Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Eve Dallas puzzles over a bizarre suicide bombing in a Wall St. office building in the latest in the #1 New York Times bestselling series…

For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone. But after marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives, the headlines told of death and destruction instead. The NYPSD’s Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter - but what was the motive of the masked men?

Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn’t going to put the brakes on the merger. All it’s accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. Now, with the help of her billionaire husband Roarke, Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror, look at suspects inside and outside both corporations, and determine whether the root of this crime lies in simple sabotage, or something far more complex and twisted.

Interesting story and uniquely J.D Robb!

I don't normally read Nora Roberts but I own every book and book on CD written by JDRobb. In the past, I've found plots recycled (still loved them) but this is definitely not a previous plot recycled. It's an interesting, fast paced plot with the favorite characters are front and center. Highly recommended!

Another well done entry

Well done, as are all Robb books; in world building, plot, characters. There is enough basic info in the book description to decide if you’re interested in this book.
I enjoyed it and think it was worth the Audible credit.
Ericksen does a great job of narration and is the voice of the series.

One of the b st In Death novels

JD Robb has outdone herself! This fast paced book has some very suspenseful moments, with the comic relief. I can’t say enough about this wonderful book.

Good story kept me engaged.

Not too predictable. It had just the right amount of back story and the had a couple of twist.

Best of Recent In Death Stories

I always enjoy stories in this series, but I feel this one was a cut above recent entries. The interplay of the characters seemed more true to the established traits, quirks, and backstories. Of course, Susan Erickson did a bang up job embodying all the characters.

JD Robb at her best

It’s been a while since we’ve had one this good! Oh they’re all good and I’m totally entertained. But this one brought in all the characters one way or another. The interaction between our favorites. I couldn’t stop listening. Laughed and cried! Can’t wait for the next!

OMG!!! 5 Oscar's poor Eve

I love it. From start to finish especially the ending. Bella Eve is just adorable. This one had a different feel to it plus it had so much more than Dark. Summerset is back from vacation yayyy!!! Eve and Roarke have such great camaraderie now I love to see the sparks fly when they have to decide which side of the line they are on when it comes to the law then get pissed off with each other and have hot sex. Overall I really enjoyed this book.

The series just keeps getting better with each book.

I like learning more about Baxter and Trueheart.
Peabody had some great lines and interactions. Loved the Oscar's. Can't wait for the next book in 6 months.

Ninja woman LOL

She never disappoints. Excellent story and Erickson brings it to life so well. Robb can’t write fast enough even as prolific as she is.

Okay book

I read the book because I love the previous books but this one was not as good. The focus was too much on police work and procedures and there was little of Eve's personal life and group of friends. Only one interaction with little Bella, not enough Summerset and Dallas insults and it feels as if Peabody was an afterthought. Looking forward to the next book to see if my favourite characters play a bigger part.

Another InDeath great!!

I wait twice a year for my Dallas and Roarke fix...I was not disappointed,kept me guess who done it almost to the end..

I do think Audible books are all about the narrator..a bad narrator can ruin a good book.
I hope Susan stays the narrator for the in death series to the very end, I just close my eyes and the characters come alive. Other narrators need to follow Susan because she sure knows how to narrate a good book...

Loved it!

I have now read every single one of this series and I still look forward with anticipation each new adventure. All the familiar cast are involved in a case involving murders, cruel and unthinkable choices and a twisted motive that is thoroughly wicked. There's even a trip to the Oscars, but not for Eve and Rourke. They have a murderous duo to apprehend. I still love these characters and once again wait eagerly for the next case.

A great new addition to the In Death Series

I always get the In Death books on audiobook nowadays. I first read the series years ago when I got them out of library and really enjoyed them. Once I heard the superb Ms Ericksen’s reading of the more recent books I always bought the audio because she really enhances the experience of the books. Even if I go back and read older books on Kindle I hear Ms Ericksen’s voices in my head as I read.

This series has it’s ups and downs and some books aren’t as interesting as others but this is a good example of the series with an interesting set of crimes to solve but with enough Dallas and Roarke and their friends’ interaction to make you laugh. It’s also nice when there is conflict in friendships and relationships because all of the characters written in these books are strong personalities and there are bound to be clashes, which also keeps the books interesting.

I would say you might possibly be able to get away with enjoying the book if this is the first you read, but there is such a wide back catalogue that I would recommend you start at the beginning. You’ll enjoy it more. However, if you have read the books but not listened to the audio version, this is a good one to start with.

Another winner

I always think she can’t write another really good book but once again j d robb has. People are being blown up in their workplace by a colleague someone who seems to go crazy. What other reason can there be? Dallas will find out the reason for this strange behaviour. We finally get to the Oscars to find out about the book/film that has been haunting Dallas for months.
