Fantasy In Death
Book 30 in the In Death series

by J.D. Robb


Once again this reviewer was pulled into the world of Detective Eve Dallas, her handsome ex-criminal husband Roark, and a returning cast who always makes me feel at home. The added tension between Eve and Roark lends credibility to the plotline and an interesting question arises over when they will make up their differences.

In this whodunit, Eve is tracking a killer who seems to have literally killedd a Gamester creator without being in the room. When Bart Minnock’s decapitated body is discovered inside his locked holo-room, she is mystified. However, someone killed the mouthpiece of an up and coming Games company, and she will find him. As she’s trying to garner clues, Roark and Eve do not see eye-to-eye on everything she’s doing. This makes life a tad uncomfortable when she tries to balance work with her personal life. The closer she gets to the killer, the more wrapped up in the case she becomes. Tensions rise and Eve knows she has to trap her man before he or she can kill again. Another victim, also an owner of the company, is found dead, without a clue as to how the killer got in. Eve is spinning her wheels against media pressure, as well as her superiors clamoring for an answer. Everything comes to a head when she and Roark go to talk to one of the last two owners left, and a holo game traps them inside. When Roark goes down, Eve scrambles to stop the killer and save her husband before it’s too late.
