'Whether this is the listener's first or fiftieth In Death story, they're guaranteed an enjoyable listening experience.'-AudioFile on Abandoned in Death

Homicide detective Eve Dallas must untangle a twisted family history while a hostage’s life hangs in the balance—in the new In Death novel by New York Times bestselling author J. D. Robb.

The woman’s body was found in the early morning, on a bench in a New York City playground. She was clean, her hair neatly arranged, her makeup carefully applied. But other things were very wrong—like the tattoo and piercings, clearly new. The clothes, decades out of date. The fatal wound hidden beneath a ribbon around her neck. And the note: Bad Mommy, written in crayon as if by a child.

Eve Dallas turns to the department’s top profiler, who confirms what seems obvious to Eve: They’re dealing with a killer whose childhood involved some sort of trauma—a situation Eve is all too familiar with herself. Yet the clues suggest a perpetrator who’d be roughly sixty years old, and there are no records of old crimes with a similar MO. What was the trigger that apparently reopened such an old wound and sent someone over the edge?

When Eve discovers that other young women—who physically resemble the first victim—have vanished, the clock starts ticking louder. But to solve this case she will need to find her way into a hidden place of dim light and concrete, into the distant past, and into the cold depths of a shattered mind.

    J D Robb continues to deliver. Great descriptions I could visualize every scene. I was able to figure out the villain. Yet her reveal and the steps taken were worth the listen. I wasn't thrilled with the narration though, I had difficulty discerning who said what in conversations held between more than 2 characters.

    All the in death series books are amazing. This book had a lot more going on than most and was untangled brilliantly. great read.

    Pretty sorry book. Nasty language. Could not get past chapter two

  • Marianne D.

    I have read or listened to every one of the In Death books and loved everyone. Always disappointed when it is over. I waited anxiously for the release of this one but unfortunately it felt like someone else wrote it. Less time spent with the characters I love. The story dragged and I was glad when it was over. Very disappointed in Forgotten in Death.

    Read some negative reviews regarding this story but I truly enjoyed the storyline

  • Lois B.

    I've listened to all 55 of the books in this series and while this one wasn't the best it was entertaining. I wish there would have been more storyline with the main characters like Roake Peabody Mcnabb ect. but maybe next book will have that. Like always Susan Ericksen is one of the best narrators ever!

  • Penny Dunn

    Very disappointed. I've read every single book and while formulaic, Robb managed to make every one interesting. This time she just phoned it in. Boring, flat and no suspence. Where are the unexplored room of Roarke's house? Where are the girl groups that cause Eve so much angst? Why is Roarke just a sidekick instead of a vibrant character in his own right? Maybe it's time that Dallas move to LA.
