Description

Full of can't look away moments, Dear Killer is a psychological thriller perfect for fans of gritty realistic fiction such as Dan Wells's I Am Not a Serial Killer and Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why, as well as television's Dexter.

Rule One--Nothing is right, nothing is wrong. Kit looks like your average seventeen-year-old high school student, but she has a secret--she's London's notorious Perfect Killer. She chooses who to murder based on letters left in a secret mailbox, and she's good--no, perfect--at what she does.

Her moral nihilism--the fact that she doesn't believe in right and wrong--makes being a serial killer a whole lot easier . . . until she breaks her own rules by befriending someone she's supposed to murder, as well as the detective in charge of the Perfect Killer case.

As New York Times bestselling author of the Gone series Michael Grant says, Dear Killer is shocking, mesmerizing, and very smart.

Our customer reviews

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.) 17-year-old Kit is an accomplished murderer, so accomplished that she even has a nickname – the Perfect Killer. Kit’s mother was a murderer before her, and now it’s Kit that collects the letters from the special mailbox, and decides who she wants to kill. But this time around she knows one of the people she is being asked to kill, and things start to get a bit too personal. Will Kit kill the person she knows? And will she get caught? This was an interesting story, which at points was a pretty scary look inside a killers mind. I found Kit to be a bit of a disturbing character. Her ideas about right and wrong, and her lack of guilt over murdering people made it a little difficult to really like her, and as the book went on she seemed to become really quite deranged, taking pleasure in killing people, and making riskier and riskier choices. I liked the storyline in this, even though it was a little disturbing. I don’t know what the hell was wrong with her mother that she turned her nine-year-old daughter into a murderer, but whatever it was had obviously affected Kit, because she obviously carried on doing it on her own! As the book went along, Kit became bolder and bolder with her moves, she killed people in locations where they could be linked to her, she started choosing victims herself, she started to get personally involved in her victims lives, and she even followed the police investigation. The tension aroused by the book was really good though! I kept feeling like I couldn’t look because I was afraid that she was about to make a mistake and get caught! The ending was a little strange, and after all that worrying that she was about to be caught, was a little bit of a disappointment. Things sort of ended the way I expected, but there just wasn’t the fireworks that I expected. Overall; an interesting view into the mind of a killer. 7.25 out of 10.show more
