Book reviews - A Kiss Before Dying

A Kiss Before Dying


Author: Ira Levin
3.5 (2 Votes)

A modern classic, this novel set a new standard in the art of mystery and suspense in its exploration of the criminal mind.

A Kiss Before Dying not only debuted the talent of best-selling novelist Ira Levin to rave reviews and an Edgar Award, it also set a new standard in the art of psychological suspense. It tells the shocking tale of a young man who will stop at nothing―not even murder―to get where he wants to go. For he has dreams; plans. He also has charm, good looks, intelligence. And he has a problem. Her name is Dorothy; she loves him, and she's pregnant. The solution may demand desperate measures. But, then, he looks like the kind of guy who could get away with murder.
