Monthly Mini Review
Secrets in Death by JD Robb, narrated by Susan Ericksen – B I always enjoy In Death books to one degree or another so I’d pre-ordered the audiobook and started it the day it downloaded. Secrets in Death is less gruesome than some of the other installments. Sure, Larinda Mars bleeds to death but there is no sexual violence done to her and the villain isn’t quite as twisted as some of them have been.
Susan Ericksen’s narration is always stellar in this series. Her characterisations inform my reading even in print and I hear her voice in my head, especially the Irish lilt she gives Roarke.
The villain in this book seemed a little obvious to me and there was one part in the leap Eve made to nailing him which confused me. It wasn’t clearly stated in the book how she could prove what she surmised and the basis for the search and arrest warrants seemed a little thin to me as a result. I won’t say more because spoilers but that seemed like a bit of a loose thread which niggled a little.
It’s always a pleasure to catch up with Eve, Roarke and her crew of found family. Secrets in Death was a solid entry into the series and, as always, well worth the price of my credit.
Reviews of these books will be up soon at AudioGals.
