Publisher's Summary

Detective Hannah Shor is desperate to prove her worth to her superiors - and herself. When a middle-aged man is found stabbed to death in his apartment, she might just get her chance. But then she finds that the deceased was a vile Internet troll, sexually harassing women on Twitter. Hannah starts wondering if she really wants to catch his killer.

And the night is far from over. Only several hours later, a young woman is strangled to death. Detective Jacob Cooper discovers that the victim was lost in her own virtual world - a recluse who spent all day sucked into a violent online role-playing game. To find the murderer, Jacob might have to step into the game.

Now Hannah will have to push aside her qualms, and Jacob will have to find a way to overcome his technophobia if they want to crack the cases. Their search will take them into the seedier parts of the Internet and uncover shocking secrets as they attempt to expose a killer.

mediocre

not as thrilling as the first still I liked that each character appear to have somewhat of a flaw which made the story a bit more interesting

Not terribly interesting or exciting

I expected more after the first book was so good. This was not a great story.

Always a double treat with Mike Omer!

Mike Omer’s stories have strong characters and wonderful suspense. A surprise is the small bits of humour peppered through. Not enough to detract from the drama, but enough to make you smile and enjoy the storyline and characters even more. He’s one of my new favourites.

Excellent police procedural, but...

...Deadly Web is not as good as Spider's Web or Web of Fear, the other two books in the series. Despite the excellent story I was disappointed because it does not justify 5 stars which the other two books in the series earn. Narrator Eric Martin, who I had not listened to before this series, is superb.
