Immediately after hearing these words, uttered to her by an old Romanian woman bleeding to death in the street, detective Eve Dallas begins to notice that her latest case has come with a number of interesting side-effects: visions of the deceased, ...more

Of course murder is Eve's business and pretty soon she comes across the first dead (or is she?) body. Robb often entertains herself in her novellas by indulging in the supernatural and in ...more
This was a great read for Friday the 13th! I love this series!
You’re Eve Dallas. You’re the love of my life. My heart and soul. You’re a cop, mind and bone. You’re a woman of strength and resilience. Stubborn, hardheaded, occasionally mean as a badger, and more generous than you’ll admit.
For Eve Dallas, a BBQ with friends and family is another way to chill between two investigations. But when you're an homicide investigator, unfortunately, it's not too long before you get another call. This time, Eve come upon her next case on the street, when an injured old woman speak gibberish before collapsing and bleeding to death. But after her encounter with the Gypsy, Eve begin to experience unusual weird things.

A seemingly random encounter with a dying woman leaves Eve very unsettled when she begins to notice some new and quirky personality traits such as having visions and speaking Russian. Regardless, she is determined to keep her promise to the old lady and sets out to discover the whereabouts of her missing granddaughter. What she finds is enough to put terror into any young woman's heart.
Although good paranormal mysteries are often entertaining and the previous In ...more
I so appreciated the satisfying ending to the arrests in Indulgence in Death , 31. At least those jerks will get to spend a long time without their indulgent lifestyles. It's not enough though for Eve, and I doubt it would ever be enough for anyone who loses a loved one.
The In Death series is a terrifying blend of the ...more
This is a quick novella that only took a few hours to listen to. Of course, the narration of Susan Ericksen added greatly to the enjoyment. Interesting that the novellas seem to contain a lot more "woo-woo" (as Eve describes it) than the regular books in the series. We begin with the anticipated barbeque that Eve has instigated to help her friend Morris through his grief. When she drives Father Lopez home, they come across a dying woman who seems to become a part of ...more
Eve has just wrapped up her latest case and is having the barbeque she arranged with her closest friends, before she stumbles upon a very strange scene that leads to a case with paranormal elements.
Interesting story that strethes Eve's limits, gives her a few answers about things she's been wondering about and brings her even closer to her amazing husband.
Their adventures continue ...more
I really liked this one for a few reasons. The gypsies, ballerinas, possession, paranormal activity... It was a lot of fun. Throwing logic-driven Eve into any sort of supernatural business guarantees amusing results.
Wish it were a bit longer, maybe with a little more of that dead speaker business. Maybe the fact that I want more of the paranormal stuff is an indication that I should back away from this series and gorge on ...more
I read this as part of an anthology. I needed my Roarke fix along with Eve. Definitely ...more
This story picks up immediately after the end of Indulgence in Death, we even get to see Eve hosting the barbecue she was arranging to cheer up Morris, but the ...more
I really enjoyed this little novella.
SPOILER ALERT. IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY READ THIS NOVELLA, STOP READING NOW, AS THE FOLLOWING WON'T MAKE SENSE AND MIGHT RUIN YOUR EXPERIENCE WHEN YOU READ IT.
OK, NOW THAT WE KNOW THAT YOU'VE READ THE BOOK...
The only thing I would have wanted to change was at the end where Beata and Eve talk. I wish Beata would have had the chance to have ONE LAST CHAT with her great-grandmother before she "left".
That's the only thing I would really change.
