    Huit crimes parfaits

    À paraître
  • From a master of suspense... Eight classic murders. A single crime obsessive. Countless thrilling twists. 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?

  • Londres-Boston, vol de nuit. Ted Severson rencontre la superbe et mystérieuse Lily Kintner. Ils bavardent, boivent des cocktails et, peu à peu, démarrent un jeu de la vérité où Ted se dévoile à Lily. Il en est certain, Miranda, sa femme, le trompe. Il en vient même à confier qu'il tuerait bien l'épouse volage. Pour Ted, bafoué, l'idée semble même presque raisonnable. D'autant que Lily déclare le plus sérieusement du monde qu'elle est prête à l'aider. Après tout, des tas de gens méritent de mourir : parce qu'ils mentent, trompent l'aimé ou blessent les autres sans remords...
    Mais Lily n'a pas tout dit à Ted. Elle s'est bien gardée de lui révéler son passé de tueuse et d'experte en tromperies. Les conspirateurs se retrouvent ainsi vite pris dans un jeu du chat et de la souris des plus dangereux.
      Mortellement addictif. Marc Fernandez, Metronews.

  • "Swanson rips us from one startling plot twist to the next... A true tour de force." --Lisa Gardner "Fiendish good fun." --Anthony Horowitz 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 Bookstore 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.

  • 'They had a secret, the two of them, and there was no better way to start a friendship than with a secret.' When Hen and Lloyd move into their new house in West Dartford, Mass., they're relieved to meet, at their first block party, the only other seemingly-childless couple in their neighborhood, Matthew and Mira Dolamore. Turns out they live in the Dutch Colonial immediately next door. When they're invited over for dinner, however, things take a sinister turn when Hen thinks she sees something suspicious in Matthew's study. Could this charming, mild-mannered College Professor really be hiding a dark secret, one that only Hen, whose been battling her own problems with depression and medication, could know about? Lloyd certainly doesn't seem to believe her, and so, forced together, Hen and Matthew start to form an unlikely bond. But who, if anyone, is really in danger? From its deeply unsettling opening, Peter Swanson, the master of contemporary domestic thrillers, fashions a novel as brilliant, dark, coruscating and surprising as Patricia Highsmith and Ira Levin at their very best.

  • Chacune de ses peurs

    Peter Swanson

    " Avec ce troisième roman, Peter Swanson fait sortir un délicieux monstre du placard et, inexorablement, grâce à des personnages superbement campés, l'angoisse monte. " Booklist, critique étoilée Lorsque Kate Priddy se voit proposer par son cousin Corbin Dell d'échanger leurs appartements de Boston et de Londres, la jeune femme, récemment victime d'enlèvement, accepte avec joie, pensant que cela l'aidera à remonter la pente.
    Mais dès son arrivée à Boston, elle apprend qu'Audrey, la voisine de Corbin, a été assassinée. Questionnée par la police, Kate commence à sérieusement douter de son cousin : elle découvre la vérité sur un locataire certes sympathique mais qui passait son temps à épier la victime, et rencontre l'ex-petit ami de la jeune femme qui, lui, n'a plus aucun doute sur l'identité du coupable. Corbin a en effet laissé des indices troublants dans l'appartement d'Audrey avant de disparaître...
    Très clairement hitchcockien, ce thriller psychologique au climat étouffant rappelle Fenêtre sur cour et Seule dans la nuit. Voyeurisme, trahison, menaces, meurtre : tous les ingrédients sont réunis pour faire perdre son sang-froid à l'héroïne. Jusqu'à l'effroyable final. Chacune de ses peurs s'inscrit dans la grande tradition littéraire de Patricia Highsmith, James M. Cain, Paula Hawkins et Gillian Flynn.
