Publisher's Summary

It was one of Eve Dallas’s earliest takedowns, back in her uniform days. A monster named Isaac McQueen had been abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. Thanks to Eve, he wound up where he belonged, removed from civilized society in Rikers. But he’s not behind bars anymore.

After his escape, McQueen has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, preying on the young and innocent - when necessary, with the help of a female partner all too willing to be manipulated and to aid and abet his crimes. His other goal: to get revenge on the woman who stopped him all those years ago, now a high-profile lieutenant in the NYPSD and married to one of the city’s richest men.

Commanding Eve’s attention with a chilling and brazen crime, McQueen sets off the chase - forcing Eve down a road marked with blood and tears, a road that eventually leads southwest to Dallas, Texas, the home Eve fled long ago. And each new twist brings her closer to the harrowing memory of when she wasn’t a hardened detective but a vulnerable girl just like McQueen’s innocent prey. As her husband, Roarke, tries to rescue her from the nightmares that claw at her mind, and her partner, Peabody, doggedly works to support her, Eve must confront - and call upon - the darkest parts of her own soul in order to survive.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Right in the middle

The plot moved along and then the story hung up. It seemed as if Robb was trying to add time to the book and force everyone to hear issues that did'nt matter really. I expected the slog to catch up in the end, but then the story ended so quickly. A couple of chapters towards the end could have been eliminated without affecting the book or the ending. Susan Ericksen did a good job with the narration and the book was ok.

Loved it, couldn't put it down!!!

Like someone else said...the past few books have been lacking, and not as good as many other books in the series...but this one, was great, and I'm so glad that we got some more history on Eve. I did miss some of the usual characters...but the story was so gripping, that I quickly became absorbed in the fact that this was truly all about Eve (no pun intended) I plan to re-listen to it again...I love the narrator...she IS Eve...and she does a masterful Roarke. She makes every character distinct, and it is so easy to watch the movie in my mind as I listen to these books, because the sounds of the characters are so easy to recognize. As usual...can't wait for the next one. Bravo Nora!!!

A bit slow and redundant.

I have read or listened to all of the stories in the "In Death" series. Aside from a few that were a bit too dark for my taste, I have enjoyed them all. "New York to Dallas," was a decent story, but it was a bit slow and had too many flashbacks. In short, it was borderline redundant. If it becomes necessary for an author to update new readers on the past actions and events which affect the story line, a brief bio of the persons involved, at the beginning, should be enough. Going over the same material again and again in each new edition, for the sake of new readers, makes the storyline drag and become boring.

It was a decent addition to the series, but it could have been better. The narration was, as always, superior.

Nice try, but no cigar!

I love Eve Dallas. However, the author has tried too hard to connect coincidences in this book. I don't want to spoil the book for others, however the HUGE coincidence that happens really ruined this book for me. I also do not like that Eve always seems to have to have a personal fist fight or some kind of physical fight with every protagonist that she faces. It is enough for me that she is smart, unaffected and fresh. I do not need her to personally bash in the faces of the bad guys. So this book was OK but I think it would have been better if the author had not felt the need to include coincidences that are so unlikely and unnecessary to the story.

Eve Dallas is the best!

This listen will tell you a lot about Eve's horrific past and how strong she is to overcome it. Of course Rourke is there beside her. The case is about an escaped hideous pedophile. Susan Erickson owns Eve Dallas and all the other characters, it wouldn't be the same without her.

disappointed

Is there anything you would change about this book?

well yes and no

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I am not going to write anything here incase there is someone out there that still have not read this book, and do not want to let anything out.

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

I really like roake and of course the butler they both crack me up.

Could you see New York to Dallas being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

yes I would love the whole series made into the tv series

Any additional comments?

I expected a bit more with this one, considering where she was going. a little bit more recognition, a bit more of her past, I was disappointed in that part, since the whole series I have loved and listened to for years now. this was the only one that I was a bit more disappointed in. still a good story.

Too long

The "In Death" series has been one of my favorites by Nora Roberts, but this one repeated the plot premise over and over again - and almost pounded it to death. I am aware, as are most people, of the devastating consequences of sexual abuse of young children and teens.
This novel repeated that lesson ad infinitum from the perspective of the protagonist and most of the other characters in the novel.
This lesson is one that the public needs to know. I suggest Ms. Roberts use other venues to emphasize her point.

like a soap opera

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

no

What do you think your next listen will be?

Robert Wilson

How could the performance have been better?

Perhaps a man narrating

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

anger and disappointment. I wish that I had not kept reading and had moved on to something better. There are too many books out there to listen to this kind of melodrama and soap opera plot

this is seriously poorly written

i have listened to 457 books to date; this is one of three I could not get through. I am just shocked that so many people gave it good reviews. I suppose if you do not mind high school level writing, it may appeal to you. The author cannot help but just continuously beat you over the head with bad writing and cannot let the story define the characters. The story itself is ok and the narration is not that bad. I would highly suggest staying away from this one.

Disappointed

The narrator gets in the way of the story. Her performance is far too strident for me.
