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....

absolutely, the reader brings the story and the characters to life so convincingly in each book that you really want to follow their adventures. The stories themselves tend to become rather familiar, but always exciting, and always to the advancement of the series in general.
as always the reader makes the characters individuals, even the male characters take on a distinctive persona which makes you relate well to all of them.
She has the ability to make each character, male or female become their own distinctive person and character, she is one of the best readers ever, male or female, she brings every character, male or female to life.
No, just enjoyed the way the story line moves along and develops the characters in this series
Listening to this book was an OK for time well spent. Most distracting was the not so great performance of the reader.
Voice was not up to par vs almost every other book I have listened to and I have listened to over 100 books. Her male voices were most distracting.
The story was good, but not great.
Reader. Painter. Newspaper columnist. Nurse. Humane Society. Lake life. Walker. Happily remarried - was a widow.
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.
Very real feeling of the future world where the same old same old issues reside.
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.
I love audiobooks. They are so convenient.
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.
I enjoyed the diaglogue and the narrator - who has (almost) always done a superb job of interpreting the characters.
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 ...
The series is best enjoyed starting from the first book (which is excellent!) as the main enjoyment comes from the characters' development.
Not at this time
Not listening to Susan
Not good, could not even finish the first part
Long time married couple who share this subscription and find it enriches our conversations. We listen while commuting, cooking, working out, and often drifting off to sleep!
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.
I'm going to listen to nonfiction. I'm curious about Walter Isaacsons biography.
Susan's narration make these stories come to life. Distinctive, convincinng, riveting!
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?
Spectacular Eve Dallas!
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.
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.
Bad Asses Beware in 2565, Eve Dallas and company is watching!...and waiting.
When is the next novel scheduled to come out?
