Description

Lieutenant Eve Dallas struggles with the end - and the beginning - of life in this thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling In Death series.

Just as Eve Dallas begins to investigate the grisly double homicide of two young lovers - both employees of the same prestigious accounting firm - her friend Mavis need a favor. One of the moms-to-be in Mavis’s birthing class has gone missing. Normally, such a case would be turned over to Missing Persons. But Mavis wants no one else on the job - and Eve can’t say no. 

Now Eve’s trying to track down the missing woman, while simultaneously unearthing the deals and double-crosses hidden in the files of some of the city’s richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against this particularly vicious killer. Luckily, her multimillionaire husband Roarke’s expertise comes in handy with the number crunching. But as he mines the crucial data that will break the case wide open, Eve faces an all too real danger in the world of flesh and blood.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"The audio skips smoothly along, connecting subplots blithely, and Susan Ericksen never misses a beat." ( AudioFile)

Another Good Story

I enjoyed this story as it had a much lighter tone to it than the other's. Mavis went into labor and with Eve beung her birthing coach alobg with Roake broght a welcome tone showing that Eve Dallas does have a soft, gooey side to her personality. The story was good and so was the narration.

Another Great Dallas Story

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

Dallas and Rorke continue to evolve, and Mavis gives birth, while another killer is brought down. What more is there to say? :)

What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

I have listened to the entire series up to this point, and Susan is outstanding in almost all of them. There was one or two titles where she seemed to lose her rhythm, but she is back on track here. Her use of separate voices for each character makes it easy to picture the conversation going on, and help keep the story flowing without the constant

Any additional comments?

If you love the Dallas series, this one will make you happy. If you are not familiar with the series, you should probably start back at volume 1. Though each title mostly stands on its own, there is a definite progression of the characters and their relationships, and the story makes more sense with that background.

I loved it.

Classic Nora -- fantasy, mystery, love, and suspense, all wrapped up with a ridiculously happy ending. The narrator does a great job and it's just great, fun, escape.

Funny, capturing, sad .... did I mention VERY funny?

I listen to the story in bed, at the end of the day, instead of watching the boring car shows (fixing the old & making the new, recreating for auctions...etc) and/or Pawn shop shows...you know, the guy's choice when they have the TV remote control. I set for the book to turn off at the end of the chapter just in case I fall asleep. But I end up laughing, cracking up, and now I am being watched by my spouse. Most times I share with my husband: How Roark and Eve act when Mavis has the baby....what Eve says as the head come out and the thought was just so hilarious! Just as funny as what Roark says when Even suggests that she (at the end of bed, where Mavis's the legs are spread) and Roark (at the head of the bed) switch places: His retort to that and to most everything to do with the Prego-Mavis were hilarious!

The story was creative (as most of them are in the Death Series), chilling, and well, a story w/o humor is not that impressive. But hey, listen to the Death series and make an opinion all your own.

What I don't like about the series is that in many/most or if not every one of the stories: Bad man 1 kills bad man 2 or when two other characters in the book hurt each other ... they have a mind to this own, nothing to do with Eve and Eve sits their and has a fit "I should've done this or that...." and takes the actions of someone else and complains, whines, kicks the desk because she is the one to blame: The only thing going on is Eve having her asinine fit. And she is like a spoiled brat: I don't wanna go to sleep now..... I don't wanna eat now..... then Roark has to literally treat her like a child, scold her, make/trick her take her medicine. I like Eve, but I wish she hadn't turned into such a spoiled brat (at times).

I love Mavis!

I like this book a lot because Mavis plays a bigger role in this one. It's an interesting story. Worth the time and the credit.

Babies everywhere!

It’s early Spring in NYC 2060 and Eve Dallas is one again trying to find a killer who killed an accountant and her fiancé. Meanwhile, Mavis is almost to her due date and both Eve and Roarke are wrangled into being birth coaches, much to their terror. When a pregnant friend of Mavis’ goes missing and misses the baby shower Eve is hosting for Mavis, Mavis begs Eve to find her. Little do they know that both Eve’s accountant murder and the missing woman tie in to something international and sinister. The race is on to find the woman before she delivers. Narration was great!
