Publisher's Summary

Dante had been courting his victim in cyberspace for weeks before meeting her in person. A few sips of wine and a few hours later, she was dead. The murder weapon: a rare, usually undetectable date-rape drug with a street value of a quarter million dollars. Detective Eve Dallas is playing and replaying the clues in her mind. The candlelight, the music, the rose petals strewn across the bed - a seduction meant for his benefit, not hers. He hadn't intended to kill her. But now that he has, he is left with only two choices: to either hole up in fear and guilt or start hunting again....

Funny and witty

Fast pace, funny and witty in her normal publication. However, not as gripping as other books she written.

RE-DO! w/ corrected Characters PEABODY for one!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! When I first saw "Seduction In Death" new release date I thought it was just the same book with a new republication date... but it's not. I am passionate about the "In Death" series and am constantly blown away by J. D. Robbs /Nora Roberts genius. I think Susan Ericksen is brilliant but I have been perplexed for sometime as to why the "Powers That Be" dictated changes in the character depiction of my beloved characters in books 13-16. I didn't dare to even dream that I would ever get to hear my favorite character in these books as I have grown to love them but IT HAPPENED and I'M IN HEAVEN! All the character depiction in the Redo of Seduction In Death are back...to name a few, Peabody, Rourke, Eve, Morris, Commander Whitney etc... In the first rendition of Seduction In Death some of the characters went through major transformation, some more subtle in the Re-do they are all back, in the characters we have grown to love and expect, as they have been depicting in all the books with the exclusion of the character diversions in books 13-16. The Red-do of "Seduction In Death" in my opinion, is as it should have been the first time out. If this is your first "A-read" of Seduction in death you have a treat in store, if this is the first Re-do "A-read" of Seduction in Death you have a treat and surprise in store! Can't wait to A-read the next Re-do's. This one is a definite Winner! Major Kudu's to Ms. Ericksen!

Great book even better with new recording

Any additional comments?

I'm delighted that Susan Ericksen has re-recorded some of the first In Death books she originally performed several years ago. I think this was one of her firsts, and she had not yet developed all the distinct character voices that ID fans recognize today.I just finished listening to the new recording and it has really enhanced my enjoyment of this book. J.D. Robb and Susan Ericksen are a can't-be-beat combination!

Perfect Author, Perfect Series, Perfect Voice

The In Death Series is one of my absolute favorites, and this book is a good change of pace from the more serial-killer-oriented ones that always leave me a little uneasy. Plus, the final solidifcation of Peabody and McNab's relationship is just great. And in the narrator, who in my opinion was born for this exact series, and you have a great ride.

Voice sounded different

I have been listening to all the books in order. This performance seemed somewhat sluggish. Story still great

Oh Thank Goddness - Re-Record!

Would you consider the audio edition of Seduction in Death to be better than the print version?

I heard that a couple of the books were re-recorded but I thought that they could not be that bad - so no I would not go back and get the re-recorded versions. I have the entire collection and have listened to them for years but I never noticed that the old version did not have the right voices. I was listening to the old version tonight and not even one chapter in I had to stop because it was driving me crazy. Then I found the re-recorded version. It is all better now. :-) All the right voices are there.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of them

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

Keep up the great work Susan Ericksen! If you ever stop reading Eve Dallas I will just have to cry.

Seduction in Death

Another great addition to the series! The narrator did a great job again with characters and bringing the story alive. And I was happy that there wasn’t a preview at the end of this book!

The character's voices are different...

The story was good, but the reader changed the way she voiced the characters in this story. They are all different and almost spoken in a dragging way. It was very distracting and took away from the enjoyment of this particular book.

It was all a game!

It’s late spring in NYC in the year 2060 and beautiful young women are being murdered. Eve Dallas and her aide Peabody catch a case that looks like a suicide, but Eve has a hunch it was murder. When a second woman turns up dead, by what appears to be a different man visually, Eve deduces that there are two murders with the same method of drugging their victims. The third victim was left for dead, but survives and her retelling of events blows the case wider open. It’s a race against time to gather evidence and arrest the murders. Peabody and McNabb have been having problems and break up, but don’t worry because they can’t resist each other! Charles Monroe has found someone he’s falling in love with, too! Narration is excellent!

Good job all.

As usual a lovely story. I simply adore the dynamics between Eve and Roarke. The murder, investigation, apprehension, and ultimate fate of the perpetrators left me with a question. It may be asked in others of the series, but even more so in this book. Were these perps a product of their upbringing? OR did the way they came into being figure into their psychology? One was obviously a psychopath, but was it nature or nurture? Don't worry, the story is complete with a rather satisfactory ending. Just an interesting question to ponder. Was that the author's intent, or am I reading too much into this? Either way, awesome story made even better with the wonderful narration of Susan Ericksen. Good job all.

Enjoyable

Would you listen to Seduction in Death again? Why?

Possibly not. Sometimes in this series Susan Eriksons performance is a little slower making all the voices slightly different. This is one of the times. I still enjoyed the book though.

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

i always listen to the books quickly but 12 hours in one sitting might be a bit much.

Any additional comments?

This was an interesting concept with Lucious and Kevin. Not your average killers. Very interesting.
