Publisher's Summary

When a murder disrupts the Irish vacation she is taking with her husband, Roarke, Eve realizes that no place is safe - not an Irish wood or the streets of the manic city she calls home. But nothing prepares her for what she discovers upon her return to the cop shop in New York City....

A driver for a top-of-the-line limousine service is found dead - shot through the neck with a crossbow. The car was booked by an executive at a venerable security company whose identity had been stolen. Days later, a stunning, high-priced escort is found killed at Coney Island, a bayonet stuck in her heart. And again, the trail leads to a CEO whose information has been hijacked.

With a method established, but no motive to be found, Eve begins to fear that she has come across that most dangerous of criminals, a thrill killer, but one with a taste for the finer things in life - and death. Eve does not know where or when the next kill will be, or that her investigation will take her to the rarefied circle that Roarke travels in - and into the perverted heart of madness....

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Dallas and her team can't be beat!

What did you love best about Indulgence in Death?

I love the humorous banter between Dallas and Peabody, Rourke, or Summerset.

What other book might you compare Indulgence in Death to and why?

I have tried to compare the "In Death" series to the "Women's Murder Club" series by Patterson and Paetro. Similar backdrop - super successful, female cop in a big city. But "Women's Murder Club" just cannot hold a candle to Dallas and her team. The drama, passion, and humor is just not there with Patterson and Paetro.

Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to all of the "In Death" series and Ericksen is ALWAYS on her game. She is by far the best narrator that I have ever heard for this genre.

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

All of the "In Death" series books make me laugh out loud.

Accent not right

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I enjoyed the story line. I have read all the books in this series this was the first Audible version for me.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I lived in NY for 20 years and I felt that narrator's protraction of the characters was way off. I especially dislike Peabody's accent. I couldn't get past this and probably will not listen to another audible book in this series. <br/><br/>

In Death Series

JD Robb had me hooked with the 2nd book in this series. I have spent most of my spare time in the last year listening to ALL of this series and I love all of the characters that have developed with each book. Mavis and Eve make the best if not the weirdest set of best friends!! And to see Eve develop from having no friends except Mavis into having a group of friends that are very diverse, funny, and I can picture myself right there in 2060 having a tube of Pepsi right with Dallas. Can't wait for the next book. Hurry up September!!!! And thank you to Jd Robb (Nora Roberts) for creating these characters to be part of my reading pleasure!!!

Weak performance

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

Not likekly

Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

Definitely not. She starts this book out with trying to do an Irish accent for almost the entire 1st chapter. She was so bad, that it ruined the whole experience for me, and I really couldnt' concentrate on the story.

Would you consider the audio edition of Indulgence in Death to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version. The audio version is done well.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Roarke. He has everything. He has a mysterious, dark past. Now he has bcome a law abiding citizen. He has money, a castle of a home. He loves Eve completely, unquestionably. He's sweet, kind, and understanding. He's also a genius in gadgets and in all-things computer related.

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

She does an excellent Irish brogue.

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

Yes but it actually took four or five sittings. It's difficult to sit and listen for eight or nine hours!

Any additional comments?

No.

More!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Lt. Dallas is tough, savvy, and a "cop's cop" Good detective work, believable.

What other book might you compare Indulgence in Death to and why?

Being that this one is in the future I can't compare. I typically don't read sci fi or futuristic stories but this was believable.

Which scene was your favorite?

In the shoe store with her partner, who's literally drooling over the high priced shoes. Their interaction is hilarious.

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

I laughed a few times.

Any additional comments?

Good enough that I downloaded two more of Robb's works.

I love these stories

What made the experience of listening to Indulgence in Death the most enjoyable?

My husband and I both love this series - so much so that we are making ourselves listen to other things to prolong the experience as we get closer to caught up!! The stories are intriguing and keep you listening. The time on long car trips just zooms by. Susan Ericksen really brings them to life. This is one instance where listening is far better than reading a printed book.

What did you like best about this story?

Continuation of the ongoing 'In Death' theme.

Which character ??? as performed by Susan Ericksen ??? was your favorite?

Susan Ericksen brings all of the main characters to life. She does an amazing job of differentiating them. I particularly like her Peabody.

Any additional comments?

If you haven't read an 'In death' book before - start from the beginning!

Worst reading I have experienced! Insulting.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Anyone who doesn't mind silly accents and innocuos characters.

What was most disappointing about J. D. Robb’s story?

Narration, accents, interpretation of Eva as rude and crude. References to futuristic technology such as

Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

Never.Why does Peabody talk like a mentally challenged woman right out of the film,

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

Boredom and impatience.

Any additional comments?

Story may not have been so bad but for the narration.

WOW! Susan Ericksen!!!

I wish Ms. Ericksen would narrate everything I read. If you read J.D. Robb, then go find other books narrated by Ms. Ericksen - you won't be disappointed.
