I was very excited to read this, as soon as I saw it was another book by Alan Gorevan I signed up for the tour immediately as I loved The Thriller Collection!
How far would you go for those you love?
When Valentina López Vázquez vanishes from her home one morning, it’s obvious that she was taken by force. What happened to her next is not so obvious.
The disappearance forces two men on a gruelling search for the truth: Barry Wall, Valentina’s frantic husband, and Joe Byrne, the nihilistic detective in charge of the investigation.
They are locked on a devastating course that will take them to places darker than they ever dreamt – places without limits…
Don’t miss this page-turning thriller. Perfect for fans of Shari Lapena, Peter Swanson, Jennifer Hillier, and Linwood Barclay.
I like that Gorevan gets right to the point quickly, such a fast-paced opening that it hooks you in!
The one thing that struck me in this book was how I couldn’t work out if I liked or didn’t like the characters. Barry Wall struck me as a genuine guy at the beginning whom I felt sorry for before being enraged by him and subsequently feeling sorry for him again. It was a bit of a rollercoaster! Dunne was another strange one I couldn’t quite work out, from the outset I thought she was corrupt but something didn’t quite feel right. She turned out to be one of the characters I liked the best.
One part of the story I felt was particularly well written was the part where Christopher goes home after the incident in the park. Gorevan is very clever here and goes on to tell the story from a completely different perspective later on in the book, which was really compelling and totally threw me off.
As the story ends, the readers are left wondering what Joe will do – will he go with Dunne or work things out with Lisa? I really want him to go back to Lisa and make things work, I feel like there’s a lot of unfinished business there. I’m hoping there will be a next instalment so we can find out.
‘The Kindness of Psychopaths’ is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing. There’s a lot of death and different aspects to the story that you can’t help but keep reading. Another success for Alan Gorevan – I look forward to the next one!
