Publisher's Summary

“The devil killed my body. I cannot fight, I cannot find. I cannot free her. You must. You are the one. We speak to the dead.”

Immediately after hearing these words, uttered to her by an old Romanian woman bleeding to death in the street, detective Eve Dallas begins to notice that her latest case has come with a number of interesting side-effects: visions of the deceased, instant familiarity with rooms she’s never seen before, and fluency in Russian. Likewise, there appears to be a force inside of her, a spirit other than her own, that won’t let her rest until she’s found Beata, the old woman’s great-granddaughter, whose disappearance two months prior remains a mystery. Desperate to be free of her new “gifts”, Eve pursues the facts until she discovers a link between Beata’s disappearance and the disappearance of eight other young women, all of whom attended the same dance classes, none of whom were ever heard from again.

A fun addition to the series

I really missed reading about the barbecue party in the previous book so that part was satisfying to say the least. This book is a short story about Eve getting possesed by an old Rom woman who died in her arms. It's an enjoyble story, but if you aren't into these type (occult, paranormal) of stories, I don't think it's a must have book. But for those die hard fans, I think it's a fun addition to the series

Only one problem...

There is only one problem with this book and that is, it is too short. Once again J.D. Robb keeps your attention with excitement. She does not fail to keep all the characters interesting and involved. A fun read or listen in this case!!

pleasantly surprised

I was very reluctant to purchase an audible ebook. I am a huge J D Robb fan and have all the series except some of these 1/2 books. As usual, Nora Roberts delivers a great story so that was no surprise. What did surprise me was the quality of the audio. I only purchased the audio as I couldn't find the story in normal kindle ebook (which is really annoying) and expected to have to force myself to struggle thru a dry, boring reading. Not so. The story was read with energy and excitement, and the characters individualised. I've now purchased a second audible and listen to it on my way to and from work.

Possession in Death

This story starts where Indulgence in Death ended. The possession of Eve by a Gypsy death talker was interesting as Eve does not believe in the occult. This was a fast pace short story that kept you interesting even if the story was a bit far fetched. Always enjoy the character in this series. Good story for taking a walk with the Ipod.

Loved It

What made the experience of listening to Possession in Death the most enjoyable?

You can't beat the Nora Roberts/Susan Ericksen combination.

What did you like best about this story?

Nora Roberts makes this story believable. Susan Ericksen brings the characters to life.

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

Susan Ericksen's use of different voices is perfect. I can tell which character is speaking just by the voice. She amazes me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes

Any additional comments?

I love the In Death Series. This review fits the majority of the stories. I listen to them over and over again.

Ugh

The reader is perfection as she always is. The story line was horribly disappointing. I have read all the In Death books prior to this one. Some of them are hard. All of them are well written. I loathed this particular book which struck me as far more sci fi in nature than any of the others. I couldn’t get through it fast enough. Here’s to hoping the next one is better!

The devil didn't make Eve do it!

What could be better than Eve Dallas possessed by a 96-year-old Romanian woman--and Roarke making love to "both."
Eve not only speaks Russian--even insulting Somerset in that language, but suddenly knows at least three recipes, and sees and speaks to dead women. This is the best In Death novellas I've heard so far.

One of my favorite Eve Dallas stories

I’ve been an Eve Dallas fan now for quite a few years and have enjoyed most of J.D. Robb’s In Death series. This one was shorter but nonetheless intriguing from the start and got better as it progressed. I also love meeting Dallas’ coworkers and friends and follow their story arcs over the novels. This was no exception and worked in Morris and the priest very well.
Bottom line is that I highly recommend it! 😊

For far fetched it is really good

I have read some of the other reviewers and I concur with them totally. J.D. Robb (Nora Roberst) has a fantastic imagination and makes it all work. And Susan Ericksen does another outstanding job.

Good book

Story as good as usual. Have read all of the Dallas books but this was spoiled somewhat for me by the narrator's atrocious Irish accent
