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....

I think I'm addicted
This was my first series that I got audio .That was a few years ago when there were only cassettplayer and I have always like Susan Ericksens voice For me she is Eve Dallas
Love Loveeee LOVEEEE!! J.D.Robb!!! IN DEATH Series! I've Read Every Single Book in the series! and Susan Ericksen SHE"S an AWESOME Narrator!!!
Both J.D. Robb books and Susan Ericksen as the performer are always great. If you haven't read a J.D.Robb book, be aware the there is adult language and situations. Great mysteries! I love following the characters from book to book! Start at the beginning and work your way through. Google the "In Death" book order to read them in order. I've read them all.
And, with Susan Ericksen performing, it's like listening to a play.
I'm completely in love with these books...the gripping story lines, witty remarks, and outstanding details keep you wanting more!
When my younger sister learned to read'd beg me to listen as she brought words on the page to life. That's how I got addicted ....
surprised and delighted with how well this kept me entertained. exceptional for the series. lots of nice resolution on many fronts
wasn't crazy about the narrator, especially at first. Kind of grew on me, but her accents were a little too much, especially for Rourke. Rourke has a subtle 'irish lilt" when he's angry or - even more lovely - when in those passionate throes. He doesn't sound like a irish fishwyfe, which is exactly how he sounded on here sometimes - but you get used to it. Dallas doesn't sound like I "pictured" either, and poor Peabody. Argghh - she just sounded DUMB. Would rather have had a really good male narrator here, I don't know why, but a much more talented narrator who knows the books/characters seems needed here. JMO.
I happened upon "In Death" quite by accident and I'm so very glad I did. I just finished "Delusion" and found it to be a favorite as I waited to see who'd created the pathogen that threatened New York - and how Eve was going to stop him. I've looked forward to each new tale and to the steamy love scenes between our handsome power-couple, Eve and Roarke. Then there's Susan Ericksen. Seriously?! I've listened to dozens of audio books and no one could have made these characters come to life for me any better than this fine performer. I hope to enjoy many more offerings by Miss Roberts, um, I mean J. Robb, and S. Ericksen. Keep 'em coming, ladies.
