Publisher's Summary

Jazz will stop at nothing to save her brother.

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 13-year-old Joaquin’s life. Over and over, child services fails 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.

Skip the first half!

A nonsensical story that got off to an interesting start then flatlined for so long I almost gave up. If you can stick with it, the final chapters may hold your interest though it was obvious about halfway through who the puppeteer was. I’d be more forgiving if this was a Kindle Unlimited freebie w/Audible narration for free, or even $1.99. But it’s definitely not worth a credit. Narration is quite good but can’t make up for the rest.

it was hard to get into at first

when I first started listening to this book it was hard to get into.. I almost didnt keep listening. but I already had it downloaded and decided to listen a little longer. I'm glad I did. it got to the point I couldn't stop listening to it. It had me trying to guess what was going on and ignoring my husband so I could finish!

Roller coaster!

This book kept me on the edge of my seat! The characters seemed like real people who got themselves in over their head! I really enjoyed the story and the narration seemed spot on!

Enjoyed "The Chain"? U will love "The Kill Club"!

Imagine getting a call offering you the resolution of one of your biggest problems, and the only thing you have to do will be to return the favor by getting rid of someone else’s biggest problem. A win win situation, right? or so Jazz thought.

Jazz has this one-time-life-changing option to get rid of her fanatically religious foster-mother who believes that Jesus the Lord can cure Jazz’s brother’s diabetes by locking him up in her house. As she speaks in “languages” commanding the power of God to heal him of his sickness while contradictorily damning Jazz to hell, Jazz is “forced” to join the club.

In “The Kill Club”, we have this fresh premise of a mysterious club of killings going around California. You get a package from Amazon with a set of instructions and a target, and you have to keep in mind that no errors are allowed. Jazz Benavidez is a fighter and the main character of this story who promises a to die ending.

Will Jazz be able to complete her task? Will Jesus cure Jazz’s brother’s diabetes? Will the system in the States be useful? Will the good one win for a chance? As the plot thickens with romance, gun power, fist fights and several plot twist, we start losing hope that this will ever have a happy ending just to realize that you, at the end, weren’t wrong, and if you though you knew better, think again.

If you read/ listened to the chain

Let me say this book was pretty good but if you listened to the chain first you’re not gonna get off that book high with this one. It’s still a pretty good book. It did take me 15 chapters to actually start paying attention. Interesting ending though

Good story, lackluster twist and ending.

The saying of “it’s not the destination but the journey” comes to mind with this book. The book is pretty good but the twist/reveal was pretty illogical and out of nowhere and the ending in general just kind of fell flat. But I don’t regret reading the book by any means.

More like this please

Non-straight bad ass female characters and not pervy?! Thank you! I love crime & thrillers, and this book is a good one, but puts it over the top that I can enjoy & not feel othered. There’s always awkward or boring parts with typical thrillers, specially if there is a love scene, but this story is about two women trying to take back control when they’ve been put into desperate situations to protect loved ones by a system that is far to real and broken. Fun, and enjoyable listen with great characters.
