SIX MONTHS TO KILL by Enzo Bartoli
Regis has just been told he has six months to live when he is approached by a young woman who wants him to kill someone who is ‘bad’.
Regis gets sucked in by the woman’s charisma. He’s lonely and is facing a boring, painful end to his life. He likes her and maybe he falls in love with her a little? Regis agrees to do the job and so begins a trail of murder where Regis ends the lives of several people who he is told are the vermin of society.
Of course, all is not as it seems. When the police become involved, Regis finds himself getting in deeper. Alongside this, there is the miracle cure for his cancer, which his own doctor offers him ‘off the record.’ Is there a possibility he might be cured?
The best thing about the story was the set-up. What would we do if we knew we would die in six months? This makes it intriguing to follow Regis and his thoughts.
A bit more character development would have made the story more believable for me. Regis was a bit took quick and easy in his decisions. He’s highly intelligent but he’s a loner and was easily persuaded to cross the line.
This was an easy read, and it was entertaining and original.
My thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this book. This is my honest review.
