The Kill Club by Wendy Heard
AD | book tour
Have you ever asked yourself the question as to whether you would kill a stranger to save someone you loved? Well, Jazz has to ask herself exactly that. Dark and twisted, The Kill Club is a thriller with a difference.
Jazz will stop at nothing to save her brother.
Their foster mother, Carol, has always been fanatical, but with Jazz grown up and out of the house, Carol takes a dangerous turn that threatens thirteen-year-old Joaquin’s life. Over and over, child services fails to intervene, and Joaquin is running out of time.
Then Jazz gets a blocked call from someone offering a solution. There are others like her–people the law has failed. They’ve formed an underground network of “helpers,” each agreeing to eliminate the abuser of another. They’re taking back their power and leaving a trail of bodies throughout Los Angeles–dubbed the Blackbird Killings. If Jazz joins them, they’ll take care of Carol for good.
All she has to do is kill a stranger.
THE KILL CLUB – MY THOUGHTS
I really really enjoyed this book. Packed full of action and with a plot that kept your guessing to the very last page. this has been one of my favourite books of 2019 so far. I especially LOVED Jazz as the central character. She’s fiercely protective, funny and quick tempered!
Most thrillers I read are written from the perspective of law enforcement and therefore it gives a full and complete overview of what is happening from a implied perspective of balance. What you have in The Kill Club though is an emotional and chaotic account of events from the Jazz’s perspective. It’s flawed – a little like Jazz herself – but fast paced and gripping.
I will say that I wasn’t completely happy with the ending. No particular reason but it just felt a little flat after such a great book. It’s the only thing stopping this being a 5* review but it certainly didn’t stop me enjoying the book and I would 100% recommend it.
Filled with desperation and hope, love and hate, The Kill Club will literally keep you turning page after page. The Kill Club is released on 17 December and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
