9780062267528 A devious tale of psychological suspense so irresistible that it prompts Entertainment Weekly to ask, â€œIs The Kind Worth Killing the next Gone Girl?â€ 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 bestselling tradition of Paula Hawkinsâ€™ The Girl on the Trainâ€”and is soon to be a major movie directed by Agnieszka Holland. In a tantalizing set-up reminiscent of Patricia Highsmithâ€™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 thatâ€™s going stale and his wife Miranda, who heâ€™s sure is cheating on him. Ted and his wife were a mismatch from the startâ€”he the rich businessman, she the artistic free spiritâ€”a contrast that once inflamed their passion, but has now become a clichÃ©. But their game turns a little darker when Ted jokes that he could kill Miranda for what sheâ€™s done. Lily, without missing a beat, says calmly, â€œIâ€™d like to help.â€ After all, some people are the kind worth killing, like a lying, stinking, cheating spouse. . . . Back in Boston, Ted and Lilyâ€™s twisted bond grows stronger as they begin to plot Miranda's demise. But there are a few things about Lilyâ€™s past that she hasnâ€™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. Â
