The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson
4+ out of 5 stars -- "Be mindful of death."
Absolutely riveting thriller full of completely deranged psychopaths with murder on their minds. This one is twisted and unpredictable with characters you can lovingly loathe. The chapters shift in point of view as the narrative unfolds -- teasing the reader to stick glued to the pages. This is definitely one you'll want to read in one sitting!
Ted Severson, married man, meets Lily Kintner late one night in an airport bar. That's when the trouble begins... Alcohol consumed, secrets spilled, plans made. But all of the players in this complicated scheme have not been entirely truthful, and things fall apart for them in completely unexpected ways.
Great writing and complex characters propel this suspenseful novel to a satisfying conclusion that might send a few chills down your spine. Recommended for anyone who enjoys surprises in a very entertaining second book by this author. I have THE GIRL WITH A CLOCK FOR A HEART up next on my Kindle Fire.
Thank you to William Morrow Books and Harper Collins for the e-book ARC to review.
