Publisher's Summary

On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, a woman lies dead at the bottom of a brownstone’s basement steps, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.

A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the brownstone, she knows Marta’s murder is the work of a killer who’s trained, yet not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

Eve learns that on the day of her murder Marta was assigned to work on three audits, and begins to suspect that she was killed to cover up fraudulent activity. Eve is good at catching criminals, not crunching numbers, but luckily, she has her billionaire husband, Roarke, to figure out which companies in Marta’s files aren’t on the up-and-up.

When someone steals the files from Marta’s office, Eve must immerse herself in Roarke’s world of big business to figure out who’s cruel and callous enough to hire a hit on an innocent woman. And as the killer’s violent streak starts to escalate, Eve knows she has to draw him out, even if it means using herself as bait....

    "The Latest Eve Dallas book does not disappoint"

    I just finished up with the entire series, I read them one after the other. This book is along the same lines with the other books. Same formula different characters and settings. Before I go back and review the other 35 books in the series I just want to say that this series has not gone stale for me at all. There are a couple of disappointing books in there but with 36 books out there that's saying something. Overall I love this series and I DO recommend this series for any crime procedural/romance book lover.
    If I'm being honest I received the first book as a gift and was not sure i would like it because I am more of a fantasy/scy fi lover. But this series definitely delivers and with a punch. Susan Ericksen does an AMAZING job reading the book and giving each character their own personality which is a hard thing to do.
    So I guess what I want to say is if you are burned out on your current genre or you can't find any new books to read, give this series a go. It is definitely worth every penny/ credit spent
    Her first book in the series is "Naked in Death"
    HAPPY READING! (Listening)

    "JD and Susan Erickson awesome team"

    This was not one of my favorites as it was a little slow, but it was still a great story. I am addicted to this In Death series. Can't wait till the next one.

    "Another great In Death book!"
    Where does Calculated in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Way up there. I look forward to each new book.


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

    The audio was off. Sounded tinny. Susan Ericksen is great but the recording was very poor.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    This needs to be rerecorded. Don't use the sound engineer again who recorded this book.

    "Good, Solid Book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book, but only after having read some of the others in the series. This book was solid and a good listen, but there were a lot of details that were left hanging, which isn't usual for Nora Roberts. She mentions the villain has a mistress, starts to develop the character and... nothing. The book veers off and she never comes back to it. Very strange for her and a little perplexing, almost as if she changed her mind in mid story. Still a book I enjoyed.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    I love Susan Ericksen's performances - she's amazing.

    "Robb - Eve Never Disappoints"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Calculated in Death?

    Oh, the coat. The coat. And it did stop the stun.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    Susan has become the voice of Eve Dallas. Other series have changed narrators in mid-series, but I can not imagine it here.

    "Always A Pleasure!"

    The combination of J.D. Robb & Susan Ericksen is always a winner! I've read every one of this series and the stories never fail to entertain me. Highly recommended!

    "Not as good as others in the series but still fun"

    I agree with other reviews that this one just wasn't quite as good. I got confused with characters sometimes and the whole plot seemed a little contrived but I guess I wasn't expecting great literature. This series continues to be an entertaining one even with the occasional misses. I will always look forward to the next. And Susan Ericksen makes every character real. It wouldn't be the same without her.

    "Average"
    What did you like best about Calculated in Death? What did you like least?

    I love the In Death Series have read all 36 books, love the back characters as much as the main ones


    If you’ve listened to books by J. D. Robb before, how does this one compare?

    This one lacked the fast pace usually associated with the In Death Series, not as much action


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

    Love Susan Ericksen, she individualises If thats a word all the characters except for the one hiccup with peabody in an earlier series the characters that she portrays are like old friends


    Do you think Calculated in Death needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Bring on more In Death books, love them


    Any additional comments?

    I found this one slow, too many accounting details which got boring to listen too. Halfway through it I justed wanted Eve to get on with it with her ususal style
