Publisher's Summary

Opening night at New York's New Globe Theater turns from stage scene to crime scene when the leading man is stabbed to death center stage. Now Eve Dallas has a high profile, celebrity homicide on her hands. Not only is she lead detective, she's also a witness - and when the press discovers that her husband owns the theater, there's more media spotlight than either can handle. The only way out is to move fast. Question everyone and everything...and in the meantime, try to tell the difference between the truth - and really good acting.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Death in a Theater

Would you consider the audio edition of Witness in Death to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print edition.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like a lot of the characters. Of the regular characters I like Eve, Roarke, Finney, Peabody, McNabb....Of the suspects I liked Anya and her story.

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the scene where Eve attempted to set up a romantic evening with Roarke.

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

No. It was too long to read in one sitting but I was anxious to get to the end to see the finale.

Any additional comments?

One of my favorites of the series.

Great Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Witness in Death to be better than the print version?

Yes.

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

Yes. This one had me guessing till the end. I enjoyed the ending - it showed a new side to Eve.

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

I love her

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

Unfortunately I did want to listen to it in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Great books, great narrator. It keeps me motivated to exercise, clean house, anything I can do just to listen :)

Loved it!

I actually liked this "in death" series better than a lot of them. Even to the very end, I was still unsure as to who was the killer. It was very well written and I love the way Susan Ericksen portrays Eve, Peobody, Roarke and all the characters. I just couldn't stop listening and immediately jumped to the next in the series. I just can't stop!

Witness In Death

These are the most enthralling books I have read/listened to. I listen while I am at work, in my car, shopping I just can't wait for the next one to come out once I have finished the one I am on. I am already on 2nd listening of the series so far and really enjoy the story lines.

Just loved it!

I loved the inventive story line by Robb and without a doubt, Susan Ericksen is and will always be Eve Dallas. These books aren't heavy but more entertaining and once you start at the beginning of the series... it's almost a sure bet you'll want to hear the next book. I just hope they put this series on sale again soon! I would by several more at a time.

Great JD Robb series

I love this whole series. Put in the future with a strong woman who is a police detective. With all her flaws finds the man of any womans dreams. Each book has a different mystery to be solved. Great characters!

boring and confusing

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I really hated this book. Rarely do I not finish a book especially an audio one.I disliked the way it was done with all of those different voices and some were goofy. I guess I prefer my books read like books but with some accents etc. I found that I did not like Dallas, primarily for the way that she was portrayed by the reader and Peabody came across as goofy.<br/>I realize that all of the above is what makes this series popular to listeners. Unfortunately not me. I do like Nicola Barber, Elia Mac Neal, Barbara Rosenblat, Davina Porter and David Colacci. All of who speak in accents etc. I would actually like to try another Dallas book only read normally to see if I would like the series.

Has Witness in Death turned you off from other books in this genre?

yes

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

no

Foul Language

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

Yes, I love the In Death series. But, I do have one complaint with all of them (so far). I really hate the fact that Eve feels she has to use God's name in vain REPEATEDLY. I really find this word disturbing and wish there was some way it could be removed or beeped out. I believe the story would be just as well written and read without this one foul word used repeatedly.

Narrator ruins it

I'm only half way thru this book. The story is good...I think...but the narrator is so over the top with her expressions that I can't take the action seriously. I'd love to hear this one with someone else reading it.
