This is an interesting compilation of crimes committed by using the internet, such as via Facebook and Craigslist.

Most of us who use the internet on a daily basis take it very much for granted. We seem to forget that we are sharing private information on a public forum.

We've heard about girls (and boys) being targeted by predators on Facebook and people being murdered when they respond to a Craigslist ad. Still we feel safe sitting in front of our computers and other electronic devices.

The cases cited in this book should be a wake-up call to remind us to be aware and be vigilant. Pay attention to what information you're sharing with the big bad world.

A definite must-read for fans of true crime.
Slate and Parker have presented a well rounded view, of both the murderer and the victim, by discussing their lives and detailing where things started (and continued) to go awry. How victims were selected or in some instances what triggered the murderer to act.
A very enjoyable read, it is very clear that you are reading about reality- minus the feeling of reading a text book! The authors have written the book in such a way as the facts of the crime speak for themselves and it is easy to imagine how these massively common happenings could cause you to be the victim.
Each chapter focuses on a different murderer which allows you to keep dipping in and out when you find a spare few minutes- although you won't want to put it down!!

Once upon a time, online predators were an unusual phenomena. However, these days they seem to be more common all around the world.
The stories recounted in this book bring to light the fact that distance is not a barrier where online predators are concerned. It is scary to note that everyday social media is being used to lure people to their deaths etc. The authors explain briefly certain types of killers that existed before the internet age, for example the lonely heart killers who used `want ads' to locate their victims etc.
The story of Armin Meiwes is particularly disturbing, I could not read all the gory details. It is difficult to believe that such acts do actually take place and that the internet has been used to initiate them. It is unimaginable to think that the internet has been used to order murder victims, human flesh, and instigate phishing, etc
A lot of the stories told in this book make it very clear that online safety measures should always be taken by people. It is an added bonus that this book discusses some of these safety measures that can be put in place. Some key ones are, educating people about the dangers that abound, monitoring what children are viewing online, choosing kid safe search engines etc.
Although this book discusses many awful cases , it also highlights many ways in which social media has been used by police to apprehend criminals.
This book is worth reading and I highly recommend it.

Wow and to think that I felt safe on the internet! Internet crimes are becoming huge now with the rise of social media. You never know where they next predator is or if they are even on your own friends list. This book brought to light the type of crimes that occur on the internet. Internet killers are out there and you have to be careful about what you are posting online. This book talks about internet crimes around the globe. I think the best part about this book is that it lets you get inside the minds of these individuals. I never understood why people killed over the internet or in general, but this book takes you inside the minds of these sick killers. I would say that this is the perfect book for anyone who likes crimes. It's a great read and it's well-written. I learned a lot by reading it. I would recommend it.

You would never invite a serial killer into your home would you ?

Well just as the cyber criminals have made full use of the internet to scam you out of thosands of whatever currency you use so has the modern day serial killer

RJ Parker and JJ Slate write about a large number of these low life killers detailing the they have used all types of social media such as craigslist to gain your trust and entry to your home.

Even if your not a great fan of true crime you should take the time to read this book, be warned it does go into graphic, but it is a warning that you should listen to
