The story started off a little slow (just the first few pages). But overall I enjoyed it. Great for a quick read and not totally predictable. For a free ebook, I would definitely recommend...

The story was good but anyone who reads crime novels on a regular basis will see the mistakes in her "perfect" crime as she makes them. Only 50 pages but pretty good for a free book.

Predictable,very short book. If your an avid mystery suspense reader you will figure out the ending and all the flaws in the main characters thinking.

I really liked this. Since I'm familiar with all the locations mentioned, it was an added bonus.

I liked the basic idea, but the characterization for the main character was barely visible. She talks about why she does what she does, but we never actually see the depth of anger and hurt she obviously feels. And also, the ending is a little too abrupt. It does not lead up to it at all, and though it was a good idea, overall it was poorly planned.

The Perfect Crime is the second short story I have read by Jack Erickson (the first being The Stalker) and I was not disappointed. The author has a remarkable gift for taking a small narrative and turning it into an exciting page turner. While the story is only about 20 pages in length, the author portrays the essence of the characters and engages the reader in a stimulating account of murder, turmoil, and mystery. The Perfect Crime, written in first person by the main character, delves into what happens to a woman scorned and how she chose to handle her angst against a philandering husband. I was very impressed with The Perfect Crime. It takes a lot of talent to take a small chronicle and expand on the story so the reader is not left with many questions. The reader does not get a lot of information on the background of the characters. However, I have to say that the lack of extraneous information made the story more enjoyable. The author captured the emotions of the characters perfectly, and I could experience Mrs. Harding’s point of view through the author’s writing. I was impressed by the final and surprising twist. Mr. Erickson has a talent for taking what could be a long, drawn out novel into a succinct and intriguing mystery that needs no further explanation. I recommend this novella and am looking forward to reading more from the author.
