About the book:
An epic case of mistaken identity puts a teen looking for a hookup on the run from both the FBI and a murderous cult in this compulsively readable thriller.
Finding himself alone in a posh New York City hotel room for the night, Aidan does what any red-blooded seventeen-year-old would do—tries to hook up with someone new. But that lapse in judgement leads him to a room with a dead guy and a mysterious flash drive . . . two things that spark an epic case of mistaken identity that puts Aidan on the run—from the authorities, his friends, his family, the people who are out to kill him—and especially from his own troubled past.
Inspired by a Hitchcock classic, this whirlwind mistaken-identity caper has razor-sharp humor, devastating emotional stakes, and a thrilling storyline with an explosive conclusion to make this the most compelling YA novel of the year.
Swipe Right for Murder by Derek Milman is a young adult LGBTQ+ thriller. The story is a fast paced, adrenaline fueled adventure in which a teen goes on the run. The main character, Aidan, finds himself alone in a hotel so he decides to swipe right and find a hook up for the night. Of course instead of a fun night Aidan ends up on the run when he’s suspected of murder.
Now normally I’m all about a fast paced book where I don’t get a chance to catch my breath before the next twist comes along. However, when it came to Swipe Right for Murder some of the action just seemed over the top causing a bit of eye rolling as I turned the pages. In the end I just found the story to be so-so with some things I liked, the pace being at the top of the list, but then of course some I didn’t.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
