My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Hardly 49 pages, this novella by Jane Corry still managed to leave me gasping.
2 sisters who are not close, who have always been playing for favoritism with their mother. One of them is married but something is amiss. Danielle insists that Simon is doing everything to do away with her, Susie can hardly believe it. Well, one can’t blame her Susie knows Danielle’s penchant for drama.
Six months later, the sisters are in court with Simon’s death hovering over their heads.
The twisty ending is shockingly good but it is a novella so there’s no gradual development of the plot which gives the reader a feeling of abruptness.
For a short story, there’s definitely nothing sweet about it, The Killing Type provides a glimpse of the huge talent that Jane Corry is.
ATWISTED TALE FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF MY HUSBAND’S WIFE AND BLOOD SISTERS – THE PERFECT TRAIN-RIDE READ
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?
