Publisher's summary

Bart Minnock, founder of the computer gaming giant U-Play, enters his private playroom, and eagerly can’t wait to lose himself in an imaginary world, to play the role of a sword-wielding warrior king, in his company’s latest top-secret project, Fantastical.

The next morning, he is found in the same locked room, in a pool of blood, his head separated from his body. It is the most puzzling case Eve Dallas has ever faced, and it is not a game.

Lt. Eve Dallas is having as much trouble figuring out how Bart Minnock was murdered as who did the murdering. The victim’s girlfriend seems sincerely grief-stricken, and his quirky-but-brilliant partners at U-Play appear shocked as well. No one seemed to have a problem with the enthusiastic, high-spirited millionaire of course, success can attract jealousy, and 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.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Another Home Run!

JD Robb knocks it out of the park once again! This book provides a great mystery with an interesting twist while allowing us the pleasure of seeing this fantastic cast of characters interact and evolve in their relationships. It amazes me that this author has managed to write 30+ installments in this series without compromising the quality and integrity of its characters or storyline (take note, Janet Evanovich!) If you are already a fan, you wont' be disappointed. If you are new to the series, I recommend starting at the beginning with "Naked in Death" and enjoying the ride!

By the way, Susan Ericksen IS the voice of Eve Dallas. She, too, has done a great job with narration and character distinction throughout this entire series.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.

Great Addition to the Series

Since creating the Eve Dallas series, J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) has made each new book in the series express growth in the characters and overall story of their lives. This book continues that tradition. The growth element in this book examines what "friendship" means to different people. The author twines this thoughtful and accurate assessment with a great 2060 E-game science fiction plot line. The detail she uses when writing about potential technology in the future makes the story so plausable -- it makes you excited to see those things actually created. I have read many complete series by different authors in sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, historical fiction, etc. All to often the characters remain mostly the same as they experience different events in new books. In this series, the characters grow, struggle with their less than stellar qualities, open their hearts to the risk of caring about others,... in other words...they evolve just like real people do in their own lives if their not sleep walking. There are many wonderful things in the way these stories are crafted, but this one aspect puts this series at the top of my list.
