    1. okay, this book is not four stars like proust is four stars this earns its rating because after reading a series of ho hum and meh meh teen books this one was actually pretty good.except for the epilogue, which made me a little embarrassed ungood s kind of a ghost story, it s kind of a mystery, it s kind of a story about a creepy little kid, it s kind of a coming of age story but it works it may be just that i read it in about an hour and a half, so my reading didn t get interrupted, but it felt [...]


    2. After reading The Rules of Survivaland Impossible, I have become quite a fan of Nancy Werlin, and I found The Killer s Cousin to be another interesting book from this author The main character s struggle with his past and his strange and difficult present lead to an interesting story with strong character development Although some readers will predict part of the ending, the final scenes do offer some surprises and a satisfying and hopeful conclusion to a fairly sad story.


    3. I love Nancy Werlin Her ability to write different genres always amazes me The Rules of Survival severed my heartstrings, Double Helix was a decent science fiction novel, and Killer s Cousin was thrilling and suspenseful.Seventeen year old David Yaffe feels guilty for the death of his girlfriend, Emily despite the jury acquitting him and proving his innocence He decides to move in with his aunt and uncle in Massachusetts, where he resides in their attic apartment Strange things are lurking in th [...]


    4. Nancy Werlin picks another interesting topic to address in her book This novel is a killer s story, a story of a teenager who was acquitted of his girl friend s murder and now has to attempt to start fresh in a new town, among new people Once he moves in with his aunt, uncle, and cousin, he is forced not only to relive his guilt, shame and regret, but theirs as well, because they have their own tragedies to face The Killer s Cousin is a skillfully done thriller which in spite of its predictabili [...]


    5. Well this is one of those mood whiplash books And it does it perfectly view spoiler Lily, the titular killer s cousin, is the nastiest little witch ever And not in the I m so much better than you mean little girl sort of way, but in the literally terrifying what is she going to do next sort of way She s clever, scheming, and downright evil at times towards David, the main character who was just acquitted for murder of his girlfriend I think it ended up being a manslaughter case, it was never mad [...]


    6. 3 1 2 stars I enjoyed The Killer s Cousin quite a bit It was a very quick read I think the author did a great job of creating tension between characters that you could actually feel Lilly was a creepy kid and although I figured out her secret right away it didn t spoil the book for me The character of David was well done I empathized with him I probably would have given this 4 stars if not for the telepathic type link he suddenly develops with his cousin near the end of the book Where did that e [...]

    8. I did not like this book as much as I thought I would I like mystery books so I like the story, but the graphic details were too much for me David is the main character and he has to finish high school at a different school after he was found not guilty of killing his girlfriend They had to move to a new town to live with his mean aunt and quiet uncle His cousin Lily also lived there I didn t really like her character because I found her weird and annoying Then he finds out his other cousin had [...]


    9. I have discovered that physcological thrillers are just not my type Hence the one star rating, but I have a few other reason for that rating as well, which I shall attempt to briefly explain.I should probably start off with my reason for reading this book in the first place Fact is, I was interested in the author s works, and so being the bookaholic that I am, I checked out all of the titles my library had by that author And so this being the least interesting looking of them all, I decided to r [...]

    12. 3.5 of 5 starsAfter being acquitted of killing his girlfriend, David moves to Boston for a fresh start From the moment he arrives at his passive uncle s house he feels unwelcome by his angry aunt and creepy eleven year old cousin Lily David soon learns that his older cousin committed suicide in the bathroom of his attic room, meanwhile Lily s obvious hatred for David continues to grow.I read KILLER S COUSIN in one sitting which means it was good enough to hold my interest, but not good enough to [...]


    13. The Killer s Cousin Playaway By Nancy Werlin Read by Nick PodehlThe Killer s Cousin is actually quite a surprising story From the title I had an image of gore and creepy killers but I was quite wrong David has to repeat his last year of high school living with his aunt, uncle, and younger cousin Lily because of what happened last year He lives in the attic where his older cousin who mysteriously died used to live, suffers through Lily s awful tricks, and begins to unbury the secrets that have em [...]


