When did you last Google yourself? Wealthy businessman, Will Frost, gets woken in the middle of the night by an anonymous caller, asking him exactly this. When Will goes online, he finds a website has been set up in his name, showing photographs of the inside of his home, along with photographs of six houses he has never seen before. In the first of these strange houses, a gruesome murder has already taken place. Will is then told that his own family is in mortal danger. The only way he can keep them safe is to visit each of the houses on the website in person before the police discover what has happened there. Seven houses. Seven gruesome homicides. Seven chances to save his daughter's life...

Any additional comments?

I had to restart this book several times. I got distracted easily while I was listening to it. It took about an hour to finally get interested. Even then I was still having to rewind parts. This book is like a tank slow and steady

- Jill "All time fave book series is Fear Street by R.L. Stine. I have read them all...I think."

"Scare Me" didn't. No suspense, just violence

Scare Me is a dreadful story that wastes a pretty decent performance by the reader. The plot is highly contrived. The violence is needlessly graphic. There are major characters in the book who serve no purpose in the storyline. The international scope of the story is absurd since there is no hint of where the characters would acquire the resources to travel about as they do. The ending is so unsatisfying that it hints of a sequel in the works. Of course, I have absolutely no desire to read a sequel should one come out, so that's pointless too.
