Book Review: The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson


Title: The Kind Worth Killing
Author: Peter Swanson

Page Count: 423


‘When his flight gets delayed, Ted Severson meets Lily, a magnetic stranger, in the airport bar. In the netherworld of international travel and too many Martinis, he confesses his darkest secrets, about his wife’s infidelity and how he wishes her dead. Without missing a beat she offers to help him carry out the task…’

Writing Style: I found it slightly confusing because each chapter swapped between different characters’ points of view which is something I don’t really like but other than that I found the words to flow seamlessly and I very quickly got into it.

Overall Thoughts: I was expecting this book to be very dark and a bit gory but it wasn’t all but it didn’t need it, the storytelling was very good with descriptions about what’s happening in the present by Ted and Lilly’s account of her past and the things she’s been through. I really liked this book, especially because it managed to surprise me a few times which isn’t easy to do because I’m always predicting what will happen next.
