Publisher's Summary

At the luxurious Roarke Palace Hotel, a maid walks into suite 4602 for the nightly turndown - and steps into her worst nightmare. A killer leaves her dead, strangled by a thin silver wire. He's Sly Yost, a virtuoso of music and murder. A hit man for the elite. Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows him well. But in this twisted case, knowing the killer doesn't help solve the crime. Because there's someone else involved. Someone with a more personal motive. And Eve must face a terrifying possibility - that the real target may, in fact, be her husband Roarke.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Excellent Characters and Storyline

I have been going through this series in order and found this book to be one of my favorites. It allows us to see into the characters of the books even more. I love meeting friends from Rourke's past! This book had me guessing until the very end! Great read (or listen).

Great series, fun fantasy, great characters

I love the narrator of these books and can't understand why many don't like her. I notice in the next book the reviews complain about her change in reading style and I can't help but wonder if she read some of the reviews and decided to try something new. I have listened to them in order and have grown to love Eve and Roarke and Peabody and McNabb and all the rest. Susan Erickson if you read these reviews, just stick to your style. I love it and feel like I'm putting on a comfortable robe for a good escape into fantasy and adventure when I start a new Eve Dallas book.

J.D. Robb & Susan Ericksen a 5* recipe

Would you listen to Betrayal in Death again? Why?

I am an avid reader so for me to purchase an audio of a book that I've read it has to be special. Betrayal In Death is another great audio. I have listened to J.D. Robb's in Death series multiple times and am still entertained by Susan Erickson's characterizations. Out of 44 in Death books with the 45th Calculated in Death due in Feb. 2013, I am rarely disappointed. This one's a keeper!

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

I have read all the in Death series multiple times and do purchase the unabridged audios of the most interesting reads, this one made the list. Betrayal in Death has a fast paced plot, with lots of investigative action and trademark Eve & Roarke byplay. With a surprising guest Robb gives us another treat into Roarke's interesting past. I love the supporting characters and Robb teases us with more Summerset/Eve interaction. The Feds get involved in this one and Eve kicks butt!

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

Susan Erickson's interpretation of the text and characters is spot on, she keeps it believable. Erickson must have a multiple personality disorder because I could swear that they 'exist'. Erickson doesn't forget which character she is speaking for and stays within their personality. Great job.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Robb spent a great deal of time with the plot of this crime and it shows, I laughed and cried but to tell you why would spoil the story.

Any additional comments?

Believe me when I say this audio would be a positive addition to the in Death fans and to those who are new to Robb a great start. If you need to judge my taste, some of my other in Death favs were: Survivor, Treachery, Kindred, Vengeance and New York to Dallas. <br/><br/>

One of an early in series goodie!

A early work in the in death series that brings all characters along nicely. I do love how Eve and Company grow with each book and Nora Roberts makes it feel realistic.

Another great book!

In this book, we get to see a piece of Rourke's past and meet an old pal! I love the way the characters' stories are slowly related in each subsequent novel.
