WELCOME TO THE NEAR FUTURE, where good and honest 8/18 citizens can enjoy watching the executions of society’s most infamous convicted felons, streaming live on The Postman app from the suburbanized prison island Alcatraz 2.0.
When eighteen-year-old Dee Guerrera wakes up in a haze, lying on the ground of a dimly lit warehouse, she realizes she’s about to be the next victim of the app. Knowing hardened criminals are getting a taste of their own medicine in this place is one thing, but Dee refuses to roll over and die for a heinous crime she didn’t commit. Can Dee and her newly formed posse, the Death Row Breakfast Club, prove she’s innocent before she ends up wrongfully murdered for the world to see? Or will The Postman’s cast of executioners kill them off one by one?
|** spoiler alert ** HOLY SHITBALLS. THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!
I usually don’t post spoilers on my reviews because, well, i hate spoilers. BUT OMG. DEATH BY POTTERY WHEEL? MOLLY THE MAULER? Just some of the gruesomely AWESOME THINGS you will find in #Murdertrending.
This is a fantastic murder mystery (heavy on the murder), set in the near future where anyone who has been sent to Alcatraz 2.0 is fair game to the serial killers there. They mete out justice in any way they see fit – all of them with strange and wonderful motifs. and of course, it’s all captured on camera for the viewers of the Postman app to watch and rate!
It was so much fun to read this book. it’s heavy on the snark -(which is always a good thing in my book), and while it’s definitely full of horrific horrors and ghastly deeds — you can’t help but laugh your way through this book. it’s one of the best books i’ve ever read. i hope that the ending means that there will be another.
