Do you remember me?’ she asked, after stepping into my office.

When private detective and former teacher Henry Kimball is hired to investigate an ex-pupil’s cheating husband, he senses all is not quite what it seems, and before he knows it he’s gotten far too close to the other woman.

As the case gets ever stranger, he turns to the only person he can trust, Lily Kintner, someone with dark secrets of her own…

With its ingenious clockwork-like plot, and twists aplenty, The Kind Worth Saving is a crime novel to savour from a modern master.

Critic Reviews

This is a sequel to Swanson’s smash hit The Kind Worth Killing, but you don’t have to have read it to enjoy this one, as Kimball’s riveting back story is stitched seamlessly into the narrative. The suspense filled plot means The Kind Worth Saving will be another sure-fire winner and I’ve no doubt this won’t be the last we’ll hear of Henry Kimball.
