Witness: "...fucking shark lawyers. Excuse my language."

Eve: "that's okay. Cops hear the word 'lawyer' all the time."

As much as I love this series this book was just ok for me. I prefer the audiobooks, but since this was such a short read I decided to just read the book. The energy of Robb's other books wasn't there right from the beginning, but I assumed it was because I'm so hooked on the audiobooks. So, I got the audiobook - it still fell flat. Although, it picked up half way through, it just never could overcome the absurd plot. With this series being set in the future, you often have to suspend belief for ...more

The murder mystery was good, but it was lacking the character development of all the other books in the series so far.

This was the last ID novella that I hadn't read so now I have to wait like everyone else for "new" ID. What am I going to do with myself?

I didn't enjoy this one as much. Next!
#23.5 in the In Death series. It's 2060 and Homicide Lt. Eve Dallas catches the murder of Radcliff C. Hopkins III. It's unusual because it takes place at No. 12, an iconic address in NYC related to the prior century and because the murder was caused by gunshot, an unusual means now that all firearms are in a collection or are banned. The murder eventually links to the disappearance of a singer, 85 years earlier, and believed killed by Hopkins grandfather. The are inexplicable touches of the supe ...more

This was just in time for Halloween. More than 80 years ago the owner of nightclub 12 went crazy and locked himself in the apartment upstairs for 10 years after his girlfriend, legendary singer Bobbi Bray disappeared. Since then, business after business has failed here as rumors of the curse grow.

Now Eve has been called to the scene to find the grandson of that owner dead in the former 12, the temperature is dropping, someone is singing, and there’s still another body to find.

I really enjoyed th
It was an okay short story, peeps. Unusual, because there were heavy paranormal elements here which is unusual for this series, but it was amusing when Eve kept trying to find a logical information for a situation which could not be explained. Of course, Peabody was the opposite and too eager to believe in scary ghosts.

Ну адекватная повесть, ребята. Больше ничего воодушевляющего сказать не могу. Необычная для этой серии, так как в ней присутствовали сильные паранормальные элементы, что в ра
Oddly enough, I wasn't that impressed with this story. The time setting was off for me, as this would have made a decent Halloween story, but was set in Mid-January. Eve's refusal to believe in the paranormal, or accept others' belief of same was irritating, especially when she is confronted full on by the ghost! The story itself felt rushed, and there wasn't the same mystery vibe to it. Eve knew who did it way too quickly, and with very little investigative work. While I plan to continue the se ...more

Haunted in Death: 22.5
This is set a few weeks after the previous book, so it is mid-January. This story has all the elements for a good ghost story. It kind of feels like the author had the structure for a Halloween story, but due to various reasons, had to pull it out and use it here. A solid mystery story, definitely creepy.

Ghosts haunt the murder scene has Eve Dallas solves a current murder and one from the past. The novellas in this series have a paranormal aspect that in my opinion does not fit the rest of the world that Dallas and company live in. I love the characters and the overall series but the novellas are my least favorite stories in the series.
This was an In-Death novella that takes place at a haunted, infamous New York. Two murders fifty years apart with the same weapon. I thought I knew who the killer was but I was wrong! A great short In-Death and now on to Born In Death.
Several of my least favorite Roberts tropes -- Irish people are magic, badly conceived ghosts, Eve being a dick to everyone is somehow supposed to be charming, and, oddest of all, treating Mick Jagger as the height of cool. Highly skippable.
*4- Stars*

This was a simple story, that was a little far-fetched too. Still it was enjoyable and the narration was wonderful.
It would be a good halloween story just a little to predictable for me.

#22.5 in the In Death series

This is a brief novella that was a little unusual for this series in that it was based around a ghost, namely the famous ghost haunting a former nightclub, and who allegedly killed the current owner. When Eve is called in, she has to wade through people's perceptions (including Peabody's), search beneath the surface, and even fight against her own (and Roarke's) reactions. Ever reasonable, Eve doggedly does her job, discovering the killer and uncovering the back story
Berls (Fantasy is More Fun)
Fun little novella. I really like the way even rational people are open to the supernatural in this future world Robb created. Even Eve to some extent, though she certainly tries to draw the line with Ghosts in this one. I wonder why she believes in sensitives and such but not Ghosts? Anyway, enjoyed this quick listen.

It was ok, but not as interesting as other books in the series. Definitely wouldn't recommend to anyone who was just starting in the series. All the usual characters were there, but they were just flat. Even listening to the audiobook I was bored.
This entry in J. D. Robb’s In Death series is actually a bridge novella to be read between “Memory In Death” and “Born In Death.” After many novels and just as many high-profile cases, we leave the year 2059 behind. It is early January 2060 and bitterly cold and nasty in NYC.

Eve Dallas and Delia Peabody are staring down at the corpse of Radcliff C. Hopkins III, who has been shot nine times with a 9mm, one of those times by direct contact to the forehead. For Eve, the first problem with this scen

This was my first audio-book and I chose a good one! Haunted in Death is a novella in J.D. Robb's In Death series. It originally appeared in the Bump in the Night anthology along with stories by Mary Blayney, Mary Kay McComas, and Ruth Langan. Since I somehow missed that anthology the story was new to me.

The plot is relatively simple. A murder is discovered in a building that is assumed to be haunted and/or cursed and Eve needs to figure out what happened. The victim is the grandson of the forme
Radcliff Hopkins planned to restore Number Twelve to the former glory and untarnished reputation it had when his grandfather owned the building a century ago. But that was not to be. Radcliffe's murdered just outside the building with an antique and illegal handgun adding frills to the already rampant urban legend that the address was haunted or cursed.

Though the team is excited, spouting theories that fit supernatural assistance, haunting, the curse and the facts at hand, pragmatic Eve is havin
