Publisher's Summary

No affairs. No criminal connections. No DNA. No clues. Eve Dallas may be the best cop in the city - not to mention having the lavish resources of her husband Roarke at her disposal - but the Swisher case has her baffled. The family members were murdered in their beds with brutal, military precision. The state-of-the-art security was breached, and the killers used night vision to find their way through the cozy middle-class house. Clearly, Dallas is dealing with pros. The only mistake they made was to overlook the nine-year-old girl cowering in the dark in the kitchen... Now Nixie Swisher is an orphan - and the sole eyewitness to a seemingly inexplicable crime. Kids are not Dallas' strong suit. But Nixie needs a safe place to stay, and Dallas needs to solve this case. Not only because of the promise she made to Nixie. Not only for the cause of justice. But also to put to rest some of her own darkest memories - and deepest fears. With her partner Peabody on the job, and watching her back - and with Roarke providing the kind of help only he can give - Lieutenant Eve Dallas is running after shadows, and dead-set on finding out who's behind them.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Rocks!

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.

J D Robb gives us a Gem of a story.

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.

Brill as always

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.
