Harry works in the Human Resources department of a capital venture company, but he desperately wants to create a best-selling app. As he and his wife discuss his upcoming pitch, they joke about creating an app called "Stranger" based on the movie "Strangers on a Train". The app would allow people to post who they want murdered and if they matched with someone, they would have to kill each other's target. When an overexuberant waiter overhears them, he develops the "Stranger" app and all hell breaks loose.


This book annoyed me in so many ways. The main character was a narcissist to the extreme. The waiter grated on my every nerve. The voice that the narrator chose for the waiter was terrible and I really disliked listening to it. The way the story concluded was fulfilling at least. I probably will not read this author again.
