“A powerful story gracefully told by one who knows.”
—Robert B. Parker

“Raffi Yessayan's EIGHT IN THE BOX is an awesome, sometimes chilling legal thriller. It took me back to the days when I was chasing down the darker elements with Eddie Eagan 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

EIGHT IN THE BOX had me hooked and on the edge of my seat from page one. Superb dead-on dialogue and criminal procedure so authentic I felt like I had slipped under the crime scene tape and disappeared into an underworld meant only for cops and killers. 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 . An experienced 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.' A wonderful debut crime novel.”
—Jeremiah Healy, author of The Only Good Lawyer and Turnabout
