Survivor in Death by J.D. Robb

I’ve been slowly rereading the In Death series, intermingled with other books. Survivor in Death follows Visions in Death. This book is one of my favorites as it introduces one of my favorite characters.

A quote from Survivor in Death by J.D. Robb

After learning about the series the first time back in 2001, I promptly read them all. At least, I read all of those books that had been released. But somewhere along the line, I stopped reading the current ones so I have needed to go back and read the series again. That’s why I’m re-reading these.

A quote from Survivor in Death by J.D. Robb

You wouldn’t think that getting up in the middle of the night because you wanted to sneak a fizzy drink would save your life. Yet, that is how it happened for nine year old Nixie Swisher. Because she was out of bed and not where she was supposed to be, Nixie survived the family annihilation that Eve Dallas found once Eve arrived at the Swisher residence. Nixie called 911 as she saw the two men come in, but then she hid in her parents’ bathroom after seeing that her parents were dead.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In Survivor in Death, Eve must discover who is trying to kill the Swishers. As Nixie is the only survivor of the family massacre, Roarke takes on the responsibility of finding some place for Nixie when the Dysons decide that they can’t take her. Will someone come after Nixie when they discover that she’s the only survivor?


This story is #20 of J.D. Robb’s In Death series. It takes place right after Visions in Death. This one is so good. The scene where Nixie sees her parents’ bodies in the morgue is just heartbreaking.

My plan for 2022 is to write three blog posts a week- one about a fantasy book, one about a mystery book, and one about a romance book (with some posts about series thrown in). This one is a mystery so if you’re a mystery lover, then you’ll want to check it out!
