In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it.
Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve.
But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation. Determined to start working out as hard as she grills suspects, she chooses to do it at the old, rarely-used gym at Central. After a grueling workout, she squeezes into one of the narrow shower stalls, happy to have the place to herself. Just after she shuts the water off, the gym door clatters open - and while she cringes inside the stall, trying not to make a sound, Peabody overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. References are made to delivering product, and a house in the islands, and someone named Keener who’s supposed to look like an OD. It doesn’t take long for a naked and vulnerable Peabody to realize that both officers are crooked - guilty not just of corruption but of murder as well. Fortunately, the two clear out of the locker room without realizing there was a witness.
Eve Dallas may have trained Peabody well - but this is too dangerous for one person to take on alone. Now Peabody, Eve, and her husband, Roarke, must try to get the hard evidence they need to bring the dirty cops down - knowing all the while that the two have already killed to keep their secret, and are no doubt willing to do it again.

It sounds like it could be a good story but I just can't get passed the silly voices used by the narrator and the silly slang that the author uses to reinforce that this is set 30 odd years in the future.
In the end I lost patience and couldn't finish it.
Sounds like a cartoon, with silly voices. Not sure why it's set in the future either - there are a few misplaced references to technology, but it doesn't make sense and there is no discernible reason for it?
Maybe it all becomes clear at the end of this book, but I couldn't get past the comical narration and nonsensical setting, so only persevered for a couple of hours and quit...
"Treachery in Death"
Another great story in the death series. Peabody played a greater role in this story and new character were introduced and I think at least one will show up in future stories. I think Robb did a good job showing the feelings of betrayal that police officers have toward a crooked officer. The past was fast and Susan Ericksen does a great job reading the story. Can not wait for the next in the series.
"Best book ever in J.D. Robb's Death Series"
Treachery in Death is my favorite of all J.D. Robb's Death Series books. I have listened to them all in and out of order. Thank you J.D. Robb for keeping Eve Dallas & Roarke alive with a new offering each year.
In this book I feel J.D. Robb really lets us know each character to a fuller depth. From Eve, Roarke, Peabody, to the Chief, I feel I know them as if they were friends or family. The story is great and I loved every minute of it. I did not want it to end. Susan Ericksen makes these books come alive. She has got to be one of the best female narrator's of all time.
I loved this new addition to the 21st Century's "In Death" Series. Thank you J.D. Robb.
Fast-paced and full of intrigue, Treachery in Death hits all the right notes. There's something for everyone who enjoys the In Death series: great character development and interactions, humor, action and some wonderful Eve/Roarke moments. Eve's adversary is one of the strongest and most interesting in the series.
As always, Susan Ericksen does a wonderful job bringing the entire cast of characters to life.
"Love this series"
I have listened to every book in this series. Susan Ericksen makes the characters real. I always look forward to the next one.
This series just keeps getting better and better! This installment even has a very interesting twist in how Dallas and Peabody get involved. I don't want to give any more away lest I encroach on the mystery, but suffice to say you will NOT be disappointed! It's also enjoyable to catch up with past characters. JD Robb is a master at this and I can hardly wait for the next book!
"TREACHERY IN DEATH"
Another fantastic Eve Dallas mystery. J D Robb continues to have a storyline that catches you within the first few lines and holds you tight til the last work. It is a joy to follow the lives of Rourke, Peabody, McNab, Feeney and Sommerset. Can't wait for another!!!!
"I Heart Dallas!"
The 'In Death' series is definitely one of my favorites, greatly due to the wonderful narrative efforts of Susan Ericksen. She makes the characters jump off the page and straight into your head. I see very vividly - Eve, Peabody, Roarke, McNab and even the cat, in my mind when she's telling each story. Treachery in Death is no exception. J D changeed her M. O. a bit and gave us the villians right away. That was certainly a twist and added great depth to this installment. I love seeing Peabody grow and the familiar cast of characters are always great to come back to. This is one that shouldn't be missed. Looking forward to the next one already.
This book reminds me of "promises in death" which I loved. This is even better.
"One of the Best"
This book is now in my top 3 of the series. Loved watching the team work "undercover". I enjoyed the small part where Peabody is "primary" giving Eve orders!
As always Susan Ericksen was fabulous!
"Fantastic, one of the best in the series!"
Treachery is a great listnen; I had difficulty turning it off and I didn't want it to end.
It is in the top three of the series.
"J D Robb Treachery"
As usual another cracking story about Eve, Roarke and all her colleagues. I have read or listened to all this series so far and have never felt let down by any of the books. Long may this series continue
"A real winner"
The latest J. D. Robb continues to please - a taut-paced story dealing with corruption in the police, this reading kept me hooked. I've recently come to audiobooks because of a vision problem, and being an avid reader I wasn't sure if the audio version would hold up, but I wasn't disappointed. Eve Dallas, her husband Roarke, her partner Peabody, all come to life in this exciting thriller, and there was even a tear to my eye at the end. Highly recommended
I have to say I love all these books but this one was especially magnificent. What a fantastic story. I listened to it solidly unable to take a break. Loved it.
This story was so well written & narrated that you could picture every scene - loved it.
