Still an amazing 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ on the reread! Now for Endgame....


When I saw that this wasn't going to be a straight follow up to Ragdoll with Wolf in it, I was disappointed. Was I wrong? Hell yes. This is outrageously good and one of the funniest books i've read in ages. If you think that humour doesn't mix with serial murder, you are mistaken, and the proof is right here. Baxter is the Queen of snark and i'm not lying when I say this really is laugh out loud funny. I LOVE her. I'd read about her all day long; in fact, that's precisely what I did with this book. There are times where it heads into the farcical (that spider scene) but I was having so much fun that Cole could have whipped out a chorus line of serial killers dressed as schoolgirls doing the conga and I would have said: sure, ok, i'm in. There's lots of deaths and danger and thrills and all that jazz, but it's all about the characters for me.

An easy 5 stars.

And then the author hits you with that last section on top of it all....????? Bring it, Cole!

It’s honestly so silly and fun and dark and snarky. If you ever want something different... easy to read that'll make you smile, this is it. And how many books that include mass murder can you say that about???? 😂
