In a world of danger and deception, she walks the line--between seductive passion and scandalous murder... Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer.

And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire--and a suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about--except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

Great book! Arthur really knows how to capture the reader, every page catches my attention. Every detail jumps off the page!

Great story and characters! Can’t wait to read the next one.

Awesome plot. Real characters. Slick storyline. I read this book over 15 years ago. Came back and it was as awesome as the first time.

Why must there always be some egotistic chief of police who hates the smart woman cop? It gets so old.

Great beginning to a brilliant series

Love this series have yet to finish it but will get there

Great read.

Love these books so very much!!! Waiting for the next one to be released is increasingly hard, totally well worth it!!! This series is wonderful and she writes it so well. I have everything she has published and enjoy them very much. CRS

It’s great story but not perfect plot with stale characters like women detective and millionaire handsome guy.

It was hard for me to focus on. Long winded.

Great 1st book! Sometimes funny that book set in future reflects somewhat on present

Great story—have always wanted to read in chronological order of the IN DEATH SERIES. Now, I have the opportunity!!! Book 1 did not disappoint me. In fact, cleared up some puzzlements. Am eagerly going to be purchasing all in this series. I am enjoying the books in eBook form too! 🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰

Great story, kept my interest, thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you, Nora. I will certainly be reading the rest of these.

Gripping, sexy and a great read! I’ve read it several times and enjoy it every time.

The Best!!!

All of Ms Robb’s books are awesome. I went to a half price book store and slowly found the books that I hadn’t read. I love her books and the characters Eve Dallas and her Irish husband. I like that he eventually had a relationship with her and got married. He treats her really well. Keep up the good work Ms Robb. Take care and stay safe.

Excellent beginning to a compelling series.

The book is stupidly unreadable and predictably trite. If I had rolled my eyes any harder they would have fallen out of my head. Deleted book before reaching third chapter.

This is a great start to the whole “In Death” series. ♥️

This is a good book.

I loved this book! It was pretty easy to get into and kept my interest. I read the whole book in under twenty-four hours. The book is a mystery and romance but manages to stay interesting. I strongly recommend this book to all adult readers.

I don’t know where to start. I thought I would check out this series because I’m always looking for another great author. I didn’t find one here. I thought that it looked like a successful and popular series and if so many people have enjoyed these books then they must be pretty good. If they are anything like this one, they aren’t. I won’t be wasting any more time On them.

Great story. Great introduction to a uncommon relationship. I’m sure there’s more pleasure and mystery to come.

Very good!!

This is my first JD Robb book. Now, I am hooked. Have already read three others and plan to read the Death Series. Pure entertainment! Nora Roberts never disappoints. Love her style of writing. The best! 😊

I'm a fan of Nora Roberts so it was an easy leap to begin reading this book, the first in the Eve Dallas series. I'll read the others to see how Eve's career and love life progresses. Eve alone is a kick butt woman, but partnered with Roarke, we get to see a different side of her! Two for one kind of story which J.D. Robb(Nora Roberts) does so well! Read this book and you're bound to fall in love with the tough lady cop intrigued, reluctantly, with the hero that sweeps her off her feet!

Definitely a page turner. The romance between Roarke and Dallas was hot! The ending was pretty good as well, not a total shocker when you find out who did it, but still nicely wrote all the same. Could definitely see this as a movie.

Excellent as always! I've missed these books & can't wait until the next one.

I'm completely in love with these books. I continually read them front to back again and again. Well written, colorful, amazing. They draw me into there pages and I can't put them down.

I read this about five years ago after I found a tattered copy in a box of books my mother had. I'm not a big sucker for romance type detective stories but when I started reading I couldn't put it down. Even though I've read this a dozen times or more it still keeps me hooked. Naked in Death and Survivor in Death are my two favorites out if the In Death series.

Great reading!

I have reread this series at least 15 times! This is an outstanding beginning to this series. J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors. This is the series that introduced me to her and the character development that she has.

I love this book. I'm happy that I finally am able to own the collection!!! Now to start reading the next book!!

I started reading this series years ago but never got to read the first book of how Eve and Roarke met. So glad I found it! It definitely keeps you guessing - and you truly don't figure it out until the end. Love J.D Robb stories :)

Love it.

