"Riveting and frightening ... a powerful reminder that the online world is a dangerous place where predators are always on the hunt for prey—and any one of us could be a victim."
NYT bestselling author, Last to Die
This new book by a top cybercrime expert and victims' advocate explores horrific real-life crimes with roots in cyberspace. Author J. A. Hitchcock (Net Crimes & Misdemeanors) is celebrated for her work to pass tough cybercrime legislation, train law enforcement personnel, and help victims fight back. In True Crime Online, she journeys into the darkest recesses of the internet to document the most depraved criminals imaginable, from bullies and stalkers to scam artists, sexual predators, and serial killers.
True Crime Online is a must-read for true crime aficionados and fans of such television fare as 48 Hours Mystery, Forensic Files, and the Investigation Discovery channel. You'll never think about your online "friends" the same way again.
"Frightening, eye-opening ... a must-read for parents of children innocently surfing the net and for anyone considering an online date."
