Publisher's Summary

He's posted on your wall. He's following you on Twitter. He knows where you are right now....

When Amy receives an email from her older sister, Becky, announcing that she's off travelling and 'don't try to find me', she is worried. Becky would never do such a thing on a whim.

Amy - who is recovering from an abusive relationship that has left her terrified of love - soon finds that Becky had started using online dating sites. Aided by Becky's neighbour, Gary, Amy sets about tracking down the men her sister had dated, following a trail that leads her into the darkly seductive world of Internet hook-ups. But Amy is unaware that a sadistic killer is watching - a killer who's been using the Internet to stalk, torture and kill.

Now he's got something very special planned for Amy, and she is about to find out that romance really is dead.

Praise for Voss & Edwards:
"I was gripped all the way - the ending is terrific." (Peter James)
"A very clever, very pacy story that kept me guessing right to the end." (Elizabeth Haynes)

I Wanted to Love It, but was Disappointed

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I was looking forward to the release of this book as a fan of The Voss/Edwards team. I was a little disappointed. The story was a little contrived and a little bit slow. I felt like the authors took a few dating websites, changed the name, and plugged in characters to make a marginally engaging thriller that never really grabbed me. By the end, I was ready to be done. I would recommend Kill Cupid and Venus Trap over this one.

If you’ve listened to books by Mark Edwards and Louise Voss before, how does this one compare?

Not as good by a long shot.

What does Jessica Ball and Ben Elliot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration was great and added to the overall feeling.

Did Forward Slash inspire you to do anything?

Inspired me to finish and pick up a better Edwards/Voss book!

Any additional comments?

The moving parts were just too plodding. There wasn't enough innovation here; the authors are talented and could have done better with the components they were working with. The characters were blah. The main characters, sisters Amy and Beth were stereotyped and I couldn't get invested in their plights. Overall, not the authors' best.

Spoilt by the convoluted ending.

Loved it right up until the last few chapters when the villains were unmasked.... and then it all went pear shaped. I know it's fiction but the ending is so far fetched it's unreal.

Good read

This book has all of the suspense that I've come to expect from Edwards and Voss. They excellently weave together their characters individual narratives, and keep you guessing all the way. You initially start feeling sympathy for a character and this gets slowly eroded by the twists and turns in the plot. Edward and Voss do have a tendency for the unrealistic and depending on your tastes that can be a positive or a negative. I enjoyed this book - it's very easy to listen to and to follow. The narrator portrayed the characters well although her accents, at times, were quite laughable.

Gruesome villains!

Which character – as performed by Jessica Ball and Ben Elliot – was your favourite?

She voiced all of the characters extremely well. Only lost a star due to incorrect emphasis occasionally.

Any additional comments?

The main villain in this story did some very gruesome things. However, the descriptions of these were not over-egged. Parts of the book are nasty, but not gratuitously so. There was a point when it seemed that all men who weren't in the Police force were dangerous, but it was so well written and had me on the edge of my seat throughout, that this was forgivable.

Not for the faint hearted

This book is dark and at time quite graphic. Really good story but some parts are disturbing.

A great read!

This was a great book.

The plot was good with several twists and turns and a surprising end which was a bit of a twist!

Really enjoyable and I'm happy to have discovered this writing duo.
