Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

I love the fact that this story includes all my favorite characters. It has Nadine; Feeney; Peabody; Mavis; Trena and of course Roarke and Eve. The story also introduces Jamie who is in several other books - and he's a kid with a great mind and an iron will.
This story shows Dallas in many aspects - the woman; the wife; the human; the friend - and of course - the cop. She's a simply fabulous character that I never tire of hearing!
Well always Eve... but she does a simply fabulous job at all the characters - I always get a big charge out of hearing her do the exchanges between Treena and Eve... always a winner!
My favorite moment in this one was the exchange between Feeney; Dallas - and later Roarke. Where Feeney is 'done with her' because she obeyed orders rather than coming to him as a friend. Then later when Roarke explained what Feeney really means to Dallas. That whole part is one of my absolute favorite in this book.
Love it when the narrator makes a good book better.
One of the earlier "In Death" books, Eve Dallas meets up with a nasty bunch of devil worshipers who are responsible for the death of an older police officer and his granddaughter. Of course Eve takes this personally, and the satanists don't stand a chance in you-know-where.
There are good witches (Eve gets a Celtic protection talisman) and bad witches (Eve is attacked with poison fingernails) in this tale, which is a good fast read and sets the mood for Samhain celebrations (aka Halloween).
It always amazes me the research that goes into a book - even though this is way in the future, the crimes and relationships and procedures are "real" you don't feel like you are being fed nonsense.
Peebody is a character all by herself and her voice (thank you Susan!) just suits her so well - I find myself wishing her all the best and pushing her to achieve.
Summerset - the best. Mavis, totally a character on her own.
Eve and Roarke - have to continue reading - need to find out what happens - the suspence is killing me!
I do constantly! I recommend this series to most of my friends. We all like the cop shows on TV and this series reminds me of Law and Order or something.
YES. I love the incorporation of Wicca. Very good plot in this one.
II love them all! I cant pick just one favorite, but her narration of the men, Rourke particularly, is very impressive. I plan on getting all of the books!
Yes! I listen to them at work so it makes me excited to go back to work the next morning to see what happens!
Well actually I have listened to it again when I didn't anything new and enjoyed it the second time as well.
Don't usually read this type of ficton so can't really comment
You get to know the characters, it really is like there are different people telling thes stories
This story is one of the most interesting of the 'In Death' series. Witch craft is also a good story plot of murder mystery books. The white and the dark side of the witch craft is shown in this book. Roarke shows that he believes in some of what the witches are saying. Dallas shows that she does not believe in anything so out there as witch craft. The story takes lots of twits and turns that you are not expecting. It make a great quick story to lessen too. Or at lest it seems to go by quickly because the story draws you in and you will not wont to stop lessening. Susan Ericksen does a great job with the narration in this book, adds to the reasons why you just can't stop lessening to the book.
Edgy, Gripping and Sexy
Eve as usual wont give up never backs down.
Only other In Death titles she is brilliant in all.
When Eve found the body outside her home.Her personal outrage is put aside as she deals with a professional situation.
I absolutely love this series. Starting from the beginning, now to book 5, it is a continuous story of a hardnosed cop and her efforts to solve crimes and have a life. Her friends are dynamic and I laughed often. It has a little of that "this has a formula" feel, but the story is so intriguing, that it matters little.
No, probably not. It was interesting the first time but not enjoyably so.
This is not my favorite genre of books; I'm uncomfortable with the subject matter. I read it as a part of the this mystery series, to continue on with the characters and their story.
It is comparable to her others in this series.
