Praise for Killfile: “Fast, fun, and frenetic. A whip-smart edge-of-your-seat thriller.” (Ernest Cline, author of Armada and Ready Player One)
“[A] flip, unusually compelling hero... Farnsworth, author of the fantastical Nathaniel Cade series (Red, White, and Blood, 2012, etc.), stands to expand his following with this clever, offbeat thriller.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“Christopher Farnsworth has written a blistering, provocative, and propulsive novel - reading KILLFILE is the equivalent of being strapped to the nosecone of a ballistic missile hurtling through the sky at 5,000 MPH. Which is to say, it’s one hell of a ride.” (Nick Cutter, author of THE TROOP and THE DEEP)
“Part James Bond, part Jason Bourne, part Professor X, only smarter, wittier, and can run faster. Adrenaline action at its mind-reading best. Christopher Farnsworth’s KILLFILE unleashes the greatest weapon ever: the human mind.” (Beau Smith, creator/writer of WYNONNA EARP)
“Like his protagonist, Chris Farnsworth is a mind reader: he knows how to keep me hooked until I reach the last page. KILLFILE is his best yet.” (Ian Tregillis, author of BITTER SEEDS and THE RISING)
“From the very first page of KILLFILE, I knew I was in the hands of a master storyteller. Christopher Farnsworth delivers his best thriller yet, and I can’t wait to read whatever he comes up with next.” (Boyd Morrison, author of THE ARK and THE EMPEROR'S REVENGE (with Clive Cussler))
“. . . Mixing a deliciously readable hybrid of “man on the run” adventure with technothriller elements and a protagonist with a powerful telepathic talent that doesn’t hesitate to kick him in the balls on occasion, Killfile is, in the final analysis, bloody good fun.” (Jonathan Howard, author of JOHANNES CABAL THE NECROMANCER)
From the Back Cover
John Smith has a special gift that seems more like a curse: he can access other people’s thoughts. He hears the songs stuck in their heads, knows their most private traumas and fears, and relives the painful memories they can’t let go of. The CIA honed his skills until he was one of their most powerful operatives, but John fled the Agency and now works as a private consultant, trying to keep the dark potentials of his gift in check—and himself out of trouble.
Unfortunately, John is unexpectedly plunged into dangerous waters when his latest client, billionaire software genius Everett Sloan, hires him to investigate a former employee—a tech whiz kid named Eli Preston—and search his thoughts for some very valuable intellectual property he’s stolen. Before John can probe Preston’s mind, however, his identity is compromised and he’s on the run for his life, with Sloan’s young associate, Kelsey.Hunted by shadowy enemies with extensive resources and unknown motives, John and Kelsey must go off the grid. John knows their only hope for survival is his powers, and he’ll have to use them to their fullest—even if it means putting his own sanity at risk.

There's a real cinematic feel to the story -I could easily visualize the whole thing -and it moves at a good pace, but it doesn't sacrifice character moments. John Smith is no knight on a white horse; he's conflicted and troubled enough to be interesting, but still a good person at his core. I found the descriptions of how he used his telepathic abilities absolutely fascinating. Farnsworth has come up with some really novel ideas about mental abilities that I haven't read about before or seen in TV/movies. Despite Smith's abilities, he has troubles when going up against the juggernaut that is our massive data system and it's sort of a modern 'John Henry' battle in some ways.
I've read a lot of books so far this year but I have to say this may be the one I have enjoyed the most so far! Just a terrific thriller.
Then I read The Eternal World which also knocked me out. (Check them out as they don't disappoint.
Now comes Killfile.
This one was his best yet.
The hero??? John Smith is one of the best characters to come along in a long time. He's an ex CIA who who is psychic and he can really get into your head.
The book is a roller coaster ride with a lot of double crosses and plot twists.
You really never know who to trust not even the main character which is what makes this read more fun.
So check this book out it is more fun than any mind game you can play.
