Stuart Harrison lived in New Zealand for many years, where he met his wife. They moved to Europe while he tried to become a published author - and achieved his ambition with THE SNOW FALCON. They now live in Sydney with their two sons.Review:
Acclaim for Stuart HarrisonTHE SNOW FALCON:`Harrison is set to become a literary star' Mirror`Harrison's first novel is an accomplished [mix] of Kes and The Horse Whisperer' Mail on Sunday`A heartfelt story by a distinctive new voice' Paullina SimonsSTILL WATER:`From its eerie opening...to the tension-charged denouement, we are smoothly sucked in to the tale...On one level, the book is an old-fashioned thriller in the best sense, its meticulous plot full of suspense and red herrings. But in a neat subversion of the mystery genre...this smart, absorbing novel also grapples subtly with the idea that things are rarely black and white...even with murder, things are not always what they seem.'
