Publisher's Summary

The daughter of legendary author James Lee Burke, Alafair Burke has built a considerable reputation for crafting taut mysteries herself. With 212, this former deputy district attorney pens a haunting tale investigating the terrifying realities of Internet anonymity.
When a student is murdered following a series of threatening messages posted on a college gossip site, NYPD detectives Ellie Hatcher and J. J. Rogan are assigned the case. As they dig deeper, however, they discover the victim was only one of many—and the killer isn’t finished.

Critic Reviews

"Burke expertly weaves real-life headlines into her plot—particularly the Craig's List Killer and the slew of recent political scandals—without ever sacrificing originality." ( Publisher's Weekly)

I don't get it

I got this book because the reviews were so glowing. After listening to it I have to wonder if I'm listening to the same book everyone else did.
The writer is just plain awful in my opinion. I read series where the author reviews things that happened in previous books that intersect with the current book, but this author does this for things that happened in previous chapters. I'm not so dense that I can't remember what happened two chapters ago.
The rest was so forgettable that 3 weeks after listening to it I can't even tell you what the book was about. I just remember being bored and thinking about what I wanted to listen to next that would keep me entertained.

Good twist at the end.......But

Do not misunderstand I liked the story and it has an unexpected twist at the end, it just took to long to get there. It could have been about one hour shorter if the author had moved things along between the murders a little faster.
