Publisher's Summary

In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it.

Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve.

But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation. Determined to start working out as hard as she grills suspects, she chooses to do it at the old, rarely-used gym at Central. After a grueling workout, she squeezes into one of the narrow shower stalls, happy to have the place to herself. Just after she shuts the water off, the gym door clatters open - and while she cringes inside the stall, trying not to make a sound, Peabody overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. References are made to delivering product, and a house in the islands, and someone named Keener who’s supposed to look like an OD. It doesn’t take long for a naked and vulnerable Peabody to realize that both officers are crooked - guilty not just of corruption but of murder as well. Fortunately, the two clear out of the locker room without realizing there was a witness.Eve Dallas may have trained Peabody well - but this is too dangerous for one person to take on alone. Now Peabody, Eve, and her husband, Roarke, must try to get the hard evidence they need to bring the dirty cops down - knowing all the while that the two have already killed to keep their secret, and are no doubt willing to do it again.

I Love this Series

I don't really write a lot of reviews but I totally love this series. I have listened to every one and I am never disappointed. Both the author and narrator are fabulous and they release the books at a frequency that has you missing the characters just a bit but listening to the next book is like seeing a good friend after having a busy quarter at work.

Keep 'em coming!!!

One of the best "In Death" books!

This is one of the best In Death books! Entertaining storyline that will keep you listening. Nora and Susan Ericksen - the dynamic duo!

A to the MAZING! Good job!

This is the best book in the series. I started listening to them in August, and this is without question the best. Specifically, the last hour is H-O-T. I loved this story. I hope that we get a good (quality) movie in the future. Seriously, BRAVO.

One of her best!

I was disappointed with the last couple of "in death" stories that came out. I was beginning to fear the series was drying up, but "Treachery" is one of the best!

Great Book!

JD Robb never disappoints! I highly recommend this audio-book because of the fascinating story and an outstanding performance by the narrator, Susan Ericksen. In fact, I can't wait for the next installment of the Eve Dallas saga.

One of her best!

The story seemed to me like it combined all the things I love most about the "In Death" series. All the interactions between characters, all the personality traits, all the triumphs and heartaches. And I love Susan Ericksen's narration. To me she IS the voice of Eve. I was marginally disappointed with the last one, but it feels like J.D. Robb is back in form with this one.

Team Robb and Ericksen Does it Again!!

I really love this series. I appreciate the growth the characters show in each new tale. This is one of my favorite in the series and I'll definitely give it another listen. For me the characters are as much of a drawing point as the story itself. I think this book was really well balanced in showing the growth of the characters (mainly Eve of course) as well maintaining the quirkiness and oneness of the team as a whole.

The narration by Susan Ericksen is a key component for my love of this series as she vocalizes the personalities and emotions of the characters and situations in the books. Some label her as being a dramatic reader and count it as a negative - however I see that as a major plus! I listen to books for mental escape not to hear someone read. Very few narrators can achieve that or become so essential to a book that they ARE characters. I can't begin to imagine these characters without hearing them in the voice that Susan created.

I think JD Robb/Nora Roberts should be applauded since she knows how to keep a series going. Other authors should take a page out of her book when it comes to releasing new titles. I'm very selective it what read or listen too - when it comes to narrators and authors - I'm sick of having to wait 1 - 2 years before an author publishes a new work. So, JD and Ericksen...keep it comin'!

A Dreary High School Play

Oh J.D., how dear is cop-mission to a lady-officer besotted with truth, dedication, goodness, and virtue? . How many times will you have her preach these dear things at us to separate a couple of gooey sex scenes kidnapped from treacly bodice-busters? "Treachery In Death" is a gaggle of speeches held together by a chicken-wire of police-procedure.

I never listened to J.D. Robb before this one came on sale. Nope, never will again. It's said that Robb is a pseudonym for a writer with a big-foot brand name. Whoa, there's a brand to avoid. As for Susan Ericksen… Is that the way she thinks men sound? Maybe she gets better when NOT acting out what bores like the cast on a secondary-school stage performing a "story" written by a team-assignment to a junior level English class. Oh, and there's a tediously predictable car-fight thrown in to make credibility go PHWANG! with the subtlety of a piano pushed from a balcony.

Nope, didn't like it. Should have been named, "Treacle In Death". No wonder it went into the Audible remainder bin.

Blah, blah, blah -

I love most of the "in death" series, but this book is just to put it simply...boring. Truly disappointing. I just gave up on my second attempt to listen to it in hopes that maybe I just didn't get it the first time. No such luck. The majority of this story is listening to Eve or other sub characters go on & on & on about one topic or another. No real action, no real mystery, no real romance. If you enjoy listening to Eve go off on her long winded, self-righteous tangents than this would be a book for you.

Shallow

New to this series and very much wanted to like it. Though the story moves along at a good pace, the story was what I would expect out of a one-hour, police procedural (and not a clever one at that). The characters are one-dimensional with the villan barely fleshed out. The dialogue is mostly predictable. Character motivations are easy stereotypes and the futuristic setting seems like an unnecessary plot device as the story could be set in the present and not suffer for it. The narrator is talented but given the material (or perhaps the direction of the production?) the narration - of the heroine in particular - is at times strident.

Having said that, the series could be a fun beach read.
