Publisher's Summary

The next novel featuring Lieutenant Eve Dallas from #1 New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb!

Sometimes "brotherhood" is just another word for conspiracy...

Dennis Mira just had two unpleasant surprises. First he learned that his cousin Edward was secretly meeting with a real estate agent about their late grandfather's magnificent West Village brownstone, despite the promise they both made to keep it in the family. Then, when he went to the house to confront Edward about it, he got a blunt object to the back of the head.

Luckily Dennis is married to Charlotte Mira, the NYPSD's top profiler and a good friend of Lieutenant Eve Dallas. When the two arrive on the scene, he explains that the last thing he saw was Edward in a chair, bruised and bloody. When he came to, his cousin was gone. With the mess cleaned up and the security disks removed, there's nothing left behind but a few traces for forensics to analyze.

As a former lawyer, judge, and senator, Edward Mira mingled with the elite and crossed paths with criminals, making enemies on a regular basis. Like so many politicians, he also made some very close friends behind closed - and locked - doors. But a badge and a billionaire husband can get you into places others can't go, and Eve intends to shine some light on the dirty deals and dark motives behind the disappearance of a powerful man, the family discord over a multimillion-dollar piece of real estate...and a new case that no one saw coming.

Another classic "In Death" story

This book was more enjoyable because it showed us that Eve Dallas, notwithstanding her tragic and traumatic childhood, is able to form bonds of friendship and that in her own way, she can show her love and affection, as she does for Dr. Mira's husband, Dennis Mira. Dallas has a soft spot for Dennis, and Dr. Mira, throughout the series of books, has filled the role of quasi-mother for Eve. Roarke, as usual, is rich and sexy, and irresistible. Every woman needs a Roarke in her life. The narrator, who I believe has been narrating the J.D. Robb books for a while, is easy to listen to. If you are a fan of the "In Death" series of books, you will be a fan of this book. #Audible1

I love this book

I am a huge fan of the "In Death" series, but this one stands out as my all time favourite. The story is great, but the underlying story of Eve and her relationship with Dennis Mira is moving. It added a new facet to the ongoing story. #Audible1

Another excellent turnout by JD Robb. Loved it.

This is a new story that should please all of those folks who feel they are starting to all sound alike. I love Eves' interactions with Mr. Mira (who I think all her fans have a secret crush on... go ahead, admit it lol). Sure the story takes us back to her past but Eves past made her who she is plus we have to remember that everyone who reads this book hasn't read the whole series and it provides important background into her character. I am very happy with this book and can't wait for the next one as usual. Keep up the good work Ms Roberts.

Best in series

I love this book. I think it's by far the best of the entire series. I've listened to it four times already. Eve's interaction to Dennis Mira is so very sweet. Eve has grown so much from the first book.

Excellent but tough subject

Excellent character development in this latest In Death with intriguing new characters joining Eve's work family.

The crimes, however, are exceptionally horrific. Rape figures prominently in the storyline and graphic descriptions of the crimes were difficult to listen to.

Gripping

This is book 42 in the Eve Dallas series. I am amazed that Robb can keep coming up with such interesting ideas for her books. Dr. Charlotte Mira is my favorite person in the series, so when I discovered this story is mainly about professor Dennis Mira, Charlotte’s husband, I could hardly wait for the book to be released.

Professor Mira has been like a surrogate father to Eve Dallas. Dennis finds out his cousin former Judge, Senator Edward Mira, has contacted a real estate agent to sell their grandfather’s magnificent West Village brownstone despite the promise to keep it in the family. Dennis goes to the house to speak to Edward, he finds Edward beaten and Dennis is attacked and beaten. When Dennis awakens Edward is gone, the house is cleaned as are the security system tapes. Eva and her team are on the job to help the Miras.

I enjoy J. D. Robb’s group of characters in this series. Robb weaves them in and out of the various episodes with great skill like a master painter. I think these characters are what make the series so popular over the years; it’s what helps keep the books from becoming stagnant. I have to laugh at the battle of the ties and socks going on in the homicide department. Robb goes into the relationship between Peabody and Eve in this story as well as a discussion about marriage; the Mira’s as well as Eve and Roarke. The plot is full of twists, turns and conspiracies that keep the readers nose in the book. Susan Ericksen is fabulous narrating the book. She has narrated the series from the beginning and has helped make the story successful.

Awesome and open

This was definitely a good book. Finally she was able to deal with some of the deeper issues on her own without any prodding from anyone. She chose to talk about and was rewarded with yet another champion

I'll always read any book in this series. Love it!

What did you love best about Brotherhood in Death?

I'm a total fan of the "in death" series and I've listened to all of them -- multiple times. I recommend it, although my husband wouldn't like it, so maybe it's a chick thing. And Susan Ericksen is brilliant. She's the perfect narrator for these books and does all the characters perfectly. If you're new to this series, start at the beginning....and Enjoy!

A Good Read

As usual I really enjoyed another book in this series. Every time Dennis is in a book I fall more in love with his character wish my dad had been like him or I could meet a man like him. GREAT BOOK

But that's not what it sounds like in my head

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

Probably not. I mean, the narrator does a fabulous job of making different voices for every character. But that's not what they sound like in my head. Problems with being the 42nd book in a series, I already have pre established voices in my head

Who was your favorite character and why?

Anyone who doesn't say Dennis Mira did not listen to this book correctly.

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

She really does a fabulous job of having very different dialects and tones for all characters, and there are a LOT of them.

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

I feel like the psychology worked really well in this book, there's a part where Peabody talks to a witness/interview person and tells them about how victims try and get their lives back but can't with these kind of crimes, and it was very based in psycho analysis.

Traditions

What am amazing story about misguided privilege and horrific traditions. January 2061, Eve is asked by Mr. Mira to find his missing cousin. All this brings her to discovering a special "Brotherhood", who have been brutalizing and raping women as a twisted tradition. J.D. Robb takes you on a horrific journey. Susan Erickson gives life to the many characters involved. Awesome read.⚘⚘⚘
