Publisher's Summary

Eve Dallas deals with a homicide - and the holiday season - in the latest from the #1New York Times bestselling author.
Personal trainer Trey Ziegler was in peak physical condition. If you didn't count the kitchen knife in his well-toned chest.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon discovers a lineup of women who'd been loved and left by the narcissistic gym rat. While Dallas sorts through the list of Ziegler's enemies, she's also dealing with her Christmas shopping list - plus the guest list for her and her billionaire husband's upcoming holiday bash.
Feeling less than festive, Dallas tries to put aside her distaste for the victim and solve the mystery of his death. There are just a few investigating days left before Christmas, and as New Year's 2061 approaches, this homicide cop is resolved to stop a cold-blooded killer.

A Feast for In Death devotees

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

This book should not be missed by In Death fans. For a new In Death reader I would suggest starting somewhere else in the series, preferably Naked in Death Book 1. This book is a blend of the search for a murderer of a sleazy personal trainer and the vagaries of Eve and Roarke's Christmas which is more appreciated by those who follow the series.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I devour In Death books. I am always anxious for the next scene, the next chapter. This was no different.

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

Susan Ericksen is Eve Dallas. With the exception of 2 earlier books, every preformance (and there are over 40 stories and multiple recurring characters) imparts a distinct personality to every character. I could not imagine anyone else reading these books.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Feeney's Christmas present for both Eve and Roarke.

I enjoyed this book. Oh it was not up to J.D. Robb standards, but I still enjoyed the book.
I am not sure I like the new doctor that is trying to date Morris. I guess it's good there are new characters involved. But it's such a tight knit group you hate to see anyone bother the balance.

I was glad most of the regulars were there. I thoroughly enjoyed that. I enjoy the banter between Sommerset and Eve. I know a lot of what takes place is redundant but it is what make the book an In Death Series book. If these things are not in the book the book suffers in my opinion. The interaction between Roarke and Eve is paramount. The private moments between them is awesome and special. I look forward to them. Even if they are arguing or angry with each other it makes the book worthwhile. This book was close to getting there but not quite there. It was still enjoyable.

The book had a lot of twist and turns to where you were not sure who the killer was. It made it a bit fun. It was nice to see the boy (teko) back and helping Eve shop.

I still want to know who the candy thief is, when will Eve make Captain, and of course when will Eve and Roarke have a family. Eve it Eve she can make it all work. I agree with some other writers it would be nice to have a book on Eve and Feeny when they were partners. There are so many ways to go with this series.

As always Susan Erickson was spot on. I would not listen to the book if she wasn't the narrator. Even on an off day she is better than most.
