Publisher's Summary

With the precision of a surgeon, a serial killer preys on the most vulnerable souls of the world's city streets. The first victim: a sidewalk sleeper, found dead in New York City. No bruises, no signs of struggle. Just a laser-perfect, fist-sized hole where his heart had once been. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is assigned to investigate. But in the heat of a cat-and-mouse game with the killer, Dallas' job is suddenly on the line. Now her hands are tied...between a struggle for justice - and a fight for her career.

Unbelievable Audio

I could only say this, I'm addicted to this audio set. The consistency of the voices is amazingly acurate. I have to say she does a great job..

One of the Better Ones

This was the first book in the "Death" series that I read and it was so good, I started reading the series from the beginning. JD Robb has developed a world of complex characters that the reader begins to think of as close personal friends. The plot line is good, taking enough twists to keep you guessing. Dallas is a very believable character and one in which many women who are strong, capable people sick and tired of stupidity can easily relate to. The love scenes get a little tedious for me, but nevertheless are signature pieces of JD Robb. They don't ruin the plot in the least. Susan Erickson is at her best as the reader and the voices are crisp and identifiable. This is well worth buying.

Loved it!

I love J.D. Robb's 'in Death' series. The interaction between Eve Dallas and her aide is just super with the right amount of humour. With the action set 40'ish years from now, there are still people who need help and those willing to give it, without making this a post-war setting. Susan Ericksen reads it very well. Worth a credit.

Intense stuff

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would always recommend the in death series to people but I would recommend they don't begin with this book. This is the most intense of the in death books so far and I think you need to know the characters well to appreciate it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Eve and Roarke always

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

Roarke with his lovely way of speaking and Irish accent.

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

This book was very emotive for me. Eve is so strong. The part with testing was awful but amazing at the same time.

Any additional comments?

Read the first books before reading this one. It is brilliant.
