Reviews

Named One of The Times' Best Books of 2021
September 2021 Indie Next Pick

"A voraciously readable page-turner of a novel, part creepypasta, part thought-experiment."--Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother and Radicalized

"A surreal premise and an unconventional revelation fuel a cosmic journey....a wholly original novel that's bound to frustrate just as many as it entrances."--Esquire

"A fascinating, compulsively readable thriller."--The Guardian

"Imagine Donna Tartt's The Secret History getting a good edit at last, and you glimpse something of this book's occult power. Essential reading for the gathering dark."--The Times Saturday Review

"An entertainingly mind-bending read."--Financial Times

"Audaciously clever and well-written...a quite superb piece of storytelling: vivid, thought-provoking and unsettling."--SFX Magazine (5 stars)

"A creepy thriller that reads a little like Stephen King writing Glengarry Glen Ross."--GeekDad

"Imagine what would happen if Chuck Palahniuk, Enrico Fermi, and the Brothers Grimm got together to raise a child...Sci-fi, snark-horror and futuristic thriller fans will love it."--Terri Schlichenmeyer for The Guam Daily Post

"[An] enjoyable slipstream thriller....Readers with a taste for the synchronicity of the cosmic with the commonplace are sure to be entertained."--Publishers Weekly

"Dare To Know will prompt the reader to consider the philosophical implications of life and death itself."--Booklist
