Description

THE AUTHOR: A graduate of Trinity College, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and Emerson College, Peter Swanson lives in Somerville, Massachusetts with his wife and cat.

Nine people receive a typed list of nine names, their own name plus eight others that they have never heard of or met before. There is always a book in her bag (if there isn’t one in her hand) and she will ALWAYS swoon over an F Scott Fitzgerald quote.Windows users should also consider upgrading to Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, or switching to Firefox or Chrome.

But I think that that is kind of to be expected in some ways, just because there are nine people on the list, and a limited amount of time that they are going to be alive given that they are all targets of a killer. Swanson honors genre traditions by arousing expectations only to subvert them—and then subvert them again. He caught a connection between the lists and Christie’s classic novel, and read it several times while the investigation was ongoing. Although I went over it at the beginning of the book I really never had to refer to it again because I was able to keep track of the nine people.A list with nine names is posted to each of the people named on it, who seemingly have no connection to each other. The author is once again making links between popular mystery books and his story (like Eight Perfect Murders) which is fine but I wouldn't want it to become a thing. There are multiple characters in addition to the nine names so I wrote a cheat sheet from the opening page to avoid scrolling back to reference. What seems initially to be a fairly straightforward take on Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None turns out to be much, much more . Even those who are identified and provided protection are not safe with a killer on the loose who will leave no stone unturned in finishing off his intended victims.
