The fabulous Marlene Dietrich in Agatha Christie’s wonderful “Witness for the Prosecution,” the play Roarke and Eve go to see.
description

★★★★★ & a Wow! & a Whoa! (This is a review of the audiobook.) Susan Ericksen narrates these characters as if she wrote them instead of J.D. Robb, she knows them that well. Her narration lets us know them better, too!

Loved this one. Adore all of them, actually, but this one was extra-extraordinary. I think it is one of the best in the series. The homage to Agatha Christie was spot-on; especially Roarke’s thinking how much Dame Christie would love Lieutenant Eve Dallas. We get to see deeper into these characters. The dialogues between Peabody and Dallas are revealing, taking them to a deeper level of intimacy. The scenes with Roarke are H.O.T., funny, and tender.

In Death series in correct reading order.

Shelly I'm thinking I may have to start this series very very soon, I already have the first on audio. I'm sorta on a NR kick, you're review just added fuel to the fire! Excellent job as usual, love the picture!


Lisa Kay Thanks, Shelly! Did you make any more head-way into this series?


message 13: by Shelly (new) - added it

Shelly I haven't yet, I need to get the next few in the series on audio first. I've been buying the ones on audible when they go sale, #2 hasn't yet, and I'm out of credits right now! Thought about reading them, but the narration is good, and I like to continue series the way I start them. I will definitely continue to see if I like them any better - but now that I have an idea of what to expect, I imagine I will have no problem getting through them!