    14. This is of a 4.5 star book than a 5 star read Who knows, as time goes on, I may even bump it up to a five star book.Werlin crafts and intense psychological thriller in The Killer s Cousin The novel is narrated by David Yaffe, a young man who is acquitted of killing his girlfriend When I started the novel, I didn t want to like him I didn t want to believe However, as the novel unfolds, I found myself feeling sympathy for David and the emotional aftermath of his girlfriend s death and the trial [...]


    15. A tight, intense psychological thriller involving family secrets, family dysfunction, murder, and redemption The title can refer to at least three characters in the book, and their lives intersect and intertwine First person narrative keeps the tension going, as does the slow reveal of what really happened Everyone except the artist renter is going through PTSD, and how they manage it is part of the story.The characters are complex and readers can have some good discussions about motive, truth, [...]


    16. Creepy and atmospheric and always suspenseful, this is the story of a young man who has been acquitted of murdering his girlfriend but who needs to get out of his hometown for obvious reasons He goes to live with his aunt, uncle, and cousin in Boston Turns out his cousin Lily is the creepiest sixth grader ever.Outstanding choice for book clubs for teenagers a compelling read which has a LOT to talk about I would not use with students younger than eighth grade due to implications about sexual act [...]


    17. I can t say that I hate this book but I don t like it It s a well written story and has great mystery to it however it just isn t something I really enjoyed The whole book was depressing and I predicted what happened long before it tells the reader Lily, the little girl is creepy and a brat and David the protagonist is too much of a push over and the way he reacts to Lily doesn t seem realistic Content some language, violence, disturbing behavior from the child.


    18. It s a really good book about lilly The eleven year old girl and David The guy who accidently killed his girlfriend David finds out a whole lot about lilly in the story with a great ending I thought it wasn t going to be the best of book but it turned out to be really good It s not for someone in grade school unless there parents are so positive that it should be fine.



    19. This is an old beat up paperback with a cutout in the cover I had to wonder what this was about Then I read a few pages and realized if it had been gussied up with a nice cover and I had gotten it from the library I would be all in because the story was compelling there is at least one mystery presented at the outset Also this is written first person I love a book where I know what the protagonist is thinking and dreaming I don t care if he is unhinged, a drifter, a grafter, or the deacon of the [...]


    20. Este libro es una novela de misterio y suspenso, un poco predecible pero con una narraci n sencilla y que atrapa El final el cambio en los personajes no me termina de parecer cre ble pero se salva





    21. This book had me hooked though the whole thing The plot is incredibly intense and heavy, it s hard to put it down The characters are well developed and have real depth to them, you spend most of the book loving to hate them and then come around the other side felling strong connections with each of them by the end This book really makes you think and want to go deeper and deeper into the plot Overall, very enthralling and very well written, one of my favorite books.


    22. This was an okay book I was into it in the beginning than I was by the end I m glad that David finally found peace, and that he was able to help Lily in the way that he did But Lily and her parents especially the mother, David s aunt were all impossible to sympathize with Delgado was a great character I m not sure why everyone automatically thought he was a neo Nazi Are white guys not allowed to have shaved heads any At any rate, it was good and suspenseful for a one time read I especially like [...]


    23. 17 Aug 2013I ve started reading this book since last week I think that it s an interesting book and it s really caught my attention At the beginning of the book the writer told us the setting, the situations and the problem that the main character were facing with However, the writer doesn t gave much information and some of the part were confusing I think this is because the writer wanted us to figure it out by ourselves while we continues reading the book 24 Aug 2013As I continue reading, I fe [...]


    24. I really liked this book because it was funny, sad and so much then I thought it would be I would really like to read by Nancy Werlin I thought this book wasn t going to be good the I read it and it was awesome.
