In the latest novel from #1 New York Times-bestselling author J.D. Robb, it is game over for the criminals pursued by NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas. 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. . . . NYPSD Lieutenant 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 equally shocked. No one seemed to have a probĀ­lem 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 quite capable of fighting 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. . . . Watch a Video

4.0 Fantasy in Death (In Death, #30)
For me, this Eve Dallas installment was interesting, because it centered around using a gaming system to murder. I thought it was a rather ingenious murder weapon, but the murderer's reasoning for killing felt a bit on the weak side. It reminded me a lot of [b:Rapture in Death|6593768|Rapture in D...

I knew who the murderer was and how they did it right away. I tried to keep reading, but I couldn't get into it because the investigation seemed pointless when I already knew the ending. So I skipped ahead to like, 75% or something, and managed to catch things at just the right time to pick things u...

4.0 Fantasy in Death (In Death, #30)
[7/24/15]The first time I read this I gave it five stars, but after the second I had to cut it to four. It's still a very enjoyable, suspenseful locked room mystery, but the resolution is so unbelievable that I just had to drop one star. It makes a good story, but it's just wrong. And unusual for...

5.0 Fast & Fun!
This time a really nice, smart guy is killed in the most horrible way and the team gets to work. Fantasy is a small mystery oppose to most of the others in this series that call in the entire police force. There are some seriously funny moments when Peabody worries about her butt, what shoes should ...
