With everyone around her talking about the supernatural, pragmatic Eve won't let rumors of ghosts distract her from hard evidence. The case becomes even more bizarre when it appears to be linked to the suspicious disappearance of a rock star eighty-five years ago. As Eve searches for the connection, logic clashes with the unexplainable. She may be forced to face the threat of something more dangerous than a flesh-and-blood killer.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Okay, you're hooked on In Death and you're going to buy this no matter what my review says. I get it - I ignored the bad review to buy it, too.
Here's the thing - it's bad. Really, really bad. Maybe Roberts had the flu when she wrote it. Maybe Ericksen caught it from her. But it stinks. The plot is laughable. Peabody, Meara, Roark and, it pains me to write this, even Dallas act so stupid you'd swear they couldn't solve a glide cart stickup.
So, all my fellow fans, go ahead and buy it. It's only three hours long, which means it's cheap, so do yourself a favor and spend the $10 in cash to buy it. That way, once you've finished it and need to get the bad taste out of your mouth, you'll still have a credit left to get a GOOD book.
I'm off to Born in Death with high hopes...
Oh - and if you hate this one, please come back and write a review...

I've had the impression throughout this series that Robb (aka Nora Roberts) interjects these "half" novels to sort of let her creativity loose a little and maybe get a little silly or write about something that the characters, otherwise, would never admit to, let alone do. For example, in this one, the murder looks like, and all the evidence points to the fact that, a ghost actually committed the crime. Roarke and Peabody and every one else are all into it, and get their kicks off the thrill of it. And Eve just stands firm with her, "Oh PLEASE!" attitude. It's a good break from the seriousness of the series, although it may get a little *too* silly at certain points. Still fun, though! And Lorelei King is brilliant as ever, even with the silly parts :)
Susan Ericksen's performances are always top-notch! Love her vision of the story and how she embodies the great characters!
Enjoying all of the story's in this series. I think Susan Ericksen is doing a fabulous job narrating this series and bringing each of the writers character to life for the listenener.
Denzil and Judy share this account. Some reviews (Bond and Sci Fi) are Denzil and the chick lit reviews are Judy.
Loving the whole Eve Dallas series, sometimes the short novellas leave me wanting more. But this one was complete and fun to listen to. Susan Ericksen does a great job on the voices even the "ghost". So fun to listen to Peabody getting the willies.
Not bad for a Novella, Dallas gets the prefect case for Halloween. Another person has died in Number 12. Radcliff Hopkins has been murdered in Number 12, and it has links with a murder that happen 85 year before. This is a good little story, it does not have as much detail as J. D. Robb's books, but it is a short story so everything happens quicker. Keep that in mind when you buy it.
I best liked this book because it was a little different and I especially liked the ending where eve had a confrontation killer and the writer left kind of a hint that just maybe there could be something unexplainable, even if there was no such thing as ghosts.
I liked the humor and I like the suspense throughout the whole story.
I listen to several of Susan Ericksen's performances and this one was really outstanding, the character that tried to portray as a ghost was transformed for person to ghost so smoothly that I could actually visualize the scene.
It made me laugh several times, my funniest moment was when Peabody was afraid to go into the haunted building and Eve made fun of her and then later Eve teases Roark when he expresses his belief in the building be haunted with ghosts.
This was a fun book with a good twist at the ending.
I enjoy stories of this kind...where there is a question of the paranormal and is experienced by someone cynical.
Eve's cynicism. Peabody's fascination. Roarke's interest.
I enjoy her performance with these characters.
When the killer is interrogated by Eve near the end.
Yes. If they were interested in this type of story
I liked it
I can't pick Susan plays them all so well they are all integeral to the plots
At the top but all the in death books are great
Finding out who did it
When Dallas saw the ghost and wasn't sure if it was fake felt the cold and heard her singing
Dallas does it again with the help of Roarke of course
