A major new author in the Robert Goddard tradition joins HarperCollins. Mortal Remains is a brilliantly plotted story of crime and passion that unravels in the double-narratives of a woman and her recently returned ne'er-do-well brother in a large house in Oxfordshire. There are elements of crime and psychological thriller, but principally, this is just a fabulously good read that you could recommend to anybody who doesn't mind staying up all night to finish a book.

Gregory Hall has been a teacher, education officer and solicitor. He is married with two children and lives in Bath.Review:
"A splendid pacy blend of romance, thriller and scientific mystery with a compellingly intricate plot" Robert Goddard "A real mystery thriller. What an achievement to conceive such an ingenious combination of convoluted complications and how cunningly it all came right in the end. A really good read" John Timpson "Occasionally it happens! A reviewer picks up a first novel by an unknown author and finds he has a jewel. That is the case with The Dark Backward" Books Magazine "This atonishingly assured first novel falls into 'rattlingly good thriller' category. The tension builds relentlessly: I couldn't put the book down till the last paragraph and that was at 3 am" Good Housekeeping "A highly impressive debut! wonderfully atmospheric with a hazy mist of violence and regret reminiscent of early Barbara Vine" The Sunday Times 'No-one can accuse Gregory Hall of depriving readers of excitement in his riveting new novel MORTAL REMAINS! nothing is what it seems in this compelling tale' Oxford Mail
