Publisher's Summary

In a time when technology can reveal the darkest of secrets, there's only one place to hide a crime of passion - in the heart.

The first victim was found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas had no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provided Eve with a long list of suspects - including her own lover, Roarke.

As a woman, Eve was compelled to trust the man who shared her bed. But as a cop, it was her job to follow every lead...to investigate every scandalous rumor...to explore every secret passion, no matter how dark. Or how dangerous.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Good"

    Not quite as good as the first but worth a listen. It was a bit to easy to identify the villain too early.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Good suspense novel"

    I purchased six books in this series during a 2 books for one credit sale. My intent is to use the books as "fill in listening" when I have nothing better to listen to. With 5 new releases for tomorrow, I can now move on to something more interesting. By the way, Susan Ericksen is an outstanding narrator.

    For those not familiar with Nora Roberts "In Death" series (released in the pseudonym J. D. Robb) it is set in New York City about 50 years in the future. It's not really sci-fi although it does include some reasonable computer technologies more advanced than current. This is book 2 in the series and was released in 1995. The series now consists of 43 novels and 11 novellas. The protagonist is police lieutenant Eve Dallas and her sex interest (she's not into love) and co-protagonist is named simply Roarke who is a common romance novel hero, handsome and wealthy. The novels in the series include lots of explicit/raunchy sex scenes and profane language, so if you object to such this series is not for you.

    I reviewed Novel #1, Naked in Death, in the series earlier this month and rated to 4 stars. Glory in Death is not nearly as good. All novels and novellas in this series are murder mysteries. Real fans like this one because Roarke is a murder suspect.

    "I can't stand Eve Dallas"
    What disappointed you about Glory in Death?

    I purchased the first 8 books in this series because I got a great price. I thought they were mysteries - I didn't realize there would be so much corny romance. I will continue to listen because the stories are ok, I'll just keep fast forwarding through the supposedly "steamy" sex.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. D. Robb again?

    I wouldn't buy a book at full price. I will listen to the ones I have already purchased.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Overly dramatic and she makes the main character seem really hostile - I think this is why I dislike her so much.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation.

    "Warning to serious readers--it's a romance novel"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I honestly can't understand why anyone would bother to read a second book in this series, after reading the first. But tens of thousands obviously do just that. That is the biggest mystery of this book.


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

    Yes! I never suspected it would be this disappointing and annoying. I don't know why people who read this author even bother to read at all. Why not just watch soap operas? I expect much more from books.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance could have been less melodramatic; also, she sounded like an actress from the 1940s, which I found particularly annoying given that this was a novel set in the future.


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

    I will allow that it is a promising sign that such an independent and competent career woman can be the protagonist of such a long and successful book series.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a romance novel that masquerades as a police detective/futuristic novel. It was disappointingly easy to figure out who-dun-it. And the romance was so shallow. The protagonist Eve Dallas is beautiful but doesn't know it, has no fashion sense, and is from a disadvantaged background. But she still snags the most eligible bachelor ever to exist! He is Irish, handsome, incredibly wealthy (a self-made man), but also so sensitive that he likes her cat. Dreamy! Ugh. And the sex is repetitive, several times a day--seemed like clockwork.

    "Seriously bad story"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

    No


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Likeness, Tana French


    Any additional comments?

    This is a seriously boring, poorly written, predictable story. I'm surprised at all the positive reviews.

    "Another good read about my favorite characters."
    What did you love best about Glory in Death?

    There is no doubt that it is because of the narrator Susan Ericksen that that one becomes so involved in these books.
    She makes the characters come to life and makes you feel you are at the scene looking and listening to each as they talk.
    She is so good at having a voice for each person as apposed to someone just reading a book to you.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eve as she is so down to earth.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    Every bit of it she is so good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You have got to see it and experience real drama.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read 5 of this series and will be buying all of them

    "Great read!"

    Just started reading Nora Roberts under this pen name, a colleague recommended her. What a great mixture of mystery, suspense and sci-fi. I enjoyed the character Eve. I've already purchased the next five books in the series.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Excellent Futuristic Mystery"

    In this book, someone's slashing the throats of prominent and successful women. Since the suspects include family friends of Lieutenant Eve Dallas' commander and Eve's lover, Roarke, this becomes a very difficult case for her.
    If you haven't read the first book, Naked in Death, I would suggest that you do that first, although this early in the series it's not as important. Just as a warning for those who have never read one of the In Death books, the mystery is not really the most important part in the book. I've heard regular mystery listeners complain that they were able to figure out who committed the murders long before anyone in the books did. That wasn't the case for me - I enjoyed the mystery element in this book - but the relationships are the reason why I keep reading the series and why I reread all the books. In this book, Eve has to deal with her problems with commitment in her relationship with Roarke. The way Eve and Roarke interact is wonderful, and Eve's gradual attempts at making herself more than just a cop are interesting reading. I definitely recommend this book and series to anyone who likes well done and well paced romance with mystery and murder mixed in.

    Susan Ericksen was excellent with the delivery of the story

    "That narrator was...."

    Sooooo dramatic. Her accents were off and she sounded very robotic. It was also hard to tell the characters apart because they all sounded the same. I don't know how long she's been at this but I am hoping she gets a lot better with more practice. If I hadn't enjoyed the storyline so much I would have stopped listening. I will not listen to another novel narrated by her. Time to ask the library to stock the entire series instead of just a few.
