Book: Murder Your Employer: A McMasters Guide To Homicide

 Book: Murder Your Employer: A McMasters Guide To Homicide

Author: Rupert Holmes

Pages: 400

This is my 70th read of the year

This is the story of students who attend the McMasters School of Homicidal Arts.  It follows three people (who are all adults at the time they become students) who want to muder someone in their life.  They have all made failed attempts by the time the school finds them and encourages them to attend their school to be successful.  The mandatory graduation thesis is getting away with the perfect murder.

This book was dull.  I listened to it when it wasn't available at the library, and it barely held my attention.  It started out strong.  I like the concept and Neil Patrick Harris is one of the readers.  So I had high hopes.  But it is boring and overly wordy.  It is overly detailed and action scenes so drawn out with uncessary explanation that I struggled to keep engaged.  I should have quit, but did want to see if it improved or what the end result was.  In the end, it wasn't worth it.

I would skip this one.

Stars: 2.5
