Summary

When recovering drug addict Lyle Pickering is found dead of an overdose, it looks like a tragic accident. But his sister Rochelle knows better, and so does Lieutenant Eve Dallas. Lyle was murdered, and the evidence points directly to his old street gang. 

As Eve and husband Roarke track the killer through the city's dive bars, drug dens and strip joints, another body is discovered. With connections growing between the living and the dead, and the body count on the rise, Eve knows she needs to close this case fast, before the killer's lust for power turns the city's streets into a bloodbath.

Dallas Obsessive

Fabulous as always!

I own all of the In Death titles, and have listened to each of them dozens of times. They are my go-to entertainment, and can guarantee that Dallas's New York is irresistible.

This book isn't as complex as many others, and there aren't the surprises or twists we usually enjoy , which was a bit disappointing, but the characters are as reliable and attractive as ever. As always, Susan Ericksen's narration is perfect.

But UK listeners - anyone outside the US - can't enter competition so don't bother counting the bells throughout the story. It's a shame, but probably to be expected. Would have appreciated to be told from the beginning though!

Always amazing

I just love the In Death series so much. I have listened to them all many times. This book I will say you should listen to if you already know the characters from the earlier books. There are so many different characters and I feel like they are so well described and brought in along the book series that it might be a lot to take in if you just tried to start from this book. For an avid fan it doesn't disappoint.

On a side note I was disappointed, like another reviewer, not to be able to enter the competition. I think that was very short sighted of the Macmillan book people.

Another winner

Really engaging story line and I was captured immediately. Narrator was excellent as always. Can’t wait for the next instalment of Eve and Roarke.

Nothing new

I have struggled with this series for the last several books. It wasn't a bad story just sort of repetitive. The narrator who is usually good with the voices, had a few that sounded just the same as the main character Eve. Maybe it's time to wrap the series up. Especially if they have gotten to the point of adding chimes to count to then direct you to the publishers website. Gimmicks aren't a good sign of a series doing well.

Connections abound

The title says it all for this foray into the world of Lt Dallas.

Connections abound.

Like many of the Dallas series what should (from the villains POV been an easy "sell" gets overturned because Dallas and company look deeper) .

From the stand point of being part of the In Death series this is a good outing. From the stand point of character growth and development this one hits is out of the park. I admit I read the In Death series as much, if not more so, for the joy of watching Dallas mature, developing connections of her own that deeply root her to her city; connections, rather than her origin story point which was basically single minded copness. Dallas now, is deeply connected to the city because of the people she is connected with.

Another wonderful aspect, showcased very well in this book, is the plethora (in joke here) of other characters that fill the world. In Death remains the story of a full and vivid world with a great many characters who are the top (or near top) in their respective fields who interact to help each other rather than tear each other down. This wold has all the fundamentally people being fundamentally people but many of those people are strong enough to build up other around them. It a jot seeing competent people being competent without the fall back of "miscommunication" which is often the staple of tales within the generalized romance genre.

When do I get the next one? Just asking because I'm like Oliver with this series.... "Can I have some more, please, JD?"
