“Kate Morgenroth’s debut novel, ‘Kill Me First’, is a wholly fresh and absorbing work ... [The killer] gathers the residents of a nursing home together, pairs them up, and then asks each to choose whom he should kill, the questionee or their partner. All conform to expectations (kill the other guy!) except one woman named Sarah, who says (natch) ‘kill me first’.”
