In this gritty and gripping new audiobook in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Eve Dallas fights to save the innocent—and serve justice to the guilty—on the streets of New York. Homicide cop Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke, are building a brand-new school and youth shelter. They know that the hard life can lead kids toward dangerous crossroads—and with this new project, they hope to nudge a few more of them onto the right path. For expert help, they hire child psychologist Dr. Rochelle Pickering—whose own brother pulled himself out of a spiral of addiction and crime with Rochelle’s support. Lyle is living with Rochelle while he gets his life together, and he’s thrilled to hear about his sister’s new job offer. But within hours, triumph is followed by tragedy. Returning from a celebratory dinner with her boyfriend, she finds Lyle dead with a syringe in his lap, and Eve’s investigation confirms that this wasn’t just another OD. After all his work to get clean, Lyle’s been pumped full of poison—and a neighbor with a peephole reports seeing a scruffy, pink-haired girl fleeing the scene. Now Eve and Roarke must venture into the gang territory where Lyle used to run, and the ugly underground world of tattoo parlors and strip joints where everyone has taken a wrong turn somewhere. They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they’re concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering’s murder has run out of chances… *To solve the audio puzzle within this program, visit macmillanaudio.com/connections
Connections provides the endings and another beginning.
I have just finished “Connections in Death” and recommend it most highly to those of you who have read the rest of the “in Death” series by this author. I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and believe that you will find the answer to many questions that might ha seemed left in the air as you have worked your way through all of the previous books.
Many series are composed of stand alone volumes featuring the same character set, adding to it from time to time. This series builds upon a theme and, in my opinion, is best read in the order suggested by the book number.
I have read each of these books in order and they weave an interesting, while very complex, web of cases and life events that are drawn together in the background of this work and allow you to appreciate some of the nuances that may have escaped the readers notice earlier.
The author, editors, and narrator have come together on this work to allow the reader to understand many of the cast of characters that heretofore were not understood as individuals.
My hope is that this series will continue and that the characters will continue will continue to develop as the series progresses.
I look forward to continuing this series in the near future.
I listen to an average of two audiobooks a week and this one is the worst I’ve ever listened to. I stopped on chapter 3 because it makes no sense so far. I’m not sure if it’s the author, the writing style, or the narrator. I do not recommend this book.
