This book is a quick read 90-page novella, done in wonderful Robb style.
A shorter, but still satisfying Eve Dallas mystery. Dallas and Dr. Mira are on an escaped killer's Christmas list and he is knocking them off quickly.
Another winner from J. D. Robb/Nora Roberts.
J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts is an excellent writer. I love her books!
Great author. Love her books.
this is a wonderful series! Short but still good reading
Eve's name has made a Christmas list, but it's not for being naughty or nice. It's for putting a serial killer behind bars. Now the escaped madman has her in his sights. With her husband, Roarke, at her side, Eve must stop the man from exacting his bloody vengeance--or die trying.
Very short book, Christmas theme, typical Robb, gritty, fast-moving,
this has to be good it is j,d. robb a.k.a. nora roberts
Short but sweet. Nice to read because you don't have to wait for a conclusion. Still has great Eve Dallas twists and turns!
The J.D. Robb "In Death" series are best when read in order - great series.
a short edition to the beloved in death series
I love powerful Lt. Eve Dallas and how the complex New York City crimes are solved. If you don't wanna bite her husband, don't read these books! Nora Robert's best writing is as JD Robb in this "In Death" series of some 30+ stories to date. I collect all of the JD Robb books, but skip the Roberts, whose stories are not as tight as those about Lt. Eve Dallas - ass kicker! If the future of New York City is like this, I fear these futuristic killers who are sneaky and complex.
A favorite series of mine, and a good read. I love the Eve Dallas books!
Good stuff as always...even for a shorty...
If you don't care for Nora Roberts BUT love Mystery/Dark Thrillers with a side of romance and a dash of comedy - then I think you'll love J.D. Robb's ... In Death series written by Nora Roberts alter ego.
I won't go into the details of the books but will tell you this: Superb character development, continuity of the story line (which means you really need to read the books in order although they can stand alone) is top notch, the relationships that are webbed and weaved together throughout each page are phenomenal and let's the reader 'really' get to know the characters.
Here's a list of all the books in order (I'm leaving off the 'In Death' part):
7.5 Midnight in Death (Silent Night Anthology)
12.5 Interlude in Death (Out of this World Anthology)
17.5 Remember When (1st part by Nora, 2nd by JD Robb - stories are connected)
22.5 Haunted in Death (Bump in the Night Anthology)
24.5 Eternity in Death (Dead in the Night Anthology)
26.5 Ritual in Death (Suite 606 Anthology)
29.5 Missing in Death (The Lost Anthology)
Lieutenant Eve Dallas is back, this time to track down a murderer who has escaped from an insane asylum, and whom Eve was responsible for capturing three years earlier. His intended victim list is short and specific; he's targeting all those responsible for his capture, with Eve as the final prize. Susan Ericksen captures the characters nicely, including the Irish-accented Roarke, Eve's husband. She reads with brisk pacing, appropriate emotion, and enough passion to satisfy listeners who are fans of the series. For those new to the Eve Dallas books, it might be better to begin with an earlier work. S.S.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine --
This is absolutely one of her best of the shorter In Death series books. I exclusively listen to the audio books since the reader Susan Erickson makes the characters come alive. The only complaint I have about this book, that due to it's shorter length, the side characters weren't included as much as I would have liked, but again, shorter story, so...
The story is a real mystery since, there is no body, a woman goes missing but it is not the aforesaid dead person. The murder is committed on the ferry while it is enroute with over 3,000 crew and passengers. And yet somehow, the killer gets out the body and him/herself out of a public restroom, leaves no blood trail, and disappears off the ferry before it docks. Who's the victim, what's the motive, how did the body get off the ferry, what really happened to that missing woman, and why did the killer take the body in the first place? A lot of interesting questions and answers that do not disappoint.
Again, Eve must grapple with that grey line between justice and the law. I find the circumstances of the questions always interesting, no matter how many times it's used. Where is the line; it can sometimes be a perplexing puzzle.
I received this audio book from Paperback Swap and am really happy that I am able to find audio books on this site for such a low cost. The only downside regarding this purchase was the quality of the audio book itself. There was some static throughout because the discs were pretty scratched up. It was just on the line of playing properly. I would suggest to anyone considering purchasing an audio book on this site that if it is possible, contact the poster and try to ascertain the condition. I have bought two other audio books, though, and they were in great shape, so 2 out of 3 isn't bad.
Another emjoyable read in this series. I always enjoy connecting with Robb's characters, although this books is so short some of my favorites were missing.
Nora Roberts writing as J. D. Robb, propels you into the darkest night of Lieutenant Eve Dallas's life---when a killer comes to call....
Short, but just as good as the others.
Any In Death book should be at the top of any reading list. Eve, Roarke, and the rest of the cast will enchant you, and the murder plots will enthrall you.- Grand Forks Herald

Gritty and steamy-booklist
Very suspenseful.-The Library Times
Quick read. Only 90 pages long. I love the In Death series!!
The number-one New York Times best selling in Death series explodes with intrigue, passion, and suspense.
This is a short 90 page book, as the original story was included in an anthology, but it's a definite read for any Eve Dallas fans.
Reading all of them in order!
This is a short (90 pages) story about Eve and Roarke. If you are a fan of this series you will enjoy this book.
This is an interesting series. It is a definite seat of the pants thriller.
A novella just 90 pages long, this story captures all the Eve Dallas/Roarke chemistry without much of the by-play between tangential characters. Though published in 2005, the book takes place during the first year of Dallas' & Roarke's marriage. On Christmas Eve, it is discovered that someone Eve put away 3 years before has escaped and is killing everyone connected to his conviction, ending with Eve. A fast and satisfying read.
At 90 pages this is a quick but satisfying read. To any fan this is a good addition to the series, especially if 'Holiday in Death' is read first.
this short story (its only 90 pages) was first published in the anthology "Silent Night". Eve and Roark are targets of a serial killer who has escaped from prison.
Short read but very good! She keeps you on your toes and interested in the story.
It may be short, but it packs all the things you expect of a J.D. Robb book between the covers!
Lieutenant Eve Dallas is in her usual form in this Christmas thriller. Lots of fun.
I'm a huge fan of the in death series and although this book is short, it does not disappoint!
Short quick story with Lt. Eve Dallas tracking a serial killer right before her first New Year's with her hubby Roarke.
My rating is more on the audiobook, than the story its self. The story was fine, but there was something off about the reader's voice this time. It was very distracting, and made it hard to get into the story.
