Review: Killer Move by Michael Marshall

Killer Move is a novel by Michael Marshall and a Thriller from William Morrow.

Book Blurb:

Bill Moore is a man with a plan. He's got a lucrative job selling condos in the Florida keys, a great marriage, and a beautiful house. He had a five year plan for world domination, too, but it's already creeping into year six... so now he's decided to mix it up - just a little.

This means getting in tight with the people in power, the players who run the area like their personal kingdom. It's all going to plan until the day Bill gets to work to find a card left on his desk. It's black on both sides, just one word printed in white: MODIFIED.

From that moment, Bill's life begins to change. At first barely noticeably, then in more and more disturbing ways. Bill soon finds out, in the most terrifying fashion, that he has become the subject of a dark and deadly game... and that he has no choice but to fight back.

My thoughts:

Bill Moore is just your average guy selling condo’s for someone else in Florida.  But he is not happy with the status quo.  He wants to own a company - be The Man.  And he has an idea of how to make that happen.  Get in good with the current owner and start making connections.

But the connections he makes is not at all what he had in mind.  Seems that some of the more wealthy residents in town are bored.  And when they get bored, they play a game.

A game that has Bill in the starring role - only he has no idea about this game, the rules or his part in it.

An unexpected player has shown up - a player from a previous game - and he is not happy with the way his game ended.  He is looking for a little pay back.

Bill’s world is turned upside down - and this time around - there are no winners.

Killer Move is the first book I have read by Michael Marshall and I was engrossed from the first page.

I give Killer Move 5 out of 5 stars.

Why not :) it made me think of Grisham even though they seem nothing alike but since I like those I might just like this one too

Hi Michelle!

Sounds good, new author to me! I have several crime thrillers in the loop ready to read, maybe it's time to crack the spines.
