"A cool thriller with well-blended elements of crime, suspense, and gaming culture." - Kirkus Reviews

The real terror begins when the game is over.
Parker Reid is the FBI's top profiler, and he's been dispatched to hunt another monster. A serial killer is slaughtering people in their beds. The manner in which he kills, the trophies he takes, and the way he poses the bodies indicate the killer is acting out a cruel fantasy. The murders are real, but the clues have led Parker to the computer-simulated worlds of the Metaverse.
Shea Britton is hunting a killer too. The top player in an elaborate fantasy simulation game called the Land of Might and Magic, Shea's character, Darshana, is on a quest to rid the Land of an evil player known only as The Gray Warrior, who is killing the game's best players.
What neither of them know is they are hunting the same person, and soon the game will become a lot more real for Shea.
