Robb’s latest installment in her popular In Death series starts with a bang and never lets up. In the not so distant future, NYPD homicide detective Eve Dallas is confronted with a horrific crime scene. On a quiet Friday night the patrons and staff at a popular watering hole suddenly and without warning began lashing out at one another in a bizarre frenzy of berserker violence. Lasting only 12 minutes, the violent outbreak leaves 80 people dead. Now it’s up to Dallas and her team to find out who is behind the carnage and how to prevent another attack. With dozens of In Death audiobooks to her credit, narrator Susan Ericksen is the voice of Eve Dallas. Ericksen knows Robb’s future world and its denizens inside and out—and that familiarity imbues her reading with confidence and clarity. The narrator’s characterizations are deftly executed, and the dialogue is presented with a natural delivery. A Putnam hardcover. (Sept.)
