Publisher Description

Meet Edinburgh Detective Inspector Liz Kavanaugh, head of the Innovative Crimes Investigation Unit, otherwise known as the Rule 34 Squad. They monitor the Internet for potential criminal activity, analyzing trends in the extreme fringes of explicit content. And occasionally, even more disturbing patterns arise…

Three ex-cons have been murdered in Germany, Italy, and Scotland. The only things they had in common were arrests for spamming—and a taste for unorthodox entertainment. As the first officer on the scene of the most recent death, Liz finds herself sucked into an international investigation that isn’t so much asking who the killer is, but what—and if she doesn't find the answer soon, the homicides could go viral.

The End

I really enjoyed this book, however the was left very much up in the air. Wonder if there will be more. Certainly there has be to an end.

Took a little while to get into it, but then couldnt put down

And the cover illustration is completely unrelated to the story. Second person narrative was a bit weird at first but got used to it by the end.

As Don says...

I couldn't finish it. Got boring, hard to follow and I am a pretty bright person so the average reader will quit a lot sooner. Too bad since I Look forward to all his books and have laughed thru man of them.

The biggest challenge was following the bad grammar as he switched perspectives, not as bad as Banks' Feersum Endjinn (bad spelling intended, can't remember how Banks spelled it phonetically) but it will slow you down.
