About this deal

Murder Your Employer: The McMasters Guide to Homicide has a bit of mystery, a smidgen of mayhem, a splash of dry humor, and a dash of murder. The concept of the book “A murderer’s finishing school” is pretty clever, and I liked the stories of the M. Merryn on Yellowface: what a wild ride Interesting to read in the context of the Hugo Award shenanigans and Kuang's excellent book Babel being mysteriously declared ineligible when the awards are being.

After all, when the behaviour of another person leaves you no choice but to kill them, their murder is simply involuntary suicide. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). Unfortunately for me this time Simon Vance was so monotone and long drawn that I couldn’t keep track of who was speaking when.

Set on a campus where the institution teaches undergraduates how to murder someone without getting caught, the story was an original and filled with fun characters. As Holmes takes hairpin turns from irony back to sincerity for his three McMasters pupils, his zany storytelling will delight fans of The Twyford Code by Janice Hallett, all Sherlock Holmes stories, and even those who love tales of arcane and Gothic institutions. COLD SPRING - The daffodils have made a showy arrival on his hillside overlooking the Hudson, but Rupert Holmes really wants to talk about people pushing up daisies. There are multiple plots that are well thought out with likeable characters, because there are multiple main characters. It is our intent and purpose to foster and encourage in-depth discussion about all things related to books, authors, genres, or publishing in a safe, supportive environment.

There are many things to consider and even IF you manage to pull it off, how will you get away (after all, you don't want to let the asshole employer have the last laugh, do you)? Also, sometimes it got too wordy and technical, which had some charm and merit but it also caused a reader to feel tossed out of the imaginary world and forced into a sense of. I’m honestly not sure that any book exclusively about murder has the right to be so wonderfully wholesome, but this one is. It follows 1 main character and 2 other potential murderers as they take their courses and learn how to correct past mistakes.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. And because each student has got their own specific motives and challenges, the methods differ for each “deletion”.

This is specialty school and world unknown to us mundanes (you have to know someone who knows someone to get in), and it’s also kind of an homage to the highly detailed nature of an attempted crime in a Sherlock Holmes or Agatha Christie murder scenario. The campus of this "Poison Ivy League" college-its location unknown to even those who study there-is where you might find yourself the practice target of a classmate. Thank you NetGalley and Avid Reader Press for the chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review. Decent character development brings Cliff Iverson to life and helps shape those with whom he comes in contact. A delightful mix of witty wordplay, breathtaking twists and genuine intrigue, Murder Your Employer will gain you admission into a wholly original world, cocooned within the most entertaining book about well-intentioned would-be murderers you'll ever read.Who hasn’t wondered for a split second what the world would be like if a person who is the object of your affliction ceased to exist? I would have liked just a little more thrilling moments sprinkled through the slow burn to keep me more invested, but overall it was quite the fun read! Rupert Holmes’s New York Times bestseller, Murder Your Employer (the first volume in his new McMasters Guide to Homicide series), was also a Top Ten on the Indie Bestseller List, the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Houston Chronicle, and Associated Press. Reddit and its partners use cookies and similar technologies to provide you with a better experience. With all of the detailing and overtly explaining how they all learned and planned their murders - the methods were smart, don't get me wrong - it became kind of repetitive.

Devine works at a prominent investment firm in Manhattan, traveling every day on the 6:20 train and dreaming of a better life. The good part in this book is that all McMasters’ students have their reasons to delete and we experience their emotional struggles. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. Baltimore engineer Cliff Iverson, British hospital worker Gemma Lindley, and incognito Hollywood star Dulcie Mown may hail from different walks of life, but all are at McMasters for the same reason: to learn how to kill their sadistic employers without getting caught. With dry humor and an eye for hidden clues, Rupert Holmes imagines a secret Hogwarts-like school that teaches the fine art of pulling off the perfect (and perfectly deserved) murder.At the start of the book, we are introduced to Cliff Iverson who for reasons best known only to him at this time is determined to kill his former boss in a way that he hopes will also ensure that he does not get arrested for murder. I came to really care for the characters and was rooting for their success in their deletions as their employers were truly awful people. These are real titles: 'The Talmud for Dummies,' 'Tiny Houses for Dummies,' 'Tattoos for Dummies,' as if you would do your own tattoo. This is actually a pretty interesting and entertaining murder mystery where the mystery is not who dies or who dunnit; it’s how the would be ‘deletist’ (we don’t say ‘killer’ here) will achieve their goal while not getting caught and still observing the 4 main principles of ‘deletion’ (we don’t’ say ‘murder’): Is this murder necessary? Wonderful idea, lacked execution, and the last section feels like it was a cut chapter the author insisted on including, rather than a proper ending.
