FANTASY IN DEATH
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Futuristic
Lt. Eve Dallas is used to clever killers, but even she's baffled by her newest case. Perennial No. 1 Robb takes the locked-room mystery to a whole new level in her latest gritty puzzler. As always it's the interpersonal relationships and character connections that breathe real life into her long-running and always riveting series. A most excellent addition!
When Eve and her partner Peabody are called to a crime scene, they discover Bart Minnock, one of the founders of gaming giant U-Play, decapitated in a locked room with no weapons and no signs of forced entry. Since Bart's girlfriend and his partners, Benny, Cill and Var, appear sincerely grief-stricken, Eve has trouble generating suspects.
Everyone seemed to like the brilliant, friendly gamer, including Eve's husband, Roarke, who gave U-Play advice at its corporate launch. The gaming industry can be cutthroat, but who was diabolical enough to turn fantasy into hard-core death? (PUTNAM, Feb., 368 pp., $26.95)
