About this deal

In the middle I had to remind myself that just like in the song ‘Escape’ there had to be another twist in each story. Thank you NetGalley and Avid Reader Press for the chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

The first chunk of the book is actually just that, with some additional quotes and info from the dean. His first novel, Where the Truth Lies , was nominated for a Nero Wolfe award for Best American Mystery Novel, was a Booklist Top Ten Debut Novel, and became a motion picture starring Colin Firth and Kevin Bacon. The murder academy of McMasters was an interesting concept and I enjoyed the Professors and Students.A delightful mix of witty wordplay, breathtaking twists and genuine intrigue, Murder Your Employer will gain you admission into a wholly original world, cocooned within the most entertaining book about well-intentioned would-be murderers you’ll ever read. What you do learn is that there are master deceptions going on to keep them all on their toes and also ensure that the Conservatory remains a secret.

He thinks he has planned it all out, but things don’t go quite as he expects, and he eventually finds himself a student at The McMasters Conservatory.Devine works at a prominent investment firm in Manhattan, traveling every day on the 6:20 train and dreaming of a better life. However, I do feel that the pace does slow down considerably in parts owing to excessive detail (mostly in the first half of the novel) which also renders the narrative a tad too lengthy. Murder Your Employer: The McMasters Guide to Homicide has a bit of mystery, a smidgen of mayhem, a splash of dry humor, and a dash of murder. It felt a bit gimmicky and it took a while until I realized there was actually a story here, and not an actual guide (a tweak in the description could help). Wonderful idea, lacked execution, and the last section feels like it was a cut chapter the author insisted on including, rather than a proper ending.

At “The McMasters Conservatory for the Applied Art” the students must have an ethical reason for wanting to eliminate someone very specific from their lives. I came to really care for the characters and was rooting for their success in their deletions as their employers were truly awful people. When Cliff Iverson finds himself wanting to kill his employer, he tries to execute what he feels is the perfect plan. But then you ve probably never heard of The McMasters Conservatory, dedicated to the consummate execution of the homicidal arts. After all, when the behavior of another person leaves you no choice but to kill them, their murder is simply involuntary suicide.A delightful mix of witty wordplay, breathtaking twists and genuine intrigue, Murder Your Employer will gain you admission into a wholly original world, cocooned within the most entertaining book about well-intentioned would-be murderers you’ll ever read. This is no ordinary place, and it is not long before he is assured there are 2 ways you leave this place… either graduate, or if you fail then you yourself end up being the one that is “deleted”. I'm a sucker for worldbuilding and when it's done well I will eat up every miniscule detail like a little snack and MYE was a whole feast of visual, auditory, tactile, gustatory and olfactory imagery and the illustrations were the cherry on top.

The campus of this Poison Ivy League college-its location unknown to even those who study there-is where you might find yourself the practice target of a classmate.Harbinger warns from the start that not all three students will succeed in their respective missions, fostering a sense of mystery surrounding who fails, why they fail, and how spectacularly.
