Publisher's Summary

Doctor Kent Abner began the day of his death comfortable and content.

When Kent Abner - baby doctor, model husband and father, good neighbour - is found dead in his town house in the West Village, Detective Eve Dallas and her team have a real mystery on their hands. Who would want to kill such a good man? They know how, where and when he was killed, but why did someone want him dead?

Then a second victim is discovered, and as spring arrives in New York City, Eve finds herself in a race against time to track down a serial killer with a motive she can't fathom and a weapon of choice which could wipe out half of Manhattan.

In Death's latest brings unique villains and death

Although I could never get tired of Eve Dallas, some of the middle books seemed repetitive. Like the two books about old men raping people and getting killed as revenge? Yeah.

This book introduces a new style, new weapon, and really takes us into the psychology of the killer(or killer, no spoilers here folks).

Absolutely worth it, especially in audio book.

Book 49!

Yet another brilliantly thought out and engaging episode in a captivating story. This one is solely the case which was fun but had none of the other peripheral character storylines which are as interesting a part of the series as the cases for me! I’m finding myself going back through the titles looking for the .5’s I may have missed and found some real gems. I love the voices Susan Erickson (please excuse any misspelling) has created and continued through the entire series, some of which I wasn’t too keen on to begin with but now sound so recognisable they are friends. Congratulations Ms Roberts on yet another superb book, and to Ms Erickson for bringing it to life so well in spite of a just noticeable but beautifully compensated for cold.

Story was good

I enjoyed the book though I gave to admit that I missed the back stories which are just as much a part of this series as the storyline itself. In that regard I was disappointed it’s a long 6 months until the next book which I hope will be back to the usual family like dialogue and fights between the characters . But I still would not miss a book in the series

One of the few that left you—

Wondering if you knew who the suspect was until the very end of the story.
Well done once again to JD Robb for another excellent book!!
It was nice to see Louise and Charles make an appearance as well as one of my favourites Denis xx

I have listened to all 50 of the in-death series, the voices have matured and grown over time, I can usually close my eyes and I know all the characters. I was though a bit disappointed with Mc Nabb, Morris and Reiniki voices this time around. For me the voices make the story and Susan is in my opinion one of the best narrators around.... it didn’t spoil it for me, but I stopped the story to listen again when they spoke...

An excellent, enjoyable story

I have always loved these stories and this one maintains the usual high standard. An inventive murder method. Susan Ericksen's narration is superb as always.

Wow! Just Wow!

The ONLY thing that is wrong with this instalment was that we weren’t told the details of the imprisonment! I really wanted to know!!

Susan Ericksen is THE Most PERFECT Narrator for this series. Roarke and Peabody! Especially those two, cannot events bettered!

Shame as love JD Robb's In Death books.

The reader was the wrong choice, felt no empathy for the characters, usually read one of these in two days. The attempt of the Irish accent was distracting, fell asleep listening. Shame.

Back on track.

The last few books have felt formulaic but with this book the author is back on track. Some name checks of other characters and appearances by others

How does she do it?

How does she do it? After 50 full novels and countless novellas JD ROBB is still going strong. I have just finished listening to the entire collection of stories. Everyone different and I must say the narrative throughout was excellent I wasn’t disappointed in any books and this was no different. A well loved child doctor is poisoned, everyone Eve and Peabody talk to loved the man.
So who could do such a thing?? it isn’t until the second murder that the clues start to show themselves. Excellent addition to the collection.
