Can a group of true-crime addicts take on the police to catch a serial killer?
Kiss the girls
A young woman is found dead in her bedroom surrounded by rose petals - the latest victim of 'The Lover'. Struggling under the weight of an internal investigation, DI Dominic Bell is no closer to discovering the identity of the killer, and time is running out.
And make them die....
As the murders escalate, Clementine Starke joins an online true-crime group determined to take justice in their own hands - to catch the killer before the police. Hiding a dark secret, she takes greater risks to find new evidence and infiltrate the group. As Starke and Bell get closer to cracking the case, neither of them realises they're being watched. The killer is closer to them than they think, and he has his next victim - Clementine - firmly in his sights.

I really liked the premise of Joe-public trying to solve the crime before the police did. For the most part the two investigations run side by side, then they merge into a single strand and pieces begin to slot into place.

interesting take on the detective novel
Interesting take on the detective story, where an on-line group of vigilantes decide to take on the police to solve the crimes of The Lover before they do. The police (Bell) have no idea who is killing women and leaving roses at the crime scene (hence The Lover). So.. this group of on-line people decide that they will give it a go. They are all given tasks to prove that they belong in this "detective' group.
Clementine (Stark) goes beyond her brief to get pictures of the crime scene and "accidentally" hooks up with Bell- the cop in charge. They don't realise that they are in the sights of the killer.
We also find that she has a big secret that she is worried may come out.
