MFOB FEATURED BOOK: The Kind Worth Killing

Ted meets Lily on a night flight and, after too many martinis, reveals a secret about his marriage. He suspects his wife is cheating on him and jokes that he could kill her for it. Without missing a beat, Lily says she’d like to help. After all, some people are the kind worth killing. Ted and Lily’s twisted bond grows stronger as they plot his wife’s demise. But Lily harbors dark secrets of her own, and soon the co-conspirators are caught in a chilling game of cat and mouse, one they cannot both survive.
