Tues, Nov 10: Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson: Years ago, Boston bookseller Malcolm Kershaw compiled a list of the genre’s most unsolvable murders which he titled “Eight Perfect Murders.”  When an FBI agent comes knocking on his door one snowy day she’s looking for information about unsolved murders that look eerily similar to the killings on Mal’s old list.
