"Fiendish good fun." -- 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 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 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 Bookshop 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. There is 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 never escape.… (mais)

Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson provides an excellent list of mysteries to read. Swanson includes a brief description of the plot and characters. Swanson also delves into various movies recreating the mystery. Strangers on a Train ranks on the top of the list, and of course the Alfred Hitchcock presentation shines. I have never read the book but will read this novel and Double Indemnity. Double Indemnity, the movie starring Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray, shocked many viewers. Let us return to Eight Perfect Murders and the fated list of Malcolm Kershaw. Malcolm had listed his favorite mysteries on a blog, but now a serial killer has started using Malcolm’s list to commit murders. An FBI agent contacts Malcolm in hopes that the killer can be stopped. Peter Swanson a well written novel and a valuable resource for readers of mysteries. ( )

A clever, twisty, satisfying murder mystery. It pays homage to classic mysteries and is probably a spoiler for most of the titular eight (though that probably won’t keep me from reading the ones I haven’t yet). I didn’t figure it out, though I should probably have re-read Agatha Christie to have picked up on more of the clues. ( )

Malcolm Kershaw lives in an attic in Boston's Beacon Hill and owns/manages a nearby bookstore specializing in mysteries. FBI agent (Gwen Mulvey) comes to interview Mal, having linked some murders or suspicious deaths to a long ago blog written by Mal, listed what he thought were the eight most flawless murders carried out in mystery fiction. Mal is living day-to-day, having lost his soulmate Claire to an auto accident on her way home from a party, having suffered a relapse and likely under the influence of drugs. Swanson eases us into the psyche of Mal, his two employees, his store cat (Nero), and his few friends and acquaintances, and how his past actions have effected all. Some serious twists in the last 75 pages. ( )

A bookish mystery full of references to classic noir novels. I was completely engrossed by the story, but even more than that, I loved all of the backlist books it referenced. I kept adding notes about other murder mysteries to check out. A bookstore owner is surprised when the FBI contacts him about a pattern in some local killings. Our unreliable narrator gives us answers slowly, which makes it all the more enthralling.

“Books are time travel. True readers all know this. But books don’t just take you back to the time in which they were written; they can take it back to different versions of yourself.” ( )

overall a decent book. started off compelling enough and definitely an excellent premise, though once you get in to it a bit its a bit predictable if you know these stories well. That being said, I did enjoy reading it even after I knew what was likely to happen. I'd definitely read it again someday ( )
