The kind worth killing

The Kind Worth Killing - Peter Swanson

The whole time I was reading this I kept thinking of two lines in the poem, "Marmion" by Sir Walter Scott, taken completely out of context of course, "Oh! What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive." This book was deception after deception, deceptions to cover other deceptions. Even when it looked like one thing was going to happen, something else did.

Definitely kept one reading, such a grouping of characters with little or no conscience. Well written, suspenseful and rapidly paced, I found this to be a very entertaining read. Loved the ending too, totally unexpected, but I thought perfect.
