I do like a psychological thriller, especially one with a great twist (or two) that you never see coming.
I’ve very quickly become a fan of Lisa Sell, first with The Watcher and now with Killing Kindness.
I’m happy to say that I’ve now finished reading Killing Kindness and I’m disappointed.
Because it kept me gripped and now it’s ended.
Read on to find my review at the end of this post.
To refresh your memory, here’s the description,
Summer 1992: The Six, a group of teenagers, met in a disused mill every night. They thought they were invincible until Simon, a kind young man, disappeared.
Summer 2021: The Six – minus Simon – gather at the renovated mill for his memorial.
The reunion begins and a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues.
The body count rises.
Someone is killing kindness.
It’s cruel to be kind…
Lisa Sell doesn’t disappoint in this thriller.
A dual timeline thriller that grips you from the start, as you learn the truth about the events of 1992, as seen through the eyes of 2021. The Six and the other people they interact with are all interesting characters with great backstories, the references to the 90s are spot on.
There are plenty of twists and turns as the story unfolds and the tension mounts as we learn more about the reasons for the reunion in 2021. Nothing is as it seems, everyone has a reason for what they did or didn’t do. Then, about halfway through, a brilliant change of perspective adds another dimension to what is already a gripping tale.
The sheer inventiveness of the plot development makes the book stand out from a lot of its peers. The ending is totally unexpected, yet perfect.
All I can say, without giving too much away is that you must READ THIS BOOK. You will not regret it.
