    A dare on social media leads to a 13-year-old girl's murder. Attempting to impress an online daredevil group, the girl sneaked out of her Dublin-suburb home in the middle of the night to photograph herself spraying graffiti on an abandoned home. Elliot brilliantly captures the need for belonging that leads to the girl's final act. Then investigative reporter Amanda Bowe, acting out of revenge over a botched job interview, targets the man who didn't hire her, a successful music journalist who happens to be the girl's uncle, as a suspect in the crime. The subsequent media coverage jumps on this bogus lead and focuses on the uncle, with whom the girl did have a close relationship. Elliot, a former journalist in Ireland herself, is expert at showing how pack journalism can hound its victims. Six years after the murder, Amanda is a successful journalist, the uncle has been vindicated, and a new revenge cycle starts. Intriguing from start to finish, with meaty characters and unrelenting suspense. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
