"In my films, characters have been strangled… stabbed… shot… they have plummeted from great heights… been bludgeoned… slowly poisoned… they have been blown up… asphyxiated by gas and pecked to ribbons by birds. I plead guilty to all these deaths. So what is my greatest legacy? Murder."

Alfred Hitchcock delivers these words to a youthful, obsessive fan on the set of his film Frenzy. But, in the aftermath of this fateful meeting, why do certain people in the young fan’s life seem to develop a habit of dying in ways that could have been lifted from a Hitchcock movie?

Why, decades later, is he writing his confessions from inside a prison cell?

Who is The Avenger and what do his victims do to provoke his wrath?

For the answers to these and other Hitchcockian questions, take a journey into the dark and twisted mind of The Man Who Knew Too Much Hitchcock, a tale of madness, movies and multiple murder.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

An enjoyable novel with an interesting character. I wish I knew more about Hitchcock films as I suspect I probably missed some of the nuances. Great plot.
Returning to the BookcrossingNI meetup for one of the others to enjoy.
