My rating: 2 of 5 stars

When Ted McKay finds out that he has a brain tumor he decides to take matters into his own hands and end things his own way. With meticulous planning Ted comes to the day that he finds himself alone in his study with his wife and children far away so he is determined to end his own life but just as soon as he begins there is a knock at the door.

Answering the door Ted is faced with an offer to join a suicide circle, he must kill one man that is a criminal and another that is in the same situation as Ted. The offer makes sense as it would be easier on his family to think him the victim of a crime but can Ted actually take others lives?

Kill the Next One is one of those books that while it sounded really interesting the story took a turn that just wasn’t a direction that I’m a huge fan of reading. Hopefully without giving away too much of a spoiler I’ll just say that this would be a thriller that while you think you are reading and following along with the story the events keep being reset on you. I can see some people loving the way this one is written and the idea behind the story but unfortunately I’m just not one that did.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
