CBR III Review #69: KILLERS - A Psycho Thriller by Jack Kilborn, Blake Crouch and J.A. Konrath
Kilborn and Crouch have joined forces again after writing Serial and have produced a sequel. How could that be? The last time we saw Luck and Donaldson they were chained a truck headed over a mountain side. Well they survived (barely) and are now they are even more hell bent on killing one another.
Killers is depraved and hilarious. Donaldson and Lucy are both being detained for their crimes. Both of them have grotesque and horrific injuries and the pain only makes them that more certain that the other person must die.
Killers is only 18,500 words but it's a great novella. Crouch wrote the first part of the novel and then Kilborn wrote the second part of the story. Then the third part was written simultaneously in google docs. It helps that Kilborn and Crouch share the same depraved sense of humor that blends so well in horror.
Killers is a worthy sequel to Serial.
