Publisher's Summary

In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it.
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.

Silly

It sounds like it could be a good story but I just can't get passed the silly voices used by the narrator and the silly slang that the author uses to reinforce that this is set 30 odd years in the future.
In the end I lost patience and couldn't finish it.

Incomprehensible

Sounds like a cartoon, with silly voices. Not sure why it's set in the future either - there are a few misplaced references to technology, but it doesn't make sense and there is no discernible reason for it?
Maybe it all becomes clear at the end of this book, but I couldn't get past the comical narration and nonsensical setting, so only persevered for a couple of hours and quit...

Treachery in Death

Another great story in the death series. Peabody played a greater role in this story and new character were introduced and I think at least one will show up in future stories. I think Robb did a good job showing the feelings of betrayal that police officers have toward a crooked officer. The past was fast and Susan Ericksen does a great job reading the story. Can not wait for the next in the series.

Best book ever in J.D. Robb's Death Series

Treachery in Death is my favorite of all J.D. Robb's Death Series books. I have listened to them all in and out of order. Thank you J.D. Robb for keeping Eve Dallas & Roarke alive with a new offering each year.
In this book I feel J.D. Robb really lets us know each character to a fuller depth. From Eve, Roarke, Peabody, to the Chief, I feel I know them as if they were friends or family. The story is great and I loved every minute of it. I did not want it to end. Susan Ericksen makes these books come alive. She has got to be one of the best female narrator's of all time.
I loved this new addition to the 21st Century's "In Death" Series. Thank you J.D. Robb.

J D Robb Treachery

As usual another cracking story about Eve, Roarke and all her colleagues. I have read or listened to all this series so far and have never felt let down by any of the books. Long may this series continue

A real winner

The latest J. D. Robb continues to please - a taut-paced story dealing with corruption in the police, this reading kept me hooked. I've recently come to audiobooks because of a vision problem, and being an avid reader I wasn't sure if the audio version would hold up, but I wasn't disappointed. Eve Dallas, her husband Roarke, her partner Peabody, all come to life in this exciting thriller, and there was even a tear to my eye at the end. Highly recommended
