‘Fiendish good fun’ ANTHONY HOROWITZ
If you want to get away with murder, play by the rules
A series of unsolved murders with one thing in common: each of the deaths bears an eerie resemblance to the crimes depicted in classic mystery novels.
The deaths lead FBI Agent Gwen Mulvey to mystery bookshop Old Devils. Owner Malcolm Kershaw had once posted online an article titled ‘My Eight Favourite Murders,’ and there seems to be a deadly link between the deaths and his list – which includes Agatha Christie’s The ABC Murders, Patricia Highsmith’s Strangers on a Train and Donna Tartt’s The Secret History.
Can the killer be stopped before all eight of these perfect murders have been re-enacted?
‘An ingenious game of cat-and-mouse’ The Times
‘Never less than enthralling’ Daily Mail
‘Tremendously enjoyable’ Sunday Mirror
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.
