The Bullet: MLS is the story of young lovers who become serial killers in the interest of ridding society of predators, one bad actor at a time.

About the Author
Most Likely to Succeed is Blake Carver’s first novel. Though no books came before it, it was written in one strong push over 10 weeks, and edited in three. Inspiration and discipline were blessedly in abundance and a complete tale came together relatively quickly. A second novel is on the way for release in July. If you have story or author questions, ask Blake directly at email@IvyLeagueKillers.com. To write at length, which you are invited to do, visit the blog at http://HydeCarver.Tripod.com/blog/.
