A series of murders is being modeled after the gruesome deaths depicted in a popular video game. Things move quickly as law enforcement and the video game's creators--who harbor a few secrets of their own--work together to predict where the killers will strike next. The usually capable Buck Schirner is somewhat miscast as narrator. His friendly drawl doesn't mesh with this novel's fast pace and up-to-the-minute techno-jargon. While his warm voice doesn't ruin the production, one wonders why a narrator with an edgier style wasn't chosen. J.P.M.
