If you want to get away with murder, play by the rules
Years ago Malcolm Kershaw wrote a list of his ‘Eight Favourite Murders’ for his Old Devils mystery bookshop blog. Among others, it included those from Agatha Christie’s The ABC Murders, Patricia Highsmith’s Strangers on a Train and Donna Tartt’s The Secret History.
Now, just before Christmas, Malcolm finds himself at the heart of an investigation – as an FBI agent believes someone may be re-enacting each of the murders on his list.
Can the killer be stopped before they get away with eight perfect murders?

Swanson’s pacing is exemplary. He knows how to ration his twists and where in the narrative to place them... the way he does it is so smart and exciting that you’re just happy to get swept along.
In trademark style, Swanson’s ingenious plotting throws up tantalising clues and then slowly unravels them through a series of shocking revelations, leaving readers confused, bemused and racing to the last page. Compelling, creepy, and psychologically astute, this is stylish thriller writing at its very best.
Fiendish good fun.
