I found The Kind Worth Killing through Goodreads while on the eternal search for the next great book to read. I love a good thriller and this book did not disappoint.
The Kind Worth Killing opens with two strangers, Ted and Lily, talking at an airport bar while waiting for their flight. The conversation continues on the flight and Ted shares that he is convinced that his wife, Miranda, is having and affair. He jokes that he would like to kill her and Lily tells him he should.
The chapters alternate between the narratives of different characters, which I thought made the story much more interesting. It allows you to get into the head of complicated and fascinating people, giving the characters and the plot more depth. I even found myself actually liking a psychopathic killer, which I think, is a sign of great writing. I really enjoy books, movies, and TV shows that cause me to question my moral compass by making me identify or root for a character that would traditionally be the bad guy.
My biggest complaint about many books in the thriller or mystery genre is that often the major plot points or big twists are predictable. The Kind Worth Killing left me guessing the entire time and kept me enthralled to the end. I couldn’t put it down, and I highly recommend that you go give it a read.
