Publisher's Summary

Two young children disappear from their East Side home in New York City, their nanny killed in cold blood. As Lieutenant Eve Dallas begins to unravel the crime scene and search for Henry and Gala MacDermit, she's drawn into the twisted mind of a kidnapper who will stop at nothing to take revenge. Horrific threats concerning the brother and sister hit far too close to home for Eve, drawing her back into memories of her own tortured childhood.
But Eve knows that there's no time to waste on the past, and with every passing hour her determination to bring the children safely home strengthens. Eve and her team find themselves following an electronic breadcrumb trail left by a boy desperate to escape the evil witch. Their investigation into the kidnapper's sordid past reveals violent coercion, ritualistic killings, and chilling bloodlust - making her terrifying plans for the children abundantly clear.

Was she in a hurry?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would always recommend J.D. Robb, but I would recommend that her books be read in order, since character development is so important. This shorter story leaves out a lot of the usual interactions and behind the scenes development. I felt that it was just a little "off" from her usual stories, as if she didn't have time to expand it fully. It even seemed to be read a bit more slowly than others in the series!


What was one of the most memorable moments of Taken in Death?

I liked the relationship between the twins: the communication that they had together. Would have liked more of it, though.


Which scene was your favorite?

The end: the children showing their gratitude to Eve, who doesn't know how to respond.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to it in one sitting. Always want to, but usually can't because of their length.


Any additional comments?

I don't know why this book seemed to be abbreviated, but I hope Robb gets back to her usual detail and length. Nevertheless, she remains my favorite author.

Taken In Death

Great short story. I love to see Eve's growth in interactions with each character and how she reacts to children. She has come a long way since Naked In Death the first book in this series.
