Wishlist Wednesday #23

Hosted by Pen to Paper
Title: Dear Killer
Author: Katherine Ewell
Publication date: April 1, 2014
Publisher: Katherine Tegan Books

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 wishing: 

This could be a very big miss once I read it, but I refuse to think that this will be anything less than stellar. It involves letters, London, rules, psychological aspects, and sinisterly things. And I love the simplistic cover. I want to know more about this intriguing main character and even more interesting plot. 

Are you wishing for this? What are you wishing for?

  3. The cover for this one is interesting! I have to admit, it doesn't really sound like a book that I would enjoy, but I hope you like it Sunny! :)

  4. I'm so excited for this one as well. The premise sounds fascinating, and the London setting is almost as enticing. Let's hope it's not the "miss" you think it could be!

  5. This sounds REALLY good. I'd definitely like to read it - like you said, killers and letters and London! <3 Great pick!
