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....

    Story
    "Pure J. D. Robb"
    What did you love best about Delusion In Death?

    Nora Roberts a.k.a. J D Robb is a master (mistress?) of creating great characters that one likes and villains that one can hate. You can't help pulling for the heroes in their trials. You know they are going to win out, but there is still the tension that makes it feel as if they could lose. The regular cast of characters is here in all their humor, intensity and charm.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a huge fan of Susan Ericksen. She can find things in a reading that I might not find for myself. More of a vocal actress than a reader she really brings the characters alive with her depth of understanding of the story and characters.

    Story
    "I love Eve & Roarke"

    I have listened to the series (35 books!!), well I think I am on my third time now!
    The characters are great, each one is interesting and comes to life as an individual as well as part of a whole in the stories. Susan Ericksen, well what can you say, there are a lot of good and even great narrators out there but she, at least with these books, surpasses everyone I have ever heard. Not ever narrator could do ever book justice, Ashford McNabb is the best for Maiden Lane series, but the In Death series would never, never, NEVER be the same without the smooth performance of Ms Eriksen, not to mention the distinct voice changes for each character. Kudos to Nora for the stories and Kudos to whom ever decided on Susan to narrate.

    Story
    "Too Much Isn't Better Than Just Right"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Delusion In Death to be better than the print version?

    As I do not read the print version of the In Death stories, I cannot fairly compare the audio edition to the print edition.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most engaging aspect of the story is the search for how the crime is committed. Once that is discovered, the entrapment of the perpetrator is a bit boring.


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

    Susan is a brilliant audio actor! She is very good at assigning characters appropriate accents, dialects, and even tempo to their speech. (The one exception is that all her Latino characters sound the same, which is not true to life.) Her performance gives every character a life that only precise and careful readers would or could do while reading on their own.


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

    Hate, from one generation to another

    What made the experience of listening to Delusion In Death the most enjoyable?

    I always love the stories, and the way Susan Ericksen brings all my old friends back to life....


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eve - She continues to grow and trust those around here - her interaction with Peabody and Mera continue to grow - she's learning to trust more than just Roarke in each book


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    I love that I can tell who each person is just by her voice.


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

    no - I travel by car each day and listen while driving


    Any additional comments?

    When is the next one coming out????

    Where does Delusion In Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    High,


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

    Any of the IN DEATH books, this is as good as the first, 2nd, 3rd. Just because she can still keep our attention after so many of the future crime books.


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

    I just love Roark.


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

    No just kept me intrigued


    Any additional comments?

    Just that these books need to keep coming.

    Story
    "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
