#murderfunding by Gretchen McNeil is about Becca, who’s struggling after losing her mom. A couple of days later, she encounters a girl named Seth, who tells her that her dead mother was none other than Molly Mauler, one of the hired serial killers on Alcatraz 2.0. After a new reality show, WHO WANTS TO BE A PANIAC?, is announced, Becca and Stef go to audition together, both on different missions. The show is said to be a follow up to Alcatraz 2.0 without any of the real blood and death. Becca is trying to prove her mom’s innocence, while Stef is trying to prove that Becca’s mom was indeed Molly Mauler. But the reality show proves deadlier than it seems when people are killed, and Becca ends up being caught up in the middle of it.
Out of the three books in this series, this one was my least favourite. The characters are really bland and don’t have much of a personality. The story was incredibly slow-paced, and the plot was really uninteresting until the last couple of chapters. I don’t think this book added to the series in any way. The only thing I liked was the fact that it went back and forth between the main characters from the last book and the main characters of this book. Honestly, if you’re reading this series, I would recommend skipping this book and reading the other two because this one does absolutely nothing to add to the trilogy and is poorly written.
