KILL HIS WIFE BEFORE
SHE KILLS HIM
Eileen has always suspected that her husband is capable of murder - ever since that unfortunate incident when the pushchair mysteriously fell into the swimming pool with the child still strapped inside and Malcolm simply pulled out a chair and sat down to watch.
Malcolm on the other hand, is utterly convinced that his wife wants him dead - ever since he awoke one morning to find Eileen straddled on top of him with a pillow pressed down firmly against his face.
Encouraged by the unlikely friendship that he has forged with his new friend Rita, Malcolm knows what he must do...
Picture this: You’re stuck in your truck in a jam heading north on Interstate 15. Some retard is threatening to jump from the pedestrian bridge up above and no one’s going anywhere ‘til the cops and their people can talk him down. Then, just when it’s starting to look like things can’t get any worse, your man on the bridge suddenly slips and loses his balance. No one can get to him in time and he plummets head first onto the asphalt below. You’re pleased right? At least now they can clear up the mess and you can be on your way. Well, that was kind of how I felt the night of my father’s execution.
SUCH IS THE FATE OF THOSE
THAT ARE GREEDY FOR FINANCIAL GAIN.
IN THE END, IT WILL ROB THEM OF LIFE
Cross Killer is a quirky read with splashes of dark humour. From her base in Stoke Fleming, Lucy has come up with a plot revolving around a rather macabre and dysfunctional set of people, several of whom have murder in mind. Eileen and Malcolm Muldoon are desperate to kill each other but meanwhile there is a real killer out there. Lots of twists and yes, you do need to know what happens. A clever debut novel.
Unlike typical thrillers, Cross Killer is slightly different as the author intertwines humour into the narrative in a really clever, unconventional way. The author kept me guessing throughout the plot, as readers are eager to find out if Eileen's husband Malcolm is involved in a series of chilling, cold-blooded murders.
Cross Killer blends humourand suspense nicely. A great beach book and great character development. This is a mysterious comedy of errors. You enjoy all the characters, you say to yourself... 'he did what'... 'no way.' Then you giggle. You find yourself at times even chuckling at the serial killer. Honestly, who does that??? Looking forward to more from this author.
