When Valentina López Vázquez vanishes from her home one morning, it’s obvious that she was taken by force. What happened to her next is not so obvious.
The disappearance forces two men on a gruelling search for the truth: Barry Wall, Valentina’s frantic husband, and Joe Byrne, the nihilistic detective in charge of the investigation.
They are locked on a devastating course that will take them to places darker than they ever dreamt – places without limits…
Don’t miss this page-turning thriller. Perfect for fans of Shari Lapena, Peter Swanson, Jennifer Hillier, and Linwood Barclay.

Valentina was scared of the man painting her house. She disliked how he looked at her and could not shake a weird feeling that something terrible was about to happen.
It turns out Valentina’s uneasiness was justified. She was taken from her home, and the only thing left behind were her fingers scattered around the backyard.
The case was handed to the disillusioned and traumatized Joe Byrne, a cop haunted by his past and barely pulling himself together.
The plot was very well developed and kept me intrigued throughout the book. The characters were complex, flawed, and the line between good and bad often blurred.
The story had many twists and turns, and all loose threads were well tied in the end.
I particularly enjoyed the fast rhythm of the narrative. I think this book could easily be adapted to the screen and become a great movie.
The Kindness of Psychopaths is a must-read for fans of the genre and all crime-solving enthusiasts.
Warning: Violence, murder, cruelty.
