Review: All Good Deeds, Lucy Kendall Book 1

By Stacy Green

Available on: Amazon, Audible, and Barnes and Noble.

Overview:

Blurb: Lucy Kendall has merrily skipped over the “thou shall not kill” commandment and taken her form of justice farther than Batman ever does. Using a hacker, a chemist, some cyanide, and really good timing, she’s taken to “taking out the trash”. She only murders people who deserve it, in her book; pedophiles and rapists that were freed by a flawed system. Lucy is about to up her body count to four when Chris Hale sits down next to her in a bar and asks her if he can kill along with her. Things only get worse from there and now Lucy has found herself trapped in a world where old grudges, loyalty, and luck will be tested to their breaking point.
