Publisher's Summary

"I need your help, Detective. Fire or water?"

Detective Robert Hunter of the LAPD's Homicide Special Section receives an anonymous call asking him to go to a specific web address - a private broadcast. Hunter logs on, and a show devised for his eyes only immediately begins.

But the caller doesn't want Detective Hunter to just watch; he wants him to participate, and refusal is simply not an option. Forced to make a sickening choice, Hunter must sit and watch as an unidentified victim is tortured and murdered live over the Internet.

The LAPD, together with the FBI, use everything at their disposal to electronically trace the transmission down, but this killer is no amateur, and he has covered his tracks from start to finish. And before Hunter and his partner, Garcia, are even able to get their investigation going, Hunter receives a new phone call. A new website address. A new victim. But this time the killer has upgraded his game into a live murder reality show where anyone can cast the deciding vote.

High on graphic killings. Low on quality storyline

Having listened to several of the Chris Carter novels with audible I have always enjoyed the experience. The narrator has been solid with the gravity required to portray the serious Detective Hunter. And with minor inflection he has managed to give life to the other character too. The plot lines have been dense and complex and gratifyingly dark. Unfortunately in this book I found it falls flat on every level. Save for the ingenious ways to kill people, It lacks invention in basic story development and left holes in plot wide enough to drive a truck through. Characters were introduced, back stories laid out but with no further development or conclusion. The narrator was a solid Hunter as usual but lacked anything to liven up the others. It was hard to connect with the supporting cast of characters. But most of all this was a tepid and lacklustre attempt at an investigation of a crime that clearly had gravity, present day relevance and emotional context. Overall very very disappointing. Thankfully I’ve also read some of Carters later novels so I know he hasn’t lost his touch entirely this early in the series and does return to form. I haven’t totally given up on him, but this was a close call. Maybe I just won’t listen but read the books myself next time. That might help

Unputdownable!

Storyline is simple and not full of characters that listener have to remember. It's easy to follow, but still being thrilling, especially with those parts when the murders happen. Following how the victims die is rather cruesome. The voice actor is great in this, managing to act all the characters well. The overall ending was just OK, rather than something shocking or utterly surprising. The whole story how everything started in the first place and why the murders began is probably the main idea of all. Not bad, but not amazing either.

i still detest the captain, ruins every scene

This series is great, but on audio it is hard to filter out every utterance of the Captain. She's soooooo annoying.

Hunter or hunted?

Another exciting story based in Los Angeles Special Homicide Unit where the perpetrator designs ingenious methods of murder and asks the public to vote on method of execution. I hope there really aren't people like that in this world!

Utterly captivating

As usual Chris Carter delivers. Edge of your seat stuff, gruesome yet he allows the reader/listener to use just enough of their own imagination to make it scarily real and not far fetched. I was left with an adrenaline rush. Fabulous author.
