The ending isn't what I was expecting when I started reading this book. Interesting story, and fun to read. This is a nice "filler" book for those of us who don't always have time to read epic novels!

I read this book in one day (Sat. April 3, 2010). I was browsing the aisles at my local Barnes & Noble when the cover got my attention. Once I opened it up and read the first chapter I was entertained, enthralled and intrigued throughout. Totally Killer is exactly what it says it's going to be - a knockout read. It's got great plot and interesting characters often making me feel nostalgic since many of the references made are in New York City. At times I felt myself sympathizing with Taylor Smith. Quick read ..... I truly loved this book ! AWESOME !

Totally Killer Greg Olear Harper Collins 10 East 53rd Street, New York, NY 10022 978-0-06-173529-5, $13.99, 2009 This novel is about a murder that took place in 1991. The main character is Todd and he finds a roommate named Taylor Schmidt. As he gets more involved with Taylor, he starts to fall for her and finds her secret journals and starts reading them while she is gone. As luck would have it, he ends up losing his job because he keeps leaving work early. Taylor in the meantime, gets a temporary job thru Quid Pro Quo and suddenly meets an intriguing man named Asher Krug. Taylor quickly learns there is more to him than meets the eye and she soon finds out he is a hit man. As the novel progresses, Asher soon has Taylor participating in his "pink slip" operation, recruiting her to kill people. Eventually, Taylor has Todd join the ranks of this Quid Pro Quo. He soon finds out that Asher is targeting his former Supervisor, Donna Green. Todd literally flips out and feels he is backed into a corner by taking this job. By this time Taylor is hooked and acquires a thirst for killing. During one of the diary readings, Todd finds a passage that references Taylor possibly going to kill Todd. Eventually, Taylor finds her way back to the apartment in a drunken state and tells Todd that she and Asher broke up. The two finally get together and this kind of frightens Todd because he remembers what she put in the diary. Fearing for his life, Todd ends up shooting Taylor in the face. The lawyer tries to get to take a plea deal and Todd fells like Quid Pro Quo once again is not giving him a choice, making him do something he doesn't want to do. Todd becomes the fall guy for the players involved for this company. He even starts to question his own sanity when the lawyers suggest that Quid Pro Quo never existed. He gets the maximum sentence for this crime and ends up getting out when he is Forty three years old. This book was adorable and I loved the references to the Nineties, especially the songs and the clothing. The author made you feel like you were back in that time period. I would recommend this book to all young adults who grew up in this time period. This was a pleasant murder mystery and a very quick read.
