Peter Swanson, self-described “failed poet,” has published his second book, “The Kind Worth Killing.”
David loves Peter’s writing style, and particularly his dialogue, and looks forward to reading Peter’s next book, which will probably be finished sometime this fall.
What Peter is saying on Twitter:
@cwperov Too much hat?
“Is The Kind Worth Killing the next Gone Girl? This homage to Patricia Highsmith’s classic. Strangers on a Train shares a lot of Gone Girl’s hallmarks but cranks up the volume on each. There aren’t just two unreliable narrators, there are four. There isn’t just one enormous, game-changing twist. Try three, including one at the end that will take your breath away. You’ll also lose count of all the sociopaths. Or are they psychopaths? It doesn’t matter—just know that they’re each deranged but oh-so-compelling.”

“Chilling and hypnotically suspenseful … could be an instant classic.”
— Lee Child, author of Personal
