“Okay,” I say, and in that one word is contained an ocean of acceptance. This is where I am. This is what I’m doing.
I think about what the reporter said, that the people who have been killed have had records of stalking, domestic violence. It actually sounds like the voice on the phone is who they say they are. They invented a serial killer. The police are searching LA for a murderer that doesn’t exist.
I don’t know how I feel about this, morally. Is it bad to kill someone like Carol? Does she deserve the death sentence? Do I have any feelings about her being dead? … I remember the guy I saw die at Villains. I heard him scream. It’s definitely not painless. But then I remember Carol with her baseball bat crunching through my bones like glass, and I think, Good.
How is she so put-together at six in the morning? When I work early shifts at Trader Joe’s, I look like an orphan in a Christmas movie.
This book was devilishly clever and fiendishly addictive, I was taut with tension and unable to put my Kindle down without deeply resenting the intrusion to my reading. The main character of Jasmine was deeply flawed and horribly unlucky, and though well-intentioned she was a total screw up in every arena. I cringed for her while simultaneously wanting to give her a smack to the back of the head. The storylines were highly active, heartbreaking, twisted, brutal, gripping, and fraught with tension with unexpected and greatly welcomed glints of snarky levity and sharply edged wit. This was my first exposure to the cunning storytelling of Wendy Heard and I was an instant fangirl, I greedily want to amass all her clever words.

If someone offered to kill your abuser and all you had to do in return was first kill an anonymous abuser, what would you do? Law&Order did a rip-off of Strangers on a Train where both women went down for killing the other’s husband.
A stranger offers to kill Jasmine’s abusive foster mother, who’s still abusing her younger brother. Everything s our the scenario screams no, to Jazz, except for thirteen-year-old Joaquin’s safety.
I loved THE KILL CLUB’s premise. Wendy Heard’s followup to her debut HUNTING ANNABELLE has a similar dark-and-twisty style plot with unique characters. The execution of the story, with a number of points of view, fell flat for me with too many subplots. I was uninterested in all of the POVs except for Jazz’s and couldn’t buy into the instalove scenario. The villains lacked the dimension they needed to feel realistic.
Throughout THE KILL CLUB, I kept trying to picture myself in the scenario of someone offering to kill my abusers. As much as I feared them and (when I was younger) wished for their deaths, I don’t think I could have seriously considered killing someone, even to protect the person I cared most about. Any way I spun the what-ifs, I found better alternatives though I understood Jasmine had fewer emotional resources.
Readers who enjoy the action/thrill/suspense and don’t care as much about character will probably enjoy THE KILL CLUB more than I did.
Other noteworthy aspects:
The main character, Jazz, is a cynical badass I want to embrace, be friends with, and, perhaps, kiss! And be ready because this story will cover all the emotions, making you laugh, scream, and cry.
Thank you to Wendy Heard, Mira Books, and NetGalley for an advanced copy. I hope to be considered for an advanced copy of ANYTHING Wendy Heard writes from here on out.
Jazz is a fantastically flawed, yet amazingly bada$$ main character who is repeatedly thrust into situations that make you ask your self "would I?". The book is incredibly fast-paced (I tore through it in just two sittings), and barrels towards and ending that knocked me for a loop.
I wasn’t expecting to be hit in the heart by author Wendy Heard’s characters, but I’m glad I was.
Our protagonist, late twenty-something Jazz, is dealing with a lot when we find her living in a less-than-glamorous Los Angeles. One of Jazz’s primary concerns is protecting her teenage brother, Joaquin, from his awful foster mother, with whom Jazz also used to live.
Then she witnesses the death of a man while she’s onstage at a rock show. The death is discovered to be a murder, one of a rash of poisonings carried out by THE KILL CLUB.
How does she find this out? Because she’s next in line to receive the benefit of having someone—in this case, the crazy foster mother—taken out by a stranger.
All Jazz has to do is take out someone else’s boogeyman, first.
What’s nice is that the setup, already enough to get me on board, was truly only the beginning. And unlike many action thrillers with this kind of pace, the character development does not suffer at all.
I highly recommend this novel, whether you enjoy psychological suspense, action, or mystery thrillers. I
It has something for everyone—and then some.
