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....

    "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.

    "disappointing"

    I love JD Robb and this series....but this book was disappointing. It lacked excitement and Dallas and Roarke lacked chemistry this time. This story had great potential.. but it wasn't fulfilled.

    I have read romance novels off and on since i was 10. i started with woodiwiss, got turned off during the weird 80s and came back full tilt boogie with audible. i'm a knitter by trade and the subway/knitting/audible combo is nirvana right now.

    "still reading and loving every minute!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Delusion In Death to be better than the print version?

    Don't have time to read the print version. I listen to audio books as I knit on the subway.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eve! She's really evolving as a character and she turns what I think is an important corner here.


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

    She's amazing at her craft!


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

    It is between her moment with Mira after she had that dream and the one with Peabody.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy this series and am bummed to hear the next one will be next year :(

    One of the best In Death books and I've read them all. The interactions between the characters are frequent and extremely enjoyable. Story line was great! As always,Susan Ericksen's presentation was excellent. Thank you Ms.Robb,wherever you are. (grin)

    "Really a great series."

    What can I say, there isn't a bad one in the bunch. This was really good. Eve and Roark never disappoint. Robb has made characters that are so well done that at this point they are like old friends. Watching Eve and Roark evolve has been such a treat. All the secondary characters are equally wonderful and the plot always keeps you wondering. Hate that it will be another year for the next one.

    "Naration change"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    Yes!


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

    All of the In Death Series - the way the author has built the series around the characters makes you feel like they are in your life


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Ericksen?

    I wouldn't change her... In the past I have LOVED her (I have listened to the entire series 3 times)... this book, her voice is the same for each character, but there is something different with the flow or cadence - it sounds like she is emphasizing every word, and to be honest, it is REALLY annoying to me. I haven't listened to the whole book yet, but I have considered stopping with the audio and just reading it. I keep thinking it will either stop, or I will get used to it. I hope that something medical hasn't caused her change - if it is, then I am sorry... I am still having a hard time listening.


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

    absolutely! keep them coming!!


    Any additional comments?

    I have adored this series, J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) is spectacular in her character development!!

    Story
    "If you like American dramas....."

    The reason that I don't like American dramas is that the characters are predictable in many ways: heroines and heroes are always 'beautiful' - tall, slim, muscles etc. they always have an offsider who is not 'tall, slim, muscles etc in fact they are the opposite and are always shorter then the hero/ine with a slave devotion to their master/mistress.
    So predictable I don't want to even bother writing anymore...even the story line is predictable....this sums up Delusion in Death - end of review.
    PS
    The narration by Susan Ericksen was impressive - she does so many voices and characters - quite amazing.
