あらすじ・解説

A devious tale of psychological suspense so irresistible that it prompts Entertainment Weekly to ask, “Is The Kind Worth Killing the next Gone Girl?” 

From one of the hottest new thriller writers, Peter Swanson, a name you may not know yet (but soon will), this is his breakout novel in the best-selling tradition of Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train - now a major movie directed by Agnieszka Holland. 

In a tantalizing set-up reminiscent of Patricia Highsmith’s classic Strangers on a Train.... 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.

Ending is disappointing

I loved the book as I was reading it, carefully following the twists and turns until the last 5 minutes. Then I had to listen again, because I surely missed something. Nope, the ending was not satisfying at all. It’s as if the author just couldn’t make that final turn so he left it up in the air, a cliffhanger. Ugh!!

Great read

Excellent story that came together with a twist at the end to allow the reader to use their imagination. I wasn’t excited about Tess voice. Thought he sounded older than he was

The Kind Worth Killing

The book was excellent. Kept me on the edge of my seat For any of you who love psychological thrillers, this book is for you.. I found the main character amusing and devious. However, oddly understanding why she did what she did. There weren’t any big surprises in the book until the end, when it left my jaw open with shock and also a grin on my face. The narration was excellent. I highly recommend this book!

Great book and narrator.

No Spoilers. This was a very good book that I highly recommend. I don't know why someone didn't like the ending and called it a cliffhanger, as I thought it fit with the rest of the story, was not predictable and the authors intentions were very clear.. Use your credit on this one for sure!

Very Good

My first time reading Peter Swanson and he did not disappoint. I had sort of decided that I knew where this was going. Boy was I wrong. Wasn’t crazy about the ending but it was still a great read.

Great story but had a tough time with the male voice

The story was pretty gripping. It had me hooked from the beginning. But the man who voiced “Ted” sounded like Bob Newhart and I couldn’t get that image out of my head.

A real mystery

What a great mystery. Kept me engaged and guessing on what would be next! It had it all murder, blood and guts, deceitful lowdown characters, and graphic sex, much more than you want to know.
