No affairs. No criminal connections. No DNA. No clues. Eve Dallas may be the best cop in the city - not to mention having the lavish resources of her husband Roarke at her disposal - but the Swisher case has her baffled. The family members were murdered in their beds with brutal, military precision.

On one of the city's hottest nights, New York Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas is sent to Central Park - and into a hellish new investigation. The victim is found on the rocks, just above the still, dark water of The Lake in the park. Around her neck is a single red ribbon. Her hands are posed, as if in prayer. But it is the eyes - removed with such precision, as if done by the careful hand of a surgeon - that have Dallas most alarmed.

Would you consider the audio edition of Visions in Death to be better than the print version?

Yes because of the narrator bringing the characters alive.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes it was a disturbing subject but kept me wondering how it would end.

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

She is fantastic!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I almost did
