A Kiss After Dying by Ashok Banker – Blog Tour Review

Title: A Kiss After Dying

Author: Ashok Banker

Genre: Psychological Thriller

Publisher: Penguin Michael Joseph

Publication Date: 23rd June 2022

Rating: 4/5



Hannah is shy and sometimes spiky; no one ever seems to notice her.

Which is exactly how she’s planned it.

Ricky is anything but shy: rich, charming, good-looking, he always gets what he wants.

And now he wants Hannah.

There’s a spark between them that even Hannah can’t resist.

But soon it’ll go up in flames . . .


A Kiss After Dying is one of those books that you just cannot put down. The story follows Hannah, a seemingly shy, aloof and unnoticeable young women at university in Zurich. She catches the eye of the ‘big man on campus’, the billionaire player Ricky who essentially decides he has to bed her. However, nothing is quite as it seems here. Hannah is not who she is pretending to be and she has dark and dangerous plans for the arrogant man she is certain destroyed her family.

I really don’t want to give any plot points away as half the fun of this book is the wild ride it takes you on. I had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen to these twisted and morally ambiguous characters. Hannah is fabulously determined with a steely attitude that makes her so entertaining to follow. The story takes some really interesting and unexpected paths as it progresses that had me glued to the pages. An addictive, dark, sharp and complex revenge thriller that I thoroughly enjoyed. Would absolutely recommend!

    This sounds like such a great story. At first I was like ew at the part of Ricky deciding he has to bed Hannah but then I read the rest of your review and I’m like YESSSS. I’ll have to keep this one in mind for one of my next reads!
