Summary:

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.

    The book was a little too short. By the time that I was really getting into it, the book was over. I'm a big fan of the series, and enjoyed a couple of the other novellas, but this one needed more.

  • Jean

    Found this book a bit short hated to have it end. This one had flash backs to the 1960s along with rock stars, haunted and cursed house. Enjoy the book set in the future 2060's and wonder how much the book will be correct in what the future holds. Robb is always a good fast pace read. It is great to have the same reader for the entire series.

    Disappointed in this one and is one of my least favorite of J.D.Robb's detective novels. It was too short and just didn't have the suspense which begged for rapt attention to this listener.

  • Angela Jones

    Not my favorite. It was really short and felt like it was missing a lot of the details.

    I have always enjoyed reading the J.D. Robb books but this is the first audio version I have listened to. The story was interesting, the ending difficult to guess and I enjoyed the little twist at the end that had Eve rethinking her beliefs. The reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars was the quality of the reading. Roark loses his strong masculinity and has a horrible Irish accent. Peabody is much too harsh and bossy, and finally, that bad Irish accent creeps in and out as various other characters speak. I found it very distracting in an otherwise enjoyable story.

    It was hard to keep my attention. Least favorite of J.D. Robb books I've read or listened to.

    This is a short book and lacks the substance of others in this series. Not bad, a quick read, but I would skip this novel to get the other "Eve Dallas" novels first.

    I love JD ROBB!! Her books characters are like friends. I feel as if I know them and even laugh at their antics in every book. The suspense is great and having the same characters read by the same narrator is great. You feel connected to them thru voice, inflections, etc. I haven't read a bad one yet!! Haunted was no different. Great to the end.

    JD Robb can't write a bad book! You simply can't go wrong with Robb...excellent read.

    I liked this book. really didnt have quite enough Peabody and McNab in it though that was one drawback. But it was fine read could of used a little more Direct threat to any of the major characthers.
