New York Times bestseller

"Swanson rips us from one startling plot twist to the next... A true tour de force." ??Lisa Gardner

"[A] multilayered mystery that brims with duplicity, betrayal and revenge." ??USA Today

From the hugely talented author of The Kind Worth Killing 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 fiction's most ingenious murders.

Years ago, bookseller and mystery aficionado Malcolm Kershaw compiled a list of the genre's most unsolvable murders, those that are almost impossible to crack??which he titled "Eight Perfect Murders"??chosen from among the best of the best including Agatha Christie's A. B. C. Murders, Patricia Highsmith's Strangers on a Train, Ira Levin's Deathtrap, A. A. Milne's The 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 The 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. She's looking for information about a series of unsolved murders that look eerily similar to the killings on Mal's old list. And the FBI agent isn't the only one interested in this bookseller who spends almost every night at home reading. The killer is out there, watching his every move??a diabolical threat who knows way too much about Mal's personal history, especially the secrets he'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 doesn't count on the investigation leaving a trail of death in its wake. Suddenly, a series of shocking twists leaves more victims dead??and the noose around Mal's neck grows so tight he might… (més)

Peter Swanson has done it again, this is interesting and just when I thought I figured it out a twist. Its not a high exciting book but intriguing enough that I rated as a 5 star book as well as it is now one of my favorites. ( )

I'm not sure how I missed the "thriller" label on this when I decided to read it, or maybe I figured it would be okay since the last book I read with that label wasn't nearly as scary or creepy as I sort of assume that label implies. Anyway, I like reading books about the book world, and this is the story of a bookseller who gets caught up in a murder scheme. It's definitely twisty, though I could tell pretty early on that there was much more to the story, and the character Malcolm Kershaw, than meets the eye. There is a fair amount of misdirection that kept me guessing, and as the narrative approached the climax I definitely wanted to keep reading until the Big Reveal. Malcolm sort of comes off as a bit of a ne'er do well, a pretty mild-mannered guy who stumbles into a mess. Some revelations midway through disavow the reader of that notion, though the character does lack a certain intensity, moving through life almost in a dreamlike state, accepting all the things that happen with a vague curiosity, though he is well-versed in the tropes found in every crime and mystery novel, about taking precautions and covering his tracks. I can't really say much here about the actual plot without throwing spoilers, and I don't want to do that. I'm surprised, though, that Goodreads shows this as the first book in a series, because it really feels like a very complete story, to me. I guess I should expect one more twist! ( )

When a booksellers old list of books that he thought were the best perfect crimes starts happening in real life the FBI is now questioning him. ( )
