Rules For Perfect Murders – Peter Swanson ★★★★

Blurb; 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?

My Review; This one I had seen all over social media and hyped up. I have read this author before so was expecting something good. I actually devoured this in two sittings. I just loved it all. All over a list of books eh. It’s a very clever story. I loved the little second hand bookshop setting for the most part of the book.

I actually just lost myself into this story & I noted all the books mentioned within the story down to look up for myself. It was intriguing the whole plot kept me hooked figuring out who this person was killing people. But not just that shocking secrets emerged! Couldn’t believe any of it. Would not have guessed any of it. Far too clever. A brilliant gripping read. Fast paced. Was over before I knew it. Loved it all! Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
