✧Review✧ The Kind Worth Killing ✩9/10✩
This is a thriller that just kept on giving. It’s one where I don’t want to say too much, but it is a delightfully twisted story. When it came to the characters I had such a hard time figuring out who I disliked more, which definitely made things interesting.
What really set this one apart for me were the twists. Now, some may think that the twists are easy to guess. However, it was the execution of the twists that had me shocked and impressed. As a thriller lover I found Swanson’s delivery refreshing and exciting! You may think you know where the story is going, and you may be right, but this book still has some surprises up its sleeve.
Thanks to everyone who recommended this book to me, especially my brother, y’all were right...it’s amazing!
Synopsis: “On a night flight from London to Boston, Ted Severson meets the stunning and mysterious Lily Kintner. Sharing one too many martinis, the strangers begin to play a game of truth, revealing very intimate details about themselves. Ted talks about his marriage that’s going stale and his wife Miranda, who he’s sure is cheating on him. But their game turns a little darker when Ted jokes that he could kill Miranda for what she’s done. Lily, without missing a beat, says calmly, “I’d like to help.” After all, some people are the kind worth killing, like a lying, stinking, cheating spouse. . . .Back in Boston, Ted and Lily’s twisted bond grows stronger as they begin to plot Miranda's demise. But there are a few things about Lily’s past that she hasn’t shared with Ted, namely her experience in the art and craft of murder, a journey that began in her very precocious youth. Suddenly these co-conspirators are embroiled in a chilling game of cat-and-mouse.”
