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.

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.
