Perry’s Killer Playlist

If there’s one thing Joe Schreiber does well, it’s capturing the element of wicked fun. Perry’s Killer Playlist brings the same entertaining intensity of Au Revior Crazy European Chick but in a whole new chapter of the adventure. This time Perry is on a Eurpean tour with his band Inchworm, and things are about to get interesting.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you dated an assassin? Well for Perry, this is sort of the unfortunate circumstance of his life. There’s this girl named Gobi who he sort of has a crush on but won’t admit it. She’s special. Of course it’s special in that she’s a trained killer who sort of kidnapped him so she’d have someone to drive her around while she killed people and ultimately got his house blown up. But hey, love is blind, right? Regardless, Perry has a thing for this deadly femme fatale. Alas, things don’t go quite so well for Perry in this chapter of the adventure. Especially when Gobi runs into Perry’s new girlfriend. Long story short, gunshots are fired, people are running for their lives, there are Bourne Identity commando spies attacking left and right, Santageddon happens, and chaos runs amok at every turn.

If you’ve read Au Revoir Crazy European Chick, you have an idea of how things go. Joe Schreiber has a knack for turning out great, intense stories that run fast and exciting. You’ll only need one evening to churn through Perry’s Killer Playlist, but it’ll be a blast. All of the fun that was captured in the first book continues in this one. Even if you haven’t read Au Revoir Crazy European Chick, you’ll still be able to pick up on enough of the backstory to not miss out. The prose and storytelling is both witty and engaging. Best of all, Joe starts the book off with a terrific hook and keeps the pace flowing throughout. There’s just the right amount of character chemistry, action, and internal dialog. With story elements similar to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series, Perry’s Killer Playlist reads like a cinematic tour de force. It’s intense and engrossing.

I highly recommend this book to any Star Wars fan who would like to see a different side to Joe Schreiber. Joe is a truly gifted writer who can do a lot more than gory horror stories. The humor, the characters, and the off the wall scenes have a perfect balance. Plus there’s a fun little tuckerism with Star Wars Del Rey Editor Erich Schoeneweiss that made me laugh out loud when I came across it. If you’re looking for a quick, fun, thrill ride story, then look no further. This story is cover to cover entertainment and a earns a well deserved five out of five metal bikinis.
