Nine Lives: A Novel

We rated this book:


Nine names on a list. Six men, three women. Each leading separate lives. Their only thing in common is the fact that they have been marked for death. Alison Horne is a kept woman living in New York and dating a septuagenarian businessman. Arthur Kruse is an oncology nurse mired in the grief of a recent tragedy. Jessica Winslow is an FBI agent serving in the Albany Field Office. Jay Coates is a wannabe actor and a budding psychopath. When the list arrives, most of those on it are nonplussed. However, when one of the listed is found dead, concern begins to grow. Who would wish harm on this eclectic group of people? Will the internet provide answers? Is it worth reaching out to a name on the list and making a connection based on macabre circumstances? Will anyone live to see their name not scratched out?

Peter Swanson knows how to keep a captive audience riveted. Each successive book he’s written has held its own in thrilling his readers. Once the list reaches the first person, you will find yourself hooked on a whodunit coupled with a gradually unfolding tragedy. It is a book that will render you speechless and sleepless when finished.
