Book Description

Sept. 29 2006 In Death Series
Number Twelve is an urban legend in 2060 New York City. The hot club in the 1960s, it is now reported to be haunted…and cursed. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called there to investigate the apparent murder of Radcliff Hopkins, its new owner and the grandson of the man who made Number Twelve a cultural icon. Several bullets from a banned gun end his dream of returning the building to its former glory. With everyone around her talking about the supernatural, pragmatic Eve won’t let rumors of ghosts distract her from hard evidence. The case becomes even more bizarre when it appears to be linked to the suspicious disappearance of a rock star eighty-five years ago. As Eve searches for the connection, logic clashes with the unexplainable. She may be forced to face the threat of something more dangerous than a flesh-and-blood killer.

About the Author

From AudioFile

The most recent in the Lieutenant Eve Dallas futuristic mysteries involves a new homicide that is connected to the murder of a young, talented singer that occurred in the 1960s. Dallas has to connect the dots and in the process deal with hauntings, curses, and ghosts. Susan Ericksen does a good job with the characters' voices, delivering an especially strong Irish brogue for Eve's husband, Roarke. However, even the best performance can't overcome the slimness of the plot and the overemphasis on ballistics. This is definitely the weakest title in the series and may appeal only to the most diehard fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Death Series March 23 2011
By Kelly Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have read everyone of the books in the "In Death" series. They are great! I have to admit, I hade my doubts about them, before I started reading, due to the fact that they is set in the future, but that aspect isnt really a factor in the books or the stories. I was given a book in the middle of the series, and as soon as I finished it, I immediately went looking for the rest of them. The stories and characters draw you in and keep you coming back for more. They make you laugh out loud, shed a tear and feel just about everything in between. Definately love Roarke! and see Eve grow and change.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice premise, but came off as mediocre Aug. 1 2013

*Beware of possible Spoilers*

haunted-in-death-j-d-robbIt's the start of a new year in 2060 and Eve is thrown into a case that brings up an old urban legend.

Number Twelve was a club where up and coming singer, Bobbie Bray, performed. She and her boyfriend, Hop, lived above the club in an apartment he had made. But when she was getting ready to leave him she mysteriously disappeared never to be seen again. Her body was never found and ever since the building seems to be cursed. Any time anybody purchases or has anything to do with it they meet an untimely death or the business goes belly up. No serious or smart investor will touch it, not even Roarke. The place is rumored to be haunted by Bobbie herself.

Now Hop's grandson has bought Number Twelve with plans of renovating it. Only he is shot and killed before he has a chance to get the project off the ground. But what they find while investigating the murder shocks people everywhere. Bobbie Bray's remains. It turns out that Hop had killed her as many suspected and built a wall to conceal her body and the killer wanted to make sure her bones were found at long last. And, stranger yet Hop's grandson was killed with the same gun that killed Bobbie all those years ago.

While investigating at Number Twelve, Eve keeps hearing singing and even seeing a young woman that looks like Bray. Is it her ghost or just a really good show put on by her avenger?

This is a short story and let me tell you there is a lot going on in those 80 pages. I never would have thought it was possible to put so much in. You get Bobbie and Hop's back-story, their family, their relationship and everything that's happened since. Then, you get a little sex scene with Eve and Roarke and Eve teasing Peabody for her fear of Number Twelve. Then, finally you get the case all wrapped up with a nice little bow.

I liked the premise of this book and thought it was interesting when Eve got to see Bobbie's ghost reenact everything that happened which gave us all a better understanding of exactly what went down that terrible night she died.

But something was missing for me in this one that I just can't put my finger on and the entire book came off as mediocre to me. But it was a quick fun read nonetheless.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too short March 31 2014
By Penny Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story was too short. I missed the real detail and the interaction with the character's workmates that is usually in her longer books. I am addicted to J.D. Robb's books but was disappointed in this one.
3.0 out of 5 stars Could have done without Feb. 21 2014
By Erin - Published on Amazon.com
This novella was fine for what it was. I am listening to the series on audible though, and regretted paying for this one. I could have done without.
4.0 out of 5 stars Happened way too fast for me. Jan. 21 2014
By Mariana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was a fast novella and strange too. Eve had to discover the killer of those people, one was buried in the building 85 years ago, so the second murder was a connection for sure. Roarke believes in the rumors about a ghost and the building was haunted, so they had a little problem in agreeing sometimes, but that’s a side of their relationship that I love. They are not perfect and both realise the moments to trust in your partner. The murders for me was too simple, but I loved Eve and Roarke making up.
