In this sequel to his 2015 best-seller The Kind Worth Killing, Swanson delves into the depraved mind of a killer through the lens of an oddly matched murderous duo. Fifteen years ago, first-year teacher Henry Kimball’s classroom was the scene of a school shooting that resulted in one casualty. Now working as a private investigator, Henry is hired by Joan Whalen, a model student from his brief teaching career. Joan enlists Henry to investigate her real estate broker husband, whom she suspects of infidelity. Henry’s somewhat unscrupulous methods put him in the wrong place at the wrong time, and he quickly realizes that he is ensnared in much more than a simple case of adultery. Henry reunites with an unexpected ghost from his past to help unravel a decades-old trail of deception and evil. As Henry inches closer to the truth, his own life hangs precariously in the balance. The result is a spine-tingling quest to expose evil before evil wins.
VERDICT Psychological thriller fanatics will scramble to complete this satisfyingly twisty novel.
