    One thought on “The Perfect Murder: Five Great Mystery Writers Create the Perfect Crime”

    1. The premise here is a man whose wife is cheating on him with his best friend writes to five crime writers for advice on how to kill her and frame the friend for her murder. (Divorce not being an option, he married this woman for her money and would be left penniless.) As someone who has been planning perfect crimes in their head since childhood I was really hoping that these writers would come up with honest scenarios, that would have been fascinating. Unfortunately their suggestions are all com [...]

    2. This funny, breezy book about how to commit the perfect murder has now been out of print for over 20 years, and it deserves a second life as a reprint or (at the very least) an e-book. It would be really fun if it could be updated to include hot new crime authors like Gillian Flynn, Ken Bruen, or Megan Abbott.The editor Jack Hitt starts things off by positing the character of a cuckolded husband Tim who wants to murder his wife, incriminate her lover, and then walk away with all her money. Tim i [...]

    3. This extremely gimmicky book has Hitt query five famous crime authors on how to commit the perfect murder, with the conceit being that this isn't just an intellectual exercise -- Hitt supposedly aims to carry out the murder for real. The correspondence between Hitt and the authors, all of whom are playing along with the premise, forms the 'story'.The whole thing fairly quickly devolves into a game of who can out-clever who. It was probably enormous fun for the writers involved -- they all faux-l [...]

    4. A bit too preciously absurd for my taste: An anonymous stranger asks five famous mystery writers for advice on how to commit the perfect murder. The proposed methods are all fairly preposterous, and the most obvious flaw--that if he follows the advice of any of them, there is someone who knows what he did--is mostly ignored, except when it can be used as a plot device on which to pile some more absurdity. This is one of those cute ideas which should have been abandoned in the planning stages.

    5. I got to page 3 and abandoned it. Cocky author. 5 other authors I know nothing about. Read other reviews. The end.
