Description

From the author of the acclaimed Girl with a Clock for a Heart—hailed
by the Washington Post as crime fiction's
best first novel of 2014—comes a devious tale of psychological suspense
involving sex, deception, and an accidental encounter that leads to murder that
is a modern reimagining of Patricia Highsmith's classic Strangers on a Train.

On a night flight from London to Boston, Ted
Severson meets the stunning and mysterious Lily Kintner. Sharing one too many
martinis, the strangers begin to play a game of truth, revealing very intimate
details about themselves. Ted talks about his marriage that's going stale and
his wife, Miranda, who he's sure is cheating on him. Ted and his wife were a
mismatch from the start—he the rich businessman, she the artistic free spirit—a
contrast that once inflamed their passion but has now become a cliché.

But their game turns a little darker when Ted jokes
that he could kill Miranda for what she's done. Lily, without missing a beat,
says calmly, "I'd like to help." After all, some people are the kind worth
killing, like a lying, stinking, cheating spouse.

Back in Boston, Ted and Lily's twisted bond grows
stronger as they begin to plot Miranda's demise. But there are a few things
about Lily's past that she hasn't shared with Ted, namely her experience in the
art and craft of murder, a journey that began in her very precocious youth.

Suddenly these coconspirators are embroiled in a
chilling game of cat and mouse, one they both cannot survive ... with a shrewd
and very determined detective on their tail.

        Starred review from December 8, 2014
        Revenge has rarely been served colder than in Swanson’s exceptional thriller, his second standalone after 2013’s The Girl with a Clock for a Heart. When Ted Severson, a wealthy Boston entrepreneur, and Lily Kintner, an attractive archivist at Winslow College outside Boston, meet by chance in a Heathrow airport lounge, they trade intimate secrets: Ted wants to kill his unfaithful wife, Miranda—and Lily, who’s about Miranda’s age, wants to help. Unbeknownst to Ted, Lily has made a career of dispassionate homicide, at one point musing, “to take another life was, in many ways, the greatest expression of what it meant to be alive.” While Ted and Lily hatch their devious scheme back in Boston, police detective Henry Kimball tries to untangle the web of deceit that surrounds Lily. With scalpel-sharp prose, Swanson probes the nature of cold-blooded evil. Few will be prepared for the crushing climax. Agent: Nat Sobel, Sobel Weber Associates.

      • content: This is an audiobook that grips the listener from the opening sentence and gets even better as the story progresses, all because the engaging performances of narrators Johnny Heller, Karen White, Kathleen Early, and Keith Szarabajka complement Swanson's compelling psychological thriller. While an ensemble cast could have overwhelmed this book, these narrators enhance the story by creating distinct and memorable personas of its many psychopaths. From the moment Ted Severson and Lily Kintner meet on a transatlantic flight and begin playing a seemingly fatal game of psychological chess, the production shines. It's hard to say which performance is best; however, Kathleen Early's seemingly emotionless presentation of Lily Swanson's complex character stands out among the narrators' stellar presentations.
