I think this is one of my favorites from the In Death Series. I really like Norah Roberts and when I read everything possible by Norah Roberts I decided to try JD Robb because I am huge fan of her other books. I had never listened to audio-books but these are highly addicting. Susan Ericksen does a really entertaining job with the narrating. I tried to read one of these books and stopped after 2 chapters to go fine the audio-book so I could get the feeling back in the characters. I think Lieutenant Dallas, Eve is absolutely wonderful and who wouldn't love sexy Roarke. The picture I have in my head when Roberts describe him sizzles, especially with there chemistry. I can't wait till October for the next one to be available. I sometimes wish Peabody didn't sound so weird but I guess you can only do so many female voices. I think this whole series rocks.

What made the experience of listening to Survivor in Death the most enjoyable?
The Inclusion of a young child as a main character made this really enjoyable. Eve is always so hesitant in her dealings with children, so to have a plot where Eve and Roarke are in such close proximity to this character is brilliant.
What other book might you compare Survivor in Death to and why?
I don't like comparing books with others, each is separate from the other.
To make an attempt at similar types, though, perhaps Tami Hoag books could be of similar type. Readers could also try Kate Kingsbury, Ann Charles, Elizabeth Lowell is another favourite and there are others to be found.
Also it might be pertinent to write that J D Robb is actually Nora Roberts (for those who don't know) and Nora has written some really good mysteries under her own name, i.e., Angels Fall, Sanctuary, Hot Rocks and others. These are good reading as well. Don't know if they are all available as audio but some are.
Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?
Nixie Swisher the little girl who plays such a large part in the novel. I think she was performed really well and drawn as a character really well, too.

Any additional comments?
This book was an interesting look at how Dallas interacts with a child which is in itself funny. I loved the dynamics of the relationships. It was an emotive story having a child at the centre of it. Loved it.
