Praise

“Reminiscent of Joseph Wambaugh . . . [The killer is a] riveting character who jumps off the page.”—Boston Globe
 
“A startling denouement catches all involved by complete surprise.”—Wichita Falls Times Record News

“Raffi Yessayan’s Eight in the Box is an awesome, chilling legal thriller. It took me back to the days when I was chasing down the darker elements with Eddie Egan and Sonny Grosso while researching and writing The French Connection. Yessayan may be the best prosecutor-turned-crime-writer to hit the streets since George V. Higgins and Scott Turow.”Robin Moore, author of The French Connection and The Set Up

“With its superb dead-on dialogue and criminal procedure so authentic I felt as if I had slipped under crime-scene tape and disappeared into an underworld meant only for cops and killer, Eight in the Box had me hooked and on the edge of my seat from page 1. This is one of the most shocking and accurate crime novels ever written.”–Andrew McAleer, professor of crime fiction, Boston College, and author of Mystery Writing in a Nutshell

“If you enjoy baffling murders investigated by credible, indelible homicide detectives and prosecutors, you’re going to love Eight in the Box. A onetime assistant district attorney in Boston, Raffi Yessayan conveys both an air of authenticity and a sense of dedication in describing the men and women who must ‘speak for the dead.’ This is a wonderful debut crime novel.”
–Jeremiah Healy, author of The Only Good Lawyer and Turnabout
