‘Friend Me’ best suspense I’ve read in a long time

friendmeImagine Facebook on steroids.  If social media didn’t frighten you before, it will after you read “Friend Me” by John Faubion.  Taking Facebook to a new level, can create a virtual friend who can look and act like anyone you want even someone who has passed away.  If you could create a virtual friend, would you?  Should you?

Scott is a man in a high-pressure job married to Rachel who is a lonely housewife who desperately wants to be the wife Scott needs and wants.  While viewing Facebook, she sees an ad for and discovers that she can create a virtual friend who can look and act like her best friend who recently passed away.  Scott, who is having trouble at work, is only seeking someone he can talk to who will understand him and his needs.  He decides to create a friend who will understand what he is going through and treat him like the man he wants to be.  Unaware that they are both being manipulated by the programmer, Melissa, they become completely obsessed with their new friends.  

Melissa is determined to have Scott and his family.  When her attempt to murder Rachel is foiled, Melissa becomes enraged and there is nothing she won’t do.  Scott and Rachel must fight for their life and their marriage as Melissa becomes more and more obsessed.

This story grabbed me from the beginning.  I would have read it all at once if I could have.
