Editorial Reviews

Review

Alan Glynn's THE DARK FIELDS is that rare thing - a first novel of such great stylistic assurance and narrative energy that you immediately realize you're in the hands of a born storyteller. More tellingly, this dark, corrosive story of designer pharmaceuticals and high finance is a trenchant morality tale for our manic, avaricious times. This is a wild, compulsive ride into the greedy vortex of modern life. It is also an astonishing debut Douglas Kennedy This is fast, clever- and horrifying, in a cheerful sort of way. DAILY TELEGRAPH Glynn understands the thriller format and drives the plot relentlessly forward with verve and panache...A finely written debut, new in paperback, by an Irish writer who will only get stronger. EVENING HERALD

Format: Paperback
A chance encounter with his ex-brother in law will change Eddie Spinola's life forever.

From hack writer to stockmarket wizard, he's riding high and loving it, all thanks to a tiny pill.

Now, if only he could get Gennady, the Russian mobster off his back, but as it turns out that's the least of his problems.

MDT-48 is like viagra for the brain, supercharging Eddie's intellectual abilities. There's only one problem, he's discovered - it's going to kill him.

The Dark Fields is a tightly written novel, lavish in detail and background knowedge. The book, like the drug, will leave you craving more.

"The Dark Fields" takes its time to flesh out the main character but it's not a bad thing. You're with him for the ride and it allows you to attempt to draw certain parallels with yourself. Expect some splits from the movie if you're coming into this with that in mind, as the book ends far away from the film. Overall I couldn't put this one down. I even found myself reading it at inappropriate times because I had to know how it ended!

I was so happy to find this book with the original title. Almost all current productions of the book are with the movie title "Limitless" so finding "The Dark Fields" made it a very special gift for my husband.

I don't know if there is a mistake with the listing, but it said the paperback version of this book is over $100...that is ridiculous! the story was good, but not that good.

WAY TO OVERPRICED
