Our Kind of Cruelty

The most addictive psychological thriller you’ll read this year




‘Simply one of the most disturbing thrillers I’ve read in years. In short I loved it, right down to the utterly chilling final line’ –
Gillian Flynn, author of GONE GIRL

Our Kind of Cruelty is:

‘Astonishingly dark.’

‘Chilling. Disturbing. Addictive.’

‘Gripping, unsettling, and brilliantly constructed.’

‘The year’s best thriller.’



Things were difficult with Mike by the end. He was too much, too controlling – sometimes, I was afraid of him. But I’ve moved on now. I’m getting married to the man of my dreams – he looks after me, but he doesn’t stifle me. Mike and the games we used to play – that’s all in the past now.

It’s time to move on.

Mike and I are finished.


It was just a matter of time until she came back to me. After what I did, maybe she’s right to make me wait. But Verity knows how sorry I am. And the messages she sends me, the way she calls me, the way she acted last time I saw her – no-one acts like that if they’ve stopped caring.

She’ll be mine again.

No matter who stands in my way.
