How to turn a dead woman into a mermaid?
Neil Preston is part of an online group where the members compete in performing perfect murders each month. This month’s challenge is to, as fast as possible, create a scene with a mermaid.
Neil believed he’d found the perfect victim, he believed he finally would beat all the other members, but then a black cat ran across the road and jinxed everything! Can he win the challenge despite cats, uncooperative mermaids, and old men snooping around?

I’m loving this series so much. This, the second story, was so much more interesting. I got what I was looking for, get to know more of the contestants, which was magnificent. I don’t really know if this is a willing pattern about the main characters, but so far, they both were very unlikable. I don’t know which of them to dislike the most, maybe the price will go to Neil because of how misogynistic he is, but also because he is a little impulsive. Sure, he seems to be a little smarter than we can give him credit to but he might ruin everything for acting impulsively. I can’t wait to know the other characters.