I've read a few JD Robb books and been pleased with every one. I started out listening to audio books, and got hooked after "Born in Death". There were these fascinating characters, but the main hook was Eve and Roarke. Their relationship carried the book when the mystery lagged a little bit. I read this book becasue I wanted to read how everything started. After the familiarity with Peabody and Mcnabb, it was interesting going back when everyone was introduced. By the way, Peabody and McNabb don't make an appearance in this book. "Naked in Death" does really well with the human element. I care about these characters, especially Eve Dallas, the hardened female cop. I'm a guy and straight, but I love strong female characters. They start redefining the female stereotype, and Eve is the perfect example. She's down to earth, makes great comments, but the best part, is that she cares for the dead and her job. After the initial walkthrough of the first crime scene, the reader feels the unnecessary loss just as Eve does. JD Robb doesn't mush up the scene either, but gives a perfect mixture of seriousness and sympathy. "Naked in Death" is at its core a mystery novel. Yes there's romance, and yes the scenes can get quite graphic, but the story is the mystery. Having read over ten of her novels so far, the mysteries have been up and down between good to great. This one was a great one. It's nothing like throwing in a mystery around the setting of the novel. We're in the late 21st century, and how better to show it than killing a legalized prostitute. JD Robb does a great job integrating current law and current customs in the new United States. Prostitution is legal now, as long as one has a license, and guns are now prohibited. The mystery showcases this new New York quite well, and the story doesn't just use the "future" tag to lure in more readers. Robb explains it, and brings the time to life. Back to the mystery. Without giving anything away, the plot does give some twists and the conclusion is quite satisfactory. People read JD Robb books for different reasons. Some for the mystery, and some for the romance. This is when JD Robb shows her Nora Roberts colors. Love is in the air, but it isn't awkward at all. Roarke is a cool guy, and quite complex. Outside of Eve, he's my other favorite character. The man is richer than God, but still has heart and a comedic personality. Roarke provides the readers with a smirk, and we soon see him as the really cool rich guy. The chemistry between the two is great, and as I said, helps move the story along. All in all, "Naked in Death" is a great start for this series. The mystery is compelling and the origin story between Roarke and Eve couldn't get any better.

This is the first and the best of the in death series.

I sent out a Facebook request for book recommendations and this series was highly rated. I really enjoyed it and couldn't wait to buy the next one!

I read this book a long time ago, re-read it again. Loved it before, still love it.

Can't get enough of Dallas and Roarke!!

After reading good reviews I decided to read the Eve Dallas series in order. Naked in Death is a simple crime story that wasn't too hard to figure out whodunit halfway through the novel. But the characters were great and kept me interested throughout. I'm a big fan of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosh novels and I'm happy to find another cop character to follow. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of this series.


I'm not usually one for detective stories, but a trusted friend, who's screen name reads Roarkisdreamy, testified to the worthiness of this series, and being without anything to read, I chanced this first of the series. I'm also not one for futuristic Sci Fi anymore, though I partook plenty in my youth, so the first few pages scared me when I realized the story was set in a time after I'm off planet the old fashioned way. Anyway, long story short, I was seduced, almost immediately by the depth of Eve's character. The writing was not disappointing, the story and mystery unfolding were compelling, and the sex scenes were warm and satisfying. My friend Ro, as we call her, happy to hear I was satisfied, assured me that this book wasn't even her favorite of the series. Hence, I'm off to purchase more. Happy reading!

Haven't read like this in years! The plot was as thick as molasses and turned so sharply. Loved the wicked and nonconventional nature of the main character. Surprisingly the futuristic nature was well described, a must buy.

I read this book in less than twenty four hours, and that included work and sleeping! This was a fast read, but in a good way, it zipped along at a great clip, the author wasted no words and I respect that. I loathe extensive scene set ups, I don't need the pattern of the carpet thanks though. The two main characters are so well written, they pull you in, you root for them. I literally cannot wait to see what these two get up to next! Btw the sex was hot, hot, hot, and the heat between them practically came off the page!

I've been reading Nora Roberts since 1981, and I'm completely obsessed with her writing, especially J.D. Robb. I hope she continues to write such great pictures as long as I live(I'm 81yrs)

I found a book of this series for sale and got hooked! If you love action packed murder mysteries with just enough romance you will b addicted I know I am! Love this series!
