Editorial Reviews Review

An Amazon Best Book of July 2017: After you read dozens upon dozens of thrillers, sometimes their twists and turns become more like predictable wiggles. Not so in Afterlife. Toward the beginning, there were a handful of moments where I thought, “I can see where this is going….” I was wrong every single time, and I finally wised up and just settled in for the ride. FBI agent Will Brody and Assistant Special Agent in Charge Claire McCoy have a panicked Chicago on their hands when a serial sniper takes down his seventeenth victim outside a high-end grocery store. But it’s not until the killer lays a cunning trap for the agents tracking him that Brody and McCoy realize that they are facing someone—or something—that has never been seen before by the FBI’s behavioral specialists. A ghost story, a love story, a whole lot of action, and a true-blue indictment on the corrosiveness of evil form the flexible backbone of this whip-smart thriller that corkscrews like a bronco. --Adrian Liang, The Amazon Book Review


“Edgar finalist Sakey follows his Brilliance Trilogy with a remarkably conceived and passionately realized supernatural thriller.…Balancing lyric romance and altruistic self-sacrifice with horrifying scenes and wrenching violence, Sakey comes up with a fascinating answer to the eternal question of why humans exist.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Sakey follows up his incredible Brilliance Trilogy with an otherworldly stand-alone thriller about a subterranean war between gods and monsters...employ[ing] all his storytelling gifts to craft a noodle-bender of the first order. A love story enmeshed in a twisty thriller that peels back the universe to see what lies beneath.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

AFTERLIFE is simultaneously a beautiful love story, a grim tale of apocalyptic conflict, and an opportunity for an insightful writer to ruminate on the eternal verities. Great appeal across genres.” Booklist (starred review)

“Sakey has crafted an original and unpredictable tale that puts a different spin on the battle between good and evil.” —Associated Press

“Sakey has crafted a compulsive thriller.…His world-building is pretty epic, and the community of characters…reminded me of Stephen King’s The Stand. It’s amazing what a skillful writer with ‘a sense of theater’ and a brilliant imagination can do.” The Minneapolis Star Tribune

AFTERLIFE drags the reader along at a breathless pace.…Excellent, addictive, and eminently re-readable fiction.” —RT Book Reviews (Five Star Gold review)

“Imagine the love story in the film Ghost dropped into The Matrix. Astonishing.” —Don Winslow

“Truly incredible. An epic, original vision. My brain is still bent.” —Blake Crouch


“Ridiculously good…Sakey is the master of the mindful page turner.” —Gillian Flynn

“One of our best storytellers.” —Michael Connelly

“It’s depth and intelligence and passion and emotion that set Sakey apart.” —Lee Child
