Publisher's Summary

Dream Park, the ultimate in amusement parks, was about to embark on the greatest game ever: the California Voodoo Game. Across the world bets were being placed; fortunes and reputations hung in the balance. Gaming careers would be made - or destroyed. And the most advanced software package ever invented was going to be tested.

But one of the players was a murderer - and worse. Only Alex Griffin, head of Dream Park Security, and Game Master Tony McWhirter guessed the extent of the treachery tainting the Game. Somehow, they had to catch the killer - but above all, the Game must go on....

Best one yet

Really been enjoying this series but this is the best one yet. If you've just finished Book 2 and are wondering if its worth continuing, you have my assurance that it is.

Dream Park at its best.

Great voice acting. The best of the Dream Park stories. Nigel Bishop is an interesting foil for Alex Griffin.

Dungeons and Dragons meets Westworld, Awesome!

This Dreampark novel is more tech current than the previous two. Augmented Reality and AI all make appearances. MIMIC, the gargantuan quake damaged housing experiment turned truly dangerous gaming area is a memorable place. What the Game Masters created there is stark raving genius. Hero’s, villains, humor and a fun, fast pace make this tough to turn off. Grover Gardner does a superb narration job, as usual.

worth it, but not spectacular

if youve read or listened to the other Dream Park books this is a good endcap. but honestly, for me, it lacks the prestiege the other books had.

Took a while to get what the heck was going on

What the game entailed took a while to clarify. I swear I listened to the first three chapters three times to get the pieces assembled in my head. Admittedly that might be me and not the story. In any case, once it got rolling it was a pretty dang good story. I don’t usually think “this would make an awesome movie,” but this would make an awesome movie.

Not Quite As Good

The first installment was an unusual but technologically magical and the plot and story had a sort of whimsy to the violent actuality. This book however is like a tribute to how Dreampark will one up any rival and I don't feel invested or hoping for any character at all or disliking others. When the book ended I barely felt anything meaningful had happened apart from some characters who don't die but their karma is pretty harsh.

Too dry for me

I don’t know, but I just couldn’t get into it. The narrator was a little bit stale, I felt like he was reading and oil changing manual.

Dollar Store Michael Crichton

So if you took a Michael Crichton concept and hired someone without Crichton’s talent to write it, made it overly complicated and added too many characters you’d have this book.
