I post book reviews as often as possible but at least once a week every Wednesday! I hope they help you to find some new books that you'll love as much as I did!
Susie and her sister have never been close. These days they barely speak. So when Danielle messages her out of the blue and begs to meet, Susie knows something must be wrong.
But what Danielle tells her seems crazy. Her husband, Simon, may be a bully, but surely he wouldn't hurt her?
Then the accident happens. And Susie is forced to rethink everything.
Who is lying?
Who is telling the truth?
And who, really, is the killing type?
When I saw that this was available for free on Amazon, I couldn't help but download it straight away because I'm a massive fan of Jane Corry's work. As a short story, it's the ideal length for reading on a quick journey, which is how I read it. I started it as soon as I got on the train and I was actually willing the train to arrive a little late so that I'd be able to finish it! Luckily I did manage to finish it in time and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute!
The plot is twisty and intriguing and I think that actually, the idea could've worked really well as a full length novel because I found the characters interesting and would've loved to find out more about them, however, for such a short read, I think the amount of detail given was just right and any more may have detracted from the storyline and suspense.
Overall, I'm giving The Killing Type 5 out of 5. It's entertaining, suspenseful and packs a punch. If you've never read anything by Jane Corry before, I'd highly recommend downloading this. You'll be hooked on her writing in no time! The only problem you'll have is that you'll have to go and buy all of her books!
