Eight Detectives by Alex Pavesi – Part One

We discuss chapters 1-5 of Alex Pavesi‘s innovative 2020 metafiction ‘Eight Detectives’. Decades ago, Grant McAllister put his mathematician’s mind to writing ‘The Permutations of Detective Fiction’, which explored the quantifiable bounds that make murder mysteries what they are. Soon thereafter, an accompanying novel ‘The White Murders’ brought his theorems to life. Before it was released, Grant disappeared, but now editor Julia Hart has found his home and wants to get the book published. As they sit down to discuss the short stories within, Pavesi challenges you with deft expertise to unravel the layers of inconsistencies behind the broad layers of this complex puzzle.
