Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve. But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation. Determined to start working out as hard as she grills suspects, she chooses to do it at the old, rarely-used gym at Central. After a grueling workout, she squeezes into one of the narrow shower stalls, happy to have the place to herself. Just after she shuts the water off, the gym door clatters open - and while she cringes inside the stall, trying not to make a sound, Peabody overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. References are made to delivering product, and a house in the islands, and someone named Keener who's supposed to look like an OD. It doesn't take long for a naked and vulnerable Peabody to realize that both officers are crooked - guilty not just of corruption but of murder as well. Fortunately, the two clear out of the locker room without realizing there was a witness. Eve Dallas may have trained Peabody well - but this is too dangerous for one person to take on alone. Now Peabody, Eve, and her husband, Roarke, must try to get the hard evidence they need to bring the dirty cops down - knowing all the while that the two have already killed to keep their secret, and are no doubt willing to do it again.



  • I wasn't really into this book. The narrator did a good job though. The main character was way too preachy for my taste, it really annoyed me. The whole 50-year-in-the-future concept felt like a gimmick, only used as a way to avoid dealing with the real solutions to today's problems. It didn't contribute much to visualizing a future of law enforcement or the world in 2050. And seriously, an ending fist fight? Come on! I'm tempted to take away one more star.
  • Oh J.D., how much does a lady officer who's all about truth, dedication, goodness, and virtue love a cop mission? How many times will she lecture us about these cherished values just to sandwich in a couple of steamy sex scenes borrowed from sappy romance novels? "Treachery In Death" is basically a collection of long speeches intertwined with a flimsy police procedural plot. I had never given J.D. Robb a chance before this one went on sale. And after listening to it, I don't think I ever will again. I've heard rumors that Robb is just a pen name for a well-known writer, but trust me, it's a name I'd steer clear of. And as for Susan Ericksen... is that really how she thinks men sound? Maybe she improves when she's not trying to act out scenes that are as mind-numbing as a high school play put on by an English class. Oh, and there's a painfully predictable car fight thrown in for good measure, completely obliterating any semblance of credibility with the subtlety of a piano falling from a balcony. Nope, didn't enjoy it at all. They should have titled it "Treacle In Death". It's no wonder it ended up in the bargain bin.
  • This is my first experience with a J.D. Robb book and, right from the start, I had a feeling that it wasn't going to be a good one. However, I decided to give it a chance and kept listening, hoping that my initial impression would change. Unfortunately, as I reached the end, I realized that it was a complete waste of my time. The story is set in the "future," but there doesn't seem to be any real reason for this futuristic backdrop, except maybe for marketing purposes. The protagonist is portrayed as an exceptional leader for her team, with a wonderful husband and a satisfying sex life. The antagonist's villainy is apparent from the very beginning, and there is no complexity or surprising twists in the plot. In conclusion, I would only recommend this book to pass the time during long and boring flights.
  • I gotta say, this book has officially made it to my top 3 in the series. Man, I was totally hooked watching the team do their thing undercover. And let me tell ya, that part where Peabody was calling the shots as the "primary"? It had me grinning from ear to ear! And can we talk about Susan Ericksen? She was absolutely amazing, as always!
  • I'm a big fan of the "in death" series, but this particular book is, to put it bluntly, incredibly dull. It's truly disappointing. I actually gave it a second chance, hoping that maybe I missed something the first time around, but no such luck. The majority of the story involves Eve and other secondary characters droning on and on about various topics. There isn't much action, mystery, or romance to speak of. If you're someone who enjoys listening to Eve go on her lengthy, self-righteous rants, then this might be the book for you.
  • Treachery in Death is an absolute blast to listen to; I had a hard time tearing myself away from it, and I was genuinely sad when it came to an end. This book easily ranks in the top three of the entire series.
  • I'm sorry, but "Treachery in Death" wasn't really my cup of tea. The narrator did a decent job, but the plot felt quite straightforward and lacking in excitement. There were no surprises or unexpected twists to keep me engaged. Additionally, I wasn't particularly fond of Peabody's voice. Overall, I regret using my credit on this audiobook.
  • I totally agree with this review. Susan Erikson is absolutely amazing at giving each character their own distinct voice and bringing them to life. Her expertise as a linguist really shines through in her narration, and she is undeniably skilled at what she does. Overall, this book is exceptional. I'm eagerly anticipating the next installment in the series, NY2Dallas.
  • In my honest opinion, I suggest you save your credits because this book falls short compared to the usual Eve Dallas books. Normally, I can breeze through these books, including the most recent one, in just a couple of days as a light vacation read. However, I didn't enjoy this book as much in audio format, even though I've been listening to it during my daily commute. There are moments where I question why I'm even bothering to finish it, perhaps holding onto the hope that it will improve. The narration is exaggerated and artificial, making me think that this series is better suited for reading rather than listening, allowing me to skip through the dull parts. The sarcasm in the book is incredibly bitter, painting a frighteningly bleak world. Additionally, it feels rather mindless. It seems like this book was purely written for the sake of selling, lacking substance and being overly commercialized. I have faith that JD Robb can produce better work than this.
  • Susan Ericksen does a fantastic job narrating this series. "Treachery in Death" was a real delight. I've revisited the previous books in this series multiple times simply because they're so entertaining. If you're a fan of this series, don't skip this one. Have a good time!
  • This is my favorite book in the series. Peabody hears a conversation between 2 dirty cops . Eve and the crew go after these bad cops. The interaction between Eve and the illegals detective is excellent writhing. Robb really knows how to tell a story . The narrator is fantastic . great book
  • This one is my second fav of the series. I love the way Eve is not only developing in her relationship with Roarke but also with her squad members and associates. I also love how Peabody is growing skill wise. The narrator does an outstanding job with the emotional changes with each character. Love, love, love!!!
