Publisher's Summary

Number 12 is an urban legend in 2060 New York City. The hot club in the 1960s, it is now reported to be haunted...and cursed. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called there to investigate the apparent murder of Radcliff Hopkins, its new owner and the grandson of the man who made Number 12 a cultural icon. Several bullets from a banned gun end his dream of returning the building to its former glory.With everyone around her talking about the supernatural, pragmatic Eve won't let rumors of ghosts distract her from hard evidence. The case becomes even more bizarre when it appears to be linked to the suspicious disappearance of a rock star eighty-five years ago. As Eve searches for the connection, logic clashes with the unexplainable. She may be forced to face the threat of something more dangerous than a flesh-and-blood killer.

You'll hate yourself in the morning

Okay, you're hooked on In Death and you're going to buy this no matter what my review says. I get it - I ignored the bad review to buy it, too.

Here's the thing - it's bad. Really, really bad. Maybe Roberts had the flu when she wrote it. Maybe Ericksen caught it from her. But it stinks. The plot is laughable. Peabody, Meara, Roark and, it pains me to write this, even Dallas act so stupid you'd swear they couldn't solve a glide cart stickup.

So, all my fellow fans, go ahead and buy it. It's only three hours long, which means it's cheap, so do yourself a favor and spend the $10 in cash to buy it. That way, once you've finished it and need to get the bad taste out of your mouth, you'll still have a credit left to get a GOOD book.

I'm off to Born in Death with high hopes...

Oh - and if you hate this one, please come back and write a review...

Save Your Money!!

I just forced myself to listen all the way through "Eternity in Death," and made myself try to listen to this book because I paid for it. Let me save you time and aggravation: Save your money!!
I am a seasoned audio-book listener with a library of over 75 audiobooks in this genre. I can tell you that this book, if the curse words were removed, would be better placed in the children's section. It's written on a fifth-grade level (if that); the plot is flat and the reader turns the lead character's side-kick into an audible version of Gomer Pile.
The female lead character lacks just that- character. She's curt, bossy, and one-dimensional. Her love interest is even less developed; leaving one to believe the author used Johnny Bravo as inspiration. His character is transparent, self-centered and exudes machismo.
I keep expecting the side-kick to say, "Aw, golly gee; I thought the amusement park was haunted by a real ghost, not the former owner in a Halloween Mask. "
Bottom Line: Wasted Money, Angry Listener. I'd laugh if I hadn't just spent $30 for two of these audiobooks.
