Back of the Book :
Once, serial killer Alvie Knightly was living the dream.
An Italian getaway.
A hot new boyfriend . . .
How the mighty fall.
One year – and one very unfortunate incident – later, Alvie is homeless, surviving on meal deals, and counting her dwindling pennies.
It’s time for one last hit, and if anyone can pull it off – in six-inch heels – it’s Alvie.
But if she’s to succeed in her mission to avenge her ex, win back her money and secure her future, she’ll have to face her most terrifying enemy yet . . .
What I think :
Alvie Knightly was a serial killer, she had it all.
A gorgeous house.
A gorgeous boyfriend.
Then something happened and now she has, well nothing, nothing at all.
Alvie wants revenge.
For her and for her boyfriend.
She hatches a plan but will she be able to follow through ?
She changes her identity and gets a job, at the Savoy no less. And pretty soon she’s up close and personal with her target …
Then her past rears its ugly head, will she be able to defeat her past before it catches up with her … ?
I quite enjoyed this book. It’s the last in a trilogy and I haven’t actually read the first two. But I was able to follow it as there are plenty of flash backs to help those who like me haven’t read the other two. It does work quite well as a stand alone.
Written from the point of view of a serial killer, its a very easy read. With Alvie all the time trying to justify why she’s doing this one last hit, it does make for some pretty interesting reading !!!
Whilst I enjoyed this book, I don’t think that I will be reading the other two books in the series, I found it slightly unbelievable in certain places and like it was really trying too hard. Sorry !
I give it 7/10
