Alan Glynn - The Dark Fields
Little, Brown and Company

The Dark Fields is based on a stunningly good idea. Take a drug that will do for the mind what body enhancement drugs do for unscrupulous athletes, and imagine the startling consequences. A master storyteller, Glynn’s imagination has produced a well-researched, finely paced thriller that makes excellent use of its location.
Glynn’s pacing is brilliant, and the atmosphere of dizzying panic, and mind-spinning activity is cleverly conveyed. Stylistically assured, the structure is excellent too. The Dark Fields is indeed a rare thing: a wild compulsive ride into the greedy vortex of modern life.
