Summary

Lieutenant Eve Dallas returns in a fast-paced new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author J. D. Robb.
Nature versus nurture...
The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park's ice skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be.
Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD, but never one like this. After reviewing security videos, it becomes clear that the victims were killed by a sniper firing a tactical laser rifle, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the locations where the shooter could have set up seem endless, the list of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer.
Eve's husband, Roarke, has unlimited resources - and genius - at his disposal. And when his computer program leads Eve to the location of the sniper, she learns a shocking fact: There were two - one older, one younger. Someone is being trained by an expert in the science of killing, and they have an agenda. Central Park was just a warm-up. And as another sniper attack shakes the city to its core, Eve realizes that though we're all shaped by the people around us, there are those who are just born evil....

Brilliant series - not my usual

No Vampires/ Werewolves no supernatural. The series is about Detective Eve Dallas set in the near future about 50 years. I have read all 43 books and about another 10 short stories. I get the new book as soon as it is out. Eve is not a heroine who jumps from bed to bed she is deeply in love with her husband Roarke. Each story is complex enough and detailed enough as you watch her find clues. I know it's not my usual but it is a series I love, sorry.

Continuing with this excellent series

Would you listen to Apprentice in Death again? Why?

Yes certainly. I love all the books and characters in this series and often listen to them again and again.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the interesting plot line. The creepy personality of the Apprentice is fascinating as so well done.

What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I enjoy Susan Ericksen's performances on all of the books she reads. She paints a very interesting word picture of all the characters. The different voices are perfectly suited to characters as I imagine them to be.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did have an emotional reaction to the book. I felt sorry for the sibling and mother and step-father of the apprentice. I also always enjoy the wonderfully done connection between Rorke and Eve. The scene between Rorke, Eve and Summerset is very emotional.

Any additional comments?

This writer is always sure to please. The series has been running for so long I keep thinking that it will lose its impact but thankfully it never does. Keep up the good work.

Gripping

I am amazed, this is book 43 in the Death series and J. D. Robb keeps coming up with new ideas. Most series go stale at about book 25 but not Robb’s.

In this story we have a sniper on the loose. All of Dallas’s staff is on the case along with a new person, Lowenbaum, a weapons’ expert. He is head of the SWAT squad and is acting as a weapons consultant for Dallas. We might have a new member of the squad, a female uniformed officer named Shelby. To lighten the story, we have Bella’s birthday party; the usual banter with Summerset and Rourke is redecorating the house.

The book is well written and fast paced. The plot winds around and snaps at the reader. The suspense builds during the book and one just cannot put the book down. Robb has a way of writing that grabs the reader’s attention and holds it until the last word. Robb mixes humor with murder to prevent the reader from becoming overwhelmed by the violence. I think it is best to read this series in order so one can get to know all the characters that weave in and out of the various books. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

Susan Erickson does an excellent job narrating the series. I am so glad the publisher kept Erickson as the narrator for the entire series. Erickson is a classically trained actress and an award winning audiobook narrator.
