Would you trust him?
The clock is ticking for Ingrid to decide. Because the killer is ready to strike…

An excellent psychological thriller.
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.
I loved it from starting to ending.
Jane is back with a mind blowing thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Thanks to NetGalley and Harper Collins UK Harper Fiction for giving me an advanced copy.
This book has been completely and utterly impossible to put down. I have been completely gripped, suspicious of all the characters involved and completely unable to predict where this book was going. This is well-written, completely addictive and all round a wonderful gem. I absolutely recommend this book.
Dark and disturbing brilliantly-crafted novel. I'd heard great things about the writer - now I believe them.
Not much room for humour and yet Casey manages it in places, something I appreciated as it allowed me to break away from Ingrid's train crash of a life, if only for a second. Now I want to go back to the beginning and read Casey's backlist.
Head and shoulders the best book I've read so far this year. Interesting premise of the life of a barrister developing swiftly into an engrossing thriller full of twists and turns. A must read (I know it's not a Maeve and Derwent one but it's just as good honest). I just wish I could read it all over again #mustsavourbooksmore
Jane Casey has always been one of my favourite writers. I was so excited to read this book. I was immediately drawn Ingrirds world and cannot recommend this book enough.
Oh my god! The Killing Kind is absolutely incredible. It’s breathtaking, nail biting, spine tingling madness!! Loved it.
Jane Casey has such a fantastic way with words and storytelling, her Maeve Kerrigan series is one of my favourites and I was delighted with this stand alone thriller. It’s gripping, exciting and full of twists.
The Killing Kind is a strong five out of five and you NEED to read it.
An absolutely fantastic book. I seriously can't rate this book enough. I really liked the other two Jane Casey books I have read but I bloody loved this. Ita a total roller coster of a story with brilliant characters. It was dark, deceitful, gruesome and downright funny at times. Loved it. Cannot recommend enough xxxx
