Perry's Killer Playlist

Author: Joe Schreiber 
Pages: 224 
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin 
Format: Hardcover (ARC) 
My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Summary (from Goodreads): When Perry ends up in Venice on a European tour with his band Inchworm, he can’t resist a visit to Harry’s Bar, where Gobi told him she’d meet him someday. The last time he saw Gobi, five people were assassinated one crazy night in New York City. Well . . . Gobi shows up, and once again Perry is roped into a wild, nonstop thrill ride with a body count. Double crossings, kidnappings, CIA agents, arms dealers, boat chases in Venetian canals, and a shootout in the middle of a Santa Claus convention ensue.



Disclaimer: I received a copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

My Summary: Perry's life has been almost perfect since his wild night with exchange-student-turned-assassin Gobi. He has the perfect girlfriend, a happy family, and his band is starting to really take off. 

In fact, Inchworm is set to go on a European tour. Wandering around Venice, he makes a choice: he's going to visit the bar he and Gobi promised to meet at. What happens next leads Perry on another wild ride around Europe with the deadly assassin he may - or may not - still be in love with.

My Thoughts:  Another great read from Joe Schreiber! I didn't think I'd enjoy this installment as much as I did the first, but I was pleasantly surprised - Perry and Gobi's second adventure is just as fast-paced and action-packed as the first! 

Schreiber's books may be a little on the short side, but he definitely knows how to pack one heck of a story into those pages. I was so pumped to read Perry's Killer Playlist after scanning the summary and finding out it was set in Europe - there's something so incredibly badass about a gun battle staged in a Parisian cafe, mais non? 

And, like in the first installment, Schreiber begins every chapter with a song title (something this music hoarder really loved!).

Final Thoughts: I recommend this to readers who enjoy action-packed YA with a little romance thrown in - male readers will definitely enjoy it!
