Publisher's Summary

"[Narrator Susan] Ericksen's quick pacing matches the intensity of the story. Whether one is new to the series or a longtime listener, Ericksen's presentation will entertain." (AudioFile Magazine)

In the new Eve Dallas police thriller from number one New York Times best-selling author J. D. Robb, what looked like a lover’s quarrel turned fatal has larger - and more terrifying - motives behind it....

The scene in the West Village studio appears to be classic crime-of-passion: two wineglasses by the bed, music playing, and a young sculptor named Ariel Byrd with the back of her head bashed in. But when Dallas tracks down the wealthy Upper East Side woman who called 911, the details don’t add up. Gwen Huffman is wealthy, elegant, comforted by her handsome fiancé as she sheds tears over the trauma of finding the body - but why did it take an hour to report it? And why is she lying about little things?

As Eve and her team look into Gwen, her past, and the people around her, they find that the lies are about more than murder. As with sculpture, they need to chip away at the layers of deception to find the shape within - and soon they’re getting the FBI involved in a case that involves a sinister, fanatical group and a stunning criminal conspiracy.

Think Handmaids tale...

Really enjoyed this last one in the series. The beginning had us thinking it would be pretty cut and dry. Nice twists, and good pace.
The only thing I would change about how this series is being narrated is with so many characters in the series, it would be so much better to have separate voice actors. It makes it hard with all the dialogue between characters.

Just excellent

This was probably one of Robb’s best. Excellent story and narration. First time I’ve found myself sitting in the car waiting for the moment I could hit pause. Pan hour later I’m still sitting. Like pulling an all nighter with a paperback. Brilliant. Can’t wait for the next one.

Keeping up with the times.

A lot of references to today’s issues. Preferred when it was more futuristic. Still good

Awful narrator

I tried three times and it's just too hard to follow. Very cumbersome narration. It's just too intense without any ebb and flow. Gave up after 15 minutes in.

Narrator ruined the delivery of the story.

Narrator was not an asset here. I will not purchase another in the series because of the narrator.

First In Death Installment I ever returned

I hate to do this, but I’m going to drop this series as I’ve grown tired of the similar or parallel plots to previous installments. In addition, the frequency of victimized women and/or their circumstances similar to Eve’s past has become tedious. Don’t get me wrong, I applaud Eve’s resolute determination to make something of herself despite her tragic beginnings. However, I'm tired of almost every victim reminding Eve of herself and that room in Dallas, TX.

I've stuck with this series for this long because I love how the supporting cast is well fleshed out. Unfortunately, the increasing transparency of social commentary cancels out any "escapism" in fiction. For the first time, I ended up returning this title and exchanging it for something else.

Have a cup of coffee, Eve and the gang are back!

Every year I waite for the release of the next In Death book. This does not disappoint. I love reconnecting with all the characters. Mavis bought a house.(sorry for the spoiler) This is a complicated, many layered story, Thank you Nora Roberts all the hours of pleasure you have given this old lady. You make me feel young.

WOW, just WOW!!!!!

Well, well, what a read. Touchy subject matter but very well written. It almost seemed like a reunion in that all of Eve's squad was used in this strange case. I don't know how JDR comes up with these story lines but with out a doubt, she is one hell of a writer. We've got a hodgepodge of unlawful activity being committed by a cult-like organization that needs the coordinated efforts of the NYPSD, FBI, Interpol and a few others to bring them down. This is just one of those books you have to read yourself to get the full impact of events taking place. No short summary can do it justice. I will shortly be re-reading this book again to prove to my mind that I actually did read what I thought I read. This is a double WOW book, a fantastic read, a powerful story. Don't take my word for it, read it yourself as you will not be disappointed.

read it!

I should have waited to buy the book. I was on vacation, I wanted it the day it came out and thought I could listen to it on flights. I will only do biographies, or self help audio from now on. The audio is flat and needs a different voice.

it just wasn't my favorite.

I believe I've read/listened to all of the Eve Dallas books. Maybe I'm getting tired of them or something. it's possibly time to move on for me.

Maybe getting close to running out of adventures for Eve?

This story started off slow . Got better as it went on, but I get the overall feeling that the author is making Eve seem a little on the boring side. Her gruff personality is sometimes annoying and even with all her years of experience hasn’t improved her demeanor. For someone so gifted at solving crimes, she has trouble being gracious to those close to her. Some levity is fine, but in some personal situations she needs a good slap. I can only hope the stories and Eves sour disposition get better.

ANOTHER HIT FROM NOIRA

THIS ONE IS ON MY FAVORITES LIST. GREAT PLOT LINES LOVE SHE INCUDES SO MANY CHARACTERS .
YANCY, TIBBLE, SHELBY, HER ENTIRE DEPARTMENT ALONG WITH WHITNEY AND MIRA AND THEN NADINE AFTER ASSI\TING EVE IS ALREADY PLANNING HER NEXT BOOK FROM THE SIDELINES.THE FBI IS HELPFUL ALONG WITH INTERPOL
GREAT NARRATION AS USUAL.
THEN THERE IS THE GREAT LOVE STORY OF ROARKE AND EVE.

OH AND CONGRATES TO MAVIS AND LEONARDO AND PEABODY AND MCNAB.

The end of a series

This series has always had two components...the story of Eve, Roarke and all of their friends and then there was the crime component-the “case” or police procedural. I loved the portion of the story that let us be part of Eve’s world-the personal. I toggled between interest and boredom on the “case” in each story. This installment really signaled the end for me because the author seems to have run out of meat for Eve, Roarke and their friends and colleagues. I miss Charles and Louise and the house parties and one-off conversations over a glass of wine at some dumpy bar with bad food. This entire book, with the exception of some forced, half-hearted meaningful moments (poor Eve saw herself in the face of the victim, Mavis gets a new house, etc.,) was centered around a far-fetched, overly contrived, and completely unbelievable case. I set the audio book to a speed of 1.7 and desperately wanted to fast forward through the case just to get to something meaningful, but alas, there was nothing of substance. This one could easily be skipped and would not be missed. I really hope this author figures out a way to bring interest back to Eve and Roarke, otherwise this series should gracefully find a way to wrap up. Wait for a library copy-I have read and listened to freebies that surpassed this one by a mile.
But the narrator is my favorite!

preachy and judgmental but ok read

lowest review Iv ever given one of JD Robb books I have loved them all but this one seemed a bit judgmental to me and that chaffed a bit. she seemed dead set on putting everyone who doesn't have EVERY single liberal world view in the same "crazy bigot box" I love her ability to tell a story , Nora Roberts is and will remain a favorite author with me . But really wish she'd tone down the political and the what could be evangelical hating retoric.
