Book Summary:

"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 Bookstore 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.

Book Summary:

"Specialising in mystery books, Old Devils is a Boston institution; a place where tourists come to snap photos with the shop's Instagrammable cat and browse first editions of Patricia Highsmith novels. Malcolm Kershaw, its owner, lives a quiet life, so he's surprised when an FBI Agent shows up one gloomy winter morning and asks him if he can answer some questions. Agent Gwen Mulvey is investigating a series of unsolved murders that appear to have one thing in common: each of the deaths bears an eerie similarity to the crimes depicted in several famous classic mystery novels. Malcolm doesn't know what to say - he doesn't know anything about the crimes, has barely even heard of the victims - but he certainly isn't expecting Agent Mulvey to bring up a blog post he wrote years ago. 'My Eight Favourite Murders', posted in 2004, was Malcolm's inaugural piece on the Old Devils site. Now, it seems, someone is using that list as a template; Agent Mulvey thinks Malcolm's specialist knowledge of the mysteries will help her solve the murders. But with each murder, the killer is inching ever closer to Malcolm himself, and the more Malcolm and Agent Mulvey learn, the less clear it becomes who is investigating whom."--Publisher description.

Book Summary:

Teacher Jane married Head master John Crocker in order to have a family. When she realizes she married a boring sterile man she seeks her form of justice and retribution by having affairs with fellow science teacher Paul Belmont, whose wife Meredith is a few months pregnant, and his best friend, prosecutor lawyer Vincent Myles. The men see it as a bit of a lark, Jane sees it as her only way to get a baby she desperately wants. The affair spins out of control, threatening the men's marriages and careers. When Jane blithely informs Paul she is pregnant he finally realizes what her game had been all along. He feels used and abused and threatened and when an unexpected opportunity to kill her with impunity crops up he acts on it without thinking of the morality or consequences. Johnny, a nerdy student, who constructed the fatal Leyden jar that killed Jane is sent to an institution but local gossip ties Paul and Vincent in with Jane and reckon the lad was treated unjustly. Paul thinks only he and Vincent knew Jane was pregnant, but his wife also knew and kept it a secret believing John Crocker to be the father. When Meredith is told John was sterile she realizes her husband murdered Jane. She confronts Paul but decides to stay with him for their two children's sake. Johnny sees a photo of Vincent and recognizes him as the man smooching with Jane an hour or so before she got killed and realizes he'd been set up . He stirs up trouble by sending Paul, Vincent and Det. Symonds an identical bin to the one used as the Leyden jar that killed Jane. With it he sends a collage of heavily pregnant Jane holding hands with Paul and Vincent, all blessed by the judge who arranged his incarceration. The wives take delivery of the bins, understand the awful meaning and mayhem results. Vincent has a fatal accident trying to evade justice whilst Paul's intended apology to Johnny is misconstrued and Johnny accidentally kills him but is able to cover it as suicide.

Book Summary:

Anthony Nott joined the Metropolitan Police in 1971, which was a very different world from that of today. He describes his early experiences in the Met, including the arrest of a man for murdering a prostitute in Kings Cross. He was present when a fellow police officer was almost stabbed to death and witnessed an act of police brutality when he interrupted the beating of a petty criminal in a cell by the CID. He transferred to the county force of Dorset in 1976 where, not long after his promotion to detective sergeant, he engaged in what would be a ten-year long investigation into the disappearance of Monica Taylor and the eventual conviction of her husband, Peter, for what was almost the perfect murder – Monica’s remains were never found. He then recounts a series of murder cases in which he was involved from the murder and decapitation of a woman in Bournemouth and the random killing of another, to the extremely violent killing of a gay man in Boscombe Gardens, Bournemouth, in which it took two years to bring the killers to justice. While a detective chief inspector in Bournemouth in 1994, the chance visit of a detective sergeant from Guernsey, who was investigating a life insurance fraud, led to the re-opening of a missing person enquiry from eight years earlier, and resulted in the conviction of Russell Causley for murder, despite his wife’s body never being recovered. This book provides an insight into the methodical and transparent way in which the police investigate complicated crimes from riots to the almost perfect murders.
