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....

    "Classic JD Robb"

    Good story, as always. Suspenseful until the end. I didn't care for the narrator and how she portrayed each character. Overall, great story.

    Story
    "Delivers!"
    What made the experience of listening to Delusion In Death the most enjoyable?

    Unique story line. History of the Urban Wars which would have started about now. Progression of heroine in resolving the disaster of her own beginning.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very real feeling of the future world where the same old same old issues reside.


    Any additional comments?

    Probably one of the better "In Death" series. Good story. Plot interesting and unique. The main characters continue to interest one. I have read every book in this series and I liked this better than most. Kept my attention from beginning to end. Kept me up a few nights listening, too! She has not yet worn out this series and the rotating sub-characters remain interesting. I think you'll like it. If you are new to the series, this might be a good start as it is easy to pick it up.

    "WONDERFUL AS ALWAYS"

    What can I say--WONDERFUL AS ALWAYS! With each book Eve grows bit more into who she is to become. Susan Ericksen is the best when it comes to narrating this series.

    "Love the series!"
    What made the experience of listening to Delusion In Death the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the diaglogue and the narrator - who has (almost) always done a superb job of interpreting the characters.


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

    I liked this one a lot and felt it was as good or better than most in the series (although I did find the opening scene far too vividly imagined - I'm much better when the murder has already taken place). Can't wait for the next ...


    Any additional comments?

    The series is best enjoyed starting from the first book (which is excellent!) as the main enjoyment comes from the characters' development.

    Story
    "Running its course?"
    What would have made Delusion In Death better?

    Delusions in Death needed a better story. This one felt "pieced" together. We never experienced the thrill of the hunt or any real concern that people we cared about were in danger.

    The scenes involving the public subjected to hallucinogens seemed unbelievable, which is nothing new to this series, but we were given no help to suspend believe.

    I've enjoyed the characters in this series a lot and they need better plots to work with.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm going to listen to nonfiction. I'm curious about Walter Isaacsons biography.


    What three words best describe Susan Ericksen’s performance?

    Susan's narration make these stories come to life. Distinctive, convincinng, riveting!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Major disappointment.

    Story
    "How does she KEEP cranking these out?"

    Eve Dallas. If you haven't met her yet, go back to the very beginning. If you have met her, chances are you are here after 34 other stories of Eve, Roarke, Peabody, and the gang--and this one is one of the best of the lot!

    The interaction between Eve and Myra in this particular volume was a treat for Dallas fans. There is a nice twist in the mystery as well.

    Now.... when is the next one out?

    Story
    "The In Death Series Kills! (lol pun intended)"
    If you could sum up Delusion In Death in three words, what would they be?

    Spectacular Eve Dallas!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's not just this story, it is about reconnecting with all your favorite characters in the whole series. Just like the character Eve, I have adopted them all like a second family. Whenever I see a new In Death book come out I purchase it immediately, no questions asked because I know I will love it.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    Susan is Eve, ..and Roarke,.. and Peabody,.. and McNab.. and Mavis,.. and Bella. If she did no other series of books, I would say she was one of the best if not the best narrator's I have ever listened to.


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

    Bad Asses Beware in 2565, Eve Dallas and company is watching!...and waiting.


    Any additional comments?

    When is the next novel scheduled to come out?

    Story
    "delusion in death was almost my death"

    After reading so many good reviews of this story, I decided to give it a shot. The story was sort of interesting, with a fresh kind of idea, but the narration was just grating and over the top. Now, I understand that the emotions of the characters were supposed to be over the top, because of the circumstances, but the screeching, screaming, abrasive way that their words were delivered left me unable to finish the book, even after turning the volume down and preparing myself for another incident to occur. I JUST COULDN'T TAKE IT!!!!!!! (as Ericksen would have stated it- )

    Story
    "Another homerun!"
    What made the experience of listening to Delusion In Death the most enjoyable?

    Susan Ericksen. I love the characters that inhabit each of the "In Death" novels, and she brings them to life for me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Delusion In Death?

    The description of the carnage created by the drug let loose really made me care about catching the culprit.


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

    It's like listening to a play. She is my favorite narrator. She makes each character so individual and unique. Sometimes I re-listen to stories just to hear Roarke's Irish accent. She also gives pathos and emotion to scenes that make me care just a little bit more. She truly is a consummate artist and a very gifted storyteller.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series. Granted, some books have been more powerful for me than others, but overall, I love Eve and Roarke and those who inhabit their lives. They feel like friends and very real.
