Publisher's Summary

When a high-society party is crashed by a naked, knife-wielding, blood-covered man who "thinks" he might have killed someone, Eve Dallas must track down the crime, and the criminals. Everything points to Satanic ritual, but Eve doesn't believe in devil worship.

Susan Ericksen brings these stories to life

I had read the whole series over time and thoroughly enjoyed each and every one. However when I started listening to audio books I found it difficult to lose myself in the story...until I found Susan Ericksen reading the JD Robb series. She has made each character a special personality. It's almost as if I have never read these books before. I'm enjoying Peabody and MacNabb tremendously. I actually laugh out loud at some of the conversations between them as well as some of Eve's comments. This is a terrific mystery series. There is 'edge of your seat' murder plots mixed with family humor and wonderful guest characters. I eagerly look forward to the next in the series.

Short story

I love all the Eve Dallas books. I wish that this one had been longer.

1/2 Books Not So Good

I don't appreciate the 1/2 books, the ones 1/2 the usual size - they seem short, abrupt, crammed.

I love this series!

If you could sum up Ritual In Death in three words, what would they be?

This book is a great listen, they all are!

Any additional comments?

I love this narrator, she is by far my favourite!

Interesting concept

Would you consider the audio edition of Ritual In Death to be better than the print version?

I'm not sure, I haven't read the print version. I think I would have liked to read the jacket and fly pages so I knew a bit more about what to expect.

What other book might you compare Ritual In Death to and why?

This question escapes me, I hadn't read any of this series before, so I had no idea what to expect. It was like going to a whole new country without a travel guide. I think it's time to find the first in the series to understand the premises better.

What about Susan Ericksen???s performance did you like?

She was fine, a good reader that understood the text.

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

There were some "yuck" moments. That's not an editorial comment, they were supposed to be yucky and they were!

Murder breaks up formal gala

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

Yes. It is short, just takes a couple of hours, but has a lot of action within that time. It's a good mystery story, too.

What did you like best about this story?

Eve and Roarke are both invested in the outcome of the mystery but on almost opposing sides on how to get results. They argue and get angry with each other but are respectful.

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

I always like Roarke's Irish brough the best but I though Detective Peabody was good, kind of comic relief.

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

It had it's intense moments.

Any additional comments?

No.

Could have been a longer story.

Would you listen to Ritual In Death again? Why?

Good, as usual. I enjoy this entire series.

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

Susan Ericksen is truly one of the best narrators out there.

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

I think the

Ritual In Death

A quick story, but a great storyline. The In Death Series just gets better with each book. I love the audible versions as much as reading the books.
