It is the most puzzling case Eve Dallas has ever faced: the founder of the computer gaming giant U-Play is found decapitated in his locked, private playroom.

This is the first of the 'in death' series that I have read and it fairs well as a stand alone story. Its not a book I would rave about however I did enjoy it and read it rather quickly once I got into it. Its always good when a murder mystery doesn't have a really obvious conclusion and I believe the author achieved this.read more

I hadn't read any of this series before and I found it hard going and slow with little progression in the first half of the book and I almost gave up on it. The sci-fi elements, whilst opening up the possibilities for more outlandish murder MOs, actually created a detatchment from the characters. I'm a fan of both crime and sci-fi and maybe I stepped in at the wrong point in the series, but I just wasn't as engaged with the story as I had been hoping.read more

A locked room mystery. Bart Minnock is one of four owners of a very successful computer gaming company. He brings home a new game to try out and winds up dead, in his locked holo-room. Detective Eve Dallas has to come up with a how, why and who. The how is relatively obvious from the out, particularly to the reader but the who kept me guessing until the book was nearly finished and the author did surprise me by setting up one of the other four for obviousness as the murderer and then proving beyond most doubt (look, I am a very suspicious person) that it wasn't them.These stories aren't just about the mystery, they're about the recurring characters. Nadine's book about Icove is out and the launch party is part of the story. Rourke and Dallas are still dealing with some issues and there isn't as much sex as you regularly get in the series.I enjoyed this, not as much as some of the others in the series but it still kept me reading and kept me wondering.read more

Oh, please! I think a holo program wrote this one.

I always enjoy books in this series for the characters and their interactions (I imagine the same way some people enjoy soap operas) but the plots can be hit and miss. This one was pretty much a miss for me. It's a locked room mystery involving very high-tech electronic games; it missed with me because I wasn't convinced anyone, even people in the near future, could do quite that much with bent light.

Another good murder mystery that Lt Eve Dallas and her team have to solve. This time though I had figured out the method by which the murder victim was killed before I was a third through the book, but what I couldn't figure out was who did it and why.
