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.

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.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
