Ruby Day is a young vlogger, a rising star of YouTube, and a
wholesome role-model to millions of teenage girls. And she
is missing. Detective Inspector Kate Riley, the head of a
new high-powered team of detectives, and Detective
Superintendent Zain Harris, the newest member of the team
and a poster boy for multiracial policing, are brought in
for what they expect to be a routine runaway. Then a video
of a wild-eyed Ruby running through the woods and begging
for her life is posted online. Amid mounting hysteria and
heightened media coverage calling for Ruby’s safe return,
Riley and Harris must decode the dark secrets of this
seemingly squeaky-clean internet darling. Their hunt leads
them to a smug ex-boyfriend who hungers for online fame of
his own, a culture of online cyber bullying by anonymous
thugs, and a corporation of ruthless advertisers who exploit
online celebrities for their network of eager consumers. It
becomes increasingly clear that the case is more complicated
and nightmarish than Riley and Harris could have imagined.
And the videos keep coming . . .
This debut novel is a slick, contemporary police procedural
that explores the dichotomy of public life and one lived
online. For fans of Megan Abbot and Kimberly McCreight, Cut
to the Bone provides a harrowing glimpse into the
friendships, ambitions, and secrets of the internet generation.
