Publisher's Summary

Dante had been courting his victim in cyberspace for weeks before meeting her in person. A few sips of wine and a few hours later, she was dead. The murder weapon: a rare, usually undetectable date-rape drug with a street value of a quarter million dollars. Detective Eve Dallas is playing and replaying the clues in her mind. The candlelight, the music, the rose petals strewn across the bed - a seduction meant for his benefit, not hers. He hadn't intended to kill her. But now that he has, he is left with only two choices: to either hole up in fear and guilt or start hunting again....

RE-DO! w/ corrected Characters PEABODY for one!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! When I first saw "Seduction In Death" new release date I thought it was just the same book with a new republication date... but it's not. I am passionate about the "In Death" series and am constantly blown away by J. D. Robbs /Nora Roberts genius. I think Susan Ericksen is brilliant but I have been perplexed for sometime as to why the "Powers That Be" dictated changes in the character depiction of my beloved characters in books 13-16. I didn't dare to even dream that I would ever get to hear my favorite character in these books as I have grown to love them but IT HAPPENED and I'M IN HEAVEN! All the character depiction in the Redo of Seduction In Death are back...to name a few, Peabody, Rourke, Eve, Morris, Commander Whitney etc... In the first rendition of Seduction In Death some of the characters went through major transformation, some more subtle in the Re-do they are all back, in the characters we have grown to love and expect, as they have been depicting in all the books with the exclusion of the character diversions in books 13-16. The Red-do of "Seduction In Death" in my opinion, is as it should have been the first time out. If this is your first "A-read" of Seduction in death you have a treat in store, if this is the first Re-do "A-read" of Seduction in Death you have a treat and surprise in store! Can't wait to A-read the next Re-do's. This one is a definite Winner! Major Kudu's to Ms. Ericksen!

Great book even better with new recording

Any additional comments?

I'm delighted that Susan Ericksen has re-recorded some of the first In Death books she originally performed several years ago. I think this was one of her firsts, and she had not yet developed all the distinct character voices that ID fans recognize today.I just finished listening to the new recording and it has really enhanced my enjoyment of this book. J.D. Robb and Susan Ericksen are a can't-be-beat combination!

Perfect Author, Perfect Series, Perfect Voice

The In Death Series is one of my absolute favorites, and this book is a good change of pace from the more serial-killer-oriented ones that always leave me a little uneasy. Plus, the final solidifcation of Peabody and McNab's relationship is just great. And in the narrator, who in my opinion was born for this exact series, and you have a great ride.

Oh Thank Goddness - Re-Record!

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

I heard that a couple of the books were re-recorded but I thought that they could not be that bad - so no I would not go back and get the re-recorded versions. I have the entire collection and have listened to them for years but I never noticed that the old version did not have the right voices. I was listening to the old version tonight and not even one chapter in I had to stop because it was driving me crazy. Then I found the re-recorded version. It is all better now. :-) All the right voices are there.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of them

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

Keep up the great work Susan Ericksen! If you ever stop reading Eve Dallas I will just have to cry.

So what's not to like

Another JD Robb book holds my interest, makes me laugh, makes me cringe. The two villains are not particularly realistic, but then mostly none of her villains are--too over the top. But In Death books aren't for serious murder & mayhem & mystery fans. I just enjoy the characters--especially Peabody. They make the books. And they are fun to listen to.

Best writer. Best narrator.

JD Robb's books are always an exciting read and when Susan Ericksen is the narrator, the characters become so real they seem to jump off the page and into your life.

This is a really good one

I believe this is my favorite In Death book so far. Betrayal in Death was previously my favorite, but Seduction in Death is even better. I believe the reason I like these two so well is that the killer is known to the listener from the beginning. We know what they are thinking and what they are doing. That makes the book very interesting. In later In Death books the author does not usually give you the insight into the killer until the very end. I find that disappointing.

In Seduction, two young men are giving women date rape drugs for the thrill and then end up killing the young women. Dallas is trying to catch them. McNabb and Peabody are exploring what they feel for one another. Charles Monroe, professional companion, meets Louise Demato, a doctor - and romance sparks fly. Dallas is not quite as hateful as she usually can be, but she just cannot help but be overly snarky, especial to Peabody. I want to reach into the book and shake Dallas for her meanness. I want to ask her how she would feel if her superiors, like Whitney, talked to her the way Dallas talks to her subordinates.

I definitely have a love/hate relationship with Dallas, but I have a love/love relationship with this series and the fantastic narrator, Susan Ericksen.

Enjoyable

Would you listen to Seduction in Death again? Why?

Possibly not. Sometimes in this series Susan Eriksons performance is a little slower making all the voices slightly different. This is one of the times. I still enjoyed the book though.

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

i always listen to the books quickly but 12 hours in one sitting might be a bit much.

Any additional comments?

This was an interesting concept with Lucious and Kevin. Not your average killers. Very interesting.

Funny and witty

Fast pace, funny and witty in her normal publication. However, not as gripping as other books she written.
