Lt. Eve Dallas, a top homicide cop for the New York Police and Security Department (the law enforcement agency for a mid 21st-century New York City), faces one of the more challenging cases of her career in bestseller Robb's exciting 31st in death novel (after Kindred in Death). When someone cuts off the head of Bart Minnock, the genius founder of the computer gaming company U-Play, apparently while he was role-playing against an imaginary opponent in a prototype of a fantasy adventure that could rock the industry, Eve investigates. Security logs show no one entered Minnock's building around the time of his murder, presenting a futuristic variation on the classic locked-room mystery. Aided by her husband, Roarke, who was a potential business rival of the victim, Dallas focuses on who would benefit from Minnock's death. Robb is the pseudonym of romantic suspense author Nora Roberts. (Feb.)

Even though Fantastical was still in the testing phase, Bart Minnock was certain the virtual-reality game would murder the competition. Instead, Bart is the one found dead. Now Lieutenant Eve Dallas has to come up with a plausible theory as to how someone could bypass the foolproof security in the millionaire’s holo-room and decapitate him. The fact that the popular gaming guru doesn’t seem to have any enemies isn’t making Eve’s job any easier, but the more time Eve spends investigating the case, the more evidence she finds that several people may have had a reason for wanting Bart out of the way. Now, with a little hands-on training from her husband, Roarke, a computer-gaming expert, Eve sets out to write a program for catching a clever killer. In the thirtieth addition to her best-selling Eve Dallas series, Robb successfully mixes a classic locked-room murder with plenty of cutting-edge twenty-first-century technology, and the end result is an ingenious tale of crime that delivers plenty of Robb’s patented dangerous chills and passionate thrills --John Charles --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

This book took the techno to a new level. A gamer is found decapitated in a locked room, how Eve solves this mystery is more fun than is sounds like. As others have mentioned friendship is a real theme in this book. Not only does Eve explore her friendship with Peabody and Nadine, but we see what sort of problems freindly rivalries can cause.
Robb is moving this series along, and I am completely digging it. No longer do we need five page sex scenes between Eve and Roarke. They lvoe each other, we get it, move the story along. Well, Robb seemed to listen and is now giving the characters more depth and exploration than in earlier books. Something this fan appreciates.
I don't want to give too much away, as the case is just a whole lot of crazy fun, but this is certainly a book to check out if you like the series, or even if you are just looking for something new to read.
I enjoy Eve and Roark jousting and bickering then smoothing it over and coming out stronger.
When you finish, you will want to read them all from the start because they are all that good!
Waiting for the next one!
