Summary:

Technology has advanced in 2060 New York City, but childbirth has been the same since the beginning of time. And despite the brutal double homicide on Lieutenant Eve Dallas's caseload, she has to be there for her pregnant friend Mavis, even if it means throwing the dreaded baby shower. . . But Mavis needs an even bigger favor now. Tandy Willowby, one of the moms-to-be in her class, has gone missing, just days before her due date - not even showing up at the shower at Eve and Roarke's place that she'd been looking forward to so much. A recent emigrant from London, Tandy has few friends in New York, and no family. When Eve enters Tandy's apartment and finds Mavis's shower gift wrapped and ready on the table - and Tandy's packed hospital bag still on the floor - her spine starts tingling. Normally, this would be turned over to Missing Persons. Eve has more than enough on her plate trying to find out who murdered Natalie Copperfield and her fiancé, both employed at a highly prestigious accounting firm. But Mavis wants no one but Eve on the case - and Eve can't say no. She'll have to track Tandy down while tracing the deals and double-crosses hidden in the files of some of the city's richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against a particularly vicious killer. Luckily, she has her multimillionaire husband Roarke's expertise to help with the numbers-crunching. But as he mines for the crucial data that will break the case wide open, Eve faces an all-too-real danger in the flesh-and-blood world.

    As always another suspensful listen. Keeps you on the edge of your seat. The story pulls you in from the very beginning, its hard to get out of the car. I really enjoy the mix of romance, murder and comedy that is entwined in all of the In Death Series of books.

    Enjoyed the humor in this book as Dallas tries to avoid the birthing of Mavis's bady. Nice twist to the story had me going trying to figure it out ahead of the ending. Robb is always a good book for commuting.

    Love these series of books. Love how the characters and relationships have developed. With each book you see Peabody's humor emerge more and more and I find myself smiling or laughing at the things she says and does.

    I feel this book spends too much time away from the plot which works when reading but no so much when listening. It's so lengthy and you have figured most of it out by the time the story takes you there. The narrator did not add to the story and I wasn't a big fan, but that is a personal preference. I was never eager to get back to the book which is my sign of a good book.
