Stephanie Plum meets Dexter

Below is a composite review of the series in general:

The series is orignal with zany amusing characters. These is plenty of action , surprises and humor.

The series is sort of a combination of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum and Jeff Lindsay's Dexter. Kissy, the zany, quirky heroine reminds me of Stephanie. She has a very likeable straight arrow boyfriend who unwittingly gets caught up in all the mischief and mayhem,



Tim, is the hit man / serial killer who like Dexter only kills bad guys after vetting them. If a client employees him to kill an undeserving target then it is the client who has a funeral. Tim calls himself the "Killer with a conscience" aka the KC Killer. Unfortunately some perspective clients think that KC Killer means "Killer on Command".

Tim returns to town after his mentor's death and when his sister Julia (Kissy's best friend) is laid up with a broken leg. Tim has a major crush on Kissy. Kissy has a way of disrupting Tim's occupational assignments. Tim is not an inept fumbling assassin per see; it's just that Kissy and her gang of bumbling friends have a way of fouling up Tim's assignments.

This is a fun orignal series! It is not great literature, however it is very enjoyable and zany.

Good

Short story getting to know the different characters. Mayhem with the music scene, and going on a date with a KC, who was a target, now he’s having to save both of them. Good narration by the author

Great story, but just to short wanted more

I really like the main character Chase! A killer for hire with a moral compass. I also enjoyed Kissey she is a hoot too. I think this author will be fun to follow

Killer with a Conscience

I have been listening to Gwendolyn Druyor for ages, she's one of my favourite narrators but I had no idea she wrote too. So when I came across this series I just had to listen to it. I'm so glad I found it, it's an interestingly different series peopled by some wonderful characters.

In this first book, Tim returns to his hometown supposedly to look after his sister Julia who has broken her leg. But Tim is really a hired killer, but he's a killer with a conscience, known on the dark web as The KC. He will only kill bad guys and if you try to make him kill a good guy you've purchased your own death. Tim has a job to do, he's been hired to kill someone at a club and to help gain entrance to the club he asks his sister's best friend Kissie to go with him as she's a performer and they have an open mike!

What follows was unexpected, different and fun, so much so that I just had to listen to the next book in this series. The narration is by Gwendolyn Druyor reading her own work and once again it's excellent.

Just couldn't get into this story

Cops, drugs, prostitutes, night clubs, bombs, hired killer....this story has it all but evidently not enough to really capture my attention. I will listen to a couple more by this author to see if they get better.

Quick and fast paced

Any additional comments?

Dramatic and intense. This book was named aptly. For anyone who enjoys criminal thrillers, this book is a must. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.

Like a Pilot Episode to a TV Show

Since I am a fan of Gwendolyn Druyor’s narration, I wanted to give one of her own books a try. Since she is a great narrator, I figured that the performance alone would be worth it.

We get a super fast story that reunites Kissy with her friend’s brother, Tim. He takes her out on a job with him, since he is a KC—Killer with a Conscience. Along the way, we meet police officer Avi, who sings bass and hits it off with musical firecracker Kissy.

This is a short work. I knew that going into it, but I still wanted more. I would say the best way to think of this is a pilot episode to a TV series. It puts all the characters in place and gives us glimpses to what might come up in the future, such as a love triangle between Kissy, Tim and Avi. There are several more stories after this, so you can listen to the further adventures of Kissy, Tim and Avi just to be sure.

Druyor’s narration is as good as I expected it to be. There were some clever parts to this story that I rather liked. For example, near the end we meet a dominatrix who had a very unique way of capturing her intended target. I liked it so much I had to tell several people I knew who appreciate a good whodunnit. The name Avi may or may not be a reference to the wonderful bass singer Avi Kaplan from the group Pentatonix, but he was the Avi who immediately came to my mind.

I recommend this to those who only have time for quick reads/listens and who like a fast-paced mystery. There isn’t a lot of explicit sex or violence, but due to length there just isn’t time for it. If you like this one, there are several other stories to go with it.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Killer on Call

A quite good short listen, superbly read by the author herself which is good impo. The story is a little disturbing but not too bad. I did struggle to follow the plot in parts but all came together in the end.

Killer on Call

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review.

This was an alright novel. It was well written and characterised well, but at points the plot escaped me and I had trouble following it.
