About the Book

Jazz will stop at nothing to save her brother.

Their foster mother, Carol, has always been fanatical, but with Jazz grown up and out of the house, Carol takes a dangerous turn that threatens thirteen-year-old Joaquin’s life. Over and over, child services fails to intervene, and Joaquin is running out of time.

Then Jazz gets a blocked call from someone offering a solution. There are others like her—people the law has failed. They’ve formed an underground network of “helpers,” each agreeing to eliminate the abuser of another. They’re taking back their power and leaving a trail of bodies throughout Los Angeles—dubbed the Blackbird Killings. If Jazz joins them, they’ll take care of Carol for good.

All she has to do is kill a stranger.

Critical Praise

"Heard expertly blends nearly nonstop thrills and some genuinely surprising twists with spot-on social commentary... Just try to put this one down." –Kirkus Reviews

"A chilling, clever plot combined with highly original characters makes Wendy Heard's THE KILL CLUB a surefire winner. Relentlessly paced, elegantly written, diabolically twisted, you will not be able to put it down. Heard is a true talent." -J.T. Ellison, USA Today bestselling author of Lie to Me

"Jazz has a gritty, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo vibe, and she drives the action in this full-throttle thriller all the way to the deliciously dark end." - Kimberly Belle, USA Today bestselling author of Dear Wife

"Some stories are dark, some stories are fun, and some are both. Wendy Heard's THE KILL CLUB is a deliciously sinister thriller that turns ordinary people into villains... or heroes, depending on which side you're on. Heard's fresh voice makes this compelling novel a roaring read from start to finish." -Jennifer Hillier, author of Jar of Hearts

"How far will you go for agency, love, or freedom? In this Strangers on a Train world, the women of LA have an answer to the testosterone-fueled black-market justice of Fight Club, and no one is safe. Explosive, compelling, and one hell of a good time, do not miss Wendy Heard's propulsive dive into revenge noir." -Mindy Mejia, author of Leave No Trace

"An emotional rollercoaster ride...utterly genius." -Carissa Lynch, USA TODAY bestselling author of My Sister Is Missing

"AMAZING . . . One dark, addictive thrill ride of a book. It'll make you think about how far you would go to save someone you love . . . and make you a little paranoid about that stranger standing too close to you at Trader Joe's." -Kathleen Barber, author of Follow Me

"The protagonist, Jazz, is dark, gritty, and determined, with a wicked sense of humor and an occasional tender side, but she certainly doesn't need anyone to save her . . . A knock-out thriller. Buckle up; you're in for one hell of a ride." -Hannah Mary McKinnon, author of Her Secret Son

"A nonstop nail-biter . . . a must-read thriller." -Diana Urban, author of All Your Twisted Secrets

"A breathless, chilling adventure . . . intricate and masterful plotting, surprises around every corner, and an ending that chilled me to the bone." -Megan Collins, author of The Winter Sister -
