New York Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her partner Peabody enter the hallowed halls of the Wilfred B. Icove Center for Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery on a case. A hugely popular vid star has been beaten to a bloody pulp - and has killed her attacker in the process. After a post-op interview, Dallas and Peabody confirm for themselves that it's a clear-cut case of self-defense, but before they can leave the building, another case falls into their hands.

Dr. Wilfred B. Icove himself has been found dead in his office - murdered in a chillingly efficient manner: one swift stab to the heart. Struck by the immaculate condition of the crime scene, Dallas suspects a professional killing. Security discs show a stunningly beautiful woman calmly entering and leaving the building: the good doctor's final appointment.

Known as "Dr. Perfect," the saintly Icove devoted his life to his family and his work. His record is clean. Too clean for Dallas. She knows he was hiding something, and suspects that his son, his successor, knows what it is. Then - like father, like son - the young Dr. Icove is killed . . . with the same deadly precision.

But who is the mystery woman, and what was her relationship with the good doctors? With her husband, Roarke, working behind the scenes, Dallas follows her darkest instincts into the Icoves' pasts. And what she discovers are men driven to create perfection - playing fast and loose with the laws of nature, the limits of science, and the morals of humanity.

    The End Made Me Cry
    In the end, you can’t always save everyone.

    This is another great addition to the series. As a mom, the end really hit me. I won’t say more, so I don’t spoil it, but this one tugs at the heart strings.

    From a mystery standpoint, I figured it out about 3/4 the way through. I enjoyed listening to the whole thing, and as usual the narrator is 5 stars!

    No voices
    Be better if she didn’t try to do voices, I find it difficult to enjoy the book. Love JD Robb

    A great listen
    It’s an interesting story and it makes for a great listen. It’s a little far fetched but who knows what we’ll be able to do by the 2050’s. If you’re a Dallas fan you can’t miss this, especially because it gets mentioned in the following handful of In Death books.

  4. Keneth Groden

    This is my favorite so far in the series. And I love the reader! Very glad she narrates all of the books in this series.

    Science Fiction Turned to plausibility
    I found this book especially interesting as it turned the cloning question on its head. Could there be cloned and if there is how should they be treated.

    Fantastic! As always J D Robb writes a marvellous plot. The mystery of why a well renowned doctor of reconstructive and cosmetic of surgery who devoted his life to his family and his work was murdered was very, very good. And when his son who was also murdered in the same way as he happened, Lt Eve Dallas suspects there is something hidden that is not out in the open. With the help of Roarke, her husband and her team they worked diligently to uncover the truth. The ending and solution was good.

    origin in death
    always exciting , great story line and Susan Ericksen does a great job bringing all the characters to life

    Good story but……..
    I liked the story but I’m thoroughly irked that the narrator cannot pronounce the name of one of the main characters. Her name is PeaBODY NOT Peabuddy. Every time she says Peabody’s name I liken it to fingernails down a blackboard. Did anyone listen to her read before she was hired? Unbelievable!

  9. Christie G.

    So Playing with Genetics.
    These books just get better and better. Now we have a strange genetic thing going on, mind boggling. The narration again utterly fantastic. In the play comes Roarke’s family for Thanksgiving and isn’t that a challenge when a baby makes a beeline for Eve!

    FAVORITE Eve Dallas so far!

    Could have been better – but still good
    Any additional comments?

    This series is fresh and entertainingly!
    The cases detective Eve Dallas works on are complex and horrible. The intricacy of the Dre tails and interweaving of the characters while building them in each book is mesmerizing. Loved eve and Rourke’s reaction to children.

  13. Darlena Wolfley

    just terrible
    Terrible execution of an interesting idea. Obvious and repetitive, you can see each twist coming a mile a way. It kept reminding me of the terrible 1980s movies about the future. Don’t even get me started on the gender issues. Yuck.

  14. Fredric S.

    Love the Series… This one is just okay

    Horrible accents
    Where does Origin in Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

  16. Constance B.

    One of the best
    All of the In Death books are good, but this one is particularly so. Poignant, humorous, and shocking at the same time.

  17. Dorthey Fondell

    Good Story, Very High-Tech
    One of the more futuristic entries in the “In Death” series. This combines interesting social questions with a peak at Roarke’s personal life

  18. Charisse C.

    Loved it, Eve and Rourke are fantastic. The story line was very good, didn’t see that ending coming as Eve is such a stickler for the law. Susan Erickson’s voice was made for the in Death series. Loved it, would definitely recommend it

  19. HPH

    Eve and Rourke cannot be beat!
    My second of the death series, I buy them when they are on sale, there are so many and I plan on continuing this series. Eve and Rourke are sooooo good together as lovers and as sleuths. Eve is feisty, no nonsense and impatient, Rourke is sweet, patient and tender. The story gets a little technical in the end, I had to go back and review a few times but it is interesting with a little x-files in it. The year is like 2040 or something but it is not extreme, just fun to imagine. The narrator is great, she is the voice of the death series and there would probably be a riot if they changed to someone else.
