"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.
I wonder where Chris carter gets his inspiration from.
So compelled to keep listening. Love the narrator
I found this book really interesting. I was quite shocked by the storyline but I couldn’t stop listening.
I recommend if someone was to listen to Chris carter. Start at the beginning of the series. Follow the characters. Although the storylines are different there is sometimes a continuation from previous books.
Definitely not for the faint hearted. Strong stomach recommended
Fabulous. Fabulous. Fabulous
I'm binge listening through the Hunter and Garcia series at the moment. Felt the storyline was a bit too similar to other books in the series. Became a tad bit predictable. The story also seemed a bit too far-fetched in a ridiculous sort of way. However it wasnt bad enough for me to abort the read, I just wasn't as entertained as much as I'd been reading Carters other work. I will no doubt look forward to the next book in the collection.
Chris Carter and Thomas Judd have done it again and delivered another fantastic story!
Chris has an imagination for the darkest murder that simply blows you away and Thomas has an amazing way of really bringing the characters to life.
I just went to buy the next book in the series and realised we've lost Thomas as a narrator. That's sad as he really bought Robert Hunter to life and the new narrator just doesn't sound right!
Enjoyed the story very much which probably makes me a sick ..... Narrator made the book come alive, one of my favourite narrators .. keep the books comming
I like the performance and the plot is complicated enough to keep me intereted, but there are too many details for me (which is typical of Carter) and I lose interest from time to time. It reminds me one of my professors. I really tried to do my best to listen to him, but he kept making digressions and my concentration just kept weakening. Same here. At times I had to listen to a Chapter twice because I missed an important turn, bored by the numbers "stretch 587, crash589" or by gore descriptions. Also,Robert Hunter is much too flawless for my liking...I don't believe he is for real...
