Publisher's Summary

Conducting a top secret investigation into the death of a fellow police officer has Lieutenant Eve Dallas treading on dangerous ground. She must put professional ethics before personal loyalties. But when a dead body is placed outside her home, Eve takes the warning personally. With her husband, Roarke, watching her every move, Eve is drawn into the most dangerous case of her career. Every step she takes makes her question her own sense of right and wrong - and brings her closer to a confrontation with humanity's most seductive form of evil.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    "Consistently Incredible"
    What did you love best about Ceremony in Death?

    I've been a cop almost 26 years and although her setting is futuristic, cops remain trie to their character. I'm loving the development of Peabody and Eve's role as mentor.

    "Satan & Witches"

    Too dark and menacing. Didn't even get past first few chapters. Returned it for a refund. Very disappointed

    "Technical issues have pretty much ruined this book"

    The story is great - the performance is quite good I think....but technical issues have destroyed my enjoyment of it. I have downloaded the book 3 times with the same result - choppy narration with frequent missing words or garbled paragraphs. I have never been this disappointed in an Audible product. I will probably request my credit back.
    If your copy is working all right - please do enjoy this story - it is well worth the time.

    "Secondary Characters were my favorite."
    Any additional comments?

    These are not "heavy" storyline books, but are fun to listen to. Peabody and Rourke were my favorites in this one with their subtle humor as well as the magic/evil aspect. As always, the narrator makes these books their best!

    "Not my favorite in the series"
    Where does Ceremony in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book probably ranks 3 stars compared to all the other audiobooks in this series and 4-5 compared to any other audio book. I love Susan Erickson.


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

    I'm not a big fan of this storyline, OR Eves actions and behavior in this book. In all honesty she frustrates the hell out of me in this book. She is so bigheaded and stubborn.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Jamie tries to break into the house.


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

    No. I kept having to turn it off because Eve was peeving me off.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read this book, and listened to it on audio once already. I am currently making my way through the series again on audio and have to admit this is not one of my favorite in the series. Eve has always been very single minded and focused. But it bothers me in this book (and others as well, but particularly in this book) how she thinks she knows who the murderer is and just hammers at them. She has no regard to how her actions will affect the people she is hammering, they are innocent of all crimes but she beats them until they are broken because she wants it to be them. The way she goes after Chaz makes me want to smack the hell out of her. The way she snaps at Peabody for having an opinion makes me want to slap the hell out of her. And in all honestly has made me distrust the police in general. Because I know this is how “real” police officers are. They get their teeth into something and refuse to admit that they may be wrong. Instead of trying to find the truth objectively, they try to find the truth to support their opinions. Even though in each book Eve finds her man she manages to screw up other people’s lives in the process, and she just doesn’t care. She makes a comment in the book that she “isn’t a good person” and in some areas she is right, she isn’t. BUT with all the frustrations her actions bring me in this book I’m still addicted. LOL

    I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.

    Story
    "Sex attempting to cover up implausible situations"

    I've listened to a few novels byJD Robb recently. I think I'm done listening to her because there's nothing remotely interesting about the protagonist and her husband having sex every day in every way with each encounter detailed to the point that I finally figured out I could fast forward and save myself the exasperation of wondering why the reading had to know every touch, every kiss, every groan, every orgasm, in every way possible. Really? All Roark has to do it touch Eve and she has an orgasm that leaves her shakking but not finished. I mean shouldn't he have to do something besides lay his hand on her?
    Eve being abused as a child doesn't give her carte blanch to be caustic and rude to everyone around her, even her friends and husband. The story lines are shallow and the plot needs more development. There are some interesting moments but Robb needs to use the sex spaces to develop more intrigue and deeper writing.

    I can't believe how addictive these books are. I can sit for hours listening to them. It is very well done.
