Product description

Review

'Emotionally complex, richly layered and darkly funny. An addictive blend of Case Histories and Six Feet Under.' Chris Brookmyre, author, Places in the Darkness on A Dark Matter

"I was addicted from the first page; gripping, gritty and darkly funny as hell."
Erin Kelly, author, He Said/She Said on A Dark Matter

"I'd say that
A Dark Matter showcases a writer at the peak of his powers, except that with every book, Doug Johnstone just gets better.' Val McDermid on A Dark Matter

"This is a must for those seeking strong, authentic, intelligent female protagonists."
Publishers Weekly starred review on The Big Chill --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
