Description

In this thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling In Death series, it's game over for the criminals who cross Lieutenant Eve Dallas as she investigates the murder of a virtual reality wunderkind.

Bart Minnock, founder of the computer gaming giant U-Play, is found in his locked private playroom, in a pool of blood, his head separated from his body. Despite his violent end, Eve can’t find anyone—girlfriend and business partners included—who seemed to have a problem with the enthusiastic, high-spirited millionaire.

Of course gaming, like any business, has its fierce rivalries and dirty tricks—as Eve’s husband, Roarke, one of U-Play’s competitors, knows well. But Minnock was not naïve, and he knew how to fight back in the real world as well as the virtual one.

Eve and her team are about to enter the next level of police work, in a world where fantasy is the ultimate seduction—and the price of defeat is death...

    I have read every book in this series so far. I think this one is one of the best stories. You don’t know who done it until almost the end. It’s a puzzle, a very good one. This ROCKS.

    Excellent book. Enjoyed the challenge of figuring it out. A little disappointed in how the murders were done. A bit far fetched.
  • Formulaic, as expected... and fun, also as expected

    JD Robb books are my dirty little secret. The writing is often hackneyed, which isn't helped by the lack of proofreading and editing by Penguin's staff of--well, apparently penguins (no offense to penguins intended). Despite the messes in this e-book (and undoubtedly the printed version as well), it's a fun read. Always predictable, with easy-to-skip-over color-by-numbers, yawn-worthy love scenes (they're thankfully few and far between), I have nonetheless gotten a kick out of every one of the books in this series. Now, however, I can buy them under cover of darkness instead of wearing a trench coat and shades to the local bookstore. Win-win!
