Description

This autumn, life is catching up with struggling novelist Thomas Quinn.

Nine years ago, his sometime friend Andrew Black wrote a million-copy-selling mystery novel - and then disappeared. Now could it be that Quinn is being stalked by the hero of Black’s book? His wife Imogen usually has the answers but she’s working on the other side of the world and talking to her on webcam just isn’t the same.

Quinn finds himself in a world that might well be coming apart at the seams. If he can find Black, he might start finding answers.

Maxwell’s Demon forges an entirely new blend of mystery - somewhere between detective fiction, ghost story and philosophical quest.

With the same white-knuckle thrills as Hall’s first novel, The Raw Shark Texts, this new book is also a freewheeling investigation into the magic power locked inside the alphabet, love through the looking glass, the bond between parents and children, and, at its heart, the quest for meaning in a world that, with each passing season, seems to become more chaotic and untidy.
