words, what would they be?

    Gets better and better


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like to see Eve and Roarke develop in their relationship. I have also really like Somerset throughout these books, and it was great to learn a little more about him as well.


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

    Susan Ericson narrate all the In Death books. She doesn't disappoint with this one, either.


    Any additional comments?

    Every six months I can't wait to listen to the next installment.
