Kill for Me, Kill for You - a devious double-murder plan between two women makes for one terrific thriller.

Amanda has experienced the unimaginable. Her daughter and husband are dead. While she and even the police know who the killer is, it is an impossible case that Detective Farrow wants to see come to justice. In a grief support group, Amanda meets Wendy, also dealing with a similar loss and the desire to seek justice from a killer who walks free. In a Patricia Highsmith-inspired plan, they decide to murder the monster lurking in each of their lives. We also learn of Ruth, who is dealing with her own trauma. She is trying to recover from being attacked by a man with piercing blue eyes. Detective Farrow is also on the case. Through multiple perspectives, their stories unfold. Will the devious double-murder plan work and protect them from the police? And how does Ruth fit into the story?

This is the first book I've read from author Steve Cavanagh, a very popular and acclaimed UK writer. After reading Kill for Me, Kill for You, I am now a fan. This book was released overseas last year, and I am so glad that it is now being released by a U.S. publisher. This book is a great example of why I love mystery thrillers. I was kept on the edge of my seat. It was so much fun seeing how all the pieces of this twisted puzzle came together. The classic 1951 movie Strangers on a Train, adapted from Highsmith's 1950 murder swap novel, is a favorite that I've seen multiple times, so I knew I was going to enjoy reading this book. Gripping, jaw-dropping, heart-pounding. I could go on and on. Don't pass this one by.

Many thanks to Atria Books | Simon & Schuster for an early copy of this fabulous book.
