Summary

Lieutenant Eve Dallas must immerse herself in her billionaire husband Roarke’s world of big business to uncover the identity of a hit man in this thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling In Death series.

On Manhattan’s East Side a woman lies dead at the bottom of the stairs, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.

A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the building, the lieutenant knows Marta’s murder was the work of a killer who’s trained, but not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

But when someone steals the files out of Marta’s office and the killer’s violent streak begins to escalate, Eve knows she has to draw him out, even if it means using herself as bait…

There are much better out there.

It might be because I got the abridged but this book did it hold my interest as others. It was my first time with an abridged JDRobb and I won't do it again. I missed the bantering between Dallas and Peabody and Rouke and Dallas relationship.

over the top violence

this book rolled around in the violence so much that it took away from the story.

Too short

What disappointed you about Calculated in Death?

The story was too short and not filled with the usual richness of sideline characters that I am used to enjoying with this particular writer. I never buy abridged novels for this same reason. It seems like there is always something missing.

What could J. D. Robb have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Increased the story to include more interesting characters. More mystery as I figured this one out15 minutes into the book.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator was one I am very used to hearing with JD Robb.

What character would you cut from Calculated in Death?

I would add characters and depth and mystery. Not take away from the characters all ready there. I just expected more . I won't be purchasing these mini books any more. Really not worth the price or a credit. Short and lacking is not always better.

Any additional comments?

I will try not to purchase anymore books of this nature that have such a short duration. Something has to be left out time wise. I wonder how well this story could have run with more time and effort towards twists and plots.
