Publisher's Summary

The incomparable J. D. Robb presents the latest moving and suspenseful novel in the number-one New York Times best-selling Eve Dallas series.
In a decrepit and long-empty New York building, a man begins the demolition process by swinging a sledgehammer into a wall. When the dust clears, he finds two skeletons wrapped in plastic behind it. The man is Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s billionaire husband, Roarke, and he summons her immediately. His latest real estate project is going to be on hold for a while, because by the time Eve and her crew are finished searching the premises, there are 12 murders to be solved.
After a little digging reveals that the place housed a makeshift shelter for troubled and homeless teenagers back in the mid-2040s, Eve tracks down the people who worked there. Between their recollections and the brilliant work of the force’s new forensic anthropologist, Eve begins to put names and faces to the skeletal remains. They are all girls. A tattooed tough teenager who dealt in illegal drugs. The runaway daughter of a pair of well-to-do doctors. They all had their stories. And they all lost their chance for a better life.
Everyone has something to hide. And when Eve discovers a stunning connection between the victims and someone she knows, she is even more driven to reveal the secrets of the place that was called The Sanctuary - and to find the evil concealed in one human heart.

Good, not her best. A diversion

Would you try another book from J. D. Robb and/or Susan Ericksen?

Yes, some are better than others. This was not her best. The characters are great.

If you’ve listened to books by J. D. Robb before, how does this one compare?

Not at the top.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was a diversion and the characters cary the story.

Truly lame book

What would have made Concealed in Death better?

For some unknown reason, the author set this book in the year 2060. A sci-fi mystery is fine with me, but this was a total flop. The author showed little futurist thinking. She invented a couple of "new words" and referred to unexplained "urban wars", but the book was full of current slang, contemporary characters, institutions and technology.

What could J. D. Robb have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Drop the unsuccessful gimmick of setting the book in the future.

Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

She was fine; the book was terrible.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

It was so bad in parts that it was amusing, especially the plot line of the missionary going to Africa and being eaten by a lion. I am glad to hear that lions are not extinct, but I greatly doubt that they will be roaming free and eating people.
