THE LAST DAYS OF JACK SPARKS
"A magnificent millennial nightmare" ALAN MOORE, creator of Watchmen and V For Vendetta.
Wow, seriously hard to put down... chilling and utterly immersive" M.R. CAREY, author of The Girl With All The Gifts.
Selected by Simon Mayo's Radio 2 Book Club! A Not The Booker prize longlist selection of Summer 2016!
THE MOST CHILLING AND UNPREDICTABLE THRILLER OF THE YEAR.
Jack Sparks died while writing this book.
It was no secret that journalist Jack Sparks had been researching the occult for his new book. No stranger to controversy, he'd already triggered a furious Twitter storm by mocking an exorcism he witnessed.
Then there was that video: forty seconds of chilling footage that Jack repeatedly claimed was not of his making, yet was posted from his own YouTube account.
Nobody knew what happened to Jack in the days that followed - until now.
Out in paperback right now in the UK, US and Canada, this standalone book delivers the answers to those questions and many more. Check out the book which The Three author Sarah Lotz describes as "scarier than watching The Exorcist in an abandoned asylum, wittier than the lovechild of Stephen Fry and Charlie Brooker"!
