This suspense-filled noir is told completely in the form of the protagonist's weblog. L.G. Fickel, a young literary editor by day, spends her nights hosting a playful blog devoted to pulp fiction. Onenight, however, she posts that she's just witnessed a train suicide, an event that changes her own life to a noirish tale of psychological tension that borders on paranoia as the police discover connections between Fickel and the dead man that she can't explain. Fickel's blog fans are her support system, an unruly Greek chorus of commenters,addicted to Fickel's troubles as every night she pours out the increasingly strange story of her life as a murder suspect. This novel comes about as close as any to breaking down the "third wall" between reader and novel as the reader begins to realize that he's just another voyeur, lurking on Fickel's blog and relishing her growing desperation.
