The Killer You Know by S.R. Masters

You are a bored teenager during the summer hanging around with a bunch of your friends. The five of you have been together all summer with lack of anything else to do in your small town. One of your friends states it is his goal in life to become a serial killer. You all laugh and think yeah okay weirdo, lay off the drugs. Yet there is something disturbing about the depth of details he goes into. He states there will be 3 murders all made to look like a suicide. He gives you all the details, so you will know it was his work when you hear about them. You laugh it off and other jokes are made. Years go by, you all drift apart. You don't think about the drunken drug fueled conversation of youth. Or do you?

Fast forward 16 years. The gang wants to get back together for a reunion. Everyone shows but one person. The person that claimed he would become a killer. You turn to google and are terrified by what you find.....

I was reading another book when I received an advanced copy of The Killer You Know. I had been highly anticipating reading this particular book. The premise was so intriguing. I thought I would just read one chapter, just to get a feel for it. Nope, it was all over at that point. The author had hooked me and I had to keep reading.

Right from the start you are pulled in by the promise of a possible killer. A killer you may know. I spent the whole time looking for clues and trying to unravel the truth. I kept figuring out what really happened, except I was wrong. The author managed to keep me guessing until the end.

I also quite enjoyed the 1990's. So I especially appreciated all the references to the 1990's bands. It brought back a flood of memories. I almost felt nostalgic. You know what it means when you experience nostalgia don't you? You don't?  Well read the book and you will!

It is hard to believe this is Mr. Masters first novel. Bravo! It was fantastic. I can't wait to read more from him.

5 Fantastic stars from me!

Thank  you to S.R. Masters for this advanced read.
