Publisher's Summary

Snap. Upload. Ruin a reputation.

In this pause-resisting short story from international bestselling author Jeffery Deaver, senior detective Jon Avery inherits a deeply troubling case. At an off-campus party, university professor Rose Taylor is drugged, undressed, and photographed on a burner phone. In seconds her humiliation is uploaded, and millions of JPEGs are zipping like immortal wasps through the internet. But why would someone target her? She has no vengeful exes or rival academics, no stalkers or unhinged students. Jon Avery, the sharpest, most experienced investigator in the sheriff’s office, is determined to find out who’s behind this horrific invasion of privacy. But soon he runs into a wall of silence at Preston College - an academic mecca whose reputation one doesn’t dare tarnish. The message is clear: if he pursues the case, he’ll pay for it.

A detective who didn’t give up

A novella that shows just how modern technology can be damaging to one’s life. It was quick and well done. Narration was absolutely perfect. I am on the lookout for more books with narrator Scott Merriman. Recommended.

Unexpected and satisfying

It seemed like it should be a pretty straightforward story. There were some twists that were unexpected. The ending was something I never thought of.

Not for me

Not a bad little story but I did not care for presentation. The attempt at ‘acting was so distracting I couldn’t concentrate on story.

this narrator's voice us BORING -

the story might be great if it were read by someone else. I think the narrator needs extra bucks because this cannot possibly be a career that he could make good money doing. errg I wasted my money on this butt-nugget. The reading was so terrible that I cannot tell you what it was about. I love Jeffrey Deaver but..... not like this.

Jeffrey Deaver at his delightful best

Here is another policing story with all the twists & trns and assorted characters very relevant University students & familiar flaws in occasional Staff Members and/ misfit students... This is an notable read BUT far too short having expected one of the authors full length Policing Mysteries!
