This book was the inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock‘s 1951 film by the same name, #StrangersOnATrain. Guy, a man in the midst of a divorce, and Charles, a sadistic psychopath, are passengers on the same train. Charles convinces Guy to swap murders (his father for Guy‘s wife). As Bruno carries out his twisted plan, Guy is trapped in a perilous world, where, under the right circumstances, anybody is capable of murder. #TBR #Trains #NoteworthyNovember

KathyWheeler I loved that movie and keep meaning to read the book. 2y
Jess7 I think it sounds good. @KathyWheeler . I don‘t think I‘ve watched the movie either. I‘ve heard good things about both. @MinDea have you read this book or watched the movie by the same name? 2y

My pick for #TwoFacedTuesday of #SpookyOctober 👻 is #TheKindWorthKilling by #PeterSwanson. There are plenty of two-faced characters in this book! It is a devious tale of #psychological #suspense so irresistible that it is often compared to #GoneGirl, #TheGirlontheTrain and #StrangersonaTrain. Two strangers meet at an airport bar. After a few drinks and a game of truth, they find themselves jokingly planning to commit #murder. But was it a joke?

bookloo This is so far my favorite thriller I‘ve read this year. 🖤 2y
TheLudicReader This was a ball to read. 2y
Jess7 I really enjoyed it too @bookloo and @TheLudicReader - part of the ending was a little hard for me to believe (specifically the part where the contractor completely flipped on Miranda instead of just going to the cops when Lily cornered him). I guess that speaks to the kind of pull Lily had though, but that part was just a little unbelievable for me. Still I loved the pace and the twists this one had! 2y
