Book Description

THE BLEAK DOOR - Top seller # 1 Amazon's category on promotional days!
The revelation of the year - A science fiction thriller novel

The President of the United States is abruptly hit by a serious and unknown disease. Suddenly, and while his successor was being discussed, he miraculously recovers. Relief rapidly spreads among his assistants and public opinion. The most powerful man on the planet has come back. Or, at least, that is what everyone thought. 

 
A different enemy, beyond our understanding, expands his webs. Soon changes in laws, persecutions, and weird and flabbergasting experiments start to take place. A top-notch interdisciplinary team is clandestinely put together in order to grasp the inexplicable and thus put up some sort of resistance. They were not aware that the knowledge of that truth might only be the beginning of the nightmare. 
 
The Bleak Door tells us about a world becoming oppressive, violent, without any clear apparent reasons. It faces us with complex questions of our inner self and our response towards  manipulation both from an individual and a social level. It positions us before our selfishness, our decisions. And, above all, their consequences. 
 
An electrifying, obscure, fast-paced story from its very first page. SCI-FI Thriller.

From the author
I wrote this book, from its very first line, imagining that you, my reader, would accompany me in future times in its reading. And I sensed from the very start that you were there, next to me, on this journey packed with suspense, moving feelings and experiences.
The Bleak Door is that spot where I hope you and me will be interwoven in the world of words and thoughts. And that this experience will transform us forever.


Editorial Reviews

Review

★★★★★ Engrossing story!
"What a book! It starts out in a time where everything is running smoothly (as smoothly as can be on Earth anyway) when suddenly everything changes. You're taken through these changes from the viewpoints of several very different characters. When all is revealed... well, let's just say that it's mind blowing yet believable for anyone familiar with string theory or temporal displacement. All in all an excellent thriller."
(shiny happy people - Review on Amazon)

★★★★★ 
Exciting and taught thriller
"This is the first book that I've ever been inclined to write a review for. I enjoy reading Thriller's and Science Fiction and this book is the best of both worlds. If you enjoy either type of novel then you must read this. It has all the elements of the best Science Fiction I've read with all the action and suspense of a fast paced Thriller."
(Steven A. Furman - Review on Amazon)

About the Author

I came into the world one year before a man would walk on the moon, at the end of a decade that held the dawn of change in its guts. I was raised during a special and complex time but I retain memories of profound sensitivity and a love of knowledge that impregnated the experiences of my childhood. I look back fondly on my afternoons in the neighborhood. I can still see old the cinema where sensations, words and images appeared as if by magic before my wide eyes. Time advanced with its sure steps and my love for the seventh art spread to a passion for literature. In the pages of books I discovered that prodigious spark which unites the author's tale to the depths of our imaginations. Through reading, writing and the tests life uses to shape us, I learned and grew. Creation and vision nested deep within me. One day, four years ago, the stream of words and images that I had intoxicated myself with for so many years as reader and spectator, along with the clarity conferred by life's challenges, gave way to the writer that had been lurking within me, waiting for the chance to break free. That is how “THE BLEAK DOOR” was concocted, an intense and powerful tale, one that sticks to your skin as soon as you take it in your hands. We will travel its pages together, setting off as spectators. We will move quickly into a world of unique sensations, down a winding path paved with fear, drama, doubt and reflection. It will force us to look within ourselves, to flee, to rediscover who we are. It is my hope, dear reader, that we remain forever united by this experience and that we may journey together always.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very thought provoking July 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a voracious reader of stories that not only entertain me, but also that they left me thinking about life deeper matters. When I was told about `The Bleak Door' I decided to give it a try and in 2 entire nights, I found what I was looking for.
I have not a favorite character; I enjoyed all of them, because with each one I felt reflected in some aspect: the struggle, the perseverance, the nostalgia, the strength, the love, the constant pursuit.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has ventured into deep thought about our future as humans beings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Stop July 10, 2013
Format:Paperback
From the very beginning, you're immersed.
The fusion of real and surreal kept me glued to the page, and the complexity of character was very refreshing.
A gripping, thought-provoking foray into worlds known and unknown; all in all, a scifi thriller with elements of horror, love, and fundamental humanity.
Tread carefully, or it will pull you in!
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must June 29, 2013
By JR
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a thriller-lover and keen on Science Fiction so when I came across this book on Amazon blending both genres I decided to give it a try. I also liked how the writer introduced his book with a very personal, warm approach. And he does not let you down.

The book is chock-full with action. The author is obviously well-versed in contemporary history and very skillful at merging reality and fiction to such a point that the difference between both planes becomes very very blurry. The book already starts on fast-motion mode, but shortly afterwards gains incredibly further momentum and pulls you in and out of reality in a frantic way. The future is presented in a disquieting fashion, but taking into account how the world is evolving it rings a very real bell. If you like action, good construction of characters, a stylishly written story with a sustainable plot that keeps you on pins and needles up until the very hard-to-predict ending, this is a book you definitely shouldn't miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic dramatic thriller July 19, 2013
By Anna P
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the description on this book and found the premise to be compelling, so much so that I read the ‘Look Inside’ and didn’t think twice about buying the book.

The author expertly lays the ground for a classic thriller. He sets up all the elements for a rip roaring tale, and that is what it proves to be. Suspense neatly builds to action, and characters are very well drawn and create a real emotional connection with the reader. As the characters faced into each challenge, I was literally biting my nails, and to me that is the sign of a very good book. This appears to be the first book by this author, and it is a very strong debut. I will definitely read his future works. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging thriller sci fi July 17, 2013
By Rodrigo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Surprises abound here. 'The Bleak Door' is an action packed, tension filled story. Things are never quite as they are portrayed. The fictional events are so real you wonder how the main characters get so close to the terrifying truth.
A clever plot, interesting characters and a storyline that make me eager to know how it ended. The first half of the book moves rapidly, and as for the second half, all I can say is strap yourself in, particularly for the last 50 pages.
I really enjoyed the reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sci-fi writing May 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Christian Baker has talent to spare as this novel shows. The story grabs you from the beginning never lets up on the suspense. The premise follows along the lines of the Apocalypse with more reality and fantasy mixed together. Not to give away the crux but without the science fiction part this could be a warning to the future gone awry. Can't wait to read more from this author. I highly recommend this novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two VERY Big Thumbs UP! October 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was provided a free copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

The Bleak by Christian Baker: “What if one day you woke up in a world where everything you loved and knew no longer existed? A sinister destiny looms over our world, an invisible, deadly one.” There really is no way for me to sum up this book in a short description without giving away too much. In the end, it’s the human spirit that saves the day, or does it?

Christian Baker has written a tale that reaches to your core, and filled me with suspense as to what was to happen next. I just couldn’t put this book down. By far one of the better ebooks I’ve read in a long time. If you like books about science fiction or conspiracy theory this one really is for you. As I read this one I could see the movie playing out in my mind. This would be a good movie. Excellent work Christian Baker!
