Praise

“A terrific mystery, a classic of misdirection very much in the manner of Agatha Christie or John Dickson Carr'” - Washington Post

“Behold, the perfect escapist drug! If I could crush this book into a powder and snort it, I would.”  Vulture

“A real page-turner… Highly recommended” - Classic Mystery

“Ayatsuji’s brilliant and richly atmospheric puzzle will appeal to fans of golden age whodunits… Every word counts, leading up to a jaw-dropping but logical reveal” - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A stunner of a plot, with an ending which I simply could not believe when it was first revealed… Rivals Soji Shimada’s The Tokyo Zodiac Murders for sheer audacity and ingenuity” - At the Scene of the Crime

“A knowing tribute to classic crime, it features all manner of puzzles, including locked rooms, jigsaws and magic tricks.” – Mark Sanderson, The Times
 
“highly ingenious” - Laura Wilson, Guardian

“The Decagon House Murders, is a thrilling homage to Christie’s And Then There Were None, following a group of amateur sleuths on a trip to a lonely island, the site of several unsolved murders. In the opening chapter, one character remarks: “Enough gritty realism please! What mystery novels need are a great detective, a mansion, a shady cast of residents, bloody murders, impossible crimes and never-before-seen-tricks played by the murder.” It’s impossible not to agree.” – The Guardian
