Alyssa takes on the extremely public assignment of providing personal protection for Savannah von Hopf, an old friend who is running for office. While high-profile, the bodyguard job seems simple and easy enough - except Alyssa is juggling her stressful leadership position with a new baby and a husband who is her subordinate.

When Alyssa receives several disturbing messages from "the Dentist," a serial killer she has relentlessly pursued for years, Alyssa must take action to protect those closest to her.

good book, not crazy about the reader

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

I love Suzanne Brockmann's work and, as usual, this was an excellent, action packed book. The characters are folks I've already met and I was fully satisfied by the story. Having said that, I really really really didn't like the male reader. His personal accent was distracting to me and there was no distinction between characters. It just didn't work for me and took away from my enjoyment of the book. I wish I'd read this one instead of listening to it. The female reader was good and I much preferred the sections she read. I really didn't understand the point of two readers. Oh well. Again, a really good book, but not a great audio version in my opinion.

Eve Dallas is one tough cop. She's got no problem dealing with a holiday reveler in a red suit who plunges 37 stories and gives new meaning to the term "sidewalk Santa". But when she gets back to the station and Trudy Lombard shows up, it's all Eve can do to hold it together.

first audio JD Robb

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 11-23-09

I've really enjoyed reading JD Robb's In Death series. I decided to listen to this one as I had a ridiculous amount of housework to do that I couldn't put off while I curled up with a good book. I enjoyed the listen. The reader does a good job with voices, accents, etc. Many of the characters didn't sound as I expected. Peabody is far more goofy in the audio and McNab is so very dorky. I'd also love Roarke's voice to be more manly. But she does a fantastic job with the accent and these mild concerns didn't stop me from ordering Kindred In Death, the newest JD Robb, from audible. The second listen was even better as I knew what to expect re: Peabody and McNab.
