#37 in the "In Death" Series


Lieutenant Eve Dallas investigates the murder of Bart Minnock, the founder of the computer gaming company U-Play. He was found decapitated in a locked holo-room in his apartment. He seemed to be playing a game at the time of his death.
The victim was a happy, nice young man who was loved by everyone around him. He had a good, healthy, normal life, and lived and breathed his work “games”.
Eve puzzles over “who”, “why” and “how”. Who would want to kill him? Why? And how did the killer enter the apartment, sever the head from the body, and then leave the room without a trace? No weapons and no security breaches were found.
With help from her tech-savvy husband Roarke, Eve and her team strive to solve the locked-room mystery...



The case was very intriguing. It was a fascinating futuristic locked-room mystery. It kept me guessing “who”, “how” and “why” thorough out the book. However, I thought it would have been even better, if there had been a twist at the end.
Unlike Kindred in Death, there were many interactions among the In Death gang. The banter between Eve and Peabody was back. There were so many laugh-out-loud moments and some truly memorable Eve & Roarke moments that I thought Nora almost made up for the lack of them in Kindred in Death.
The scenes between Eve & Roarke in this book were really great, because not only were there lots of touchy-feely and lovey-dovey moments, but there were frictions between them as well. Which made their relationship more real.
Because of the nature of the case, friendship was the main theme in the book. Thus we get to see the friendship between the characters. One of my favorite scenes is where Nadine gives Eve a book (it's a non-fiction book about the Icove case from Origin in Death, which Nadine wrote and had just been published). It was very touching. The dedication page got me teared up.
Speaking of touching, I really liked the end where Roarke gets seriously injured during the sword fight (Eve and Roarke are forced to play this deadly e-game by the killer). Eve's reaction to his injury and the conversation they have after the case was solved are quite poignant. That whole scene became another one of my many favorite Eve & Roarke moments.



MAJOR SPOILER 












Every now and then, Nora makes small mistakes, but sad to say there was a MAJOR error in this book.


"I knew you for a cop the minute I laid eyes on you. And I know without understanding how or why, that you would change things. I'll never regret that moment or any that followed."



I was really really disappointed in this mistake, because Roarke reminisced about their first meeting again and again throughout the series, saying he hadn't pegged Eve for a cop at first...
