About this deal

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. 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 audiobook about well-intentioned would-be murderers you’ll ever hear. Preparing you for an education you'll never forget, this introduction to The McMasters Conservatory, dedicated to the consummate execution of homicidal arts, follows students as they prepare for graduation by getting away with the perfect murder of someone whose death will make the world a much better place to live"--. I read that the people who designed the stuff, they took a thousand model airplane kits and just glued tons and tons, thousands of little details onto the hull so that as you go in and in you keep seeing more detail and more detail and you thought, 'Well, this must be real. It sounds like you've said it in your lifetime, even though you've never said ‘a deletist,’” Holmes said with an ever-present laugh.

To be a student at this institution, you will have to undergo a rigorous selection process and your motive must be clear and justified. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.About the book (blurb from Penguin Random House SA) One hot summer day, stuck in traffic on her way to pick up the cake for her daughter’s sixteenth birthday party, Grace Adams snaps.

The story starts with poor Cliff Iverson who tries to kill his admittedly terrible corporately evil boss, not quite succeeding, and getting drafted into the McMasters Conservatory (scholarship sponsored by an unknown benefactor) to make sure that he does not fail the second time. In fact, the school’s location is so secret, students arrive blindfolded after being taken on quite a circuitous journey. Darkly enriching…this intriguing tale of mystery, mayhem and murder is the perfect blend of intelligence and intricacy. Or they fail, in which case they are humanely killed and leave in an attractive casket containing their ashes.His first novel, “Where the Truth Lies,” made into a feature film starring Colin Firth and Kevin Bacon, also has a body count. The second half of the novel definitely picks up the pace as we follow the three graduates as they embark on their individual projects. The writing was witty without being exhausting, the dialogue flowed and the twists and turns conveyed just right. Someone in even only a slight (maybe even falsely perceived) position of power over you, and possibly others, who shamelessly used that to their advantage? The murders were hugely overplanned, in a way that sounds clever at first glance but entirely depended on a whole lot of people unknowingly doing things exactly as hoped, and detailed so lovingly that the book slowed to an absolute crawl.

Holmes describes how three students find their way to McMasters, what they experience, the classes they take, dorm life, and ultimately, their thesis.Some terminology that may be used in this description includes: Bookplate Highly sought after by some collectors, a book plate is an inscribed or decorative device that identifies the owner, or former. It read like there was no editor and the author watched Knives out a few times and had a bunch of ideas and didn't know how to pick one so threw them together without any concept of how to make them into a cohesive narrative.
