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.
Thanks a million HarperCollins UK for ARC reader’s copy of The Killing Kind in exchange for an honest review! Absolutely enjoyed, as always, Jane Casey writes a good one! This is a crime fiction standalone, quick read and hard to put down, twists and turns.
The plot is about a covert narcist personality to one of the previous Clients Ingrid has represented in the court ages ago, but even she won the case in his favour his attention switched towards her by destroying her own life and peace of wellbeing and now he seems to have returned, except this time it seems almost impossible to be proven and many disbelief her most of the time.
The impossible seems to be happening and sudden accidents take place around her and to people she knows. She is trying her best to figure it out what would be his next move to be unpleasantly surprised again. Ingrid’s gut feeling says more than she is able to know at the time without giving any further spoilers, as a reader I enjoyed the plot, as there are many narcissistic personalities around us and I believe the author has drawn very clear picture of that it is like to be around one as well the character experience a journey once she is personally affected and not just someone non-involved that may be drawn by the person with disorder to feel and express any feelings. Even through a tough experience main character changes along within the plot, and I think it is very well written.
