Technology has advanced in 2060 New York City, but childbirth has been the same since the beginning of time. And despite the brutal double homicide on Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s caseload, she has to be there for her pregnant friend Mavis, even if it means throwing the dreaded baby shower. . . But Mavis needs an even bigger favor now. Tandy Willowby, one of the moms-to-be in her class, has gone missing, just days before her due date – not even showing up at the shower at Eve and Roarke’s place that she’d been looking forward to so much. A recent emigrant from London, Tandy has few friends in New York, and no family. When Eve enters Tandy’s apartment and finds Mavis’s shower gift wrapped and ready on the table - and Tandy’s packed hospital bag still on the floor - her spine starts tingling. Normally, this would be turned over to Missing Persons. Eve has more than enough on her plate trying to find out who murdered Natalie Copperfield and her fiancé, both employed at a highly prestigious accounting firm. But Mavis wants no one but Eve on the case - and Eve can’t say no. She’ll have to track Tandy down while tracing the deals and double-crosses hidden in the files of some of the city’s richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against a particularly vicious killer. Luckily, she has her multimillionaire husband Roarke’s expertise to help with the numbers-crunching. But as he mines for the crucial data that will break the case wide open, Eve faces an all-too-real danger in the flesh-and-blood world. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 pianogal | 2/18/2014

    " I liked this one. The bad guys were kinda creepy, but with the baby and everything else, the murder was a smaller part of the plot. This one was more about Eve and her relationships with friends and family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith | 2/14/2014

    " Adequate as usual for a weekend read. Nothing earth shattering but enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 C.G. | 2/9/2014

    " The one in which Eve hosts a baby shower for Mavis! Hijinks ensue. Eve is solving a murder - and a missing person case, as a favour to Mavis - and the book doesn't neglect those - but it also spends a lot of time on the personal relationships which I love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosario | 1/29/2014

    " I thought the book was pretty good. First time with "the death" series by Nora Roberts. I am just starting to read her romance and death books. I will give them four stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon (shananagins) Jones | 1/22/2014

    " This series is fun, forgetable fluff. I listen to these on audio a lot and the narrator is really good. They are all very similar, and I forget which I've already read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 1/11/2014

    " This was one of the better ones of late. And, with a happy ending to boot! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deedee | 12/18/2013

    " Very good! I love crime novels and Nora Roberts writing. So I knew I was going to like this book. Unfortunately, I'm not reading the books in order so I think I'm missing the big picture with the character relationships. Going to go back to the beginning and start. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Simpson | 12/7/2013

    " another brilliant book by jd robb "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kinnu | 11/24/2013

    " mavis baby shower "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kandice | 11/21/2013

    " These books are quick, easy reads, and incrdibly entertaining. It's easy to forgive the coincidences because of that. This one was a little MORE coincidental, but the relationships and Dallas's style were still there, so... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 11/20/2013

    " 3.0 out of 5 stars -- You know what you get when you read one of these in the Eve Dallas series. This was #23 and I still really enjoy the characters and the glimpse of the future in this entertaining tale of this NYPD cop and her mega rich husband and friends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dani Meehan | 10/17/2013

    " Nora Roberts continues this wonderful series with another solid work. I love the characters in this series, I love the passion between Eve and Roarke and I love the detective story that never gets forgotten. Great fast read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 8/1/2013

    " Even without the friend in the story existing, for some reason, I just felt that I kind of had the story figured out. I did enjoy this for more of the Mavis pregnancy story line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy Kolle | 7/1/2013

    " Good. Cool how one muder links to another. Glad they didn't torture tandy I probably would have cried. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 6/11/2013

    " totally hated the villains which makes this wonderful! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 4/30/2013

    " Love all her books! Wonder when (if) they make a TV series of Dallas' life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melodie | 4/5/2013

    " Best one of these I've read in awhile. Mavis is one of my favorite characters in this series......WAY after Roarke, of course!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christine US | 2/28/2013

    " I guessed this within the first few chapters. I've never been able to do that before, so I'm disappointed. There's starting to be a predictability about these books, and I hope it breaks. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy Davie | 12/10/2012

    " Babies are front and center...as may be obvious from the title! Crime solving, chases, and, ick, emotional stuff for Eve AND Roarke! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 9/4/2012

    " I thought it was two seemingly two unrelated story lines but somehow J.D. Robb managed to mesh the two together. In the end there was joy and happiness for her friend, Marvis. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 7/4/2012

    " attack of the baby snatchers "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angelle Gallers | 8/31/2011

    " I am planning to go back and read this series now that I have been introduced to it. I have been checking Ebay for a deal on a bunch of them together. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kim | 5/21/2011

    " Total garbage. Maybe if she put more thought into her books instead of publishing one lime every two months, they might be worth reading. Her books require no intelligence whatsoever to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra | 5/10/2011

    " Must be one of the best in this series, and it ended with me laughing my butt off. Great story line, two of them, actually. Not a dull moment from page one to the very end. It was nearly impossible to put this one down at all. Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 4/3/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty | 1/31/2011

    " Again, a great book. The different scene with Roarke and Eve and Mavis' delivery were both touching and hilarious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carla | 1/8/2011

    " To read an "in Death"... is to love the characters. Its best to start from the begining and grow with them. You actually start to think of them as friends. Roberts is by far the best writer of this century. Keep them coming. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 12/24/2010

    " Love this series of books. Entertaining murder mystery's "
