J.D. Robb is the psuedonym of Nora Roberts, the number one New York Times bestselling author of more than one hundred novels. With more than 300 million copies of her books in print, and 144 New York Times bestsellers to date, Nora Roberts is indisputably the most celebrated women's fiction writer today.
Naked in Death features Lt. Eve Dallas of the NYPD as she searches for a serial killer of prostitutes. It hints at the isolation, neglect, and sexual abuse that Eve suffered as a child, memories that she tries to suppress. The adult Eve is slow to trust and awkward when faced with affection and kindness. Yet over the course of this series, she acquires a husband, Roark; a partner, Peabody; and a varied host of friends-hard-boiled reporter Nadine, humanitarian doctor Louise, and worldly wise, bursting with life, rock star Mavis, all characters who also appear in Visions in Death. The culprit in Visions is raping, murdering, and mutilating women seen by a psychic in her dreams. Susan Ericksen renders each individual with proficiency; indomitable Eve and spunky Peabody's verbal sparring is adroitly delivered, and she moves easily and distinctly between the two women. Ericksen is equally successful with the male characters. Both books are great fun to listen to, but buy the whole series.-Juleigh Muirhead Clark, John D.
