A dark and gripping thriller.
One missing girl. Two million suspects.
Ruby is a vlogger, a rising star of YouTube and a heroine to millions of teenage girls. And she's missing.... But she's an adult - nothing to worry about, surely. Until the video's uploaded...Ruby, in the dirt, pleading for her life.
Enter Detective Inspector Kate Riley: the Met's rising star and the head of a new team of investigators with the best resources money can buy. Among them Detective Sergeant Zain Harris, the poster boy for multiracial policing. But can Kate wholly trust him? And, more importantly, can she trust herself around him?
As hysteria builds amongst the press and Ruby's millions of fans, Kate and her team are under pressure to get results, and fast, but as they soon discover, the world of YouTube vloggers and social media is much darker than anyone could have imagined.

This book was excellent, the story was unique and very unpredictable and the subject matter is very current. The character development is paced and detailed well. You think this story is going one way and not only does it veer onto a different path, it successfully branches out to multiple and relevant facets that are seamlessly brought back together not only at the end but at certain points in the book -- which is very difficult to do in a novel. I was in a lull of crime novels and couldn't find another series or stand alone book to get into and this just renewed my crime novel fervor. Highly recommend this book.
"5***** Excellent book"
Finally a relatable 21st century crime thriller, looking forward to the next one. Brilliant debut novel by Alex Caan. Would definitely recommend.
