The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson

Ted Severson meets a stranger, Lily Kintner, in an airport bar, whereupon he vents his anger at his wife, Miranda's infidelity and says he wants to "kill her." Lily then encourages Ted to go ahead and murder Miranda--in fact, Lily will even help him. What follows is an exploration of jealousy, attraction, and greed wrapped in a suspenseful contemporary noir. Despite a few implausibilities, Swanson has written a novel that is unpredictable and keeps the reader guessing until the end. It will be published in February.
