Malcolm Kershaw, owner of mystery bookshop ‘Old Devils’, posted a blog online about eight perfect murders in crime fiction. Now, years later, the FBI want to talk to him about a string of suspicious deaths – it looks like someone is using his post as a guide for murder. In this twisty, tautly plotted thriller from a modern master of the genre, Swanson also pays homage to the true greats of crime fiction. Utterly riveting!
