Summary

A new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series: Lt. Eve Dallas must separate rumors from reality when a woman who traffics in other people's secrets is silenced.
The chic Manhattan nightspot Du Vin is not the kind of place Eve Dallas would usually patronize, and it's not the kind of bar where a lot of blood gets spilled. But that's exactly what happens one cold February evening.
The mortally wounded woman is Larinda Mars, a self-described "social information reporter," or as most people would call it, a professional gossip. As it turns out, she was keeping the most shocking stories quiet, for profitable use in her side business as a blackmailer. Setting her sights on rich, prominent marks, she'd find out what they most wanted to keep hidden and then bleed them dry. Now someone's done the same to her, literally - with a knife to the brachial artery.
Eve didn't like Larinda Mars. But she likes murder even less. To find justice for this victim, she'll have to plunge into the dirty little secrets of all the people Larinda Mars victimized herself. But along the way, she may be exposed to some information she really didn't want to know...

Gossip Kills

J. D Robb never disappoints! If this is your first encounter with Eve Dallas, you're way too late and can't start here - even though this book is both interesting and intriguing.

I love the forays into the etymology of a word! You don't question it yourself until that moment. Definitely a 'page turner', Susan Ericksen is a fantastic narrator, doing the accents and the genders perfectly!

Delightfully full of secrets!

Another great Eve Dallas story. This one is lighter (less gruesomely explicit) than some have been, with great moments of humor. I'd say though that this is one that that doesn't stand alone as well, but leans on several of the others, so it's not a good one to start with if you're unfamiliar with the series. There are direct references in particular to Glory in Death, Portrait in Death, and even Devoted in Death that figure significantly in understanding the story. Nice character relationship moments; they really have settled together into a family. As always, Susan Ericksen delivers them to us with skill. If you're already a fan of the series, I predict you'll enjoy this book. If you're new to it, don't start with this one. You won't appreciate the character moments if you haven't traveled with them a while to get here.

A fun who did it.

This is book 45 in the series and Robb has not repeated a story. She also changes the formula from time to time to keep the reader engaged. This book is a bit of a change just to keep things exciting. I am amazed that Robb’s Death Series is still as exciting and fresh as in the beginning. It is a rare author that can achieve this longevity. The main thing I like about Robb is her fascinating characters. She has a large array of them in this series and brings different ones out to fit the story. In this case, Eve Dallas meets with Dr. Garnet DeWinter, the forensic anthropologist, who works at the city morgue. They are meeting at a new restaurant called Du Vin (no big surprise we find out that Roarke, Eve’s husband owns the place) for lunch when gossip columnist Larinda Mars arrives and then collapses. Garnet and Eve try to save her but she dies. Eve decides she was murdered and the team is on the case.
I started reading this series years ago because it was set in the future about 2060 or so in New York City. I was curious as to how the author would see the future, what stays the same, what is very different, how does technology, automobiles etc. evolve. I found Robb’s future quite intriguing. Eva Dallas is a tough, cool-headed, competent detective. I like stories about strong women. This is a slower paced investigative type story and the reader gets the clues at the same time Dallas does. Great fun trying to figure out “who dun it”.

The book is about thirteen hours long. Susan Ericksen does a great job narrating the book. She has been the only narrator for this series. Ericksen is an actress, writer, linguist and is married to David Colacci another well-known audiobook narrator. Ericksen has won the Audie and numerous Earphone awards. For the audiobook narrator the Audie is equivalent to winning the Oscar or the Tony.
