Publisher's Summary

Eve Dallas is one tough cop. She's got no problem dealing with a holiday reveler in a red suit who plunges 37 stories and gives new meaning to the term "sidewalk Santa". But when she gets back to the station and Trudy Lombard shows up, it's all Eve can do to hold it together.Instantly, she's plunged back into the past, to the days when she was a vulnerable, traumatized girl - trapped in foster care with the twisted woman who now sits in front of her, smiling.Trudy claims she just wanted to see how Eve was doing. But Eve's husband, Roarke, suspects otherwise - and his suspicions prove correct when Trudy arrives at his office demanding money in exchange for keeping the ugly details of his wife's childhood a secret. Barely restraining himself, Roarke shows her the door - and makes it clear that she'd be wise to get out of New York and never bother him or his wife again.But just a few days later, Trudy's found on the floor of her hotel room, a mess of bruises and blood.A cop to the core, Eve is determined to solve the case, if only for the sake of Trudy's bereaved son. Unfortunately, Eve is not the only one to have suffered at this woman's hands, and she and Roarke will follow a circuitous, dangerous path to find out who turned this victimizer into a victim.

Christmas Eve

I am a big fan of the "In Death" series, and this is one of my favorites. Three reasons why:

1. There are no gruesome serial murders; one of my few complaints with this series is that too many of the plots hinge on serial killers. Motivations for the murders here are straightforward.

2. We learn more about Eve's tragic back story and see a new, vulnerable, and totally believable side to her character.

3. We get to attend Eve and Roarke's Christmas gala, and watch amused as the socially challenged Eve helps with the arrangements for "this .... thing .... tonight." ("It's called a party," the patient Roarke responds.)

All in all, a great way for fans of Eve, Roarke, and friends to get into the holiday spirit!

first audio JD Robb

I've really enjoyed reading JD Robb's In Death series. I decided to listen to this one as I had a ridiculous amount of housework to do that I couldn't put off while I curled up with a good book. I enjoyed the listen. The reader does a good job with voices, accents, etc. Many of the characters didn't sound as I expected. Peabody is far more goofy in the audio and McNab is so very dorky. I'd also love Roarke's voice to be more manly. But she does a fantastic job with the accent and these mild concerns didn't stop me from ordering Kindred In Death, the newest JD Robb, from audible. The second listen was even better as I knew what to expect re: Peabody and McNab.
