What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

The sharp, smart and outrageously funny finale in the Alvie Knightly trilogy, brought to you by Penguin.

Once, serial killer Alvie Knightly was living the dream.
Unlimited cash.
An Italian getaway.
A hot new boyfriend . . .
How the mighty fall.

One year - and one very unfortunate incident - later, Alvie is homeless, surviving on meal deals, and counting her dwindling pennies.

It's time for one last hit, and if anyone can pull it off - in six-inch heels - it's Alvie.

But if she's to succeed in her mission to avenge her ex, win back her money and secure her future, she'll have to face her most terrifying enemy yet . . .

Her past.
