Ericksen Steals the Show

I've only been hooked by one narrator before and that was Scott Brick. I considered Brick to be in a class by himself, that is, until I started listening to Susan Ericksen's narration of the Death series. Ericksen is every bit as good as Brick and possibly better. I've now purchased 17 Death books and have consecutively listened to 9 (putting nearly 30 others in my library on hold). Though all the stories take place in NYC, 40 years from now, Robb is not writing sci-fi. Though 2050's Earth-bound technologies and societal changes are believable, his very brief references to farming and resorts on planets, moons and/or space stations are not believable. Luckily, they're easy to overlook since all the action takes place in NYC. Though Robb's "who-Done-It" plots are well constructed and well written, they're totally dependent on the interplay between his 2 main characters, Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her Irish-accented, billionaire husband, "Rourke." Not only does Ericksen give them great voices and take them through an incredible range of emotions, she does the same with the entire range of both the ongoing support and story-specific characters. She does male voice so well, it's impossible to believe that there isn't an ensemble cast of readers. Perhaps the only downside in Robb's writing is the frequency and intensity of Eve and Rourk's lovemaking. While each encounter is beautifully written and read, the frequency of them stretches credibility of it. People who are so tired they can barely walk up stairs and so emotionally drained from seeing disemboweled bodies, do not make love and have multiple orgasms, 2 and 3 times a day.

Great Listen!!!!!!!!

Eve is at it again. Once again Roake is pulled into the investigation, because of his relationship with the woman that have been killed. Even though it is a little like the 1st book in that aspect, it is still different. With Susan as narrator this book just couldn't go wrong or be bad. She does an excellent job with the many different voices, especially Roakes. I would recommend this audio to anybody!! Would recommend also to read Naked in Death 1st. Just helps with understanding Eve's & Roake's relationship & their backgrounds.
