If you want to read my reviews of all ten 2017 Locus Award novella finalists, then go to my blog which you'll find on my author profile: Good Feeling: seven short stories
It has an interesting premise and you don't know what it is for a while, which is a good use of tension/curiosity.
It was well written, and kept me turning pages.
The only issue I have with Scalzi's recent work is that it is all too short. He's become more of a short-story author, but I really really enjoyed his full-length books like the Old Man's War series.
I was disappointed by the price tag, severely disappointed by the length, but actually more than a little intrigued by the premise. Maybe he'll turn this exercise into something with more substance.
Scalzi comes up with a truly unique concept with regards to killing: it's almost impossible to permanently murder someone.
He then takes this idea to the logical conclusion that makes this a truly entertaining story.
He flips the concept of The Killer into a dull service-level job, one that is still distasteful to most people. And yet he makes his protagonist interesting and sympathetic.
I highly recommend this book.
