Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Eve Dallas puzzles over a bizarre suicide bombing in a Wall St. office building in the latest in the #1 New York Times bestselling series…

For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone. But after marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives, the headlines told of death and destruction instead. The NYPSD’s Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter - but what was the motive of the masked men?

Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn’t going to put the brakes on the merger. All it’s accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. Now, with the help of her billionaire husband Roarke, Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror, look at suspects inside and outside both corporations, and determine whether the root of this crime lies in simple sabotage, or something far more complex and twisted.

Love these novels!!!!

With this being book No. 47, you would expect that there would be some rework of a previous theme, but Nora Roberts aka J.D. Robb never fails to deliver a fresh take on a murder mystery, or her main characters.

The humour, the typical Dallas mix-ups with phrases, never fail to draw a laugh, sometimes in the oddest moments.

Susan Ericksen IS the only narrator for these novels, making both Roarke and Dallas come alive. Kudos for her skill and talent.

Don't miss out on this great read.

#Audible1
As always Susan Ericksen narrates the story of Eve Dallas to perfection. I love the interpretation of the characters and she nails the personalities to a tee. Through her narration I can see and hear the characters in my head and and thoroughly enjoy the book all the more through her narration. Thank You Susan Ericksen!!

Another solid effort from Robb

Being a huge fan of this series, the release date for book 47 was definitely earmarked on my calendar. It did not disappoint!!
In this installment We have Eve and her merry band on the trail of killers with a very innovating M O . This is not a premise that I had read before and I found it refreshing and thought provoking. There were explosions, moral dilemmas, Roarke as Peabody and ass-kicking ninja ladies. We get to see more from Eve's circle of compatriots this round, which is always good fun. The Icove Agenda and Nadine are in the running for an Oscar much to Eve's chagrin and everyone else's delight! Which gave this book some nice lighter notes. There was also a great moment between Eve and Sommerset and I always look forward to those.
Definitely worth a credit and I would recommend any book in this series.

Captivating

I have read this series from the beginning. It is always a great escape read. I enjoy the series, but I am finding it difficult to write a review and not keep saying the same thing. I was originally drawn to the series because the story is set in the future. The story takes place in New York City and is primarily a classic “who-done-it” mystery.

I am always amazed how Robb has managed to not repeat a storyline; each book is fresh and has a unique catch to the story. While reading this book, I began thinking how appropriate Galahad, the cat, was. With Eve and Rourke’s lifestyle, a dog would not be ideal. Robb has revealed that Galahad was a perfect pet for Eve’s personality. This is more of a “follow- the- money” type of mystery. As usual, there is lots of action. It was great to visit all my favorite characters. Cannot wait for the next installment.

The book is almost fourteen hours. Susan Ericksen does a great job narrating the series. Ericksen is an actress, director, author and audiobook narrator. Ericksen has won multiple Earphone Awards and is a three-time Audie Award winner. She has narrated many books I have read and I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to her.

Interesting story and uniquely J.D Robb!

I don't normally read Nora Roberts but I own every book and book on CD written by JDRobb. In the past, I've found plots recycled (still loved them) but this is definitely not a previous plot recycled. It's an interesting, fast paced plot with the favorite characters are front and center. Highly recommended!

One of the b st In Death novels

JD Robb has outdone herself! This fast paced book has some very suspenseful moments, with the comic relief. I can’t say enough about this wonderful book.

Another well done entry

Well done, as are all Robb books; in world building, plot, characters. There is enough basic info in the book description to decide if you’re interested in this book.
I enjoyed it and think it was worth the Audible credit.
Ericksen does a great job of narration and is the voice of the series.

JD Robb at her best

It’s been a while since we’ve had one this good! Oh they’re all good and I’m totally entertained. But this one brought in all the characters one way or another. The interaction between our favorites. I couldn’t stop listening. Laughed and cried! Can’t wait for the next!

Good story kept me engaged.

Not too predictable. It had just the right amount of back story and the had a couple of twist.

J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) never fails! Awesome book

Loved it. If you haven't read the whole series, DO!! I actually did something different this time. I went back to book 1 and read/listened to every book up to this one. If you've never done that, i highly suggest it. I cried, laughed and cheered all over again but saw way more than I ever have. I saw Peabody coming into her own with Eve. I saw Eve grow as a person and how every relationship she accumulates along the way changes her ever so slightly. You can also see how each case changes her also. I've never seen this kind of character development before and am completely blown away. I highly recommend everything by J.D. Robb aka Nora Roberts.

Best of Recent In Death Stories

I always enjoy stories in this series, but I feel this one was a cut above recent entries. The interplay of the characters seemed more true to the established traits, quirks, and backstories. Of course, Susan Erickson did a bang up job embodying all the characters.

GREAT ADDITION TO A MARVELOUS SERIES!!!!!!!!!

FIRST....I want to thank whoever is responsible for choosing the narrator! Susan Ericksen has done a magnificent job in making all the characters a unique sound. There is absolutely NO ONE that could step in now and take her place. It would never be the same.

I've listened to ALL 47 releases in this series. In fact, it was J. D. Robb's In Death series that introduced me to the audible world. We would travel from the Mississippi Gulf Coast to Louisville, KY making our first stop at a Cracker Barrel to "rent" a CD of J.D. Robb. We would return it to a Cracker Barrel in Louisville and rent another for the trip home! :) The rest is history!

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to everyone. However, this is one of those series that you MUST start with Book 1 to fully get to know, love and appreciate all the characters. I'm looking forward to the next release in February 2019 called "Connections in Death". I hope it is as good as this one.
