The first in Robb’s series featuring New York Police Detective Eve Dallas involves the detective in the high-profile murder of the granddaughter of a senator. It also begins her relationship with Roarke, the dashing businessman with a shadowy past who finds Dallas enormously intriguing. Susan Ericksen’s narration is near perfect. Her deep voice conveys Dallas’s straightforward nature and troubled history, as well as Roarke’s soft Irish accent and suppressed emotion. She provides all the characters, no matter how minor, with interesting vocal presences and gives full measure to scenes of tension and danger. Newcomers to the series will want to hear more, and those who know the characters will find that Ericksen does them justice. M.A.M.
