Waterstones Says

A reticent crime writer, a shrewd editor, and an enthrallingly layered literary mystery form the basis of Pavesi’s uniquely crafted Mediterranean crime thriller.

All murder mysteries follow a simple set of rules.

Grant McAllister, an author of crime fiction and professor of mathematics, once sat down and worked them all out.

But that was thirty years ago. Now he's living a life of seclusion on a quiet Mediterranean island - until Julia Hart, a sharp, ambitious editor, knocks on his door. His early work is being republished and together the two of them must revisit those old stories.

An author, hiding from his past, and an editor, probing inside it.

But as she reads the stories, Julia is unsettled to realise that there are parts that don't make sense. Intricate clues that seem to reference a real murder.

One that's remained unsolved for thirty years . . .

If Julia wants answers, she must triumph in a battle of wits with a dangerously clever adversary.

But she must tread carefully: she knows there's a mystery, but she doesn't yet realise there's already been a murder . . .

“A quirky murder mystery”

This was a very quirky novel and one I thoroughly enjoyed. I loved the format of the book and how there were seven different short murder mystery stories within the overall novel. This made it quite the page-turner... More

“Enjoyable”

I was sent a copy of Eight Detectives by Alex Pavesi to read and review by NetGalley
This novel read rather like a book of short stories interspersed with chapters of explanation, which I suppose is sort of what it... More
