I really enjoyed this book and was torn between wanting to see the end as well as trying to make it last longer.
In some reviews, I have read that this is a romance. This is not true. It is a true THRILLER! It is based in Minneapolis, and is about a serial killer and the detectives who are in pursuit of him. There are twists and turns as you would expect. In fact there are two killers who both want to humiliate the detectives, known as the Hat Squad, because of the fedoras they wear as a badge of honour.
The killers hunting ground is a virtual reality game called Shadowland, where people go who want anonymity. A student is running a study of the impact of the game as therapy for people who struggle in real life to socialise with others.
The killer is sourcing his victims from this online environment, and is constantly one step ahead of the Hat Squad. The second killer is simply looking for revenge for the death of his brother, and he helps to muddy the water.
I would really recommend this book, especially those who enjoy the genre. The characters are well developed, the story line is solid and enjoyable.
