Jason Arnopp – author of acclaimed cult hit The Last Days of Jack Sparks – returns with a razor-sharp thriller for a social-media obsessed world. Prepare to never look at your phone the same way again . . .

Kate Collins has been ghosted.

She was supposed to be moving in with her new boyfriend Scott, but all she finds after relocating to Brighton is an empty apartment. Scott has vanished. His possessions have all disappeared.

Except for his mobile phone.

Kate knows she shouldn’t hack into Scott’s phone. She shouldn’t look at his Tinder, his calls, his social media. But she can’t quite help herself.

That’s when the trouble starts. Strange, whispering phone calls from numbers she doesn’t recognize. Scratch marks on the walls that she can’t explain. And the growing feeling that she’s being watched.

Kate refuses to leave the apartment – she’s not going anywhere until she’s discovered what happened to Scott. But the deeper she dives into Scott’s digital history the more Kate realizes just how little she really knows about the man she loves.

Reader Reviews

Praise

"Takes a frenetic and self-obsessed modern world in its confident stride ... gives us ingenious and funny diabolism, repurposed for the 21st Century. A magnificent millennial nightmare."
Alan Moore, creator of Watchmen and V for Vendetta on The Last Days of Jack Sparks
"Wow. Seriously hard to put down ... Chilling and utterly immersive."
M. R. Carey, author of The Girl With All the Gifts on The Last Days of Jack Sparks
"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 on The Last Days of Jack Sparks
"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 on The Last Days of Jack Sparks
"Funny, creepy and totally nuts."
Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts on The Last Days of Jack Sparks
"This is The Omen for the social media age."
Chris Brookmyre, author of the Jack Parlabane thrillers on The Last Days of Jack Sparks
"Original, clever, scary and funny ... It kept me gripped and guessing from page one."
Rebecca Levene, author of The Hollow Gods series on The Last Days of Jack Sparks
"A breath of fresh air, vivid and essential."
John Higgs, author of Stranger Than We Can Imagine on The Last Days of Jack Sparks
"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, lovable 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 on The Last Days of Jack Sparks
"Tremendous ... a cracking read."
Andy Nyman, co-creator of Ghost Stories and Derren Brown's award-winning shoes on The Last Days of Jack Sparks
"Cracking fun and genuinely creepy."
Rick O'Shea, radio presenter on The Last Days of Jack Sparks
"A darkly comic, genuinely unnerving, incredibly well-executed horror novel."
