Publisher's Summary

At exactly 7:30 p.m., Walter Pettibone arrived home to over a hundred friends and family shouting, "surprise!" It was his birthday. Although he had known about the planned event for weeks, the real surprise was yet to come. At 8:45 p.m., a woman with emerald eyes and red hair handed him a glass of champagne. One sip of birthday bubbly, and he was dead.

The woman's name is Julie Dockport. No one at the party knew who she was. But Detective Eve Dallas remembers her all too well. Eve was personally responsible for her incarceration nearly ten years ago. And now, let out on good behavior, she still has nothing but bad intentions. It appears she wants to meet Dallas again - in a reunion neither will forget...

Great Backstory for Roarke!

I loved the side plot with Roarke even more than the main murder, which is becoming more and more of a thing as the series progresses. The murders? Interesting. The side characters? Engrossing.

The voices are back

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

Love Susan Ericksen's narration! This is a re-recording of one of the first audio books in the series (no, they weren't done in order) and the voices of the characters are what we've grown to know and love.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Eve, of course. Why, because she's Eve Dallas.

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

Everything! She's very good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The hotels in Dallas.. the upgraded one from her childhood, and Roarke's.

Any additional comments?

I heard a year ago Susan Ericksen was going to re-record a number of the earliest recorded books, I think starting with Seduction, saying when the recording started, the characters were new to her and didn't know them as well. So good to see the releases are now coming.. Seduction, Reunion, Purity and now Portrait. Good move Brilliance audio!!

The Best author for Scii-fi and Romance

Nora Roberts (writting as JD Robb) delivers yet again in creating a realistic sense of what the future may hold while engaging the reader in a fascinating detective story. Flying cars, pedestrians on glides instead of sidewalks and the craving for a "tube of pepsi" or a meal from the "auto-chef" are all integrated seamlessly into the narrative. Like the best police partners, the narrator too does an EXCELLENT job allowing the reader to imagine each character. She is one of the few narrators for whom I am a groupie and would listen to any story she performs. I am so glad she consistently reads for this series.

Among the best in the series

What made the experience of listening to Reunion in Death the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the introduction of Peadbody's parents! The characters related to the crime were all interesting, and the take down at the end was all Eve.

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

The introduction of Peabody's parents.

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

Voices all stayed pretty true to form.

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

Yes

Another grand thriller for Eve, Roarke & Peabody

NY homicide detective, Lieutenant Eve Dallas, and her successful businessman-husband, Roarke, have returned from a relaxing vacation. Initially Eve has no pressing cases so she pulls a cold case and begins to work it with her aide, Peabody. Soon a murder comes in to pull Eve's attention so she gives the cold case to Peabody as a side assignment as they begin the pursuit of the new murder.

Very quickly Eve suspects the MO of a female killer she put behind bars years before. Sure enough, the woman has been released from prison and has lined up targets, including Eve and Roarke. This sets up conflict between the strong-headed couple as they jockey for ways to protect each other and to capture the deadly enemy.

Peabody's intriguing parents arrive to make matters interesting on the home front. Eve isn't the most comfortable hostess and now she has to play nice with this unusual and sensitive couple.

Eve's chase of the murderer has Roarke accompanying her to Dallas and Italy. I laughed over the city girl's reaction to the country setting, keeping in mind the futuristic aspects that result in Eve being unfamiliar with farm smells and critters. On the other side of the globe, Eve has to work her way through the red tape of the Italian police hoping to get to their suspect before she slips back to US where she is likely to go after Roarke.

As always, there is plenty of good action and police procedure as well as engaging dialogue. There is emotional trauma as Eve faces her childhood memories in Dallas. I liked how Peabody’s parents came to appreciate her skills and career choice as she got to cut her teeth on a case of her own. There is some POV head hopping but it works with this series.

This is a reliably wonderful series with each book presenting police suspense and personal conflicts among the characters. Although the stories could be read out of order I recommend starting at the beginning so you can enjoy the development of the character relationships.

Audio Notes: Susan Ericksen once again does a stellar job of narration. She added the voice of the villain and Peabody’s parents to her already wonderful range of characters. I always enjoy the listening experience for this series.

I missed this one and just purchased

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

Couldn't sum up in only three words too much going on .

Who was your favorite character and why?

Eve, and Peabody...... but all the characters and the emotions are fantastic

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

Susan Ericksen brought this book to life, Peabody's parents, when Eve and Rorke go to Dallas and she returns to the hotel where she left her father. So much emotion and power in the telling. This story was a knock out and done beautifully

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I missed this one even though I have 39 books in the series. I just purchased when it was on sale and glad I did. So much in this story.

Any additional comments?

Even though I've listened to all the previous "In Death" books before this one. It didn't loose anything for me it really made some things clearer. Eve and Rorke both have lots of baggage from their childhood, Eve's being the most horrible. However they support each other. That is the bottom line. I've really like this series so far and glad I went back and got this book.

great :)

another great listen I love these audio books Susan Erikson is perfect as Dallas and does an amazing job voicing Roarke and peapody etc. Dallas confronts her demons in this episode and I have to say I found it hard to listen to but it was very well written and performed

Reunion in Death

I've loved reading these books but now I'm loving listening to them. The narration is tops, clear and easy to !isten to . If you loved reading these books as I have then try the audio version.
