her gigs the previous year Kim has no BFFL no friends at all for that matter and wasn t killed after receiving the book The investigators aren t sure why the killer Billy Dead Mates would target her.Unable to figure out what the white books symbolize and why the killer leaves them behind, the investigators turn to Kim for help Kim Tribbeck was quirky, funny and the chapters told from her POV were quite entertaining But I found most chapters told by the detective s POV somewhat dull I d have to say Kim was the reason I didn t give up on the story And Sondra Halliday was a little over the top, with her radical feminism I found myself begging Billy Dead Mates to choose her as his next victim The entire portion dedicated to Charlie investigating her sister s secretive behavior was pointless or I missed something And the ending the reason for the killings was pretty bland A lot of the useless info could have been left out and it would have been a much easier read.Thank you to

killer is on the loose, targeting pairs of best friends Who knew that friendship could be so deadly Shortly before their deaths, each victim is given a small white book with a cryptic message that has police totally baffled Watching the news, Kim remembers an incident a few months ago when an audience member of one of her shows had handed her a similar little book Mystified, Kim had thrown it in the bin without understanding its implications But how does Kim fit into this, when she doesn t even have a best friend In fact, Kim is a loner, having recently split from her husband, and she is estranged from her family So what would Billy Dead Mates which is what police have dubbed the killer don t you love it want with her Could her life be in danger I really enjoyed Sophie Hannah s latest book, especially the chapters narrated by Kim, who was such a quirky, fun character to get to know Being a comedian, she comes out with the most hilarious cynical quips, and her observations are spot on Hannah tries to liven the book up by using different formats to tell her tale there are excerpts from a manuscript Kim Tribbeck is writing about her life, emails, letters, inspirational stories , a newspaper column all interspersed with the traditional first and third person narratives There are also quite a number of different characters to keep track of I initially found some of these threads a bit confusing, but was happy with the way it all came together in the end I liken my reading experience to putting together a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle initially all you see is a jumble of shapes, but when it all comes together there is a big collective sigh of Ahhhh Yes, I see it now which was quite good fun If anything, some parts of the investigation dragged slightly and could have done with some careful editing, but I was so intrigued that it never lost my interest I didn t realise that this book was part of the Spilling CID series, which I had not read before Seeing how I really liked DC Simon Waterhouse and his wife Charlie, I may have to pick up earlier books in the series as well All in all, The Next To Die was a slightly unusual but fun reading experience for me I loved Kim s character and would love to see her back in another book, realising that this is unlikely If you are a reader who enjoys different narration styles and don t mind getting taken along several plot lines during the course of the story, then you will enjoy this one The clever mystery at the core of it all was definitely worth the journey Thank you to Edelweiss and William Morrow for the free

Agatha Christie inspired mysteries, Hannah is known for skillfully playing with narrative style and characterization The new stand alone novel features two main protagonists whose plotlines intersect during the investigation of an apparent serial killer The crimes have a unique signature and the murderer seems to be targeting pairs of best friends First person narrator Kim is an acerbic comedian who uses humor to disarm and maintain distance from others She realizes that she might be a target of the murderer after watching a news report Before their deaths, each victim received a small white book with half of a quote inside Kim remembers having been given a similar object at one of her shows but is baffled by the fact that she does not fit the prior pattern she has no best friend like the others and has thus far been spared their fate Kim s story is told at some points in the novel in the form of a book manuscript she is submitting for publication The other main character, Simon Waterhouse, is a DC assigned as part of the team investigating the homicides He has a prickly personality with an immersive approach to his job that results in an excellent solve rate His wife, Charlie, is assisting on the case, but she is distracted by a mystery of her own involving her sister The killer has been dubbed Billy Dead Mates due to the apparent motive A local columnist insists that the true underlying motive is misogyny even though one of the victims was male She asserts that the police are ignoring this pivotal undercurrent and her provocative pieces attract the interest of the killer Sophie Hannah incorporates a variety of narrative modes and points of view Kim s manuscript, letters, emails, short stories, lists and conventional third person accounts The result is an admirable, if overly ambitious approach, experimenting with traditional whodunnit methods of storytelling The core mystery is interesting, but The Next to Die suffers from too many characters and divergent sub plots It becomes confusing to follow all the threads, and some of the characters are portrayed like overworked caricatures and stereotypes Few, if any, of the characters are likeable and some of the plot devices are unrealistic and implausible Readers who are new to Hannah s work should select another one of her many books to get a accurate idea of her talents flag 1 likeLike see

but readers who are familiar with Simon and Charlie s relationship and their friends and family will follow that part of the storyline better.Overall found this one to just be slightly too long and felt like it had too much going on It s framed around the memoir of a comedian who was involved with a multiple murder case However, it also brings in a journalist who is railing against the police in her columns as she believes the murders are being committed by someone who is anti woman and that this is being ignored It also has, of course, a plot featuring Charlie and Simon And the eventual reveal of the reasoning behind the murders felt fairly over the top flag 1 likeLike see review Aug 10, 2018 Shelleen Toland marked it as dnf Did not finish Very slow and boring flag 1 likeLike see
