NO ONE READS THE FINE PRINT.
The good news is that the USA is finally out of debt. The bad news is that we were bought out by Valor National Bank, and debtors are the new big game, thanks to a tricky little clause hidden deep in the fine print of a credit card application. Now, after a swift and silent takeover that leaves 9-1-1 calls going through to Valor voicemail, they’re unleashing a wave of anarchy across the country.
Patsy didn’t have much of a choice. When the suits showed up at her house threatening to kill her mother then and there for outstanding debt unless Patsy agreed to be an indentured assassin, what was she supposed to do? Let her own mother die?
Patsy is forced to take on a five-day mission to complete a hit list of ten names. Each name on Patsy’s list has only three choices: pay the debt on the spot, agree to work as a bounty hunter, or die. And Patsy has to kill them personally, or else her mom takes a bullet of her own.
Since yarn bombing is the only rebellion in Patsy’s past, she’s horrified and overwhelmed, especially as she realizes that most of the ten people on her list aren’t strangers. Things get even more complicated when a moment of mercy lands her with a sidekick: a hot rich kid named Wyatt whose brother is the last name on Patsy’s list. The two share an intense chemistry even as every tick of the clock draws them closer to an impossible choice.
Delilah S. Dawson offers an absorbing, frightening glimpse at a reality just steps away from ours—a taut, suspenseful thriller that absolutely mesmerizes from start to finish.
This was amazing. Love it like I loved #Murdertrending.
Read it in all of 2 sessions because it was so easy to get into. The first book felt complete and was satisfying, but the hints at wants to come for book 2 show that book 1 only touched the surface. The concept of assassin debt collectors is eerily plausibly. But I wonder what the bank gets off of killing people other than scaring people with very low debt to pay up and people to not getting credit cards in the future.
This book read like the purge where the killers were forced into it to save their loved one. Super curious as to what role her dad plays into thinks and how all the victims were connected.
When reading the book I though Wyatt hanging out with her after she killed his dad was unrealistic, but answers are given in the end that make total sense. I was glad he could be trusted and she had someone to lean on. I want to see how their relationship will progress in the next book. It’s hard to believe they’ve only known each other for a few days, but I guess you get close when going on a murder spree.
Also gotta say that boy eats way too much 🙂
