One by One : A Brilliant Serial Killer Thriller, Featuring the Unstoppable Robert Hunter Paperback
by Chris Carter
'I need your help, Detective. Fire or water?' Detective Robert Hunter of the LAPD's Homicide Special Section receives an anonymous call asking him to go to a specific web address - a private broadcast.
Hunter logs on and a show devised for his eyes only immediately begins.
But the caller doesn't want Detective Hunter to just watch, he wants him to participate, and refusal is simply not an option.
Forced to make a sickening choice, Hunter must sit and watch as an unidentified victim is tortured and murdered live over the Internet.
The LAPD, together with the FBI, use everything at their disposal to electronically trace the transmission down, but this killer is no amateur, and he has covered his tracks from start to finish. And before Hunter and his partner Garcia are even able to get their investigation going, Hunter receives a new phone call.
A new website address. A new victim. But this time the killer has upgraded his game into a live murder reality show, where anyonecan cast the deciding vote.

Review by samarnold1975
I consider myself a bit on an expert when it comes to anything horror. I love horror films and devour horror books. However, there were times in this book where I had to put it down and walk away. Sold as a detective novel this is so much more. The descriptions of the horror that befalls the victims in this book leaves you having to move away and think of something else. This is how good the writing is. I have always been a fan of this author and have followed his novels throughout. This one does not disappoint in anyway.The violence is just as good as previous novels. The familiar lovable characters of Hunter and Garcia are back as well as a new supporting characters being introduced. I have to say there are a few of the characters that I hope will make an appearance in later novels. The story is quick flowing and keeps you guessing throughout. I never guessed the twist and I defy anyone to say they did. This can be read as a stand alone or as part of the series. This is a thoroughly amazing horror, detective novel. I can't wait to read the next.
