Waiting on Wednesday (#55) - Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell



Waiting on Wednesday is Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine
 
Dear Killer

 
Goodreads Summary: Rule One—Nothing is right, nothing is wrong.
Rule Two—Be careful.
Rule Three—Fight using your legs whenever possible, because they’re the strongest part of your body. Your arms are the weakest.
Rule Four—Hit to kill. The first blow should be the last, if at all possible.
Rule Five—The letters are the law.

Kit takes her role as London’s notorious “Perfect Killer” seriously. The letters and cash that come to her via a secret mailbox are not a game; choosing who to kill is not an impulse decision. Every letter she receives begins with “Dear Killer,” and every time Kit murders, she leaves a letter with the dead body. Her moral nihilism and thus her murders are a way of life—the only way of life she has ever known.

But when a letter appears in the mailbox that will have the power to topple Kit’s convictions as perfectly as she commits her murders, she must make a decision: follow the only rules she has ever known, or challenge Rule One, and go from there.

Katherine Ewell’s Dear Killer is a sinister psychological thriller that explores the thin line between good and evil, and the messiness of that inevitable moment when life contradicts everything you believe.

 Why I'm Waiting For It: This book screams "awesomesauce" all over! It's amazing how the author is so successful at age 18 and a Stanford freshman. And this book looks so good hopefully it lives up to my expectations! The plot line sounds wickedly good and I love anything thriller this year. Count me in!

Dear Killer is hitting shelves on April 1, 2014 from Katherine Tegan Books

  1. Interesting - this sounds a lot like Kiersten White's Mind Games - have you read it? I'd be interested to compare them.

  3. I just finished it and I really liked it. I thought it was really good. I loved the premise and like the way that it was delivered. It's definitely different for the books that I read, but I think that's why I love it so much. Hope you enjoy it too!
