In the year 2060, cutting-edge investigative tools can help catch a killer. But there are some questions even the most advanced technologies cannot answer. . . . At the most solemn moment of a Catholic funeral Mass, the priest brings the chalice to his lips. Seconds later, he is dead on the altar. For the mourners packed into the pews, Father Miguel Flores's sudden demise is an unimaginable shock. When Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas confirms that the consecrated wine contained enough potassium cyanide to kill a rhino, she's prepared to plunge in and find out why, despite her discomfort with her surroundings. It's not the bodegas and pawnshops of East Harlem that bother her; it's all that holiness flying around St. Cristobal's that makes her uneasy. The autopsy reveals scars from knife wounds, a removed tattoo, and evidence of plastic surgery, suggesting "Father Flores" may not have been the man his parishioners thought. Now, as Eve pieces together clues that suggest identity theft, gang connections, and a deeply personal act of revenge, she hopes to track down whoever committed this unholy act. Until a second murder - in front of an even larger crowd of worshippers - knocks the whole investigation sideways. The way Eve sees it, vengeance may be the Lord's business, but if there's going to be any earthly justice in this case, it's up to her. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " "Salvation", a bit like "Strangers" before it, moves JD Robb's In Death series into a more traditional detective story mold. Of course it wouldn't be an Eve Dallas story if things didn't get gritty and occasionally disturbing with a heaping dollop of creative profanity. But what we have here is an emphasis on the mystery itself and peeling back the layers until truth is found and justice achieved. Of course I really read these stories for the characters, and Eve, Rourke, Peabody and crew are in top form here. An extremely satisfying read! "

    " I have been reading this series from the beginning. I enjoyed this one the least. I may be burning out on the series. Or I may just be irritated with another secular author knocking Christianity without knowing what they are talking about. Page 189: "Salvation must be earned." The whole point of Christianity is that salvation can NOT be earned. It is a free gift but it was not cheap. Reading about Christians with a derogatory tone from a clueless author really REALLY irks me. "

    " Good mystery in this one. I sometimes feel these books are a little predictable, but this one was good. A couple of secondary storylines that all connect into the main murder investigation. Good Roarke and Eve stuff. My one gripe is that Eve's childhood trauma is starting to be used as a story crutch. Seems like every case is connected to that in some way. Is Roberts stuck in a rut? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil Mullen | 1/5/2014

    " Nice intricate plot. Better than her usual in that way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 mlady_rebecca | 1/4/2014

    " Not much new to say about this one. The case involves the murder of a Catholic priest during a funeral rite. Hence the novelty is seeing how Eve and Roarke deal with religion. Let's just say awkwardly. *g* There are also people involved with the case that remind Eve of her childhood and remind Roarke of his. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vfields needs to be happy! | 1/4/2014

    " Eve Dallas is so cool and she never fails to please! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley Smith | 12/13/2013

    " Liked the style will probably read more in the series :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah Kleinman | 11/29/2013

    " This book really had an interesting mystery with twists - unlike some of the authors' previous books in the series. I enjoyed this quite a bit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jbgreendawn | 11/27/2013

    " She actually managed to surprise me with the "who done it" of this one. which is always more fun then when you figure it out in chapter 3... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 theknitsmith | 11/19/2013

    " These books are always a sure thing and I get my money's worth. I like the characters and the brain candy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Artha | 10/23/2013

    " I always enjoy her books and she doesn't disappoint!! Good Read!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeannette Brown | 7/30/2013

    " Good, but took me a while to get thru it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 7/3/2013

    " This one seemed to have a particularly long and involved storyline, especially with the throwing in of the parallel investigation and also the crimes in the past. It introduced some interesting characters as well (including hot priests?). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 4/1/2013

    " This is the first JD Robb I have ever read and I enjoyed it. I didn't realize that it took place in the future but it isn't crazy futuristic. It was a great mystery and I didn't have it figured out! Will read more of her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Suglia | 10/12/2012

    " Perhaps I'll make it through this whole series. She offers a slightly different background for her murder mysteries and that combined with the question often looming what is right from wrong, makes for good quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise Murphy macdonald | 8/12/2012

    " Love Roarke. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristina | 5/23/2012

    " It wasn't the best and i found my self struggling through it. "

    " Priest dies at funeral "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beflow06 | 3/12/2012

    " Electric... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Su Irwin | 2/14/2012

    " Dallas does religion..... and not surprisingly with an air if caution. Yet again though, she is in a steep learning curve which leaves her enriched as a person, if more despairing of the inhumanity people can wreak on even their closest allies. As ever, a triumph for Ms Roberts, more power to her. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia Moosbauer | 12/23/2011

    " the book was very good "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Violet Somers | 6/27/2011

    " Another awesome book in the In Death series...just ordered another one :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karin | 5/21/2011

    " priest is poisoned during funeral - turns out he's not who he said he was. eve tracks down gang connections and solves (series of) murders. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana | 5/8/2011

    " Another really good book in this enjoyable series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 5/5/2011

    " Ah, another great Lieutenant Eve Dallas and Roarke book! You can see the action as if watching a movie while you read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 5/1/2011

    " This was a great JD Robb book. JD Robb's mysteries are always a book I read in 1 or 2 days because I do not want to put the book down. She is fun writer and it is a light read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirl | 4/28/2011

    " I like how Eve's softer, more emotional side is coming out in the later books in the In Death Series. Could've used more of it based in Ireland, but that's a personal preference, not a flaw.
    All in all a good read, hard to put the book down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 4/18/2011

    " I really enjoy this series. This book was as well written, engaging, and as fun to read as the rest. Keep them coming!! (er, as in, more books please) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 4/16/2011

    " Eve and Roarke in fine form. One of the best of this long-running series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Skoo | 4/15/2011

    " This wasn't my favorite Death book. I really liked the beginning, but it lagged big time in the middle, and raced to the finish, and had an abrupt ending. It seemed to take me a long time to read this one.
