Publisher Comments:

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 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. . . .

Review:

"Set in 2060, the gripping 36th Eve Dallas novel (after Celebrity in Death) from bestseller Robb (the pseudonym of Nora Roberts) opens at On the Rocks, a bar on Manhattan's Lower West Side, where the patrons, mostly 'white-collared working stiffs,' are enjoying happy hour. Suddenly, everyone in the bar inexplicably turns on each other, and a bloodbath ensues. Lt. Eve Dallas of the New York Police and Security Department investigates, even though her husband, Roarke, is the owner of On the Rocks. Eve discovers a possible link to the apocalyptic Red Horse cult, which orchestrated attacks with airborne hallucinogens during the Urban Wars of the early 21st century. While Robb serves up twists and turns in ample portions, the main attraction is still the character of Eve, who will win over readers with her ability to persevere in seeking a killer while coping with her personal demons. Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

In the latest suspense thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, the year 2060 is drawing to a close in New York City and loved ones are coming together for Thanksgiving. But sometimes the deepest hatreds seethe within the closest relationships, and blood flows faster than water…

 

Lieutenant Eve Dallas has plenty to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarkes big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but its a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood.

 

Other couples arent as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying in their home stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned—and heartbroken by the evidence that they were murdered by their own son. Twenty-six-year-old Jerry hadnt made a great impression on the bosses who fired him or the girlfriend who dumped him—but they didnt think he was capable of this.

 

Turns out Jerry is not only capable of brutality but taking a liking to it. With the money hes stolen from his parents and a long list of grievances, he intends to finally make his mark on the world. Eve and her team already know the who, how, and why of this murder. What they need to pinpoint is where Jerrys going to strike next.

Synopsis:

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no party girl, but she's managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases. It's a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing the actress who plays Peabody drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director's luxury building. Now she's at the center of a crime scene-and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster and step into the role she was born to play: cop.
