Publisher's Summary

In the latest novel in the number one New York Times best-selling series, homicide detective Eve Dallas sifts through the wreckage of the past to find a killer.

The body was left in a dumpster like so much trash, the victim a woman of no fixed address, known for offering paper flowers in return for spare change - and for keeping the cops informed of any infractions she witnessed on the street. But the notebook where she scribbled her intel on litterers and other such offenders is nowhere to be found. 

Then Eve is summoned away to a nearby building site to view more remains - in this case decades old, adorned with gold jewelry and fine clothing - unearthed by recent construction work. She isn’t happy when she realizes that the scene of the crime belongs to her husband, Roarke - not that it should surprise her, since the Irish billionaire owns a good chunk of New York. Now Eve must enter a complex world of real estate development, family history, shady deals, and shocking secrets to find justice for two women whose lives were thrown away....

Amazing

This was a very emotional and riveting book. The plot was very well thought out and the characters were well rounded. This book tied parts from many past stories into this as well as new twists. Brava.

Meeehhh

I have all of the In Death series and quite like most of them, but it seems like they're getting progressively weaker. Filling pages with old words and phrases and less new content.
This book spent more time on "I'm reading The Red Horse book", " I remember you from the Icove vid", and references to when Eve was a child and not enough spent on developing a plot...., every, single chapter has at least two-three paragraphs going back to those. It got old real quick.

Not her usual…

Not sure what happened with this book as it lacks the energy, character relationships and suspense as her previous stories in the series. The first 5 chapters were painfully slow and I lost interest so often I had to rewind the audio to try to listen to what I missed. I love Susan Erickson’s narrations, but she must have also been bored as her performance is not the superior quality as other books. I’ve enjoyed the various voices she’s given to the characters, but here, there was little distinction between them and sometimes I had a hard time determining who was “speaking”. I was not convinced that Susan was the narrator until I looked at the credits to confirm. Hope the next book has the energetic, fun story and the familiar narration as I’ve enjoyed in the past books.

So, so good

Loved it. There is a lot going on during this book, but easy to track. several mysteries, bodies and bad guys. Really entertaining. We don't get a lot of side characters I've come to love, but we get our core group. Great addition to the series.

Ugh. Should have read the negative reviews.

I gave this one a good try but returned it. I've listened to a number of these books and enjoy them as the shallow fun they are - the crimes are usually over the top but interesting, and the supporting characters are far better developed and more likeable than the main. This one is Dallas at her most childish and annoying, and there's far too much of her and not enough of the likeable supporting characters. I'm done with all her whining and bitching, and with a grown woman who thinks vegetables are yucky and calls cosmetics, "gunk" and "stuff," like she's a little boy in a 50's sitcom. I'll never understand what Roarke is supposed to see in her, and that relationship is particularly out of balance in this one. And speaking of unbalanced, she manages to tie every case to her childhood trauma, even when it has to be forced in and doesn't fit with the rest of the story. And the dreams!? Come ON, again?? I gave up - the crimes in this one are tedious, and there's far, far too much Eve and her very annoying issues.

My last In Death book?

I can’t tell you much about this book because I didn’t get lost in the story. Instead, with every chapter, I was thinking ‘oh here we go again’ because it was so much like every other book in the series.

I’m tired of Eve Dallas (and Roarke, Peabody, McNab, Mavis). I’m tired of how every case triggers her, then we get a recap of how bad her childhood was, of Roarke being so unrealistic (what *isn’t* he an expert in?!), of the Roarke/Eve relationship where he puts in 90% of the effort while she barely contributes to the marriage, of how Eve is the only capable cop and all the others are inept, of how she treats Summerset (and everyone else not named Roarke!) i could go on and on. I’m just tired of it all.

So disappointed, after all these years

I’ve enjoyed reading/listening to all the In Death books. But, past few years I have been less excited when a new one came out. Stories are stale, the crime situations are tweaked but characters and storylines pretty much the same. Eve & Roarke, what happened?

BETTER EVERY TIME

Everytime a new Dallas story comes out, I think it can't be better but it is! This one was GREAT - almost multiple stories in one! And Susan Erickson does a fantastic job as always. She always makes it easy to follow who is speaking!

Most boring story in the series

This is one of my favorite series to listen to so I’m sad that this one was so boring. There was no humor, no heart, the bad guys were cliche and boring. The plot was predictable and cookie cutter which I’m kind of ok with in this series but this had absolutely nothing else to it. I don’t understand what happened with this one!

Cheesy and unrealistic

The characters are animated to the point that they are unrealistic. The dialog is like something out of a children's movie and the feminization of the plot is dreadful. The protagonist's husband is a mix between Tony Stark and an Irish Elvis Presley and works alongside his wife even though he has no business or authority as an investigator. They use words like "frosty" as a term of endearment and as an exclamation for their satisfaction. Ill be seeking a refund.
