Publisher's Summary

Two young children disappear from their East Side home in New York City, their nanny killed in cold blood. As Lieutenant Eve Dallas begins to unravel the crime scene and search for Henry and Gala MacDermit, she's drawn into the twisted mind of a kidnapper who will stop at nothing to take revenge. Horrific threats concerning the brother and sister hit far too close to home for Eve, drawing her back into memories of her own tortured childhood.

But Eve knows that there's no time to waste on the past, and with every passing hour her determination to bring the children safely home strengthens. Eve and her team find themselves following an electronic breadcrumb trail left by a boy desperate to escape the evil witch. Their investigation into the kidnapper's sordid past reveals violent coercion, ritualistic killings, and chilling bloodlust - making her terrifying plans for the children abundantly clear.

    "Short but Exceptional as always"

    Susan Erikson gives another spectacular performance as Eve Dallas and the gang. J.D. Robb manages to pack all of the excitement, intrigue and mystery of a full length novel into this "short" story. A must read for fans.

    "the narrator makes or break à book"

    the reader makes Peabody and Fenney sound like redneck, stupid cops.

    Dallas sounded so dry and bordeline mean to them.

    I almost did not listened to the book.

    cute twist on a faire tale

    "Great short read"

    This book is a continuation on the other stories she has written. I find they move fast and have fun analogies.

    "The best of the shorts!"

    Loved it! The best of the In Death novellas: tight, suspenseful, emotional. Narrator owns series.

    "Narrator missed the mark for me"

    The narrator and I just did not sync with this one. It was okay to irritating. Yes, this is subjective. My ear just could not buy into the way it was read and the different voices.

    "This entire series is great fun!"

    Pick it up anywhere in the series, the back plot is not that intricate. But just a warning, you will want to listen to them all!

    Story
    "Follows Roberts Pattern"
    What did you love best about Taken in Death?

    I am comfortable with In Death series and its pattern. It followed true to course but was much quicker and refrained from the usual love scene.


    If you’ve listened to books by J. D. Robb before, how does this one compare?

    It was better than some of the In Death series, was a little darker. It was a little different with the fairy tale entwined in the story.


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

    She did well and her accents were dead on. She brings out the characters.


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

    Cry some because it involved children and I felt for the parents.

    Story
    "An Afternoon Snack"
    What did you love best about Taken in Death?

    The story grabbed your attention and kept it. Given the relatively short length of the story, it was a quick listen.


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

    The plot was good, giving you glimpses of where it was going, but still taking turns you didn't expect.


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

    No. I didn't enjoy either the accents or the character voices the reader used. I thought the accents were poor and some of the voices given to characters made them sound dumb.


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

    I didn't laugh or cry, but enjoyed an afternoon of listening to a good book.

    I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.

    Story
    "Dallas to the rescue."

    The fascinating connection between twins is prevalent in this story. A fast moving short thriller that had a good premiss. I'm glad this was a short, reading about kidnapping children is not my bag but this was not too bad. Crazy, Silence of the Lamb, occult, genius takes them and it is up to Dallas's team to get them back before the witching hour. A twist makes it even creepier.

    I haven't been a fan of the short In Death books. This one is great.
