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...

Lots of funny moments and great dialogue. Maybe a bit predictable but so enjoyable to read.

Man, I thought I was going to get my wish and have Roarke killed off. Oh well

This is an interesting page turner. How can anyone possibly be so gruesomely murdered in a totally secure room? Lieutenant Eve Dallas is pitted against a world of fantasy and the fantastical.

This series is great and Eve Dallas a kick ass character.

Much of this was a waste of time. We are given the means of murder when the book opens, yet Dallas et al spend page after page speculating about how it was done. But for the reader, the only question was who, so most of this is redundant. A quick skim is all you need.

Pretty good addition to the series. Some great one liners between Eve and Peabody but some unneeded angst between Eve and Roarke. Also, not being a video gamer myself, the murder setting and modus operandi became a bit boring after awhile. But it had a good ending.
