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.

    Story
    "When death hits close to home."
    Would you listen to Promises in Death again? Why?

    I would, as it's a well-written and well-performed example of a compelling series.


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

    Pretty much every scene with Morris in it is memorable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The brainstorming at the bridal shower scene was memorable.


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

    No, but it did make me feel much sympathy for Morris, who has always been one of my favorite characters of the series.

    "One of the saddest, but better books"

    I have read all of the In Death books. I really loved the first one and I really felt this one was as powerful. It is worth the credit.

    Story
    "Hollywood wake up....HELLO T.V series"
    What did you love best about Promises in Death?

    I loved the way it focused on the REAL friendship between Eve and Morris as well as the diverse friendships of all the SMART women


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes! Because of the raw emotions it brought out in me, I felt like I was part of the team myself. I hated being interrupted when listening. I couldn't wait to hear what was coming next


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

    The way she brings all of the characters to life just by the inflections in her voice. I ABSOLUTELY love Susan Ericksen. She is one of those narrator's that could read a phone book and make it sound interesting.


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

    I'm not sure what a tag line is, but just guessing....Maybe something like Eve Dallas and the REAL A-Team kicking some major ass


    Any additional comments?

    I love all the In Death series. I listen to them over and over again starting with the 1st book. I really don't get why some Hollywood hot shot hasn't started a tv series for these books. It would be so awesome. But then again if the right characters are dif from what you have in your head I suppose that could be disappointing also

    Story
    "Heart Wrenching and Bittersweet.."

    This book pulled at me hard. Eve and Morris' relationship has become close and trusting. It tore at me when Eve had to deliver such news to her friend, their relationship having grown with each book.
    But Morris is part of the family now and the wagons have circled, even as his patient and methodical mind begins the arduous climb to acceptence.
    I do hope in time that the depths of "Morris" and his character are plumbed much more and that his part in this series finds more of what he only briefly touched and began to believe in.

    In the end, you can only worry that his brief encounter with the opening bars of love, will find him again. He seems to me to be very complex with a deep warmth inside him, not often found in others.
    A warmth just waiting..
    Opal.

    "Another Winner from JD Robb"
    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ericksen does a superb job of giving every character their own voice and personality. No one does it better.


    Any additional comments?

    I really think that Robb did a great job of character development in this book. Morris has always been a bit character, but in this novel, he becomes a major focal point and Robb does an excellent job with bringing him to the fore-front.

    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    "LOVED IT!"

    This was great. There was so much humor along with the suspense. I just love all of the characters. The voices and accents are perfect. I don't ever want to run out of the "IN DEATH" series.

    Thank you both. You are wonderful.

    "Love/Hate!"

    I have mixed feelings about this one. I love Morris and so it sucked to hear what he was going through. It was nice to have him as a larger part in the book. The story was entertaining. Susan Ericksen did a nice job as narrator.

    "Good book, terrible narrator"

    I absolutely can't stand this narrator. It ruins the book. ESPECIALLY her voice for Peabody. It's so annoying it's hard to focus on the story.

    "You get TWO excellent deals here!!"

    I'm such a fan of Nora/JD Robb ~~ and even though I'd read up to the last few books, I thought I'd try them on Audio on Kindle. Wow!! Best decision EVER ~~ if anything, I've enjoyed them MORE listening to Susan Ericksen narrate stories I love. I've actually bought the entire series in Audio now, and am anxiously awaiting the next!!
    I have to say that you could hear her learning her characters, and there were a few books I was dissapointed in that she used LESS of her characterization ~~ but as a whole? She just keeps getting better at it ~ and she's already excellent!!
    And as far as the story? I'm never dissapointed in an In Death title, but this one was particularly good ~~ it's always more intense when there is a cop killing for Dallas to solve!

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
