Lily and Ted meet one another on a flight one day. They end up sitting next to each other and discussing life’s ups and downs. Ted tells Lily about his cheating wife. He mentions thoughts of killing her as a joke. But then Lily’s reply is “I’d like to help”
Everyone dies eventually. Some people might be worth killing though. Is it justifiable to help someone die if they are bad for the world? Bad people who hurt people intentionally.
Lily and Ted continue to make plans. But planning and doing have such different outcomes. Lily has an immensely dark secret past that Ted has no idea of. He suspects she has taken a life or two before but he has no idea what he is getting himself into.
With deaths occuring and a detective on the chase. How many people are worth killing and how many murders can be gotten away with?
I would have absolutely loved this book more if there were less killers. I love how the murders were so carefully thought out and how they were not even close enough to catching up.
I love the plotting, I love the twists. I love the thought of the kind of people worth killing.
I was disappointed when someone unexpectedly died and it didn’t end up with the strangest happily ever after.
I would definitely recommend this book and I am highly looking forward to more books by Peter Swanson.
