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.

Another winner!

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!

Usual Cater

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...
