Dante had been courting his victim in cyberspace for weeks before meeting her in person. A few sips of wine and a few hours later, she was dead. The murder weapon: a rare, usually undetectable date-rape drug with a street value of a quarter million dollars. Detective Eve Dallas is playing and replaying the clues in her mind. The candlelight, the music, the rose petals stre ...more

The author was in top form when she wrote this one. Eve and Roarke have been married nearly one year and their relationship is pretty near perfect. They joke around, fight a bit but usually playfully and they have each others backs. Peabody and McNab are on and off all through the book but again there is a lot of humour in the situations that occur between them. And of course Eve's opinions on the matter are hilarious.
We see a gentle side of Summerset, quite a lot of the apparently over weight G

4 I Love A Good Mystery Stars

I love these books! They are interesting and fast paced and although Eve does what cops all over the world do in reality, which is investigate, not going around beating up guys until someone talks, the books manage not to become tedious.

And although I love the mystery suspect of the books, I enjoy watching Eve work, I find her fear of primping hilarious and I always have a good laugh with Peabody's and McNab's antics, there is one aspect of the book that is beginning

“Predators did not need mercy.”― Conn Iggulden

Throughout the story we as a reader know how difficult it is for Eve to deal with this case (view spoiler).

There are innocent women who go out on a date but do not survive the night. We as readers know the identity of the killers from the very start and it's all about Eve Dallas finding them and stopping them in their sick game!

The chapters that were from the killer's perspective were SICK!!

Lucky number 13 in the series and it was a good one. Eve is trying to catch two guys who are using a date rape drug to rape and kill their victim. It's a game to them where they get points.

We know who the murderers are for the whole book, but it was still a fun ride to watch the process. Even better than that is the characters and relationships between all of them. There is something to be said for long series because you really get involved in their world and feel like the characters are old fr

Book 13 and it is still fresh. I still crave more of Roarke and Eve. I love them. I think I love her more than I love him. She is so strong, independent, honest.


"Dachas," she said, "is, I'm told, Gaelic for hope."


Lets get the negatives out of the way. Nope, it is not! It has been more than 30 years since I studied Irish in the classroom but some words stay with you. Didn't even have to google this one. The Irish/Gaelic word for "hope" is "Dóchas"! Nora, if you want to hire me as your Irish exp

Another wonderful re-read...Loved Roarke's reaction to Eve being sick and her learning to deal with it. (Thanks to Summerset!) Lots of character growth...Roarke is getting more involved in the case. Eve is still extremely annoyed, but letting him. Progress on the Peabody/McNab front, as well. "We're a couple." "A couple of what?" Vintage Eve. Loved Eve's rant in Whitney's office...and his reaction. On to the next!

Seduction in Death is the 13th book in the gritty, futuristic detective series featuring Eve Dallas and her husband, sexy billionaire Roarke. Eve and her team are after a serial killer who is meeting women through chat groups. He's targeting single women with poetry, flowers and romance before meeting them in person and slipping a lethal date rape drug into their cocktail. To add to the intrigue, it looks like there are two different killers working as a team, making it a game where each accumul ...more

1st read: 30th March-15th April
Best one-liners:
Eve: "Okay, now that I've let you fuck me and feed me, thereby satisfying all immediate appetites, I've got work."
...
Roarke: "Aren't you lucky to have me? A rhetorical question, darling," he said and stuffed caviar into her mouth.

I still can't get over how amazing this narrator is!

The pursuit of love has never been so deadly. A killer seduced by the idea of love targets victims of an online poetry chatroom where after making an arrangement to meet, he wines and dines them, slipping potent and rare date-rape drugs into their drinks until all they feel is euphoria and desire. These unsuspecting romantics continue to be targeted by this anonymous killer. Coming in to stop this string of murders from occurring, Eve Dallas uses everything in her arsen

This being the thirteenth book of an amazing series, I'm having trouble thinking up new ways to praise every next one, no matter how very different they are all from one another. (I can't imagine writing a review when I reach book 30-something)

This one is sort of a lucky read for me, because I was gone for two weeks and out of the several books from the series I saw in one bookstore, this was one. Being the one I've reached I couldn't believe my luck and bought the paperback.

