Eleanor Oliphant meets Killing Eve in this darkly funny and gloriously unhinged New Zealand bestseller.


'Satire at its best' ELEANOR CATTON, author of Birnam Wood'Outrageous, comic, disturbingly timely' THE GUARDIANA stubborn slacker is spurred to radical climate action by a snarky teenager with big ideas in this bold, darkly funny and brilliantly bizarre debut. Thirty-something Alice has an IQ of 159 (almost a genius) and lives at home with her mother, with whom she communicates only by Morse code. Meanwhile, the climate is in crisis. Wealthy immigrants are flocking to New Zealand for shelter, stealing land, driving up food prices and taking over. When Alice meets attractive wealthugee Pablo, she thinks she has found a way out of her dull existence.

But then in walks his teenage daughter, Erika, an actual genius with impeccable eye makeup, and Alice finds herself drawn into action of the most radical – and dangerous – kind. Just what is a slacker to do? By turns sinister and hilarious, She’s a Killer is the story of a reluctant genius who is drawn into radical action as the world falls apart around her.
