Uick Roll up your antlegs it s too late to save your shoes I can t count how many times I ve said that over the years And I m betting I said it at least half a dozen times during the couple of days it took to read this book At issue you see is that only a ton of money 200000 to be exact will save Gary Foster s wife Beth from dying or correctly give her a chance of not dying as soon as she otherwise will Beth who s The Sand-Reckoner pregnant with their long hoped for child has been diagnosed with a gioblastoma the same type of brain cancer that took the life of the son of former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife and currently threatens the life of Arizona Sen John McCain making this a timely topic But alas there s no treatment except via an experimental drug found only in Germany while there are no guarantees so far the trials have shownositive results The only drawback The exorbitant cost Gary and Beth try everything they can think of to raise the money but no matter what they do it s just not enough Enter a shady character named Otto who somehow learns about their dilemma and contacts Gary with an offer he can t refuse Want the money Commit murder And from that Aztlan point on any sympathy I had for Garyretty much went out the window I had to wonder if the Fosters were subjected to the current TV commercial for one of those miracle drugs that roclaims Who wouldn t want the chance to live longer Well don t be ridiculous we all would But at what cost I know for certain I wouldn t kill someone else to get a drug that might or might not work and if I were the atient I also know for certain I would never try to make my husband feel guilty for not doing to help as Beth did at one early on Paris Encore (Zion Covenant, point And right then Iretty much stopped feeling sorry for her as wellAs one might suspect nothing is as simple as it appears but many of the obstacles in Gary s uest for serious cash stem from what I d call Boyfriends from Hell plain old stupidity Who in his right mind would agree to the strict terms Otto sets forth especially when not accompanied by a hefty downayment at the very least But agree Gary does and from that Battered Not Broken point on no matter how fast he shovels the mud just keeps getting deeper as new turns of events stand between him and the money he so desperately wants Meanwhile almost as an afterthought we learn that the outdoor apparel shop Gary and his brother Rod operate is in serious financial trouble But honestly since Rod is a reformed screw up and I just can t warm up to Gary or Beth I found it hard to careThere s no shortage of action which held my attention throughout as I tried my best to figure out how the whole escapade would end Not uite so happily though I also wrestled with a few other inconsistencies Wouldn t Beth for instance balk at taking an experimental drug without knowing it wouldn t harm her baby And why did an event venue operator who claimed to have no open dates for months to come offer just a few days later a date only two weeks away Hmmm guess a few folks bailed ehOh well I ll never know Regardless overall this is a fastaced adventure that I read almost in a single sitting with as I mentioned early on a timely topic Thanks to the What Ive Become (The Humanity Within Book 1) publisher via NetGalley for allowing me to read an advance copy in exchange for an honest reviewKiller Choice by Tom Hunt Berkley January 2018 352p So just recently I was grumbling and being a Debbie Downer by 2 starring a buzz book that s got a lot of The Contemporaries people

the Poker Slave pagesractically turn themselves We re introduced to middle America all around good guy Gary Foster whose life suddenly spirals into desperate circumstances His To the Golden Shore pregnant wife Beth who he is madly in love with has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour They need 200000 dollars to get her the miracle treatment she needs Just when you think life can t get

of Gary s ordeal Tabloid City pulling him towards the edge of the abyss is Shamrock s or Otto as we will come to know him Otto is not a good guy and is basically living a Mirror Universe life that s theolar opposite from Good Guy Gary s But in his own way Otto s found himself ensnared in circumstances just as desperate driving him to make choices he thought he would never make The collision course that both these men are on and how far it will take them is straight up compelling reading For a debut novel this is very strong and I can t wait to see what the author does next Gary Foster and his wife Beth had been trying for years to become Kirkland Revels parents and have a baby and just when they didn t think it would happen Beth becameregnant Gary also has his career just where he wants it having just opened a business with his bro.

Xciting read that calls the average Arcana Mundi person s morality into uestion I had a hard timeutting it down I m giving it a 45 out of 5 and will round it up Great book and certainly worth the read for thriller lovers I received a free advance copy of this for review from the به سوی زبان شناسی شعر publisherGary and Beth Foster are a nice couple who truly love each other and their idea of a good time islaying Scrabble or watching Netflix They don t have a lot of money but they re happy just being together Now that Beth has finally gotten Genesis pregnant after years of trying they feel like things couldn t get any better Which is exactly theoint when life tends to kick nice Mirror Matter people in the junk After Beth collapses while out shopping she s uickly diagnosed with aarticularly nasty brain tumor that will barely allow her to give birth before dying but there s a new A Kiss of Shadows (Merry Gentry procedure in Europe that might extend her life for years Unfortunately it will cost them 200000 to try it and they don t have anywhere near that kind of cash As hope begins to fade Gary receives ahone call with an offer for him to earn all the money they need The catch is that he ll have to murder someone to get it This debut novel from Tom Hunt is the kind of high concept hook that has Six Days put many a book on the best seller list and sold a lot of tickets to movies and there s a reason for that it works Or at least it works when there s some talent behind the idea and there s definitely talent here Hunt s got a way of laying it all out in the straight forward fashion that many a crime writer has and he s also got the knack of making that style compellingThere s two things that really stood out for me First is that there s a good amount of time spent on the efforts that are done by Beth and Gary with the help of their friends and family to come up with the money Theyut Awareness pleas on the internet hold events like hot dog dinners and tell their story to the media all asart of the desperate fundraising only to realize that after all that it s not even close to being enough It s a bleak Cat Out of Hell portrait of how Americans often have to resort to glorified begging to get medical treatment The otherart is the story of Otto the man asking Gary to commit a murder for hire Otto is a ex con who runs a Chicken Soup for the Soul at Work pawn shop as a front for his real business of dealing drugs and he s got a hugeroblem that has made him desperate enough to try and use an average guy as a killer We get Otto s story told in Mother India parallel and his criminal underworld couldn t be different than Gary s suburban life The contrast between the two is well done and underlines the desperate measures that both men feel driven to even if they have nothing else in common On the downside Gary s bland niceness is too much at times and his hand wringing about the morality of murder does get a little old after a while It was never enough to completely take me out of the story thoughWhat seems like an airplane read on the surface takes turns that ultimately make me think of this of outright noir It s solid crime story and I ll certainly check out what Tom Hunt does next Fastaced Great read 45 StarsI love when a book surprises you I The Late Romances picked up this suspense novel expecting tout in a lot of hours basking in

truthYou think you know the answer and how this will end up But you arerobably wrongA highly engaging fast moving story that is a bit shocking gritty and even a bit too out there to be true Or is

World points of view From Gary serspective I should have been sad and stressed and emotionally wrought I wasn t From Otto s Rooming in the Masters House perspective I should have felt truly terrified instead I couldn t care less if Otto was tortured and beheaded like it appeared might happen to him When thelot finally got going it was ridiculous Gary could have found another way to solve his
