Elliott Hall was born and raised in Canada. He now lives in London.Review:
'The First Stone is a knockout debut with the confidence to establish its world gradually ... Strange's sardonic wit makes him the perfect guide to his troublingly familiar landscape' -- Guardian 'The best read under a sweltering sun...against a deftly drawn backdrop, it is ingenious and witty' -- Telegraph 'In many ways the most intriguing of new John Murray crop ... Strange is a very sympathetic hero, who does what private eyes do best by stirring the hornets' nest (and these are some pretty whacky hornets) and a fabulous sense of pace is engendered from page one. This is a very impressive first thriller indeed. More are promised; or if they're not, should be' -- Shots 'The prose style is smooth and entertaining ... Hall's world-building remains excellent throughout, creating a truly unsettling future America' -- SFX Magazine 'A sharp and original debut novel' -- Tangled Web 'It's a really good, traditional private eye story in its own right, coupled with a subtle and believable picture of a fundamentalist state' -- Morning Star 'A menacing portrait of an all too plausible future ... a very readable, fast-paced thriller' -- The Big Issue 'An ingenious twist ... The first in a trilogy, Hall's novel combines pacy storytelling with a disturbing dystopian vision' -- Mail on Sunday
