SFPD has no witnesses and no suspects, but FBI Agent Abby Kane believes a dead hiker found ten miles north of the city is the key to solving those crimes.
The detective involved with the case thinks Abby might be chasing a ghost down a rabbit hole, but the more Abby digs, the more she begins to think the killer is playing a game and there’s an audience cheering him on.
This summary does not do this book justice. Yes it was thrilling and Abby did take part in a game, but it was sooo much more.
This story is told through a couple of different perspectives. You have the perspective of the game players, logging on and getting their clues, then fulfilling their tasks. Then you have Abby trying to put all of the pieces together and then getting pulled into the game herself.
This book is action packed from the first to the last page and even gives us a little hint at what’s coming up in the next book of the series. It is very intense and hard to put down once you get started. While you know that what the game players are doing is wrong, it’s a very intriguing story line and, as scary as it sounds, is something that could potentially happen in real life thanks to the world wide web. There’s so much out there that we don’t know about. Kind of creepy, to be perfectly honest.
I give Russian Hill 5 out of 5 bookmarks and will definitely keep my eye out for the other books in this series.
