The Killer Net by Matthew W Grant

Ten little girls sat at their computers 
Wondering who they’d find on line 
One entered a chat room with a killer 
And then there were nine. . . 

On the eve of the new millennium, thousands of people logged on to the Internet for the first time every day. Some were looking for love. Some were looking for victims. 

In The Killer Net, courageous police department secretary, Jennifer Warren, matches wits against a genius who lures women in under the pretense of looking for a relationship. He boldly taunts the police with e-mail poems about their murders sent from the crime scenes. The cops continue to arrive only to discover another dead body and no way to find a killer who has disappeared without a trace.

Hey! Here's my review.

Set in 1999 when the internet was really taking off and online dating was becoming popular, a killer is using the internet to select his prey. There are lots of short chapters giving insight into the killers and the victims minds. I thought the plot was fairly predictable and that I had it all figures out halfway through, then the twists started. I kept changing my mind over who I thought the killer was and never knew until the end. The suspense built through out the book and I found myself quite involved by the end.

I listened to the audiobook edition of this book, which I received free in exchange for an honest review. The narrator was fabulous and really made the book for me. She put so much emotion into the characters and used a few special effects which added to the story.
