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. . . .

Re: Fantasy in Death
I adore Eve Dallas! I have read almost all of the J.D. Robb series and am searching for the ones I have missed. I can'e wait to read this new one, Fantasy In Death.

The 30th book. I am most impressed.

I was an ardent follower of Eve Dallas's exploits until beginning 2002 my mother became seriously ill. While I was caring for her, I couldn't concentrate on most books and got far behind in my reading. For the last few years I've been trying to make that up, including continuing to read the Eve and Roarke books in order. I'm slowly catching up; there are just too many books in my TBR pile, i.e. boxes full.

I'm glad that Peaches is on the ball. Keep up the good work! Also congratulations on 30 Eve Dallas and Roarke books - I must have missed a few!

These are the kind of books I really like. They grab you and keep you guessing until the end.

I love the In Death series and have every book including the anthologies. I never wait for the pocket books but buy the hardcovers as soon as I can find them on the shelves. Eve and Roarke are the most complex couple I have heard or read about and the secondary characters round up the stories so very well. The mysteries are definitely very good, the facts work for me and there is humor included too. What else could you ask for?

Can't believe there have been 30 books
in this series. I don't know how she does
it, producing so many books under both
(Patricia Barraclough 9:52pm February 23, 2010)
I haven't read anything in this series but would love to!

I love the series and have read all but the last 2 of them. I will catch up. I have tried to hook others to JD Robb's books. Hope this is another success.
