No affairs. No criminal connections. No DNA. No clues. Eve Dallas may be the best cop in the city - not to mention having the lavish resources of her husband Roarke at her disposal - but the Swisher case has her baffled. The family members were murdered in their beds with brutal, military precision. The state-of-the-art security was breached, and the killers used night vision to find their way through the cozy middle-class house. Clearly, Dallas is dealing with pros. The only mistake they made was to overlook the nine-year-old girl cowering in the dark in the kitchen. . . Now Nixie Swisher is an orphan - and the sole eyewitness to a seemingly inexplicable crime. Kids are not Dallas's strong suit. But Nixie needs a safe place to stay, and Dallas needs to solve this case. Not only because of the promise she made to Nixie. Not only for the cause of justice. But also to put to rest some of her own darkest memories - and deepest fears. With her partner Peabody on the job, and watching her back - and with Roarke providing the kind of help only he can give - Lieutenant Eve Dallas is running after shadows, and dead-set on finding out who's behind them.

    " This time Eve and Roarke are challenged by a truly deadly and confusing foe...Nixie Swisher, a 9-year-old! Well, she isn't a foe. She is the lone survivor of what appears to be urban terrorism. Her whole family plus a sleepover guest are slaughtered in their beds. Nixie survives simply because she wasn't where she was supposed to be-in her bed. She had gone to the kitchen for a late-night snack, and saved her own life. To keep her safe while pursuing the bad guys, Eve takes her home. Eve, Roarke, and company manage to care for Nixie while also tracking down her parents' murderers. Another great "in Death." "

    " Ok, I've read several in this very, very long series now. The net result is that I am developing a deep respect for the talents of Nora Roberts. Each story is told with an affection for her characters and craft. The stories don't leave me feeling that it is the same story just changed up a bit. And the sheer amount of writing is simply amazing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ulonda | 2/11/2014

    " This was a great book. Eve has to deal with her feelings and memories as she solves the murder of a young girl's family. Nora Roberts does a great job a letting Eve and Roarke grow and develop as time and circumstances lead. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeannette Brown | 1/25/2014

    " good, not great. I love the series, but this book took a while to get going and had kind of a let down ending...i still love the series though "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 1/25/2014

    " I enjoyed this Eve Dallas story. Eve had to confront her own demons in order to help the survivor. Also she and Roarke had to come to terms with their differences and accept them. They had to realize that love is imperfect, but when it works it is unbeatable. A fast paced story line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara | 1/25/2014

    " This was one for my favorites so far. I like to see Eve squirm when she has to deal with kids! Speaking of kids, how many more books is it until Mavis has her baby? It seems like she has been preggo forever! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caron | 1/18/2014

    " I've become addicted to the "...In Death" series by J.D.Robb. My quest is to find and read them all. They are riveting. LT Dallas and Rourke are outstanding characters--all of them are. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bcoghill Coghill | 12/7/2013

    " These "In Death" novels are ever so addictive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth (MrsGinTN) | 11/22/2013

    " I did not like the voices on the audio book at all. The Peabody voice in particular was disturbing. The storyline however was interesting, and it was fun to see Eve and Roarke made uncomfortable by Nixie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 11/22/2013

    " I had to keep stopping and starting when listening to this so I feel like I missed a lot of the information. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl Hendricks | 11/14/2013

    " This finishes all the JD Robb books for me. Now I have read them all and must wait for her to write another. I absolutely LOVE this series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timaka | 10/24/2013

    " Another win for the innocent and another loss for the bad guys! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 8/25/2013

    " Great ending, great twist, i didn't see it coming.. well maybe i wasn't looking! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy Davie | 6/30/2013

    " Good...and Eve has to cope with more kids! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 12/21/2012

    " I took a long break from listening to this series, and in so glad I came back to this book. One of the best so far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eny | 9/3/2012

    " I love this books, I still have not read one that I have not been satisfied with. Hard to put down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 7/7/2012

    " Survivor in Death is a great book with a lot of action and emotion!Personally I think it is one of the list's best, so far.It's really difficult to put it down once you've started and it's fun watching Eve and Roarke dealing with the kid and their thoughts of their own family in the future!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maddy Barone | 4/18/2012

    " Loved Nixie. Loved Eve's reaction to Nixie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise M. | 1/8/2012

    " AKA: Nora Roberts, J.D. Robb, Jill March, Sarah Hardesty(in error in UK for Born in Snow, Born in Ice, Born in Fire) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simran | 10/22/2011

    " Loved it ! Now, this book has everything i love to see in a JD Robb novel, and in just the right amount. Cant wait to catch Eve again on her next case ! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 NTE | 8/28/2011

    " Just finished a re-read of all the In Deaths (to date), and this is my favorite. It's the hardest to read, I think, but that's because it's true and horrible and just raw. The scenes with Peabody & Eve, every move that Nixie makes, the sides of Summerset that you get to see: favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Destiny | 6/14/2011

    " This was my favorite book in this Series, so far..I couldn't put it down!!! I give it 5 stars!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 5/17/2011

    " Read on Grandma Shirley's recommendation. Not bad; entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 5/14/2011

    " One little girl survives the home-invasion slaughter of her family. Eve is forced to deal with her nine year old witness, no matter how much children panic her. Somehow Robb uses Eve's repulsion to add to the appeal brought by little Nixie. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eileen | 4/3/2011

    " Not my kind of book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 3/31/2011

    " Also violent but well mixed with tenderness and justice "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 3/21/2011

    " One of my favorites of the series. So full of emotion. I cried several times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra | 1/24/2011

    " Loved it, as usual. I was not at all surprised by Eve's response to the child, and nor was I disappointed by it. Considering her past history, I think she did the best she could, and maybe even gained a little more insight into how to treat a child right, and some about herself as well. "

  • 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty | 12/14/2010

    " I love this series more and more with every book I read. Once again this is a very good book that I had a hard time putting down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 11/8/2010

    " Just like all the JD Robb "...in death" books, this one is a nice, good guys win, entertaining read. I love the fact that you can pick up any of these books at any time without reading them in order and still know exactly what is going on. Makes them perfect Library books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee | 11/6/2010

    " Two-haiku review:

    Family slaughtered.
    Little girl hides, escapes death,
    Attaches to Eve.

    Happy family--
    Eve and Roarke never had one.
    Hurts them as child grieves. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keira | 10/15/2010

    " FINALLY READ!!!! I spent a full two months going insane because I'd written it down that I had read this book and I knew I hadn't... Typo.
    Now that I have, I feel much better lol. I cried at the beginning when nixie's family was killed and later again at the end. "
