Amaryllis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but she's been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she's taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn't just "one of us." Dallas's friend Chief Medical Examiner Morris had started a serious relationship with Coltraine, and from all accounts the two were headed for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that. After breaking the news to Morris, Eve starts questioning everyone, including Coltraine's squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve's husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on the dead woman's life back in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this case and their own painful, shadowy pasts. The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve, containing Coltraine's guns, badge, and a note from her killer: "You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, I'll be sending yours to somebody else." But Eve Dallas doesn't take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that's a promise.



  • I've been a huge fan of Nora Roberts since she burst onto the writing scene with her series romances many years ago. And when she started her "in death" series, I was completely hooked. I've read every single one, and now that they're available as audiobooks, my father-in-law has also become a fan. Listening to Susan Ericksen narrate these stories is an absolute delight. She brings each character to life with her unique voices and brings a whole new level of enjoyment to the experience. I really hope she continues to be the narrator for the J.D. Robb series because in my opinion, she's the best there is. Thank you, Susan, for making these audiobooks truly amazing!
  • I'm a big fan of all the In Death series, including this one. However, there was something about Peabody's voice in this particular audiobook that didn't quite sit well with me. It didn't match the voice I had imagined for her based on previous books I've listened to. But overall, I still enjoyed the book a lot.
  • Robb really knocks it out of the park once again with "Promises in Death: In Death, Book 28." This installment brings the beloved character Dallas and her entire crew back into action, allowing us to catch a glimpse into their personal lives. The murder mystery presented in this book is top-notch, and of course, Dallas comes to the rescue to save the day. It's truly a fantastic addition to an already amazing series. I highly recommend starting from the beginning to fully grasp the depth of each character and truly immerse yourself in this captivating world. Overall, it's some seriously good stuff.
  • This audiobook was incredibly dull and it required a lot of effort to stay focused during its lengthy duration. I developed a strong dislike for all the characters as they came across as shallow and obsessed with material possessions. Despite being set in 2060, it seemed pointless as it relied heavily on outdated "cop" stereotypes from the 1930s and failed to capitalize on its futuristic setting. The detective's deductions did not seamlessly connect to the clues provided to the reader, leaving me feeling dragged along through the story towards an unsatisfying conclusion.
  • Wow, I never expected to have a favorite among the books in the series. I thought they were all equally great, but this one was truly awesome. It made me cry and laugh uncontrollably. It had all the perfect elements, and each character played their part perfectly. I have to give a big shoutout to Susan Ericksen for bringing the stories to life over and over again. I felt so sorry for Morris and Alex, and I hope they find new love to heal their broken hearts. The ending epilogue was absolutely stunning. Butterflies hold a special significance for me, as I lost someone dear to me a few years back and they had a love for butterflies. So, to say that this book was touching doesn't even begin to describe it. JD, please continue to release more books because I am completely hooked!
  • It's pretty fascinating when an author writes better under their pseudonym than their real name... The In Death series has a mix of good and not-so-good books, but that's expected when you have, like, 43 or 44 books in the series, including the novellas... The narrator is fantastic. Having Roarke in my bed would be amazing. And honestly, I wish I had the bravery and compassion that Dallas shows in every single book. In reality, my ultimate dream is to possess the talent Nora Roberts, or in this case, J.D. Robb, has to put fantasies, thoughts, and words onto paper. In my opinion, it's the most incredible gift ever!
  • I should've known that this was actually penned by Nora Roberts, my bad. It's more of a romance novel pretending to be a murder mystery. I've never come across a mystery with such little action and an overwhelming amount of dialogue. The futuristic setting, advanced technology, and unfamiliar slang may have been an attempt to be cool, but it was just plain irritating. The characters lacked depth and the protagonist's husband was unrealistically perfect – incredibly intelligent, attractive, and wealthy, always by her side. Come on, seriously? My advice: unless you're a fan of this author, save yourself the trouble and skip this book.
  • In 'Promises in Death: In Death, Book 28', they introduce a fantastic present that Dallas absolutely loves - her very own customized vehicle designed to suit her aggressive driving style. It's safe to say that she gets plenty of mileage out of it!
  • I decided to take a break from the series for a few months because I felt like the stories were becoming repetitive. However, I'm glad I did because in "Promises in Death: In Death, Book 28", Roarke and Eve still feel fresh and familiar to me. I was eager to see what kind of trouble they would find themselves in this time. One thing I appreciate is that the sex scenes are no longer as explicit as before. It feels more true-to-life, if you ask me. After being married for almost two years, it's only natural for the frequency and intensity of their intimate moments to evolve. It's not realistic for a woman to constantly desire such rough and intense encounters, and I doubt many men could keep up with that pace either. So, the toned-down approach feels more authentic. Yes, they are still deeply in love, yes, their chemistry is still sizzling, and yes, they still enjoy being intimate regularly. But as readers, we are now mostly witnessing the aftermath and the moments of closeness that follow. There is a recurring element in the books that I don't particularly enjoy, which I initially thought was a one-time occurrence but has now become a regular feature in each book. It involves Eve's dreams, which have transitioned from nightmares to somewhat prophetic experiences. Really? Eve, the practical and no-nonsense Lieutenant, suddenly developing psychic abilities? I can understand her subconscious working through the facts during sleep (seriously, does she ever stop working?), but there have been instances where her dreams foretell events that she couldn't have known at that point. It feels a bit on the cheesy side for a character like Eve.
