The First Stone : Dystopian crime noir with a killer twist Paperback / softback

Part of the Strange Trilogy series


***Perfect for fans of Black Mirror and The Handmaid's Tale*** America has been redeemed. Felix Strange, veteran of a disastrous war in the Middle East, has returned to his native New York, to find his home nation changed.

With a Christian extremist administration in the White House, and the Crusade of Love preparing the Untied States for the Second Coming, a new America is about to be born. When a high-ranking preacher is found dead, Strange is tasked with bringing his murderer to justice.

But what begins as a routine investigation will soon reveal the terrifying ways in which America is lurching towards totalitarianism itself. The First Stone is the first novel in Elliott Hall's cult hit Strange Trilogy: the eerily prescient series which foresaw the advent of new puritanism, and the rise of the American right. ************Praise for The First Stone'The First Stone is a knockout . . . Strange's sardonic wit makes him the perfect guide to his troublingly familiar landscape' - Guardian'Ingenious and witty' - Daily Telegraph'Outstanding' - Independent'Wonderful' - The Times'An ingenious twist . . . Hall's novel combines pacy storytelling with a disturbing dystopian vision' - Mail on Sunday
