Hampered by her limited knowledge of gaming, Eve relies on Peabody, McNabb and her own `fantastical' husband, Roarke, to help her determine who killed Bart and why. No small task, given that no one even knows what killed Bart or how he or she managed it!
Set in 2060, every day life has changed drastically but believably from today's world. Electronic and computerized gadgets abound but don't seem to have done anything to help ease the pace of life. For as advanced as this world is from ours, murder is still an everyday occurrence for New York City's Homicide cops.
**** FOUR STARS! Fantasy in Death slam-dunks you into a brain twister of whodunits that will have you guessing right until the murderer(s) is/are fingered...but even then, the action isn't over. What comes after that will have you on the edge of your seat, mouth agape!! Talk about getting hit out of left field!! It leaves me wondering just how far computers and gaming can really go! ****

U-Play is a fast-rising gaming company with a quartet of co-owners. One of them takes the disk home for a game in development, and literally loses his head over it. Lt. Eve Dallas is faced with a locked-room mystery where she and her team have to find out not only who did it, but how it was done.
Reading Robb has always been one of my guilty pleasures. I enjoy her voice and her humor. Only Robb can write a conversation about private parts that is neither silly, salacious or scatological, but is laugh-out-loud funny. She has such a wonderful ear for dialogue and banter. I appreciated her references to books, literature, television and movies, including a delightful homage to 'The Godfather.'
She also does a very good creating life in 2060; the not-too-distant future. It's a tricky balance of making it seem possible but not fantastical''It's always fiction until science catches up.'
The focus of this book was relationships; friends, partners, lovers. It is nice watching Eve develop emotionally with each book and the sexual relationship with Roark, while still there, be less prominent. The usual supporting relationships were all there in a more cameo role than in the past, but they contributed to the theme.
Where the book fell apart a bit, for me, was the plot. It started off really well as a locked-room mystery. There were viable suspects and some good red herrings. However, because of the type of crime, it didn't quite make sense that Eve was the one who came up with the solution; the logic, perhaps, but not the technicality.Read more ›

Another excellent story by J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts)! I continue to order more of the books in this "in Death" series in order to follow the interesting characters.Published on Dec 17 2013 by S. A. Cox
I loved the murder and the solving of it, but found the cast of characters limited. Where are our favourites. Read morePublished on Feb. 28 2010 by Patricia Piitz
