The Monterey Peninsula is rocked when a killer begins to
leave roadside crosses beside local highways -- not in
memoriam, but as announcements of his intention to kill.
And to kill in particularly horrific and efficient ways:
using the personal details about the victims that they've
carelessly posted in blogs and on social networking websites.
The case lands on the desk of Kathryn Dance, the California
Bureau of Investigation's foremost kinesics -- body
language-expert. She and Deputy Michael O'Neil follow the
leads to Travis Brigham, a troubled teenager whose role in a
fatal car accident has inspired vicious attacks against him
on a popular blog, The Chilton Report.
As the investigation progresses, Travis vanishes. Using
techniques he learned as a brilliant participant in MMORPGs,
Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games, he easily
eludes his pursuers and continues to track his victims, some
of whom Kathryn is able to save, some not. Among the
obstacles Kathryn must hurdle are politicians from
Sacramento, paranoid parents and the blogger himself, James
Chilton, whose belief in the importance of blogging and the
new media threatens to derail the case and potentially
Dance's career. It is this threat that causes Dance to take
desperate and risky measures...
In signature Jeffery Deaver style, Roadside Crosses is
filled with dozens of plot twists, cliff-hangers and
heartrending personal subplots. It is also a searing look at
the accountability of blogging and life in the online world.
Roadside Crosses is the third in Deaver's bestselling
High-Tech Thriller Trilogy, along with The Blue Nowhere and
The Broken Window.

This is one I can't wait to read. Deaver gets better with each book he writes.
