Fantasy in Death. Was oh so good!

They were best friends, driven by one shared vision – to rule the world of virtual reality games. Cill, hard-edged and beautiful, Var and Benny, brains and business acumen, and Bart, the genius behind the idea. Their newest invention, developed to transport the player into a fantastical virtual world, is just about to be launched.
Then, suddenly, Bart is found brutally killed, defeated by their own game. Their close-knit group is torn apart. Who could have engineered a virtual death with such devastating consequences? 
Even Eve Dallas, New York City’s most cunning investigator, is hard-pressed for an answer. But as she digs deeper, peeling back layers of secrets, revenge and misplaced allegiances, she realises with growing dread the depth of the killer’s master plan. And she knows his game is far from over.

 I’m a big fan of J.D Robb’s In Death series. Fantasy in Death is the 30th book in the series and I’ve been catching up on it for the past two years so clearly I quite like it. Fantasy in Death was released in 2010 and I really liked the way it opened. The similarities between the old {our time} and the new {the time the book is set in, as the In Death series is set in the future} with the victim’s droid set to look like Princess Leia and the idea of virtual gaming, especially with the direction gaming is going in nowadays. Realising who the killer is was quite easy in Fantasy in Death compared to some of the other books in the series but I still enjoyed the overall journey Dallas, Roarke and the rest of the crew took us on. Pretty much my favourite parts of the In Death books are the connections between Dallas, Roarke, Peabody, Feeney, McNab and a whole host of other characters that make this series so likeable along with seeing how Dallas finds the killers, but I also really enjoyed the storyline of the virtual gaming and how Dallas went about solving the murder.
