A Perfect Crime

by A Yi

Terrifyingly, bleakly funny view of life in modern China, as the teenage narrator selects and kills a suitable victim, whilst ensuring that his readers will always be one step behind. A book that will make me think - and think.


A thud sounded behind me as someone fell to their seat .... I did regret killing her daughter in some ways, but if I hadn't committed a murder so intolerable to our hypocritical society what would have been the point?
