Publisher's Summary

The year 2060 is drawing to a close, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It's a time for loved ones to come together. But sometimes the deepest hatreds seethe within the closest relationships, and blood flows faster than water....

For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it's a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood.

Other couples aren't as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son. Twenty-six-year-old Jerry hadn't exactly made a good impression on all the bosses who fired him or the girlfriend who dumped him - but they didn't think he was capable of this.

Turns out Jerry is not only capable of brutality but taking a liking to it. With the money he's stolen from his parents, and a long list of grievances, he intends to finally make his mark on the world. Eve and her team already know the who, how, and why of this murder. What they need to pinpoint is where Jerry's going to strike next.

    "Having A Very Hard Time Finishing This Book!!!!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have listened to hundreds of books since 2007 and to more than 3 books a month! This is my first review ever! I just feel a bit cheated and upset. This is by the way the first J.D. Robb book I listened to. I bought it based on the overall ratings of 4.5-stars but now that I'm having such a hard time finishing the book, I went back to actually read some of the reviews to check if it's just me. Out of the first 2 pages of reviews that I read (20 reviews), 5 of them rated it 1-star overall, 3 of them rated it 2-star overall and 4 of them rated it 3-star overall. So 60% of these reviews (12 out of 20) gave it an overall ratings of 1 to 3 stars. How is it possible that the total ratings of this book are 4.5-stars? lots of time is being waisted on blah blah blah and I'm also having a very hard time listening to the different voices by Ms. Ericksen and can't figure out the different accents and who's who. Yes, I understand that one of the characters is Irish but what I hear is more then one different accent, and they all sound more like Middle Eastern / Turkish accents. No one has just a simple American accent. I feel that this book could have been written/read in about 10 hours rather than 13 hours and 22 minutes. Anyway, as I said it is my first review ever and I feel that I'm now blah blah blahing....I'm just really frustrated. I'm going to attempt to finish the book but am not sure if I'll be able to. Thanks


    What was most disappointing about J. D. Robb’s story?

    Many parts of the story are about nothing (remember the Seinfeld episode?) when one or two of the characters are just going on and on and saying nothing.


    What didn’t you like about Susan Ericksen’s performance?

    I'm so sorry to say this (my apologies Ms. Ericksen) but I didn't enjoy her performance.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I am going to try some other books by J.D.Robb. I'm sure I'll find some better ones. In fact I already have another one in my library.

    "Very poor choice"

    Gratuitous sex, outlandish and abhorrent violence and generally improbable plot. The constant use of foul language was off putting. The narrator shrieked and screamed and her attempt at voice changes was often laughable and annoying.

    If you could sum up Thankless in Death in three words, what would they be?

    A Good read (listen)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Peabody


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Best narrator there is!
    Without a doubt.


    If you could take any character from Thankless in Death out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Roark, he is gorgeous and could pick up the tab.

    "great read"

    I find myself so irritated at Jerry every time I listen to this book. what a whiny brat! This is partly due to the great writing and partly due to the narrator.

    Grab some headphones and hot tea and drift away in the world with Eve and Roarke.

    "She always writes well"

    Grand as usual but still wish it was more R or X than XXX rated! The mysteries are good enough with less...I know because I have started skipping some of the more expletive sections.

    Am I the only one who feels this way? It's the only thing that stops me from giving her books 5 stars constantly.

    "Unbelievable!"
    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    One of Susan's best performances.


    Any additional comments?

    To say that the series just keeps getting better is really an understatement. This particular installment of the futuristic murder drama pulls out all the stops. The author, through the narrator, brings so much emotion to the story that I could not stop the tears in some sections of the narration, tears of happiness as well as regret.

    When you couple a truly despicable villain with a main character that is strongly moral, the interplay makes for a dramatic story. In this case, the villain appears to be a normal guy who simply lost control... until the story develops and shows his true character. He's easy to detest. On the other hand, you have Eve Dallas and Rourke who take on evil on a regular basis and become their own superhero team. The interesting thing is that they come across as real people, despite the circumstances, and the reader can easily identify with their story (despite the interesting backgrounds of both characters and the financial status of the handsome Rourke).

    While the reader can certainly enjoy the stories on their own, it is truly an experience to watch the characters develop over the series. The readings by Susan Ericksen are frankly amazing. She develops each character, including accents and inflections, throughout the series. It's also amazing the level of detail built into the plot. Each time that I think Robb can't possibly beat a particular storyline, she surprises me with yet another installment. Hopefully this series will continue well into the future.
