"The electrifying debut thriller that asks the question: To save the one you love, is there any price you wouldn't pay? His wife is sick. He needs $200,000 to save her. A mysterious man offers to give him the money with just one catch: He has to murder someone to get it. Gary Foster's life is finally heading in the right direction. After years of trying, his wife, Beth, is pregnant, and he recently opened a business with his brother. But one phone call changes everything ... After collapsing suddenly, Beth has been rushed to the hospital. Tests reveal a devastating diagnosis: an inoperable brain tumor. Their only hope is an expensive experimental treatment available abroad, with a cost that's out of their reach. And Beth's time is running out ... Then a strange man approaches Gary and offers the money he needs, on one condition: that he kill someone, no questions asked. End one life to save another. In this nail-biting debut novel of domestic suspense, one man makes a choice that forces him to confront the darkest reaches of his soul and betray those closest to him. As he's swept up in a nightmare of escalating violence, he must question his own morality--and determine just how far he's willing to go to save the woman he loves"--… (mer)

With a nod to Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train, Killer Choice asks the question just how far would you go to save the person you love? Gary is living the American dream with the love of his life Beth. After many years of infertility they are finally expecting a baby which will complete there dream of happiness. Unexpectedly Beth suffers a medical complication and finds out she has a cancerous brain tumor that will kill her shortly unless they can afford $200,000 for experimental medical treatment in Germany. Out of options to pay for the treatment Gary receives an offer for the money. All he has to do is kill a complete stranger.

This was great story. While the writing wasn't the most elegant, Patricia Highsmith wrote a timeless classic with Stranger on a Train, this book nevertheless has it's own merits. The book keeps you strapped in on a nerve wracking ride that never let's up. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next and I could never predict which way the story was going to go. There were quite a few surprises in store. The whole time I was asking myself would I do if this happened to me and the suspenseful plot kept me glued to the pages. Tom Hunt kept me wrapped up in his crazy thrill ride until the last page. ( )

Oh the webs we weave when we first practice to deceive!
Tho i felt that the characters lacked depth...needed some oomph!...i enjoyed the story itself. And for a debut novel?? Touche' i say and ignore the naysayers !
Most of us would say there does exist a line we would not cross, even under the most dire situations. But wait, someone you dearly love is in a life/death situation and there is a desperate need for money.
Murder? Cover-up? Lies? Would ya do it all/ any? Put yourself in the shoes of Gary Foster and see what you think. Reading this book made me truly be honest with myself.... ( )

What would you do if you found out that the love of your life had a terminal illness? What moral boundaries would you cross? Those are the question that arises from this easy read by Tom Hunt. Traipsing in territory better covered by Harlen Coben, Hunt tells the tell of a middle aged man who discoveres that his wife has a terminal brain tumor, but if he can raise 200k there is a treatment that may save her life. Killer Choice is a decent weekend read, that maybe will give you a few things to think about. ( )
