Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The third, and arguably best, book in Robb's futuristic In Death series here receives its first unabridged audio treatment (the abridged version was offered in 2001 by Brilliance), and the result is a brisk listen that captures all the suspense of this murder mystery. Ericksen gives tough cop Eve Dallas a hard, no-nonsense tone and nails her fiancé Roarke's Irish lilt beautifully. She also deftly portrays Eve's softer side, which comes out when she's forced to arrest her friend Mavis for the murder of a supermodel named Pandora. Eve knows Mavis couldn't have killed Pandora, even though she stood in the way of Mavis and her boyfriend, fashion designer Leonardo. But the evidence—Mavis is found at the scene of the crime, sporting scratch marks from Pandora—seems unequivocal. In the course of Eve's investigation, listeners meet a number of intriguing characters, including a designer with a map tattooed onto his skull, a grumpy horticulturist and a slinky, lifelike drone (i.e., android). Although Ericksen's portrayal of some of these personas can be exaggerated, on the whole, she does an excellent job conveying the primary characters and matching the pace of this taut yarn. Based on the Berkley paperback. (Nov.)

From Library Journal

In the third novel of her acclaimed "Death" series, Robb (the pseudonym for Nora Roberts) once again sets her 21st-century police detective heroine on the trail of a murderer. Set against the background of the youth-obsessed, drug-using fashion industry, this suspenseful tale sweeps from the glitzy to the seamy with all the flair and panache one has come to expect from Robb. Although the romance is not so prominent here, the sexual tension still simmers. The author of over 100 romances (primarily as Nora Roberts), Robb has written futuristic romantic suspense stories that include Naked in Death (Berkley, 1995). She lives in Keedysville, Maryland.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In "Immortal in Death," Dallas is preparing for her wedding when a local supermodel is murdered and Dallas's best friend, Mavis, becomes the prime suspect. Also suspect is Mavis's boyfriend, Leonardo, who just happens to be the designer of Dallas's wedding dress. While investigating the murder and digging up the dirt on the fashion world, Dallas discovers that the model (and most of the suspects) are either consuming or dealing a new and illegal youth serum.
This, obviously, is the key to the murder mystery, and Robb does a very good job at keeping us guessing. Although she wraps it up a bit to tidily, she does make it hard to figure out who the villain is.
Robb makes Mavis's character more complex and in-depth, and brings in Peabody, a new cop from her previous novel. Peabody becomes Dallas's aide (partner in training) in this novel and is a good foil for Dallas's hardness and intensity. Robb creates a really good chemistry between Dallas and Peabody that yields several witty and sarcastic exchanges.
One of the better parts of this book is the tangent on Sommerset, Roarke's butler. He and Dallas are perpetually sparring and, until this the third book in the series, have a true dislike of each other. Sommerset gives Dallas a hard dressing down for how she handles Mavis's case. And Roarke explains to Dallas how he and Sommerset came to work together, creating a tale that would in itself be an interesting novella. (And this little segment adds a lot of depth to Roarke's character.) This sets us up for some excitement between Roarke and Sommerset when Sommerset learns some of Eve's secrets. And it builds the foundation for some very entertaining exchanges in future novels of this series.
This is one of Robb's better books. Fast-paced, humorous, suspenseful, and entertaining.

"Immortal in Death" by J.D. Robb is the third instalment in the "In Death" series and it does not disappoint. We continue to learn more about Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD and her billionaire fiancé, Roarke. The book is set in the year 2058, and though there are many cool new gadgets and technologies, human nature remains the same. The futuristic setting adds a fresh new perspective, yet never detracts from the main storyline.
In this book, Eve's flamboyant best friend, Mavis Freestone, has been accused of murdering a top model. Eve is determined to find the true killer and prove Mavis' innocence, and so she goes into overdrive doing just that. Eve turns up a connection to a new illegal drug, which benefits the user with restored youthfulness, but is also highly addictive and fatal! Now it is up to Eve to connect the dots that lead to a killer, and save her best friend!
This book is thrilling, suspenseful, fun, and full of great passion between Eve and Roarke. Robb blends the romance with the suspense seamlessly and I am in awe of her ability to create vivid and true-to-life characters who become completely real to the reader. Eve is a wonderfully strong woman, with a past full of dark and troubling secrets. Roarke is the perfect match for her and getting to know these two has been a wonderfully rewarding experience. You will not regret buying a single book in this series, so buy them all today and enjoy!

At the end of the previous book, "Glory in Death", Roarke proposed to Lieutenant Eve Dallas after they were both involved in a life-threatening situation with a dangerous killer. Nora Roberts, writing as J.D. Robb, shocks us right from the start of this book, when we find that Eve accepted the marriage proposal! For those of you that have read the previous novels, this must come as much of a surprise as it was for me. Eve has always had trouble accepting the fact that she was in love, so it was almost unthinkable that she would be willing to share her life with the billionaire Roarke. However, this sets the tone for the things to come in this book, where we will find out several interesting facts from Eve and Roarke's past. These tidbits of information help us make sense of the attitudes we witnessed from several of the main characters in the past.
This time, the crimes Eve has to investigate are very close to home. Eve's best friend, Mavis, has convinced her to consult with designer Leonardo about her wedding dress. Mavis is in a relationship with the designer, and facing a very jealous ex-girlfriend, Pandora, who is literally fighting to get Leonardo back. One night, Mavis calls Eve in a frantic state from Leonardo's study and asks for help. She had found Pandora, the supermodel with which she had a big fight hours ago, lifeless on the study floor. Eve sets out to find out the culprit and clear her friend. In the meantime, one of Eve's informants turns up dead too, and the investigation leads to a new and deadly drug.
Robb has created a wonderful setting for her mysteries, New York in the year 2058, and has perfected the mix with some great characters, making this one hell of series.

Let me put it this way...when my order from arrived, I tore into the box to get to my J.D. Robb books! I could not wait to hear more of the story on Eve, Roarke and the other zany characters that Robb cooked up for us.
In Immortal in Death, Robb offers us an in depth look at the value of beauty...and how far some will go to attain their looks. When Lietenant Eve Dallas investigates into the murder of a top fashion model, she finds herself walking a very fine line between justice and crime as she prepares to defend one of her closest friends. Eve must go by the book in order to protect and defend Mavis, her zany musician turned best friend in Immortal in Death. Can their friendship stand the heat? Can Eve find the evidence she needs to free Mavis? Or will the ultimate set up become the ultimate betrayal as Eve heads into the high priced world of wealth, power and...immortality.
If you have not read any of the J.D. Robb series, I seriously recommend starting with the first one, Naked in Death. However, Robb gives the reader enough background information in each book, that picking up any one in the series would still grab your attention, keep you on the edge of your seat and racing to the finish line.
