Killer narrators…

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

There are hundreds of thousands of crime/thriller/mystery books in the world with murderous goings on (many of which we publish I might add…) but how many of these books are actually narrated by the killers themselves?
Well,  Richard Jay Parker has come up with a few of his favourites here on Flashlight Worthy.

It’s a cool idea for a book site – letting people post their favourite books under any category of choice. You’ll find a list of books under random topics like “My Favorite Locked Door Mysteries“, “The Best Picture Books about Manners” or “Odes to Dead Spouses“.

Of course now I’m wracking my brain to think of other books narrated by killers and am failing miserably. Anyone?

Ummm, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie? It’s over a decade since I read that though!
