Review – I Am Not a Serial Killer, Mr. Monster, I Don’t Want to Kill You, The Devil’s Only Friend, Over Your Dead Body, and Nothing Left to Lose

The Complete John Wayne Cleaver Series: I Am Not a Serial Killer, Mr.  Monster, I Don't Want to Kill You, Devil's Only Friend, Over Your Dead  Body, Nothing Left to Lose by

Dan Wells‘ John Cleaver books are chilling. They straddle a line with one foot in abnormal psychology that can exist in our world, and one foot in a world of supernatural villains that are both evil and tragically understandable. The first book was gripping, the second had a killer second line, and they don’t lose momentum until the curtain drops on book six with a satisfying resolution to the sequence.

John Cleaver is a teenager who works in the family mortuary, who is almost certainly a psychopath, and who definitely has stumbled onto a serial killer operating in his nondescript small American town.

Bonus, there’s a novella snuck in between books 3 and 4 too (but I was only able to find an Amazon link, sorry)

If it sounds good to you, check it out. If you’ve got a local independent bookseller, please give them your business in this difficult time. If it works, try using the Bookshop link, which tries to support independent booksellers. If your local library has it on the shelf, support libraries!

If Amazon is the what works for you to get books in the pandemic, use Amazon, that’s okay too!
