The murder: At a high-security military complex in Colorado, a computer War Game ends with the brutal death of a programmer. The suspects: The seven other Gamers, all of whom have their own motives. The mystery: The victim was murdered in a sealed room that was impossible to enter or leave. Now, a homocide cop and a CIA analyst follow a trail of clues through a maze of international intrigue and treachery, and learn that one murder was only the beginning... Like getting to wear a top security badge and being admitted into fascinating places you'd never otherwise get to go. -- Nancy Pickard, author of The Blue Corn Murders.
