Trial (Stanley Hastings Mystery, #11)
by Parnell Hall
When negligence lawyer Richard Rosenberg defends a man on trial for murder, he hires Stanley Hastings to investigate The reluctant PI takes the stand, and nearly gets found in contempt of court.
"Hilarious … Mr. Hall delights in applying the classic style of high comedy to base genre material, so he can get away with the wordplay, or any other game that takes his fancy."
—Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review
"Hall develops his usual complex plot and dialogue-driven narrative, highly recommended to fans of writers like Gregory Mcdonald, Ed McBain, and (of course) Erle Stanley Gardner."
—Jon L. Breen, Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine
"Hall is a born yarn spinner. Erle Stanley Gardner would be proud. And maybe just a tad jealous."
—Dick Lochte, L.A. Times
"Reminiscent of Agatha Christie in her more ingenious mode."
—Elaine Budd, Hartford Courant
