Parnell Hall
AUTHOR

Parnell Hall

Parnell was presented with the Life Achievement Award by the Private Eye Writers of America at the 2015 Shamus Awards banquet. Happily, this coincided with the publication of A FOOL FOR A CLIENT, his 20th Stanley Hastings private eye novel. Stanley is not the fool in the title however, that honor belongs to his boss, negligence lawyer Richard Rosenberg, on trial for murdering his girlfriend.

Not to be outdone, the Puzzle Lady, Cora Felton, finds herself on trial for murder in PRESUMED PUZZLED, due in January. Cora is defended by attractive young attorney Becky Baldwin, but no one doubts who is actually pulling the strings.

The first 15 out-of-print Stanley Hastings private eye novels are now on kindle, including the Edgar and Shamus nominated DETECTIVE and the Shamus and Lefty nominee MOVIE.

The 5 Steve Winslow courtroom dramas (THE BAXTER TRUST, THE ANONYMOUS CLIENT, etc), are on kindle, as well as the 6th, never-before-published novel, THE INNOCENT WOMAN.

Parnell is a former President of the Private Eye Writers of America, and a member of Sisters in Crime. He lives in New York City.
