    I felt that although this book was entertaining, it was a little unorganized. The title makes it sound like the book is about the quest to kill Kate, and while that is mostly true, I feel that there is a deeper plot that was highly ignored. The main idea of the book was very good, and I enjoyed the read.

    Imagine there is a serial killer very close to where you live and all the victims happen to look like you. Scary, right? Well this is the premise of Killing Kate. Kate Armstrong has broken up with her long-term boyfriend and is enjoying her new single life but she starts to get the feeling that somebody might be watching her. Is it Phil, her ex, who can't get over her, or is it the strangler?This is one of those books that makes you want to keep on reading. The chapters are short and often end on a cliffhanger, ramping up the tension nicely. It also freaked me out a bit when I was reading it in bed at night. There are some elements that I thought didn't quite ring true and the ending was all a bit neat, but I do think it must be very hard to wind up the twists and turns of a psychological thriller satisfactorily.I must admit that I did guess who the killer was pretty early on but that didn't spoil anything for me as the story moves along at a fast pace and there was always the element of doubt in there. Was it really who I thought it was?I haven't read After Anna yet, but I think I will enjoy it based on my experience of Killing Kate. I was certainly hooked right from the beginning and couldn't wait to see how it turned out.

    This was a good listen. The writing is flawless.
  • (2/5)
    Very predictable. I skipped the middle and went to the end and didn't miss a thing.
  • (2/5)
    This book was painfully predictable. I kept hoping there would be a twist but no. The main character was insipid. The author also overexplained everything.
  • (5/5)
    awesome story. suspenseful the entire way through. 5 stars in my opinion
  • (1/5)
    The plot was very outlandish. The twist happens with a minor and unknown character. Just too unbelievable.
  • (4/5)
    Good easy listen. Nothing life changing but good on a long drive!

    Several chapters didn’t play. I had to skip continuously. It didn’t play the very end. Strongly disappointed.

    Killing Kate from Alex Lake is a well-written serial killer thriller that does a great job of tying up loose ends at the end.First, a pet peeve of mine in reviews: nobody cares if you claim to have known who the killer was as soon as you opened the book. We don't believe you, not in the "oh she/he must be so smart" way you wish. A good novel provides various possible suspects and, at various points throughout the book, a reader will lean toward one of those possibilities. But to claim one "knew" definitively is bunk and says more about that readers insecurities than it does about the book and actually shows the opposite of the intended impression concerning that reader's intelligence. Not to mention if the only reason you read such a book is to "figure out" who did it then you are missing out on the best parts of fiction in general and thrillers/mysteries in particular. Okay, so...Lake does a wonderful job of providing several plausible suspects and enough information to keep you wondering even when you have made you guess about who you think did it. The fun in this book in particular was seeing how everything would be brought together and tied up. I will agree with some readers who felt some sections dragged a bit from exposition but I also think it was done within a reasonable frame of the personality type and the desire to brag, so it did not bother me too much.I was happy with the way the novel ended as well, enough of each character's future still hanging but each also seemingly coping and moving in the right directions.I would recommend this to readers of thrillers and mysteries, especially those who like to know what is going on in the main characters' minds. Stress and anxiety can make us ponder every conceivable possibility and this book lets us in on some of those thoughts for the main two characters.Reviewed from a copy made available (finally, with a lot of unprofessionalism) from some amateur through Goodreads' First Reads.
