I’m very late to the party with this one, but I’m glad I finally got around to reading it! The Kind Worth Killing is sort of a modern retelling of Patricia Highsmith’s Strangers On A Train. It has the same “folie à deux” premise as it tells the story of a man who, on a night flight, meets a woman who helps him plot the murder of his wife, who’s having an affair with her contractor.
There’s psychopathy, people getting away with murder, a daring plot with a big twist halfway through and a very clever conclusion! I particularly enjoyed the character “Lily”; she has the most fascinating backstory, which gave the plot more depth and originality. I thoroughly enjoyed this and hope to read more of Swanson’s books soon.
Have you read The Kind Worth Killing, fellow readers? What were your thoughts?
