When 15-year-old fashion vlogger Beth Bailly is brutally murdered, the Internet loses its shit. The pressure for an arrest becomes near overwhelming for veteran detective Robin Stone and his team. Amidst the turmoil, Millie Baker – a civilian support officer – takes a break from chatting Love Island and begins her own investigation, focusing on the victim’s last googling.
