Peter Swanson

This year I’ve read Peter Swanson’s two books ‘A Kind Worth Killing’ and ‘The Girl with a Clock for a Heart’. They are fantastically enjoyable reads; twisty thrillers that help satisfy my cravings for a Harlan Coben style book while I’m waiting for his next book.

‘The Kind Worth Killing’ was a particularly satisfying read. It is told in three parts and there is a mind-blowing twist at the end of the first part which I totally did not see coming and which takes the book in a completely different direction to that which I was expecting. It’s very rare to read a book which surprises me that much and it was so refreshing.

I’ll definitely look out for books from this author again in the future. Although I hope he is able to branch out from the cold sociopath female femme fatale villains which feature at the heart of both of these books.
