‘Extremely hard to put down!’ SOPHIE HANNAH

‘Chilling and hypnotically suspenseful … an instant classic.’ LEE CHILD

‘Hello there.’
I looked at the pale, freckled hand on the back of the empty bar seat next to me in the business class lounge of Heathrow airport, then up into the stranger’s face.
‘Do I know you?’

Delayed in London, Ted Severson meets a woman at the airport bar. Over cocktails they tell each other rather more than they should, and a dark plan is hatched – but are either of them being serious, could they actually go through with it and, if they did, what would be their chances of getting away with it?

Back in Boston, Ted’s wife Miranda is busy site managing the construction of their dream home, a beautiful house out on the Maine coastline. But what secrets is she carrying and to what lengths might she go to protect the vision she has of her deserved future?

A sublimely plotted novel of trust and betrayal, The Kind Worth Killing will keep you gripped and guessing late into the night.

Critic Reviews

Gripping, elegantly and stylishly written, and extremely hard to put down!

Critic Reviews

'Chilling and hypnotically suspenseful ... could be an instant classic.'

LEE CHILD
Critic Reviews

If you're engaged to get married, by all means read something else.

CHRIS PAVONE
Critic Reviews

An extraordinarily well-written tale of deceit and revenge told by a very gifted writer. Peter Swanson takes us on a harrowing journey through the hearts and minds of a cast of characters who seem normal on the outside, but are deliciously abnormal on the inside.

NELSON DEMILLE
Critic Reviews

A work of lovely violence and graceful malevolence, The Kind Worth Killing slips into your life like a stiletto in the ribs. This is a book that launches Peter Swanson straight into the ranks of the killer elite, alongside Tana French, Gillian Flynn, and Lauren Beukes. He's the real deal.

JOE HILL
Critic Reviews

Gone Girl on speed.
