Short tales about deadly books, by top mystery authors. Attempting the perfect murder, a killer encounters the perfect cop. After years of get-rich-quick schemes, Troy Pellingham´s bank account is empty and his options are down to one: take a job in his uncle´s rare-book shop and spend his days working for an unpleasant man whose only redeeming quality is a mammoth bank account. Though well into his 80s, Uncle Rodney is the picture of good health, and the day when Troy will inherit the old man´s money seems very far away. But then Troy gets a brilliant idea: why shelve books for a living when he can kill for a fortune? After the deed is done, a peculiarly shabby police detective comes to call. Lieutenant Columbo seems dimwitted, and Troy expects he will have no trouble putting him off the scent. But as the noose tightens around his neck, Troy realizes that no murder is too perfect for Columbo. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fred Berman.

Winner of the 2018 Republic of Consciousness Prize.Longlisted for the 2018 Dylan Thomas prize.New Statesman Books of the Year 2017.The Telegraph Books of the Year 2017.The Guardian Best Books of the Year 2017.The White Review Books of the Year 2017.Australian Book Review Books of the Year 2017.This debut collection from Eley Williams centres upon the difficulties of communication and the way in which one´s thoughts - absurd, encompassing, oblique - may never be fully communicable and yet can overwhelm. Attrib. and other stories celebrates the trickiness of language just as it confronts its limits. Correspondingly, the stories are littered with the physical ephemera of language: dictionaries, dog-eared pages, bookmarks and old coffee stains on older books. This centres on the weird, tender intricacies of the everyday where characters vie to ´own´ their words, tell tall tales and attempt to define their worlds. With affectionate, irreverent and playful prose, the inability to communicate exactly what we mean dominates this bold new collection from one of Britain´s unique and most original new writers. 1.
