'The 50th book proves this series truly is the gold standard.” — Associated Press

In the latest thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, homicide detective Eve Dallas investigates a murder with a mysterious motive—and a terrifying weapon.

Pediatrician Kent Abner received the package on a beautiful April morning. Inside was a cheap trinket, a golden egg that could be opened into two halves. When he pried it apart, highly toxic airborne fumes entered his body—and killed him.

After Eve Dallas calls the hazmat team—and undergoes testing to reassure both her and her husband that she hasn’t been exposed—it’s time to look into Dr. Abner’s past and relationships. Not every victim Eve encounters is an angel, but it seems that Abner came pretty close—though he did ruffle some feathers over the years by taking stands for the weak and defenseless. While the lab tries to identify the deadly toxin, Eve hunts for the sender. But when someone else dies in the same grisly manner, it becomes clear that she’s dealing with either a madman—or someone who has a hidden and elusive connection to both victims.

Love ALL the In death series books. Susan Erickson is the best narrator I have ever heard. She brings all the characters in the books to life. It’s like your watching a movie with your eyes closed!

The book was interesting and kept the excitement up as JD Robb always does. Eve seems to be getting more sentimental. While I have never been a narrator and this is only my 2nd Audiobook I did not care for the narration. While I appreciate her attempts at accents they just did not ring true for the characters.

Very boring. Couldn’t get past 12 minutes. Narrator’s voice irritating!
