Review: Eight Perfect Murders

Eight Perfect Murders Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Absolutely loved this book. It was the type that had a flow that you wanted to just keep pushing forward. Even the end game was a surprise, although maybe not for everyone, I was certainly quite taken back by it.

Ages ago, Malcolm Kershaw, a bookshop owner, was doing a blog for the shop he worked in and he compiled a list of the eight murders in novels that were what he classed as perfect, unsolveable, murders. The list contained a very interesting array of books including a Ruth Rendell and Agatha Christie.

Now, years later, it appears that someone is using his list and the methods of murder to kill people, or possibly test the list. Malcolm is surprised when he gets a call from an FBI agent who has questions for him regarding his list from the past.

An excellent read.