What a despicable pair of spoiled brats, with one being so much worse than the other. And sadly, even though this is set in the future, it's not beyond the realm of actually happening.

Louise and Charles meet in this book - gotta love that couple. Ian and Charles get into a good knock around fight with "Dishy Dimato" cooling them off!

McNab and Peabody get back together and this time exclusively!

Two thumbs up - now onto Reunion in Death!

5 stars. This series is so awesome. Eve really had he work cut our for her on this one. It was a bit dark, but the banter with everyone makes it fun and lightens the subject matter up a bit. This is quickly turning into a favorite series. I can't wait to read more.

Two young men with everything going for them look like good ideas for dates. But what if they are psychopathic serial killers? Hope EHarmony screens for these things. They might want to include on their questionnaires, "do you like long walks and drugging your date before you rape her and throw her off a balcony?"
Great book by one of the best writers in the world!

Homicide Lieutenant Eve Dallas is on the hunt for a serial killer who targets women in dating chatrooms, seduces them with roses and romance, and kills with a rare and deadly drug.

Once again the culprit is revealed at the start and the plot focuses on Eve following the clues with the help of her team. While the mystery is straightforward, the motivations are deeply disturbing and call to mind such cases as Leopold and Loeb as well as the Clutter family murders. There ar

This is the first book in this series that Susan Ericksen did not make Peabody sound pinched-nosed. That was a bit of a surprise given that I already gotten used to hearing Peabody as pinched-nosed character. When I first encountered it, I didn't really like it that Peabody sounded pinched-nosed. But now that I'd gotten used to it after, what, ten books? I didn't like it that Peabody has changed voiced. I guess change doesn't sit well with me...

I like this series. But sometimes Eve gets on my last nerve. She can be such a hypocrite... it drives me crazy! It's okay when she bends the rules, but if anyone else does they need to be slapped down. Her "lapses" are always excused that she had no choice. Blah Blah Blah. She would have crucified them if someone else did it.

She hates when other cops misuse their badges, but she is a bully whenever it suits her. It's all justified of course because she has a truly terrible past and it's all

As always, a very pleasant visit with Eve and Roarke. While the murder mystery is solid, my feeling in this book was that it was secondary to the further development of Eve and Roarke's relationship. There have been some lovely touches in previous books of Eve's attempts to do the 'relationship thing' and that goes up a level in this book. As her first wedding anniversary approaches, Eve is finally beginning to find some security in her relationship with Roarke, even if she still feels she doesn ...more

My thoughts: This is the thirteenth in the series and I guess I should be used to Eve's stubborn refusal to make it easy on herself. She just seemed to irk me to no end even refusing to admit when she was sick and had to take some flu medication. Roake had to sit on top of her so that the medicine could be thrown down her throat. She has been married to Roake for nearly a year now, shouldn't she accept a little love, tenderness, friendship and support by now. That man is a saint with everyt

This installment of the In Death Series was intense. Not because of the murders. I mean, those were bad, and I felt sorry for the women who lost their lives in the story, but we are expecting that with this series, right?

No, the intense part was Eve. She's slowly becoming more vulnerable as the series goes on and it's really opening up her old wounds. It makes me ache for her. I can't imagine how awful it is for her to have the coming up for again when she's starting to get her life

This is #13 in the Eve Dallas/Roarke series, this time about two sociopathic serial killer friends. By 13 I thought they should be moving things along a bit, it's getting pretty repetitive. I understand that in series they need to repeat things a little bit to keep people up to date who are just joining in, but the characters need to move along a bit too. Everyone here needs one giant therapy session because they're all getting more moody, needy and neurotic. Maybe it just seems that way because ...more

“There was never anybody before you," she said. "I just wanted to say that. And when I did what I do, and it opened a crack in me like it did last night, there was nobody there to hold on to me. I didn't want anyone to hold on to me. Until you. And I got through and I got by, and it was okay. But I think, maybe, if I'd just kept getting through and getting by, I'd have come to a point where I couldn't do it anymore. And if I couldn't do it anymore, it'd be the end of me, Roarke. So when you hold on to me, You're helping me stand up, one more time. And the dead, you're standing for them, too. I just wanted to say that."
