Editorial Reviews

Review

If Stephen Hawking and Stephen King wrote a novel together, you'd get The Flicker Men. Brilliant, disturbing, and beautifully told.

-- "Hugh Howey, New York Times bestselling author"

A high-speed thriller...The pages turn rapidly with well-orchestrated suspense.

-- "New York Times"

An original, smart physics thriller...Kosmatka writes with great skill and...sells his concepts so well that it's hard to pinpoint where the real science ends...A fun, exciting read.

-- "Missourian"

Kosmatka has taken a complex scientific paradox and turned it into a rapid race against time.

-- "Shelf Awareness"

So intriguing that I was able to enjoy the book even though I personally didn't understand all the aspects of the experiment...The story walked a fine line between science and science-fiction, and should please fans of both.

-- "Mystery Scene Magazine"

The most interesting science thriller I've read this year...The Flicker Men twists the weird implications of the [double-slit] experiment into a narrative that is both surprising and philosophically rich...A five-star read.

-- "Science Thrillers"

Kosmatka effectively harnesses his impressive imagination in the service of a mind-blowing plot in this outstanding SF thriller...Ingenious plot twists, well-realized characters, and superior prose elevate this above similar books.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Brilliant...This well-written and fast-paced scientific thriller builds into beautiful and suspenseful crescendo.

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

A first-rate thriller.

-- "Booklist"

Kosmatka's novel delivers a number of thrills, along with believable science and ominous themes.

-- "Kirkus Reviews" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
