I love the newly reissued books in this series! Our beloved Peabody speaks in her wonderful, distinctive voice and all the other characters (especially the NYPSD crew) go through the wringer solving this case. It was always one of my favorite books with regard to bringing forth background info on secondary characters and now it is simply perfect.

This book was one of my favorites in the series.
Roarke finally learns the entire back story with his mother and father, and it was written so beautifully that you wanted to reach into the book and give him a hug. I loved how Eve reacted as well, it was all so natural.
You can tell that Eve and Roarke are both growing in their marriage.
As for the murder, I thought the perpetrator came out of nowhere, though it was interesting to see a killer who really, truly thought he was doing something okay. He wasn't mean about it, just crazy. The action at the end really had me holding my breath, but of course everything turns out alright.
P.S. :Love the narrator! Susan IS the voice of Eve to me.

another great edition of the in death series, great to get a little more of Rourke's background
If you could sum up Portrait in Death in three words, what would they be?
Moving, Tender, Beautiful
What was one of the most memorable moments of Portrait in Death?
When Eve went to Roarke. I've listened to that chapter many times since I finished the book.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Two parts. When Roarke finally tells Eve about his Mother and when she goes to him in Ireland.
Any additional comments?
This book focuses on Roarke and his family. It's beautiful. Definitely one of the books I will relisten to and one of my favourites so far.
