George Foss never thought he'd see her again, but on a late-August night in Boston, there she is, in his local bar, Jack's Tavern. When George first met her, she was an eighteen-year-old college freshman from Sweetgum, Florida. She and George became inseparable in their first fall semester, so George was devastated when he got the news that she had committed suicide over Christmas break. But, as he stood in the living room of the girl's grieving parents, he realized the girl in the photo on their mantelpiece - the one who had committed suicide - was not his girlfriend. Later, he discovered the true identity of the girl he had loved - and of the things she may have done to escape her past.

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.

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.
