1. The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson
If you’re a fan of suspenseful novels like “Gone Girl” and “Girl on the Train” then this duplicitous story by Peter Swanson should be right on top of your reading list. The question that is posed to you, the reader, from the very beginning, is “Who is the kind worth killing?” Is there some truth behind the law of retaliation – an eye for an eye? Are we on some level entitled to terminate the lives of the morally repugnant people we encounter throughout our own lives? No, you can’t go around willy-nilly killing people who double-cross you. That’s not the way the world works. But somehow the author manages to take us along on this trip of murderous betrayal and leaves us with an unswerving sentiment of compassion for the likely ‘villain’.
