Deep Past is an extraordinary novel on so many levels. It is a gripping thriller in terms of pacing, vivid characters, and exotic settings, a book you won't be able to put down. It is also one of those rare novels that bends (if not blows) the mind with deep and compelling ideas about consciousness, intelligence, and our place in the world. The very real and accurate science in this novel will give you the intellectual shivers and stay in your thoughts long after the book is finished.-- "Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author"
An excellent thriller with real meat on the bones...makes you think as well as sweat.-- "Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author "
A fascinating thriller...Linden does a masterly job of integrating intriguing speculative science into a page-turning plot.-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
