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.

Critic Reviews

"The tension simply keeps rising and rising.... Brilliant." (Booksmonthly.co.uk)

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)
"An ingenious tale of stalking and its twisted repercussions. Took me in a very different direction from the one I'd been expecting." (Alex Marwood)

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.

Explicit graphic violence. A mess of a book.

I’ve gotten books by these creative authors before and enjoyed them. This one, however, drags on and on. I got to the point where I didn’t care about how it ended and skipped chapters. Warning: Graphic violence parts were too much for me. I fast-forwarded through those. The story was so convoluted, ridiculous and slow. Happy I didn’t waste a credit.

Could not stop listening

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was very gripping, and i liked Amy and Rebecca , so I cared what happened to them. Interesting plot twist although not completely a surprise. The narration is excellent, and the storyline is a riveting, even if some parts are cringe worthy
