Description

THE MOST CHILLING AND UNPREDICTABLE THRILLER OF THE YEAR. Jack Sparks died while writing this book. It was no secret that journalist Jack Sparks had been researching the occult for his new book. No stranger to controversy, he'd already triggered a furious Twitter storm by mocking an exorcism he witnessed. Then there was that video: forty seconds of chilling footage that Jack repeatedly claimed was not of his making, yet was posted from his own YouTube account. Nobody knew what happened to Jack in the days that followed - until now. 'Wow. Seriously hard to put down...Chilling and utterly immersive' - M. R. Carey, author of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS 'This is The Omen for the social media age' - Chris Brookmyre, author of the Jack Parlabane thrillers 'Wittier than the lovechild of Stephen Fry and Charlie Brooker, scarier than watching The Exorcist in an abandoned asylum' - Sarah Lotz, author of The Three DISCOVER THE LAST DAYS OF JACK SPARKS - DESTINED TO BE 2016'S MOST TALKED-ABOUT THRILLER

Review quote

Wow. Seriously hard to put down ... Chilling and utterly immersive M. R. Carey, author of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS This is The Omen for the social media age Chris Brookmyre, author of the Jack Parlabane thrillers Super spooky and addictively written HEAT We fell hard for Jason Arnopp's whip-smart and impulsive thriller ... meet your new favourite book iBooks Store Wittier than the lovechild of Stephen Fry and Charlie Brooker; scarier than watching The Exorcist in an abandoned asylum. Fast, furious, original and most importantly, terrifying Sarah Lotz, author of THE THREE Tremendous ... a cracking read Andy Nyman, co-creator of GHOST STORIES and Derren Brown's award-winning shows This is one of those books where I'm sad when I'm not reading it. It manages the rare feat of being both horrific and hilarious, which makes me insanely jealous of Arnopp and has me considering how to kill him and consume his mighty power Chuck Wendig, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author An absolutely great read. It scared the bejeezus out of me! David Schneider, comedian, director and actor in I'M ALAN PARTRIDGE and THE DAY TODAY Cracking fun and genuinely creepy Rick O'Shea, radio presenter If you enjoy smart supernatural thrillers then read this book ... I smashed through it in a couple of days Daniel P. Carter, BBC Radio 1 DJ I always suspected Jason Arnopp was a genius, and now, having read his first novel, I know I was right. Jack Sparks is an extraordinary literary creation, clever and awful, loveable and cruel and his story is so terrifying and believable that I could barely bring myself to turn off my lights at bedtime Lisa Jewell, international bestselling author Original, clever, scary and funny...It kept me gripped and guessing from page one Rebecca Levene, author of The Hollow Gods series A breath of fresh air, vivid and essential John Higgs, author of STRANGER THAN WE CAN IMAGINE Brilliantly unnerving. I couldn't put it down Tiernan Douieb, comedian Quite brilliant. An assured, ultra-modern occult story with real depth of character, a compelling and satisfyingly twisted narrative and a streak of genuine malevolence Andrew O'Neill, comedian, presenter and musician Arnopp's snappy prose and bizarre plot carry the day. An uneasy suspense shrouds the pages like a murky London fog. Devour it in one sitting The Australian Way The Last Days of Jack Sparks is whip-smart and perhaps, the greatest indictment of social media or endorsement of it ... It is that kind of wonderful book that plays with your perception and is the very last word in gonzo journalism. If Hunter S. Thompson decided to write a novel channelling Aleister Crowley and with the wit of Augustus Burroughs, you would have the essence of this terrific novel Ken Bruen, author of the Jack Taylor crime series Funny, creepy, and totally nuts. I had a blast reading it Paul Tremblay, author of A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS
