Many years ago Kershaw compiled in his blog a personal list of the eight ideal murders in crime fiction, it comprises of Agatha Christie’s A. B. C. Murders, Patricia Highsmith’s Strangers on a Train, Ira Levin’s Fatality Trap, A. A. Milne’s Red Residence Secret, Anthony Berkeley Cox’s Malice Aforethought, James M.
