Summary

At exactly 7:30 p.m., Walter Pettibone arrived home to over a hundred friends and family shouting, "surprise!" It was his birthday. Although he had known about the planned event for weeks, the real surprise was yet to come. At 8:45 p.m., a woman with emerald eyes and red hair handed him a glass of champagne. One sip of birthday bubbly, and he was dead.

The woman's name is Julie Dockport. No one at the party knew who she was. But Detective Eve Dallas remembers her all too well. Eve was personally responsible for her incarceration nearly ten years ago. And now, let out on good behavior, she still has nothing but bad intentions. It appears she wants to meet Dallas again - in a reunion neither will forget...

great :)

another great listen I love these audio books Susan Erikson is perfect as Dallas and does an amazing job voicing Roarke and peapody etc. Dallas confronts her demons in this episode and I have to say I found it hard to listen to but it was very well written and performed

Great Backstory for Roarke!

I loved the side plot with Roarke even more than the main murder, which is becoming more and more of a thing as the series progresses. The murders? Interesting. The side characters? Engrossing.

The voices are back

Would you consider the audio edition of Reunion in Death to be better than the print version?

Love Susan Ericksen's narration! This is a re-recording of one of the first audio books in the series (no, they weren't done in order) and the voices of the characters are what we've grown to know and love.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Eve, of course. Why, because she's Eve Dallas.

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

Everything! She's very good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The hotels in Dallas.. the upgraded one from her childhood, and Roarke's.

Any additional comments?

I heard a year ago Susan Ericksen was going to re-record a number of the earliest recorded books, I think starting with Seduction, saying when the recording started, the characters were new to her and didn't know them as well. So good to see the releases are now coming.. Seduction, Reunion, Purity and now Portrait. Good move Brilliance audio!!

The Best author for Scii-fi and Romance

Nora Roberts (writting as JD Robb) delivers yet again in creating a realistic sense of what the future may hold while engaging the reader in a fascinating detective story. Flying cars, pedestrians on glides instead of sidewalks and the craving for a "tube of pepsi" or a meal from the "auto-chef" are all integrated seamlessly into the narrative. Like the best police partners, the narrator too does an EXCELLENT job allowing the reader to imagine each character. She is one of the few narrators for whom I am a groupie and would listen to any story she performs. I am so glad she consistently reads for this series.

Among the best in the series

What made the experience of listening to Reunion in Death the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the introduction of Peadbody's parents! The characters related to the crime were all interesting, and the take down at the end was all Eve.

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

The introduction of Peabody's parents.

Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Voices all stayed pretty true to form.

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

Yes

I missed this one and just purchased

If you could sum up Reunion in Death in three words, what would they be?

Couldn't sum up in only three words too much going on .

Who was your favorite character and why?

Eve, and Peabody...... but all the characters and the emotions are fantastic

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

Susan Ericksen brought this book to life, Peabody's parents, when Eve and Rorke go to Dallas and she returns to the hotel where she left her father. So much emotion and power in the telling. This story was a knock out and done beautifully

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I missed this one even though I have 39 books in the series. I just purchased when it was on sale and glad I did. So much in this story.

Any additional comments?

Even though I've listened to all the previous "In Death" books before this one. It didn't loose anything for me it really made some things clearer. Eve and Rorke both have lots of baggage from their childhood, Eve's being the most horrible. However they support each other. That is the bottom line. I've really like this series so far and glad I went back and got this book.

Another very good addition to the series

this is the third book in a row where you know the killer from the beginning. In this book, as in the others, you can get into the killers head and know what she is thinking and what she is planning. I really like that approach. This book, and the two previous books, Seduction in Death and Betrayal in Death, are my favorites so far. Reunion in Death is about a killer woman, whom Dallas put in jail 10 years ago, who is now out of jail and back on her killing spree. Dallas is determined to track her down and finish her for good. McNabb and Peabody are continuing with their relationship. Monroe and Dr. Demato are continuing with their relationship. If you have read any of my previous reviews, you know that I have a love/hate relationship with Eve Dallas. I think she is the meanest, most short tempered and snarlkiest of characters. In this book she is moderate hateful, but still quite mean compared to other characters. Peabody is my favorite character and in this book you will meet her very sweet parents. They are in town for a visit and I love them, JD Robb creates fantastic characters that come to life, including the cat. The narrator is extremely talented and gives each characters a recognizable voice.
