"Fiendish good fun." A??Anthony Horowitz From the hugely talented author of Before She Knew Him comes a chilling tale of psychological suspense and an homage to the thriller genre tailor-made for fans: the story of a bookseller who finds himself at the center of an FBI investigation because a very clever killer has started using his list of fictionA??s most ingenious murders.Years ago, bookseller and mystery aficionado Malcolm Kershaw compiled a list of the genreA??s most unsolvable murders, those that are almost impossible to crackA??which he titled A??Eight Perfect MurdersA?A??chosen from among the best of the best including Agatha ChristieA??s A. B. C. Murders, Patricia HighsmithA??s Strangers on a Train, Ira LevinA??s Death Trap, A. A. Milne's Red House Mystery, Anthony Berkeley Cox's Malice Aforethought, James M. Cain's Double Indemnity, John D. Macdonald's The Drowner, and Donna Tartt's A Secret History. But no one is more surprised than Mal, now the owner of the Old Devils Bookstore in Boston, when an FBI agent comes knocking on his door one snowy day in February. SheA??s looking for information about a series of unsolved murders that look eerily similar to the killings on MalA??s old list. And the FBI agent isnA??t the only one interested in this bookseller who spends almost every night at home reading. There is killer is out there, watching his every moveA??a diabolical threat who knows way too much about MalA??s personal history, especially the secrets heA??s never told anyone, even his recently deceased wife. To protect himself, Mal begins looking into possible suspects . . . and sees a killer in everyone around him. But Mal doesnA??t count on the investigation leaving a trail of death in its wake. Suddenly, a series of shocking twists leaves more victims deadA??and the noose around MalA??s neck grows so tight he might never escape.
