Wendy Heard is a brilliant storyteller and “The Kill Club” is a murderous, sexy story that sucked me in right away. Not only does this book promote insomnia, but you will never look at a flip phone the same way again. For some reason, I visualize everything in this story as a Quentin Tarantino movie stuck on a twisted roller coaster where Wendy Heard screws with your emotions. It has the essence of a dark comedy and it was hard for me to put down because the hook at the end of every chapter revealed a little bit more to unravel the mystery. To be honest, I’ve never been able to read a book with multiple POVs, this one is in both first and third person. It’s not a typical style I care for, but it flowed seamlessly and the plot was compelling and fast-paced. 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.

From the author:
A Note on Content. This book deserves a content warning for abuse: intimate partner, interfamilial, religious, and abuse related to homophobia. I hope you enjoy the story, but it’s important to know these things in case you’re gifting this to someone who wishes to stay away from this type of content. Thank you so much for engaging in my work and going on these strange and dark journeys with me. – Wendy
