The Killing Kind by Jane Casey
About The Book
He tells you you’re special…
As a barrister, Ingrid Lewis 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.
He tells you he wants to protect you…
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…
But can you believe him?
Webster claims Ingrid is in danger – and that only he can protect her. Stalker or saviour? Murderer or protector? The clock is ticking for Ingrid to decide. Because the killer is ready to strike again.
They always say that mixing business with personal life is never a good mix, the repercussions could be high risk, and in this case even your life could be at risk. Are you ready to discover “The Killing Kind”?
I liked this story, but sometimes it feels a little bit unrealistic; Ingrid Lewis is a highly respected barrister that had to defend a very dangerous man, John Webster, who is now trying to convince her that her life is in danger and he is the only one that can protect her…
I don’t trust people, so, if someone I know that it’s dangerous is trying to scare me I would go directly to the police, but instead, Ingrid tries to discover what’s really happening by herself. An interesting story to get you turning pages but as I said, it doesn’t feel real if you try to understand Ingrid reasoning, a little bit too reckless for my taste!
Having said that, this is an addictive read; you could feel the pressure of the situation in your own skin, you can’t trust anyone and want to know who is really moving the threads.
Are you ready for a high race to save Ingrid’s life? It will not be easy and you could lose everything… Ready for “The Killing Kind”?
