Editorial Reviews

Tom Nolan
“Parnell Hall succeeds in making Stanley Hastings one of a kind .... BLACKMAIL is pleasantly reminiscent of an earlier era, when detectives like Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin brought some humor to their chores.”
Kirkus Reviews
“Every page quivers with comic frustration and the result is an absolute joy.” (starred)
Jon L. Breen
“Stanley’s cases also have going for them some of the deftest and trickiest puzzle-plotting in the field today.”
Sparkle Hayter
“The characters are funny, the dialogue sings, and Hall continually confounds the reader’s expectations.”
Lawrence Clay
“Here is that rare and highly readable type of novel, the one told mostly in dialogue–and very good dialogue it is, too…. Blackmail is a fun page-turner.”
