Publisher's Summary

It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving.

Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

Eve Dallas is trying to sort out the inexplicable events. Surviving witnesses talk about seeing things - monsters and swarms of bees. They describe sudden, overwhelming feelings of fear and rage and paranoia. When forensics makes its report, the mass delusions make more sense: it appears the bar patrons were exposed to a cocktail of chemicals and illegal drugs that could drive people into temporary insanity - if not kill them outright.

But that doesn’t explain who would unleash such horror - or why. Eve’s husband, Roarke, happens to own the bar, yet he’s convinced the attack wasn’t directed at him. It’s bigger than that. And if Eve can’t figure it out fast, it could happen again, anytime, anywhere. Because it’s airborne....

    Story
    "Good Story but the Performance Was A Little Off"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Delusion In Death to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Roarke, as usual. For all the right reasons.


    What aspect of Susan Ericksen’s performance would you have changed?

    I was really put off by some aspects of Ms. Ericksen's performance. The voices she used for both Peabody and Capt. Whitney were extremely annoying. Peabody is a sweet, smart, character and Eriksen's voice made her seem like a half-wit. Whitney sounded more like a truck driver than an experienced, intelligent, officer of the law.
    Also, the character's name is PeaBODY, not Pee-Buddy!


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, I liked the story line. It wraps up the loose ends of the last book, puts LT. Dallas back on her feet. Now I hope Ms. Robb continues to develop some of the other characters as well.

    What made the experience of listening to Delusion In Death the most enjoyable?

    Hearing the narrator read in different voices makes the story come to life. I can't wait to ride in the car so I can listen.

    "Another hit"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Delusion In Death to be better than the print version?

    I love the audio editions because I travel so much. Although I do have to admit that I occasionally listen to them when I'm not traveling - and this was one. Since I listen to the unabridged versions, it's the same as reading the book, and the different actors are portrayed wonderfully by Susan.


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

    I would compare this to other "in Death" books. It's a series that I love.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    There were several new characters in this book and she does a great job with the voices.


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

    This book was so good, I listened to it when I wasn't travelling - but because I couldn't put it down.

    "Continuing superb tradition, does not disappoint."
    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Susan Ericksen is a master of the voice of the characters. While I read many books, I would not want to sacrifice hearing the various individuals in the story. It truly enhances the mystery and the experience.

    "always a great listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    absolutely, the reader brings the story and the characters to life so convincingly in each book that you really want to follow their adventures. The stories themselves tend to become rather familiar, but always exciting, and always to the advancement of the series in general.


    What did you like best about this story?

    as always the reader makes the characters individuals, even the male characters take on a distinctive persona which makes you relate well to all of them.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She has the ability to make each character, male or female become their own distinctive person and character, she is one of the best readers ever, male or female, she brings every character, male or female to life.


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

    No, just enjoyed the way the story line moves along and develops the characters in this series


    Any additional comments?

    no

    "Good story but not a good performance."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Listening to this book was an OK for time well spent. Most distracting was the not so great performance of the reader.


    What didn’t you like about Susan Ericksen’s performance?

    Voice was not up to par vs almost every other book I have listened to and I have listened to over 100 books. Her male voices were most distracting.


    Was Delusion In Death worth the listening time?

    The story was good, but not great.

    "Delivers!"
    What made the experience of listening to Delusion In Death the most enjoyable?

    Unique story line. History of the Urban Wars which would have started about now. Progression of heroine in resolving the disaster of her own beginning.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very real feeling of the future world where the same old same old issues reside.


    Any additional comments?

    Probably one of the better "In Death" series. Good story. Plot interesting and unique. The main characters continue to interest one. I have read every book in this series and I liked this better than most. Kept my attention from beginning to end. Kept me up a few nights listening, too! She has not yet worn out this series and the rotating sub-characters remain interesting. I think you'll like it. If you are new to the series, this might be a good start as it is easy to pick it up.
