Is it violence if it's virtual? The outspoken women targeted by the increasingly cruel Internet trolls and bullies would probably say so. For some of them, the torrents of bile and vicious threats prove too much. They begin to silence themselves in a series of high-profile suicides. Or do they? Tony Hill isn't convinced. But he's the only one. Former cop Carol Jordan is too busy messing up her life to care. Until she gets an unexpected second chance. Now it's game on, and the stakes have never been higher.

Unlike the other 4 readers I found this book a complete bore. I've been reading Val McDermid for years and can't believe the same writer of Darker Domain, The Grave Tattoo, Mutiny on the Bounty, etc. could also put out this drivel. I was so excited when I first started reading it but several hundred pages in, it wasn't going anywhere. And Tony Hill and Carol Jordan? who cares about their relationship (or lack of) anymore. It's all old hat. Too much internet stuff and the murders and reasons for them too far fetched. It was too obvious who leaked Carol's DWI to the news media so no mystery there. I have to think that Ms McDermid is writing to satisfy some readers but also to making sure her retirement (when it comes) is secure.

A very good read looking forward to more ebooks available by Val McDermid!

Love her writing but technical facts not always accurate. Key to Daisy Morton's death is stated that Natural Gas is heavier than air where as it is actually 40% lighter.

I really enjoyed this novel, Val McDermid has never disappointed me. There are a couple of places where credulity is stretched, but what the heck, it`s fiction, and the overall story is very well told. An interesting, modern plot.

Grabs you from the first page, couldn't put it down! Have read the rest of the series and this one surpassed the others, in my opinion!

It has been a long wait but worth it. Here's hoping ITV have it in mind for another TV series continuing 'Wire in the Blood'.
