One by One by Chris Carter
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The fifth in the Carlos Garcia/Robert Hunter series, detective partners in a special homicide division in California dealing with serial killers and sadistic/psychotic murders. This is pretty horrific stuff. It starts with a gruesome murder on line where Robert Hunter has to choose between a man drowning or being burnt alive. He chooses drowning and the murder takes place with a sick twist to it. The killer then sets up a website called pickadeath.com. A connection between the victims is almost impossible to find. This is very much not for the faint-hearted.

Synopsis

One by One 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 anyone can cast the deciding vote.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
