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....

    "Obsessed With This Series"

    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.

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

    Another great, edge of the seat thrilled by J.D. Robb. Would love to listen to all her books in one sitting!


    Any additional comments?

    Always look forward to Robb's next book as soon as I finish the last one!

    "The World Gone Awry"

    This book is very different in that it combines my two favorite book subjects: Murder mystery and Medical mystery. As usual, all of the characters are very believable and it is very easy to get caught up in the Science Fiction aspects of the story, all of which are completely believable. Highly recommend, particularly if you have never read any of the "In Death" series since this makes a great stand-alone book.

    "Delusion In Death"
    Any additional comments?

    Magic formula, huh? All the characters we know and love are in this story. Peabody, Roarke, Feeney, etc. Some have really bit roles, like McNab. There’s a new major role in this book, a federal investigator. Maybe a future series based on this character? Basically, a couple of grizzly murder scenes results in another obsessive search by Eve and her supporters, a few bad dreams, love scenes and showers with handsome Roarke … all familiar venues. If you’re familiar with the basics of the first 34 In Death books penned by Nora Roberts, and the well rounded band of sleuthers therein, you’ll be right at home.

    "Dallas Does It Again with Roark's Help, Of Course"

    I simply love Eve Dallas and Roark. Amazing that Nora Roberts can write so differently between this series and her other more novels. I've read a great many of them but love the J.D. Robb futuristic cop series. Maybe I just like knowing the characters and having them do the same thing in a different way.

    Anyway, this book is different in that there is a murderer out there but no one sees it happen. It's an aerosol vapor that makes people go into a frenzy and stab each other with forks or whatever they have near. Very scary since sometimes the local TV describes people acting in the same way without any poisonous gas involved.

    The book is predictable but we readers of the #35 book in the series expect that which is why there are so many books in the series. The difference in this series and others where the settings remain the same is the vitality of the characters. Eve is dangerous and lovely and a total dichotomy between the New York Police Lieutenant and the wife to Roark. To understand the dyanmics, one must read the first book in the series 'Naked in Death' and then you can read any book in the series pretty much and know what's going on. I happen to be a bit Obsessive-Compulsive and like to read things in order but that's just me.

    Susan Ericksen is terrific narrating since the book is told from Eve's viewpoint. She gets the accents and makes you think she is a tall, dark haired Irishman. Good read.

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

    When Eve does her reveal to Peabody about what happened in Dallas, I cried all the way to my kids school to pick them up.

    Would you listen to Delusion In Death again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to every book in this series over and over! It's taken me two years to listen to the whole series, I am going to miss Eve, Roarke, Peabody etc... I feel like they have become a part of my life! I am so used to Eve's city, I really don't know what I am going to do without them!

    "JD Robb consistently delivers"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend the whole In Death series if you're never read it. To really get the full flavor of the book you need to know the history behind it. That said, this is another gripping tail about catching creative killers. Keep in mind that it's set in a future world so if you have no tolerance for any inventiveness in scenery then you might avoid it. However, the world is a completely believable mix of current and 'new' technologies. The story itself is compelling and the main characters, as all are likeable and entertaining. A good read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The creativity of the murder weapon. it's believable and down right scary to think about that happening in the real world.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    The narrator smoothly moves between characters and narration. you can hear the voices being spoken with her slight changes in tone.
