Death in 280 characters
Desperate to get her journalism career started, Freddie Venton takes a reckless chance when a face from her past leads to a juicy scoop.
Learning her old friend Nasreen Cudmore is a police officer, Freddie impersonates a forensics officer and visits Nasreen’s crime scene, where a man’s body lies slumped over his computer. The police are unfamiliar with social media, and it’s Freddie who realizes the victim was a troll and finds @Apollyon: a Twitter account whose profile picture shows the dead body and the missing murder weapon.
The “Hashtag Murderer” posts cryptic clues online, pointing to the next target—taunting the police, enthralling the press and the public. But when @Apollyon follows her, Freddie’s afraid she might be next.
