Swipe Right for Murder – Derek Milman | A Book Review

Swipe Right for Murder - Derek Milman

Title: Swipe Right For Murder

Author: Derek Milman

Genre: Mystery (Young Adult)

About the book: Aidan Jamison, a seventeen year old, finds himself on the run from the FBI and a cyber-terrorist organization after a hookup ends with someone murdered.

I received an advanced review copy from Hachette Book Group in exchange for an honest review.

First impressions: I love thrillers as much as anybody, so I was excited to read this novel. The title and cover intrigued me. I didn’t know what to expect.

Characters: Aidan is complex, and he has a complicated past. I appreciate the LGBTQ+ diversity with some individuals being gay. The author did a good job of representing different relationships.


“But we can’t hold on to so much fury we succumb to pure evil, and become worse than those we hate.”

Writing: The chapters are long but have breaks in between. There’s a little bit of romance, which I didn’t mind too much. Milman addresses issues like drinking and drugs while also exploring equality and civil rights for members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Final thoughts: I wasn’t sure how the story would end, but I felt the ending provided me with enough closure.

If you’re interested in diverse YA thrillers, I’d recommend Swipe Right For Murder.
