My Thoughts 

This gave me Single White Female met You vibes. 

Jane is a self diagnosed sociopath. She's also a middling author, living in a disillusioned marriage, unable to reach the level of powerful writing she attained when at Oxford, in another writing program attendee's, Thalia, orbit. After Oxford, Jane has lost contact with Thalia and after receiving an email about Thalia's new book and her upcoming appearance at a publishing event, Jane decides to go, regardless of the fact that she has no invitation, nothing to get her there or see her through once she goes. Obsessed with Thalia, Jane has no desire to let her get away again. 

Engaging from the start, this one kept my attention despite the repetition in much of the story. 

Repetition aside, it kept me turning the pages. 

But… I found the ending far too neat and far too unsatisfying. This was an unhappy example of 'what I was expecting' versus 'what I got'. 

I'm rating this one at three stars - I did enjoy it but for the ending. 

This was my first novel by the author and I do plan on reading more of her work. 

Thank you to Berkley and NetGalley for the DRC!


Some friends—and friendships—are worth killing for in this dark, twisty suspense novel by national bestselling author Jesse Q. Sutanto.

Jane is unhappy.  

A struggling midlist writer whose novels barely command four figures, she feels trapped in an underwhelming marriage, just scraping by to pay a crippling Bay Area mortgage for a house—a life—she's never really wanted. 

There's only ever been one person she cared about, one person who truly understood her: Thalia. Jane's best and only friend nearly a decade ago during their Creative Writing days at Oxford. It was the only good year of Jane’s life—cobblestones and books and damp English air, heady wine and sweet cider and Thalia, endless Thalia. But then one night ruined everything. The blood-soaked night that should have bound Thalia to Jane forever but instead made her lose her completely. Thalia disappeared without a trace, and Jane has been unable to find her since.

Until now. 

Because there she is, her name at the top of the 
New York Times bestseller list: A Most Pleasant Death by Thalia Ashcroft. When she discovers a post from Thalia on her website about attending a book convention in New York City in a week—“Can’t wait to see you there!”—Jane can’t wait either. 

She’ll go to New York City, too, credit card bill be damned. And this time, she will do things right. Jane won’t lose Thalia again.
