The Kind Worth Killing

by Peter Swanson


This is my kind of thriller. Multi voices with so many twists that I got dizzy.

The story starts in an airport. Two people, a man and a woman, meet in the bar while waiting for their plane and they share a drink. Stories get told and the man tells the woman that his wife is having an affair and he wants to kill her. The woman tell him that she will help him.

That’s all you’re getting. The narrative is closely written and as I said before, alternating chapters allow the characters to tell their own story – and their past stories. They are not characters that you can sympathise with to any great extent, but, boy, do they keep you hooked. Just when you think you know what is going to happen, the rug gets pulled from your feet and you end up in a muddled heap. As for the ending!!!!!

If you like books like ‘Gone Girl’. Give this a try. A super read that will keep you guessing.
