Editorial Reviews

Booklist
Gritty and steamy.
Literary Times
Very suspenseful.
Library Journal
This novella was originally published in the 1998 Christmas anthology Silent Night. While most people are celebrating the holiday, a murderer escapes from prison and returns with plans to torture and kill each of the people responsible for his incarceration. Lt. Eve Dallas quickly figures out who the perpetrator is and has protection placed on each of the intended victims. Despite this strategy, the killer kidnaps the people one by one. When Eve's friend Dr. Mira is kidnapped, Eve goes to the limit to save her. Fans of the Eve Dallas mysteries will want to listen to this, but it's not as satisfying as the longer books. While the mystery is riveting, the futuristic details and comedy that usually brighten the series are missing. Susan Ericksen has read many of Robb's futuristic crime novels and is adept at portraying Eve and her loyal friends. However, the brevity of the work doesn't allow Ericksen's talents to shine. Still, recommended for mystery collections.-Juleigh Muirhead Clark, John D. Rockefeller Jr. Lib., Colonial Williamsburg Fdn., VA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Finally the story about how Dr. Mira was put in a cage, it drove me crazy thinking that I had missed a storyline as I have read all of the IN DEATH series. This was a very quick read, it is only 90 pages, and takes place after Holiday In Death. Still has all the action and smart alek banter that I enjoy in this series plus a small look back at a case that ended before Roarke. A good read and great of Mrs. Roberts/J.D. Robb to tie up a loose end.

I down loaded the sample to see if I had read this and after all the lists there was no story to read! That can't be a sample if it is only the dedication and book reviews.

This book is 84 pages I want my three dollars back! As a rule I read reviews. needless to say I didn't read this one. Sorry I need to rate it to post. It's not worth one star unless you want only 84 pages I don't recommend this book.

Not only is this a short story, it is poorly written. It looks like the author couldn't develop the plot for a novel and just decided to publish a truncated version.

Good story. However being new to ebooks I didn't realize I was only getting a short story!! Imagine my surprise and disappointment. Taught me a lesson to always check for the quantity of pages. I was very unhappy with my purchase. I felt cheated.

I have read all of the IN DEATH series and thought they were great. This was too violent without the humor of McNabb or Peabody. This is the first J.D.Robb book I have been disappointed with.
SreWolfe More than 1 year ago
The most dissappointing factor was in the conclusion. It was almost as if Ms. Roberts was tired and wanted to get it over with so she just tossed out an ending with little prep. Having heard that many authors maintain "stables" of writers to manage large series, this would almost lend itself to that line of thought. It had all of the characters but not much of the substance of her other novels. Still, it was quite good as a novella and did fill in a prior referenced plot point, despite the wham-bam ending.

The story was okay, but I was expecting so much more fighting between Eve and Dave at the end. I was really let down.

Wow, what a disappointment. Save your money and read something else.

Yet again, J.D. Robb writes a fantastic story! Definitely recommend reading this one (especially if you're reading them in order). I'm so glad that we finally have a little bit more background info on Dr. Mira.

The reason this book is short because its in between the series. Theirs a book that combines three short stories, if you dont like the lenght of the book just get the three in one book. I love her writing and its not like any other female detective mystery novels that i've read. It has suspense, drama, romance and a perfect book to read. Dont complain about a short book and please give the author a chance than giving up on reading her series.

Nora Roberts writing as J.D.Robb, she is absolutely one of my favorite authors, she grabs you with characters that youve known since she began writing this series and they are all very well developed characters, the plot in this book is wonderful, keeps you guessing till the end and the steamy romance between Eve and Rourke, keeps you aware of their respect for one another which is another strong draw to her books. Thank you Ms Roberts for writing such great reads.

I spent $3.00 on this 84 page book. 7 pages of garbage befre story started. Story was boring with little to no typical Robb flare or characters. Hate to say it but this is last one I will buy of hers.

I was hoping that since this is a short story, and things were rushed along, the killers takedown would be more played out. But this was still a good side story, none the less.

I have been reading Nora Roberts (J.D. Robb) books for a while now and I can honestly say I have loved every one. She gets you so involved and linked with the charactors that it's hard to stop reading. Then you have to read the next one. I never get enough. She is at the top of my favorite writers.

This book is for anyone looking for a little mystery, a little romance and a lot of plot. Love this author and series. Definitely for a book club discussion.

Love JD Robb; but this book was too short to be in-depth to the character of Roarke or Eve. Guess you get what you pay for and this one was a freebee.

It was ok but the ending was very short and not very exciting. I expected more but maybe the ending is short because this is a short story.
