The Kind Worth Killing // the review

What this book is about?

"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. Ted and his wife were a mismatch from the start—he the rich businessman, she the artistic free spirit—a contrast that once inflamed their passion, but has now become a cliché.
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, one they both cannot survive . . . with a shrewd and very determined detective on their tail." excerpt from

What do I think?

- this book was told from different characters, so you have a broad sense of what's going on in every main character. I like that.
- this is my first book by Peter Swanson and I love his writing style. I will definitely check out his other book
- this book is a great mystery that kept me guessing through out the book
- great plot, love the narrative style and incredible characters development
- Lily is definitely one sick girl, I would love to hate her but I don't. I understand her.
- In a way this is definitely about revenge 
- if you love the Girl on a Train than you are going to love this book

I highly recommend this book. It's so so so good!
