"Technology has advanced in 2060 New York City, but childbirth has been the same since the beginning of time. And despite the brutal double homicide on Lieutenant Eve Dallas's caseload, she has to be there for her pregnant friend Mavis, even if it means throwing the dreaded baby shower ... But Mavis needs an even bigger favor now. Tandy Willowby, one of the moms-to-be in her class, has gone missing, just days before her due date -- not even showing up at the shower at Eve and Roarke's place that she'd been looking forward to so much. A recent emigrant from London, Tandy has few friends in New York, and no family. When Eve enters Tandy's apartment and finds Mavis's shower gift wrapped and ready on the table - and Tandy's packed hospital bag still on the floor - her spine starts tingling. Normally, this would be turned over to Missing Persons. Eve has more than enough on her plate trying to find out who murdered Natalie Copperfield and her fianc℗♭́Ư, both employed at a highly prestigious accounting firm. But Mavis wants no one but Eve on the case - and Eve can't say no. She'll have to track Tandy down while tracing the deals and double-crosses hidden in the files of some of the city's richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against a particularly vicious killer. Luckily, she has her multimillionaire husband Roarke's expertise to help with the numbers-crunching. But as he mines for the crucial data that will break the case wide open, Eve faces an all-too-real danger in the flesh-and-blood world" -- from publisher's web site.

I have been listening to all of the books in the In Death series in order. This one might be my favorite because I have a soft spot for the characters involved in this book. Mavis is such a compelling character because of the way she has come from the bottom and through her friendship with Eve has been able to pull herself up and become a better person. She is fiercely loyal to both Eve and Tandy which reminds me of friendships that I have with others. This comraderie really brings the story together and makes for a touching read. I also want to give a big shout out to Susan Erickson. She is the one of the greatest audiobook narrator I have ever listened to. She is a master at doing different voices and accents so that I do not feel that any two characters sound alike. I would recommend anything that she narrates.
