Kelso's May 2020 pick

If you had the chance, would you be willing to kill a toxic person from a stranger's life in exchange for an equally bad person being eliminated from yours? Quid pro quo style?

This is the basis of this fast-paced thriller from a queer author.

Their foster mother, Carol, has always been fanatical, but with Jazz grown up and out of the house, Carol takes a dangerous turn that threatens thirteen-year-old Joaquin’s life. Over and over, child services fail to intervene, and Joaquin is running out of time.
Then Jazz gets a blocked call from someone offering a solution. There are others like her—people the law has failed. They’ve formed an underground network of “helpers,” each agreeing to eliminate the abuser of another. They’re taking back their power and leaving a trail of bodies throughout Los Angeles—dubbed the Blackbird Killings. If Jazz joins them, they’ll take care of Carol for good.
All she has to do is kill a stranger.

Ms.Heard has a real skill for creating characters who are as unique as they are compelling, with real-life flaws and big, strong voices. The plot of this novel moves at breakneck speed all the way to the dark yet satisfying conclusion, you'll eat this up in no time.

Perfect for fans of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and folks who need a way out of their reading slump. Pick up this full-throttle thriller ASAP.

— From Kelso
