• Terrific. Alex Pavesi knows the genre inside out. One of the year's most entertaining crime novels

    Sunday Times, Crime Book of the Month
  • Dizzying, dazzling - a potent potion of a thriller, a brew of bibliophilia (think The Shadow of the Wind), wire-taut tension (The Talented Mr. Ripley), and plot swerves so sharp and sudden you risk whiplash with each turn of the page, as bold as the best of Michael Connelly and Lisa Gardner. When did you last read a genuinely original thriller? The wait is over.

    A J Finn, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
  • So, so clever. A twisty story and an education in the maths of murder mysteries, Agatha Christie would take her hat off to this one - bravo!

    Sarah Pinborough
  • Alex Pavesi is a lively writer . . . It feels like a game of Clue-do-ku

  • An elegantly structured, intellectually challenging and completely unique thriller that grips like a vice

    Sophie Hannah, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Killings at Kingfisher Hill
  • This is both a wonderfully tricksy debut and a loving tribute to the golden age of crime fiction

    Mail on Sunday
  • It's rare for me to read a book in a single day, but I couldn't put Eight Detectives down. Compelling, clever, and beautifully-constructed. It deserves to be huge. I genuinely wanted to applaud at the end

    Alex North
  • A box of delights . . . Pavesi's revelations are completely unexpected, right up to the end

    New York Times
  • An absolute triumph of a novel. I read it in two greedy gulps. Intelligent and compelling storytelling. Utterly brilliant

    Ali Land, bestselling author of Good Me, Bad Me
  • This super-smart homage to the Agatha Christie tradition is a must. Stylish, ingenious and great fun
