This is the second book I have read in as many weeks, which show the horrors that can be done with modern Technology. As in Endurance, Afraid and Trapped the horror is extreme, but unlike these books, we get a good look at the characters in this one. In parts this is a police procedural and the characters are fleshed out much better than any other Konrath I have read. I particularly liked the main character who is a detective with a bad credit rating. His girlfriend is not real understanding of the time he must spend at his job, and they have decisions to make about their relationship and their careers.
THE CHOICES YOU MAKE, NOT THE CONDITIONS YOU WERE BORN WITH
There are actually some deep thoughtful situations discussed, including Intersex. Konrath also gets a little political about drugs and law enforcement.
REMOVE THE COCK, REMOVE THE SIN
Like most books by Konrath, this is full of sex. This one is especially brutal, including the mutilation of male and female genitals. I found some of this hard to stomach and it may be too much for some readers.
I really liked the narrator.

the narrator's voice was absolutely horrible. I couldn't even make myself listen past the first chapter, and the voices that he did were absolutely pathetic. His attempt at speaking like a woman was just embarrassing, and honestly, an insult. I will never get to know how great this story might have been because of this narrator.

went out on a limb on this one buying it a bit blind. I was pleasantly surprised to find it quite enjoyed this book. got my fair share of shudders and goosebumps (near the start in particular) and found it quite a nice balance of story, violence, gore and plot. love the modern theme to the book as well (other then the Web cam girls but I don't wanna give anything away). was very refreshing. the reading I found a bit odd at first with the sound effects for phone calls and such but soon got use it it and came to enjoy them. very good book and well read!
