Book Review: The Killing Kind by Jane Casey

“He tells you you’re special. He tells you he wants to protect you. But can you believe him?”

Set to be released on 27th May, The Killing Kind by Jane Casey follows barrister Ingrid Lewis who is used to dealing with tricky clients. But no one has ever come close to John Webster. After Ingrid defended Webster against a stalking charge, he then turned on her – following her, ruining her relationship, even destroying her home. Now, Ingrid believes she has finally escaped his clutches. But when one of her colleagues is run down on a busy London road, Ingrid is sure she was the intended victim. And then Webster shows up at her door…


Thank you to NetGalley for a free advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A nail-bitingly tense psychological thriller, The Killing Kind is a completely gripping read that left me with heart palpitations as I tried to keep up with Ingrid’s tormentor.

Full of suspense, it’s such a brilliantly plotted and paced thriller. The tempo doesn’t stop as the tension builds and builds, absorbing you in the mystery of who’s watching Ingrid and messing with her life.

Ingrid is a brilliant lead character. She’s strong and intelligent, and Casey captures her torturous situation brilliantly, not knowing who to turn to as you begin to place your trust in her enemies and question those closest to her.

There are a number of characters under the spotlight and I certainly couldn’t predict which way the story would end. It had me gripped until the very end, and the final twists had me on the edge of my seat.

The Killing Kind is a book that you will find hard to put down. Casey is such an intelligent writer and I can’t wait to read more by her.
