BOOK REVIEW - The Kill by Evie Hunter

The Kill

Secrets can't stay hidden forever...

After six years in prison for a crime he did not commit, Sebastian Carter is out and determined to get answers about who set him up. He knows it’s someone close to him and Sebastian will make sure they pay.

Ava Harper is living a lie. Although she loves her job caring for young Lily Carter, her real reason for being in the Carter household is to get answers of her own – from none other than convicted murderer Sebastian.

Sebastian hates liars, but he’s intrigued by Ava. As he gets to know more about her, he wonders if the answers she’s looking for could solve his mystery too.

Or will getting too close to Ava risk them both getting killed…?


I received an advance review audiobook for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Evie Hunter and Rachel's Random Resources. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.

Wow! This my first book by Evie Hunter and is not my last. Evie is an amazing storyteller. This book is captivating with two riveting mysteries running along side one another. This brought a level of depth to this story and kept me engaged from start to finish. I’ve not read many gangland thrillers but think I should.

First, we have Sebastian, freshly out of a 6-year prison sentence for crime he did not commit. He is determined to find out who set him up. Second, is Ava who is currently living a lie. She wants to know what happened to her mother who walked out one day and never returned. Ava’s father tried to find her yet was unsuccessful when no leads developed.

Fast paced and told from multiple POVs, this book is full of twists and turns I didn’t see coming. The red herrings had my all over the place and suspecting everyone at one point. The characters are well developed and likeable. The backstories helped me better understand them. I absolutely loved the final twist. It takes the book in another direction. I also enjoyed the descriptions. They are realistic and had me completely enmeshed in the story.

I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a well written and intriguing gangland thriller. I look forward to reading more from this author!
