The author of Rules for Perfect Murders is back – with a chilling and fiendish puzzle of a novel everyone will be talking about next Spring.
If you’re on the list you’re marked for death.
The envelope is unremarkable. There is no return address. It contains a single, folded, sheet of white paper.
The envelope drops through the mail slot like any other piece of post. But for the nine complete strangers who receive it – each of them recognising just one name, their own, on the enclosed list – it will be the most life altering letter they ever receive. It could also be the last, as one by one, they start to meet their end.
'I loved this, Swanson's sharp and insightful characterization brought to life a fascinating premise, beautifully worked out.' – Ann Cleeves
'With economical strokes of his pen, Peter Swanson presents us with a clever homage to the Golden Age of Mystery which keeps you guessing right to the end.' – Peter May
