With a title like an old Gold Medal novel and a cover that shows some vintage paperback influence, I expected to like DIE, LOVER, DIE, the latest round-robin e-book by the members of the Top Suspense Group. And sure enough, I did. Here’s what the promo materials have to say about the story:
“Lauren Blaine is on the run...fleeing across the country, pursued by a pack of ruthless, skilled, and psychopathic killers.
That's because she's dumped her husband and he hasn't taken it well.
Of course, he might have taken it better if he wasn't a major drug dealer with a gale-force temper... and if she hadn't run off with all of his cash.
Now she's marked-for-death, a moving target for every mercenary, hitman, and sadist in the midwest.
What they don't know is that Lauren is nobody's victim... she's a resourceful, brave, and cunning woman who won't go down without a fight.
This is 10,000 words of non-stop action, violence and sex...a wild ride like nothing else you've read before...from twelve masters of suspense, who teamed up to write this rollicking story 250 rapid-fire words at a time, tag-team style, without an outline, without knowing what was coming next. The result is a pure, literary adrenaline rush.”
When they say “10,000 words of non-stop action, violence, and sex”, they ain’t kiddin’, folks. It’s incredibly entertaining, too, and is best read in one sitting if you want to get the full effect. And here’s the best part: I don’t think the story is over yet. The ending is all set up for a sequel, and I, for one, can’t wait. Highly recommended.
