Rules For Perfect Murders

10.79

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. Can the killer be stopped before all eight of these perfect murders have been re-enacted?

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?
