4.0 out of 5 stars Dungeons and Dragons it ain't
The only book I can think of off-hand which features role-play gaming in any way, this is also an excellent mystery thriller, and an excellent tale of a family in conflict.

The story was good and the characters were interesting. It can be described as a thriller, and it is fast-paced. I liked the parallel stories of the role-playing game and real life, although I'd have liked the role-playing game to have become a bit more sinister to make it more exciting.
