Waterstones Says

An FBI agent joins forces with a crime enthusiast bookshop owner, who once wrote an article on eight famous literary murders – for it now seems someone is acting them out, one by one. Unfolding like a game of Trivial Pursuit of famous whodunits, Rules for Perfect Murders is a brilliantly plotted, gripping read.

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?

I really think Peter Swanson might be my favourite currently writing thriller writer. Every book he writes, I need to have an I inhale. I could barely find fault with either the plot or the characters, but I did knock... More
