The Monitor

monitorOnline, no one can hear you scream! Former University of Alberta lecturer Randy Craig is now working part-time at Edmonton’s Grant MacEwan College, and struggling to make ends meet. That is, until she takes an evening job monitoring a chat room called Babel and begins to suspect that a hired killer is lurking in cyberspace, brokering hits — and he may be operating in Edmonton.

Praise for The Monitor:

“MacDonald sustains the mystery right to the end of this exciting novel. A sequel would be most welcome.”
—Prairie Fire Review of Books

“Janice MacDonald has accomplished something no other mystery writer has done — she has managed to convey the inherent spookiness, the disembodied projection screen, that a social cyberspace can invoke. The Monitor is a cyberspace novel that really works as both a tale of virtual social intrigue and a real life — and death — mystery tale.”
—Howard Rheingold, Internet pioneer,
