What I Tell You In the Dark - A Novel
Publisher: The Overlook Press
This debut thriller of angels, demons, and corporate espionage is “part fantasy, part gripping depiction of delusional madness . . . Take the plunge” (Vanity Fair). A nameless angel has been out of God’s favor since things went wrong with his last mission, two thousand years ago. He has spent the intervening millennia watching humanity fall into moral disrepair. Lately, he’s been watching Will, a London businessman attempting to expose his company’s dark dealings to the press. But Will’s campaign is not going well. In a moment of weakness and bravado, the angel decides to spiritually take Will over—“jumping in” as he did with Jesus of Nazareth. But as the angel comes up against demonic forces fighting to maintain the status quo, Will increasingly loses his grip on himself. Is he truly caught in a cosmic struggle of good versus evil . . . or merely a delusional man crushed by the hypocrisies of modern society? Powerfully written, fast-paced, and perfect for fans of Chuck Palahniuk, Joe Hill, and Bret Easton Ellis, What I Tell You in the Dark is an unsettling story of omnipotence, mayhem, capitalism, and corruption.
