“The Gone World has already created quite a stir…. The book probes questions about consciousness and crime that call to mind, among others, True Detective and 12 Monkeys.”—EW.com
“I simply loved The Gone World. Set against a murder investigation spanning multiple realties, this is big-idea fiction that defies genre in the best possible way. Epic and mind-bending in scope, it carries the reader through on beautifully rendered, human moments.”—Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author
“A fascinating blend that doesn’t skimp on the criminal investigation or the [sci fi]…Describing much more than [the] simple setup would rob the reader of the trippy experience of navigating the time-travel intricacies of this nail-biting speculative thriller.”—Library Journal (starred review)
“At once futuristic, nightmarish and hard-boiled. Once again Tom Sweterlitsch takes readers to another world and back again. Take the trip.”—Stewart O’Nan
