✦ Plagiarism, murder, and a mystery inside a mystery in a Kentucky college town. ✦

To save his tenure, Professor Connor Nye must publish a novel, which has proved impossible since the death of his wife and son left him numb and uninspired. When one of his students disappears leaving behind a brilliant thesis paper, Connor submits it as his own book. However, after the novel is released, the missing student returns looking to collect the money Connor received for her work — or else.

But there’s much more to this layered story. What’s contained inside the plagiarized novel are words that could get certain people in a whole lot of trouble, including Connor. I enjoyed the conundrum he found himself in.

This is the 7th book I’ve read by David Bell, and I always know I’m in for a smart and twisty thriller when I pick one up. KILL ALL YOUR DARLINGS had less family drama than some of his previous books, but there was still plenty of tension and emotion to pull me in. — 𝓓𝓲𝓪𝓷𝓪

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I am suppose to read this one this month as well. So many stories like this lately it seems. The one I’m thinking of right now is The Plot by Korelitz.


  2. I read and enjoyed The Hiding Place by David Bell so I must look into more by him. This sounds a lot like The Plot, which I really liked!


  3. This sounds like another book I’ve been wanting to read. I’ve not read this author before but wow, you’ve read so many books by him! That’s a good sign.
