Publisher's Summary

In a time when technology can reveal the darkest of secrets, there's only one place to hide a crime of passion - in the heart.The first victim was found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas had no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provided Eve with a long list of suspects - including her own lover, Roarke.As a woman, Eve was compelled to trust the man who shared her bed. But as a cop, it was her job to follow every lead...to investigate every scandalous rumor...to explore every secret passion, no matter how dark. Or how dangerous.

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.

Okay, I'm officially addicted to this series now

STORY (suspense) - I listened to one of the later books in this series and liked it enough to try Book 1, then this Book 2. I must confess that now I'm going to attempt to listen to the whole humongous series in order. Yes, it's that good. It's set somewhere around the year 2050 in New York, so there are some cool futuristic gadgets. Eve Dallas, the main character, is a young police lieutenant who is dedicated to her job. Her romantic interest, Roark, is a sexy billionaire. In each book of the series Eve faces a new crime, and in each book the romance with Roark progresses a little bit more.

This book, Glory in Death, begins with the murder of a famous female attorney. Her throat is cut as she is leaving a bar late at night on the wrong side of town. Why was she there? Had someone she had prosecuted in the past killed her out of revenge? Could it be her ex-husband? The story is fast-paced with great characters. First and foremost, it is about finding the murderer, but the romance between Eve and Roark is sweet and sexy and is a nice filler between the more intense scenes.

PERFORMANCE - Not only is this series well-written, but it's also very well-performed. Susan Ericksen does a wonderful job of distinguishing between characters and portraying their various emotions. Love the robotic voice she gives to the droids!

OVERALL - Great book! Highly recommended for anyone who likes this genre. Probably would appeal more to women since there's romance and the main character is female, but pretty sure guys would enjoy it as well. Eve has a bit of a potty mouth so be prepared for some F words and other expletives, but I wouldn't say it's excessive. The sex scenes are hot but they don't last long and aren't very explicit. The story stands alone and the mystery is solved within this book, but the romance between Eve and Roark continues...

Excellent story.

Slightly let down for me by the narrator's Irish accent for Roarke - just didn't sound right.

Just love this book

If you could sum up Glory in Death: In Death, Book 2 in three words, what would they be?

Funny, exciting, romantic

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite characters are Roarke and Eve. Shame I can't afford to just buy every book one after the other or I would. Cannot recommend highly enough

Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I love Susan Ericksen as a narrator. She does distinctive accents and you can tell easily who she is depicting. She is a very clever audio reader.

Any additional comments?

I'm not usually a fan of romance. I read and listen to crime but the romance in this book is so different. I just love it.
