Overview

'Are you happy in your life?' Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious. Before he wakes to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits. Before the man he's never met smiles down at him and says, 'Welcome back, my friend.' In this world he's woken up to, Jason's life is not the one he knows. His wife is not his wife. His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor, but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable. Something impossible. Is it this world or the other that's the dream? And even if the home he remembers is real, how can Jason possibly make it back to the family he loves? The answers lie in a journey more wondrous and horrifying than anything he could've imagined - one that will force him to confront the darkest parts of himself even as he battles a terrifying, seemingly unbeatable foe. From the author of the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy, Dark Matter is a brilliantly plotted tale that is at once sweeping and intimate, mind-bendingly strange and profoundly human - a relentlessly surprising thriller about choices, paths not taken, and how far we'll go to claim the lives we dream of.

Brilliant. A book to remember. I think Blake Crouch just invented something new -- Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series It's been a long time since a novel sucked me in and kept me turning pages the way this one did. Exceptional -- Andy Weir, #1 New York Times bestselling author of <i>The Martian</i> A masterful, truly original work of suspense. Crouch delivers laser-focused prose . . . and a touching, twisted love story that plays out in ways you'll never see coming -- Harlan Coben Wow. I gulped down Dark Matter in one sitting and put it down awed and amazed by the ride. It's fast, smart, addictive - and the most creative, head-spinning novel I've read in ages -- Tess Gerritsen, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Gravity</i> It also might be the most helter-skelter, race-to-the-finish-line thriller you'll read all year * Observer * Terse prose, strong characterisation and clever twists make for a quick, smart, engrossing read * Financial Times * Blake Crouch's Dark Matter is a mind-bending thriller of the first order, not merely a rollicking entertainment but a provocative investigation into the nature of second chances. I dare you to put it down, because I sure couldn't -- Justin Cronin, New York Times bestselling author of The Passage Trilogy Dark Matter is the kind of book the word thriller was coined for - it's a shooting star through multiple genres, posing fundamental questions about identity and reality before revealing itself as, at its core, a love story -- Joseph Finder, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Guilty Minds</i> and <i>Suspicion</i> An addictive read! You're in for an intelligent, breath-taking ride -- John Lescroat, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>The Fall</i> A mind-blowing sci-fi/suspense/love-story mash-up * Entertainment Weekly * Excellent characterization and well-crafted tension...the rousing and heartfelt ending will leave readers cheering * Publishers Weekly * Suspenseful, frightening, and sometimes poignant * Kirkus * Crouch keeps the pace swift and the twists exciting. Readers who liked his Wayward Pines trilogy will probably devour this speculative thriller in one sitting [as will] those who enjoy roller-coaster reads in the vein of Harlan Coben * Booklist *
