About the Author

A. B. Jewell is the pseudonym for a Pulitzer Prize-winning technology reporter. He lives in San Francisco.


"The Man Who Wouldn't Die does for Silicon Valley what Carl Hiaasen did for Florida, which is rollicking fun if you'd like your future to be a dystopia of terabytes. I'll be first in line, or online, or retina scan, to get A.B. Jewell's next installment." -- Tim Dorsey, New York Times Bestselling Author

"If Philip Marlowe was a standup comic he might sound something like Fitch, the wisecracking, tech-savvy PI in this funny and twisted rejiggering of the classic detective novel. Think Silicon Valley meets The Big Sleep." -- Mark Haskell Smith, author of Blown

"A rambunctious Valley takedown comedy-thriller that lampoons the self-serious preening of the digerati." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"May well set [A.B. Jewell] up as the Carl Hiaasen of Silicon Valley." -- Sam Sifton, New York Times

"Forever Man is Dashiell Hammett 2.0, Raymond Chandler with emojis, James M. Cain after a trip to the Apple Store: The classic hardboiled detective novel, updated for 21st Century Silicon Valley and made hilarious. Even if you've read every P.I. novel out there, you've never read one like this before." -- Brad Parks, Shamus Award-winning author of Closer Than You Know

"A hard-boiled, hilarious detective novel about Silicon Valley." -- New York Post

"Stuffed with so much invention. ... A Hiaasen-esque farce." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Silicon Valley's next great detective novel (maybe its only one!), The Man Who Wouldn't Die is hilarious. Get this great read, a perfecto takedown of our self-absorbed land, which is also a perfect summer read." -- Kara Swisher

"The pseudonymous Jewell takes an amusing swipe at the hardboiled detective novel and the world of high tech in his fun debut.... Sharp, satirical observations on tech-dependent society and eccentrically comic characters keep the action moving. Jewell is off to a promising start." -- Publishers Weekly
