• Brilliantly original and absurdly compelling ... it’s a book you’ll read in one, frantic gasp

  • Richard Beard is one of those rare writers whose novels are at once radically inventive and brilliantly entertaining. Acts of the Assassins … is as joyously original as it is a page-turner to read

    Tom Holland, Daily Mail
  • The Acts of the Assassins is…spectacularly successful. It is thoughtful and clever and brutal and true… It is a Chinese puzzle box of a novel. A garden of forking paths. A page-turner. A modern classic

    Benjamin Judge, Book Munch
  • Extraordinarily funny...confident and enchanting
