They call him the Blood Bath Killer -- a man who has now killed two Boston women by sneaking into their homes, filling the bathtub with their blood, and making off with their bodies. And everything suggests that he's poised to strike again. 

Out to stop him are two good cops -- Detective Angel Alves and his hard-driven boss, Sergeant Wayne Mooney -- and waiting in the wings to provide justice is a team of young prosecutors led by Assistant District Attorney Conrad Darget. His team, a Homicide Response Team featuring attorneys handpicked by the DA to represent the office at all murder scenes, is managed by the dedicated Liz Moore and consists of a diverse group, from the erudite but troubled Mitch Beaulieu to the aggressive but so-far-unsuccessful Nick Costa to the hard-working and principled Brendan Sullivan. 

But as the bodies continue to disappear, the case becomes more personal, difficult, and dangerous for everyone involved. First, a victim turns out to be a childhood friend of Alves's. Then, it becomes clear that the only connection between victims is time spent on juries at the South Bay District Courthouse -- the Homicide Response Team's headquarters -- which means that the killer is among them. 

A gripping first novel distinguished by breakneck pacing, accessible prose, and intriguing detail of the world of criminal law, Eight in the Box will thrill all fans of commercial suspense.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 11/17/2013

    " The only reason I read as much of this as I did was because I was home sick and away from books. The writing was not good. The plot was so-so, but it tried to do too much. It just wasn't moving. "

    " Great book about a crime in Boston. Quick read. Raffi was one of my father in laws students at Boston Latin. Cant wait for his next book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 5/31/2013

    " The tracking of a serial killer - it'sthe author was in the DA's office for years and obviously knows a great deal about the legal system; however, it was easy to figure out the perpetrator very early on, which took a lot of the fun out of the book for me... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pure | 5/21/2013

    " I got to hear the author speak at Crime Bake recently. I found him so interesting I wanted to check out his book. Unfortunately, I found it very disjointed. All the characters seemed very shallow. There were red herrings strewn all about that made no sense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 2/4/2013

    " Kind of a Boston Legan meets Criminal Minds type book. I would read another one by this author (this is his first novel). Surprise ending I didn't see coming. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Penny Ramirez | 1/6/2013

    " This was a big disappointment. Strong premise, but then just got repetitive. Stuck it out to the end to see if he'd throw in a good twist. Wrong. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 11/18/2012

    " Interesting twists and turns in this book. The ending was a surprise, which I like in a good crime/suspense story. This author wrote another book, 2 in the Hat. I think I will need to check it out. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marca | 10/14/2012

    " Too lectury about society's problems "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 7/29/2012

    " not a bad read. Enjoyed the twist at the end. Only suspected it very close to the end. Left open to a continuing story. Must or will be a next book to continue the story "
