212 by Alafair Burke (ARC) - Giveaway


In New York City, nights are dangerous. Days are numbered.....When NYU student Megan Gunther finds personal threats posted to a website specializing in campus gossip, she's taken aback by their menacing tone. someone knows her daily routine down to the minute and is watching her 00 but thanks to the anonymity provided by the Internet, the police tell her they can do nothing to help. Her friends are sure it's someone's idea of a joke, but when Megan is murfered in a vicious attack, NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher is convinced that the online threats are more than just empty words. As Ellie, with smooth, straight-talking partner J.J. Rogan at her side, tries to identify Megan's enemies, she begins to wonder if her murder was more than just the culmination of a cyber obsession. Through phone records, they find a link between Megan and a murdered real estate agent who was living a dangerous double-life. They also learn that the murdered real estate agent shared a secret connection to a celebrity mogul whose bodyguard was mysteriously killed a few months earlier. And when Megan's roommate suddenly disappears, they know they have to find her before another young woman dies.

I'm supposing "212" refers to the area code. I'm intrigued by the spate of new novels featuring the internet, either as a facilitator of crime or as a crime-fighting tool. This one sounds like a sure winner - hope I get to read it soon!

This sounds very interesting. It's hard to find good books that deal with the interenet as part of the plot. They either get the info all wrong or they get way too techinical.
