Kill All Your Darlings by David Bell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Mystery, murder and plagiarism set in the realm of academia, Kill All Your Darlings is
diabolically twisty with an absolutely ingenious plot. A tortured English professor who can’t write. A tragic backstory. A stolen manuscript. This is suspense writing at its finest.
After years of struggling to write following the deaths of his wife and son, English professor Connor Nye publishes his first novel. The problem is, he didn’t write the book. When the real author, his missing student, appears on his doorstep alive and well, Connor’s problems are only just beginning. Because the details in the novel implicate him in an unsolved murder.
It doesn’t get more compelling than this. Sure to be one of the summer’s finest thrillers! I loved it!
