Ian D Hall is a writer, he has written reviews and poetry for over 10 years on the acclaimed Liverpool Sound and Vision review site and has worldwide fans.
He was co-host on the nationally charting local radio show, Sunday Sessions at HCR 92.3fm and the archive is on www.mixcloud.com/beyondbooksmedia
He has published two superb collections of poetry that are as wry and raw as any of the famed Beat Poets and now he has found a perfect publisher for his new thrillers, Beaten Track publishing. Ian lives local so we can source signed/dedicated copies.
Set on Malta and written partly as a homage to the beat generation writers, The Death of Poetry is a taut psychological exploration of relationships and situations that entwine the characters we observe through the narration. Opening with a seemingly unsuspicious death at a facility for ‘the unhinged’, our island detective at first feels it is just a circumstantial accident; after all, many inside are damaged and alone, having dealt with their addictions and afflictions. It is when a fresh victim appears, most definitely murdered, that he begins to unravel the fragile links and faint memories of those he now must confront from his own past—one he may not have wanted to remember for himself.
