In the year 2060, sophisticated investigative tools can help catch a killer. But there are some questions even the most advanced technologies cannot answer...
Harlan Coben says, "J.D. Robb's In Death novels are can't-miss pleasures." Her latest is no exception, as the priest at a Catholic funeral mass brings the chalice to his lips - and falls over dead...
When Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas confirms that the consecrated wine contained potassium cyanide, she's determined to solve the murder of Father Miguel Flores, despite her discomfort with her surroundings. It's not the bodegas and pawn shops of East Harlem that bother her, though the neighborhood is a long way from the stone mansion she shares with her billionaire husband Roarke. It's all that holiness flying around at St. Christobal's that makes her uneasy.
A search of the victim's sparsely furnished room reveals little - except for a carefully hidden religious medal with a mysterious inscription, and a couple of underlined Bible passages. The autopsy reveals more: faint scars of knife wounds, a removed tattoo - and evidence of plastic surgery suggesting "Father Flores" may not be the man his parishioners thought. Now, as Eve pieces together clues that suggest identity theft, gang connections, and a deeply personal act of revenge, she hopes to track down whoever committed this unholy act. Until a second murder - in front of an even larger crowd of worshippers - knocks the whole investigation sideways.
I did not agree with the review that said the narrator was bad. I enjoyed listing to Salvation in Death and really thought it was one of her best. I highly recommend it! Froze my fingers listing to it in the car didn’t want to stop listening and go into work!
Susan Erikson is Eve Dallas and Peabody and Roark and McNab and every other character in J. D. Robb's ...In Death series. Every character comes to life and has a personality of their own. I do not believe that I have ever listened to another narrator who puts so much life into a book series. Please never change the narrator and Ms. Erikson, please keep doing what you are doing. I love your work. I look forward to each book mainly because of your ability to make the characters real to me. Thank you for your efforts. This book just another in a long line of successes!
Love JD ROBB, LOVE Susan Erickson
Susan Erickson is the best narator I have ever heard. Period. I love JD Robb/Nora Roberts, but once I finish her series I think I will look for other books ready by Susan Erickson. She brings life to the story!
