Publisher's Summary

Amaryllis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but she's been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she's taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn't just "one of us."

Dallas's friend, Chief Medical Examiner Morris, had started a serious relationship with Coltraine, and from all accounts the two were headed for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that. After breaking the news to Morris, Eve starts questioning everyone, including Coltraine's squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve's husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on the dead woman's life back in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this case and their own painful, shadowy pasts.

The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve, containing Coltraine's guns, badge, and a note from her killer: "You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, I'll be sending yours to somebody else." But Eve Dallas doesn't take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that's a promise.

    "What more to say about J.D. Robb?"

    It is interesting when an author writes better as her pseudonym that with her true name...
    The In Death series has some books that are not so good, but what to expect of a series that has what? About 43, 44 books, counting the novellas...
    The narrator is great.
    I would like to have Roarke in my bed.
    And really, I would like to have the courage and compassion Dallas shows in every book.
    My dream in reality is to have the gift Nora Roberts or, in this case, J.D. Robb, has to put fantasies, thougths, words in paper. In my opinion, it is the most wonderful gift!

    "Amazingly Touching."

    WOW. I didnt think I would be able to pick a favorite. I thought they were all on the same great level for me but this one was awesome. I cried boo hoo tears and I laughed out loud laughter. This one had all the elements and alll of the charcters played their role. Big props to Susan Ericksen she makes the whole stories come to life for me again and again. I felt so bad for Morris and Alex hopefully they will find another love to heal their aching heart.
    The ending epilogue was amazing, Butterflies are very significant for me as I lost a loved one a few years ago and she loved butterflies so to say this one was touching is not saying enough. Keep em' coming JD you have me hooked.

    "Promises in Death"

    I love all of the In Death. I loved this one also. The one thing I didn't like was Peabody's voice. I don't remember her voice sounding like this from other books I have listened to. Other than that I really liked the book.

    Robb has another great hit with Dallas and all her crew. She has everyone in this book and we get to peek into their lives. the murder story is a good one and Dallas saves the day again
    a good series.
    Listen from the beginning and learn about everyone
    good stuff

    "Wonderful narrator, Great series"

    I have been a Nora Roberts fan since she first came on the scene writing for series romances (oh, so many year ago!). When she started writing her "in death" series I was hooked. Haven't missed a one and since they became available on audio my father-in-law has also become a fan. Listening to Susan Ericksen is a joy and a pleasure, her idividual voices bring the story to life. I hope she continues to narrate the J.D. Robb series because she is the best I have ever heard. Thank you!

    "This one grips at your heart strings and pulls!!"

    I love this series but this was one of my favorites. I really enjoyed the character and relationship development in this one. It made me laugh and made me cry.

    Story
    "another team member gets someone they love taken."
    What did you love best about Promises in Death?

    I like when Eve has her dreams with the dead. It is always a harder book to read when it is one of the team members loved ones.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Promises in Death?

    Eve dreaming and talking to Amarylis.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    As always, spectacular.


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

    I would love to hear these books all the way through but I like to pace myself, I like that I am starting with book one reading them in order. I like to savor them and can't wait for the next but I just will hate it when I have to wait for the next to come out.
