Description

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 naIve, 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.

Professional reviews

"Susan Ericksen is at the top of her game in this 31st edition of the futuristic In Death series, featuring Eve Dallas. Young and likable e-geek Bart Minnock is found murdered in a secure room while working on a new computer game. Eve, New York's "top cop," and her hunky husband, Roarke, along with the usual eclectic and skillfully portrayed cast of characters, must solve the classic locked-room mystery. Funny, touching, and suspenseful--this production has it all. Eriksen's portrayals are distinct, well acted, and perfectly matched to the characters. This is everything one hopes for when the headphones go on. A.C.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
