From the Publisher
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,
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 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 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. . . .
