Another excellent book in this series. This narrator is the Perfect voice. I will always be first in line to purchase any of the Eve Dallas books, but always want this narrator used.

This book is one of my favorites in the series because it is so heartbreaking. The victims and the killer are so sad. The story of Eve and Roarke will tug at your heartstrings as well.

Susan Erikson gives another brilliant performance in this gripping story, full if intrigue, surprises and twists right up to the end.
This book is number 24 in the "in death" series, but it is the first one that I have read/listened to. The main protagonist is New York cop Eve Dallas and she sets about trying to solve the apparently motiveless killing of an elementary school teacher. What I hadn't realised from the blurb is that story is set about 50 years in the future - this only dawned on me some time into the story! The plot itself was OK, and there are some nice twists and turns in the story, but for me it was spoilt by the totally incredible (in the literal sense) identity of the sociopathic serial killer!
The narrator for the most part does a great job, the only exception being her Irish accent. Unfortunately, one of the main characters is Irish! Obviously, this is my personal opinion, and this series (including this book) get 4*-plus reviews on the US site, so don't let this one review put you off - I'm tempted to give the series another go, but this one was just a little to implausible for me.
the plot was very good. detective Eve's language is crude & foul. too much love birds dialogue was boring & tacky.
Love how Eve showed her vulnerable self as she experienced the manipulation of her husbands past lover. threw her enough to not be the completely focused cop that she is normally
