The Kind Worth Saving by Peter Swanson


Thank you, Partner @bibliolifestyle @williammorrowbooks for the review copy of this book.

If you could have a sequel to any stand-alone which would it be?

The Kind Worth Saving is a follow-up to Peter Swanson’s riveting thriller The Kind Worth Killing.  It’s a new mystery that keeps a couple of characters from the first novel while also keeping the atmosphere.  You can read it as a standalone, but I really enjoyed reading it right after The Kind Worth Killing.

Henry Kimball is a private investigator.  Earlier in his life, he was a high school English teacher for one year before his career ended when a school shooting took place in his classroom.  A student from that classroom, Joan, has turned up asking him to investigate her husband whom she believes is cheating on her with a co-worker.  As Henry digs into the case, the story takes many unexpected turns and he seeks out help from a person from his past. 

Like The Kind Worth Killing, the Kind Worth Saving had a plot with many twists and turns that kept me guessing all of the way through.  I loved the characters that returned from the first book and the path that this book took.  I really like to be surprised and this book delivered.  The characters all had serious flaws, but they were intriguing.  I kept trying to figure out why they did what they did.  It was a fascinating psychological thriller that made you think.

This was a fast-paced thriller that also kept me up too late at night to see what happened just like the previous book.  I highly recommend it to all thriller lovers out there.
