Publisher's Summary

On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, a woman lies dead at the bottom of a brownstone’s basement steps, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.
A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the brownstone, she knows Marta’s murder is the work of a killer who’s trained, yet not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.
Eve learns that on the day of her murder Marta was assigned to work on three audits, and begins to suspect that she was killed to cover up fraudulent activity. Eve is good at catching criminals, not crunching numbers, but luckily, she has her billionaire husband, Roarke, to figure out which companies in Marta’s files aren’t on the up-and-up.
When someone steals the files from Marta’s office, Eve must immerse herself in Roarke’s world of big business to figure out who’s cruel and callous enough to hire a hit on an innocent woman. And as the killer’s violent streak starts to escalate, Eve knows she has to draw him out, even if it means using herself as bait....

Still a fan!

I think it must be hard to keep things fresh after writing 36+ books, short stories and so on. Roberts has a good equation going in the In Death series- a crime happens, Eve and Peabody investigate, Roarke is drawn into the investigation, there are a few sex scenes, Roarke worries about Eve, Eve meets with Mira, they figure it out, wrap it up and there is an op to catch the bad guy. And Trina sometimes makes an appearance. The crime changes and the supporting characters (Mavis, Leonardo, Baxter and so on) have a big or small role depending on the crime and how much they can help. She writes a good story, the characters are old friends and well written. The story here is a solid one. I will continue to read this series because I can count on Eve and crew to entertain.

Love that Dallas!

I was so blown away by New York to Dallas it almost spoiled me. I did not think Celebrity in Death was nearly as good. But Calculated in Death is better. I could have used a little more Sommerset as I love the interaction between them but all Eve and Roarke fans will enjoy this book.

Absolutely brilliant!

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

I love reading the series but I particularly find it easy to listen to it while I was doing my housework. It made the chores so much easier to get thro!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I am a great fan of Eve and I also love the chemistry between her and Roarke.

Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favourite?

Eve of course.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I love Eve's sense of humour, be it intentional or not.

"book 36 and I am still a huge fan!"

The Eve Dallas "In Death" series is still my favorite. Every book in this series is a keeper and with each book we learn more and experience more of all the character we love.
Great Book - The series is unique
Great Author - I have been a fan from book one and i hope there is a book 100!
Great Narrator - Susan Eriksen is my no one favorite narrator and she brings every character to life exactly as I imagined them. She IS Eve Dallas!
I would LOVE them to make a movie of the series!
