Publisher's Summary

Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

Dreadful, cliche ridden book

I accept that thrillers are by definition written to some sort of formula, but this book carries it to extremes - characters, plot, narrative and language, every cliche however hackneyed seems to be used. I gave up after a particularly laughable sex scene between the two main characters, which completely destroyed any credibility the book might have had claim to. I think this is only the fourth or fifth audiobook that I've not finished - out of nearly 500. It was that bad.

To make matters worse, the narrator was not very good; as the previous reviewer comments, she has a lot of difficulty with the Irish accent of one of the main characters, and generally was a tad melodramatic for my taste.

I see J D Robb has written nearly 40 books in this series, so some people must like them. Not me I'm afraid.

The start of a great series

Eve Dallas is the 'Jack Reacher' of the 21st Century, and I'm completely hooked on this series. This series is full of life, and Eve has the right kind of attitude for a 'kick-ass New York cop'.

Normally my wife is badly allergic to cliches, but for some reason the 'In Death' series carries off the occasional cliche with great aplomb and humour, and we both thoroughly enjoy the series.
