Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Murder List by Jackie Kabler. Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the tour invite. Read on for more info and my review.
When Mary receives a blank diary as a present, she thinks nothing of it. Until she opens the diary, and sees it’s not blank after all…
1st January MURDER LISA, OXFORD
1st February MURDER JANE, BIRMINGHAM
1st March MURDER DAVID, CARDIFF
1st April MURDER MARY, CHELTENHAM
Is this some kind of sick joke? But…it’s the end of January now. And a woman named Lisa was murdered in Oxford on 1st January.
Does that mean there really is a killer out there, planning to commit a new murder on the first of each month? And is the Mary due to be killed on 1st April her?
The clock is ticking for Mary to uncover the truth, before she becomes the next victim on the killer’s list…
The Murder List by Jackie Kabler is a gripping psychological thriller that had me flipping the pages quickly because I was invested from the start. Twists and turns galore and some very surprising moments, this is a fantastic read!
I liked the characters a lot in this story. They were relatable and well-written, feeling very real. This is important to me as a reader and this author nailed it. Mary is a great lead. She is a bit calmer than I would have anticipated for someone who’s a target of a killer, but we all react differently. I liked reading her point of view.
There is so much suspense, this is a very difficult novel to set down once you start reading. This is my first read from this author and it certainly won’t be my last. Don’t miss out on this one if you enjoy psychological thrillers!
