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.

    "Love this series"

    Always a great listen. Eve Dallas is a kick ass heroine and Rourke is super sexy. Susan Erickson is a great narrator. LOVE THIS SERIES!

    Story
    "The narration made me crazy"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A narrator who didn't try so hard to create various accents at such a shrill pitch


    Has Thankless in Death turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No because I really enjoy the genre.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Ericksen?

    I don't know specifically who should have narrated it, but this narration spoiled it for me.


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

    The story was OK, the evil of the villain, and the dedication of the lieutenant.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first book I have read by Robb and I might try another sometime, but not soon.

    Story
    "Fantastic as always-5 stars in all categories"

    I loved the connection of family & justice. I loved that despite being orphaned, Dallas, Rorke,and Nixie had all found families of their own. It also was real, and told the all too true story we see & hear each day- namely that we are ungrateful for our blessings. We forget to acknowledge that we don't accomplish anything alone. And we are reminded that there are those out there who refuse responsibility for their actions & actually think they are entitled to whatever they can grab, regardless of the fact that their desires are impacting others sometimes to death.
    My bucket list has been the goal of thanking as many people as possible for their gifts of entertainment or artistry over the years. So, thank you, Nora Roberts for this series. I've enjoyed your work throughly. Your books are one of the few that I read again & again. They are also books that I think highly enough of to recommend to others. Even got my daughter to read again! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    "Not usually a fan of this genre, but..."
    What made the experience of listening to Thankless in Death the most enjoyable?

    I loved the narrator- She really does a great job of bringing characters to life without being corny. I don't usually gravitate toward this genre, but this series continues to get great reviews so I checked it out. I found this story quite enjoyable, and I will continue to explore the series.

    "Not The Best of Eve Dallas"

    I'm a huge fan of this series. I've listened to almost all of the books at this point. I think Susan Ericksen did an awesome job as usual bringing the In Death characters to life in this book. However, the story itself was not up to par. The interactions between Eve and Roarke were relatively flat but I could have gotten over that. It was the amount of time spent in the mind of the killer and in detailing his torture of the victims. The torture of a dog and a little old woman just pushed me past my breaking point. I couldn't stick it out. It may be because it reminds me too much of the man who just murdered two bright young journalists in southwestern Virginia. Regardless I would caution even the most devoted Eve Dallas fans to think twice before listening to this book.

    "Great story"

    Enjoyed this book. It was the first one I ever heard or read in the series. I will be sure to read or listen to the rest of the series.

    "Mindless stuff"

    For me one of the worst audio books I have listened to. I did not find any redeeming qualities.

    "Great story theme, but dragged out"

    The concept of this story is great, but mechanics of it just seemed to drag on
    But I love Eve Dallas and keep reading on
