Susanne O'Learyabout this book: Virtual Strangers is a murder mystery and romantic suspense novel about what can happen when you link up with people on the Internet. In the novel, the connections, romance, intrigues, rows and animosities spill into real life, resulting in murder. What started as an online friendship turns into something weird and eerie and even dangerous.
This novel was written by two authors who met online and experienced some of the above (minus the murder). We wanted to explore the connections people make online, how you can become strangely intimate and even fall in love with someone you have never met. And when you do meet, like the man and woman in the story, there is a strange feeling of having met before, of knowing each other intimately, even though you have never seen each other in the flesh.
This book took a year to write. The title was inspired by the classic movie, Strangers on a Train, because some of the plot is similar to that story.
I thought that this theme, of meetings online is very topical these days and I hoped that readers who have experienced the same kind of things might find it intriguing which, judging by the reviews have proved to be true. here are two:
• 'This book has it all. Humour, suspense, romance, erotic adventures, Cyberspace, interesting characters, not too many, not too few.'
• 'If you're like me, you've likely spent part of the last 24 hours on one or more internet forums. And if you've always considered this time of your day as sanctuary, don't read Virtual Strangers, it will forever change your comfort zone.'
