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 love the audio editions because I travel so much. Although I do have to admit that I occasionally listen to them when I'm not traveling - and this was one. Since I listen to the unabridged versions, it's the same as reading the book, and the different actors are portrayed wonderfully by Susan.
I would compare this to other "in Death" books. It's a series that I love.
There were several new characters in this book and she does a great job with the voices.
This book was so good, I listened to it when I wasn't travelling - but because I couldn't put it down.
Yes, I usually like this book and series
Not sure..I don't know why I did not enjoy this book as much as the others.
Susan Ericksen is a master of the voice of the characters. While I read many books, I would not want to sacrifice hearing the various individuals in the story. It truly enhances the mystery and the experience.
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
Another great book in the series- but whilst I'm not prude, I still feel the detailed sex scenes don't add to the story line at all, and could be tuned down somewhat...
"Another great Dallas book"
Bit long winded at the end, rather far fetched and unbelievable. Both clever criminals exhibited amazing stupidity at the end.
"What a body count"
I really enjoyed this book. Another fab story that I couldn't stop listening to. I always love when Eve shows her more vulnerable side and speak to the Doctor about it.
"J.D. ROBB - DELUSION IN DEATH"
Once again J.D. Robb brings back the usual group of characters in yet another exciting, sexy thriller. For true fans not to be missed.
"Delusion in death - J D Robb"
I really love this series of books. The characters are believable and develop along with the stories giving you a feeling that you actually know them so well.
Each plot is unique and well thought out and I eagerly await each new story of the cases of Dallas and Rourke and it is intriguing to see how the author thinks the future will work out.
I recommend this to fans of fantasy, suspense and romance as it ticks all those boxes beautifully
"Delusion In Death"
Brilliant again, another compelling "Dallas" story. Again the author portrays her character's well, and spins an fascinating story. If you have not read this one yet, do so. I used the audio version and once again Susan Ericksen does an excellent job.
I look forward to the next book.
