Eight Perfect Murders

 


Author: Peter Swanson

Publisher: William Morrow

Year: 2020

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


A book about crime books and classic mysteries? Sign me up! 

With an unreliable narrator? Even better!

With a mystery bookshop that has a store cat named Nero? Yes please! 


Bookseller Malcolm Kershaw sets a Strangers on a Train murder pact in motion. But his unknown partner in crime begins emulating “perfect murders” from classic crime novels that Malcom had once highlighted in a blog post. 


As a book lover, especially a crime book lover, this book was lots of fun. It paid homage to some of the giants in the genre and it had a good, twisty, complex mystery. This definitely is one of my favorite books of 2020! 


Reading it reminded me that I have a special Highsmith book. My husband gave me a signed copy of Mermaids on the Golf Course as a gift years ago. It’s a limited edition collection of short stories & includes a slipcase. My copy is “out of series” meaning it was probably a review copy but still signed by the author. 


Do you have any signed books or limited editions?
