A blend of detective story and science
“Maxwell’s Demon”
Thomas Quinn is having the strangest autumn. Nine years ago, his mentor Andrew Black wrote a million-copy-selling mystery novel — and then disappeared.

Thomas’s wife Imogen usually has the answers, but she’s on the other side of the world. If he can just find Black, perhaps Thomas might start finding some answers.

Steven Hall’s “Maxwell’s Demon” is a freewheeling investigation into the magic power locked inside the alphabet, the bond between parents and children, and, at its heart, the quest for meaning in a chaotic and untidy world.

Steven Hall’s first novel won the Borders Original Voices Award, the Somerset Maugham Award, and was shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award. The book has been translated into 30 languages.
