In this story based on true events, author Nelson Rodriguez explores the effects of an online game called Mobster on its players. Rodriguez examines how people interact with others when they are involved-or even obsessed-with online gaming, delving into the relationships that are built through the game-sometimes with others who live a completely different part of the world For Sam, the game Mobster became an extremely personal and real experience; he began acting out his crimes in real life, without giving any thought to the law or the lines that he was crossing. To "win," he did everything in his power, regardless of the consequence-making bribes and intimidating anyone he perceived was in his way. But would he take to ultimate step and actually kill someone? Mark was committed to his job as a police officer, and so he never imagined that one day he would have to engage in the very acts that he had sworn to fight. It seemed that destiny had a different path for him-a life he never imagined for himself. Despite their strong personal relationships, once these players get caught up in the game, all that matters to them is the game-and everything they cared about before is in jeopardy.
