Thank you, NetGalley, for the chance to read and review How to Kill Men and Get Away With It by Katy Brent.

I can’t believe I’ve gone all these years without really getting into thrillers and mysteries! But between bookstagram and the access to many books on NetGalley, that is starting to change.

Katy Brent, and her debut How to Kill Ml/en and Get Away With It, is one of those fantastic debuts I’ve come across via NetGalley. It came out on the 12th of October and was published by HQ Stories, a Harper Collins imprint. It’s 384 pages long and is a murder thriller/ romantic comedy.

When Kity Collins accidentally kills a man, she doesn’t think she’ll like it, or even do it again. But as she comes across men who have harmed women or intend to harm them, she becomes even better at getting away with murder. As Kitty keeps on killing, we realize she’s not the only psychopath around…

How To Kill Men and Get Away With It is perfect for the age of Gone Girl, Killing Eve, and Promising Young Women. It’s about dealing with men when traditional forms of justice are hard on women. Kitty isn’t a protagonist you love because of her personality; she’s an influencer because of her father’s money. Her life has no real purpose outside of murder. But the book is fun! It’s good to see her hunt men on tinder and take revenge for what they’ve done to others. It’s also funny to see those bodies go into the meat supply; you can’t trust what’s in processed meat these days. The stalker element and how that played out was excellent! It made the book a little over the top, which suited it and made it a perfect light read with some coffee!


Meet Kitty Collins.

Have you ever walked home at night, keys in hand, ready to throw a punch in self-defence? That’s how it all started. The killing spree, I mean.

I sort of tripped into this role… Literally. The first one was following me. That guy from the nightclub who wouldn’t leave me alone. I pushed him, he stumbled, and fell onto his own broken wine bottle. Oops. It was such a waste of a good house white.

But now I can’t seem to stop and nor do I want to… I’ve got a taste for revenge and quite frankly, I’m killing it.

A deliciously dark, hilariously twisted story about friendship, love, and murder. Fans of My Sister the Serial KillerHow to Kill Your Family and Killing Eve will love this wickedly clever novel!
