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....

    Story
    "Terrible narrator"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I like J.D. Robb books but this narrator kind of ruined it. She did the worst Irish accent I've ever heard and she made the rest of the characters sound stupid.

    What would have made Delusion In Death better?

    no, I couldn't make it past the first few chapters. I thought this was a love story not a gory murder mystery.

    Story
    "It lost me!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I bought this book based on the rave reviews because I love mystery & thrillers. I haven't read any of the other books in the series as other readers have, so I'm not familiar about the characters, story lines, etc.

    There were things mentioned in the story that I just didn't get...J.D. Robb kept using the terms "links" as I suspected the equivalent of a cell phone. Why didn't she just used normal terminologies? Did I miss something? After all, the story took place in NYC in modern days, right? How the heck was I supposed to know that "links" were?

    Also, I wasn't impressed with the narration either. Rourke's Irish brogue made my ears twinged.

    I'm only a 1/4 way through the story, but I don't know if I can finish it! Very disappointing.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No

    Story
    "Loved the story, disliked the narration."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The voices portrayed appeared to be very strained and Peabody's voice was the absolute worst of the group. I've purchased many audible books, by many performers, but this narrator has ruined the J.D. Robb books for me and I will not buy anymore by this "artist". She really distracts from the story line. I will continue the Death series using the visual form of entertainment. I'm never disappointed with the Robbs' written word.

    Story
    "Why do I keep listening to these?"

    The premise of the books are okay, but I get so annoyed with the main character, Eve Dallas, and her negative & bitchy way, that I wonder why I keep listening to this series! Is it the narrator that causes the irritation, or is it the way the character is written? Whatever, if they would just back off a bit on the character's aggression, the books would be must more listen-able.

    "Not really a fan"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    I did not know anything about this author and went on the reviews. Not really my thing. I did not care for the narration and thought the story a bit obvious.


    Would you recommend Delusion In Death to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book as it did not captivate me or intrigue me.


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

    No
