      Late Autumn Supporter Giveaway   11/27/2020

      I know that winter is well on the way, but I'm sneaking the autumn giveaway in here, right at the end of the season...     I thought this giveaway seemed particularly appropriate for this year: Dear Reader: The Comfort and Joy of Books by Cathy Rentzenbrink.  I'm sure some of you will have heard of this book. It came out in September and has had brilliant reviews. It's been described as a love letter to reading and I think all of us have truly appreciated 'the comfort and joy of books' this year.  It is also a really beautiful hardback. Please excuse my picture-taking skills, it's really hard to get a good picture of something that's shiny!   As always, patreon supporters will be automatically entered into the draw. If you're not a supporter but you'd like to join our patreon you can do so here:  bookclubforum.co.uk is creating a book community | Patreon

Book where the killer decides based on a crowd or the internet if, who or how he kills?

Recommended Posts

I'm basically asking if there is any fiction (probably thriller or science fiction) where a murderer decides based on some kind of vote or poll who he kills, or they can suggest victims etc. I remember seeing a movie where the killer had a website the police could not take down, the first victim was an animal. It doesn't have to be the public making a choice between two victims, fiction where the killer poses a yes or no choice is also an answer (not to the victim, of course). If you know of any fiction with a theme like this, please answer this question! It would be a tremendous help.

I remember the film but I can't remember what it's called! Sorry, I will have a think.

This isn't it, and I haven't read it, but Velocity by Dean Koontz has a storyline where someone has to choose who dies next - he gets a choice of two victims each time.

 

I remember reading the synopsis when it came out and thinking it sounded an interesting premise - it sounds similar to what you're looking for.

I feel so stupid right now, because I actually read that book. I really liked it! But it's not really about the crowd or the internet. Any more?

I actually also saw a movie called Untraceable. But I am looking for more, especially books.

Sounds interesting. One of the Law & Order franchise, probably SVU, had an episode like that a few years ago.

Interesting! Does anyone know which episode? I'd love to see it.

Hi, I read a book called Random recently by Craig Robertson where he seemingly chooses his victims at random - for example sitting on a bus he counts the number of passengers getting on or off & when he hits a certain number that's the person he kills.

I agree, "random" by craig robertson was pretty good. I don't know of any books where the killer decides based on an author. I forgot what the movie was that I saw a couple years ago where people voted to kill or not kill the victim.
