"A major new talent has hit the mystery thriller scene."
Scott Mariani

"I'm glad my life came to an end. That was when it really began."

In the near future, a horrific pandemic known as The Falling has decimated mankind, leaving just a few cities standing. In a desperate bid to prevent the extinction of our race, technology has given rise to an entirely new species: Holo Sapiens.

Those fortunate enough to be able to afford it can be resurrected after death as holographic projections immune to disease, hunger and time itself. But as the human survivors of The Falling make their last defiant attempt to find a cure before the last cities fall and political power is passed to the holosaps, the discovery of a "kill-switch" that could see Holo Sapiens consigned to history changes the world. As the prospect of war looms between the living and the "after-living", it is down to one woman to find the kill-switch before mankind and Holo Sapiens attempt to erase each other from existence...


Praise for Dean Crawford:

"The fossilized remains of a 7,000-year-old creature dug from the sands of the Negev Desert in Israel become the bones of contention in Dean Crawford's fast-paced debut thriller... The book neatly threads together a wild variety of plotlines." -Wall Street Journal

"... cleverly introduced premise... assured pacing and plotting... " - Publishers Weekly

"The action is frenetic, in the vein of Matthew Reilly's Scarecrow series. Crawford is an able storyteller who smoothly orchestrates the plot's twists and turns... " - Kirkus Reviews

"... brilliant high-concept, high-octane thriller... ." - The Guardian

"A fast-paced and entertaining yarn." - Melbourne Age

"Partly mythical read, part thriller this pacy tale is a page turner guaranteed to keep you up late." - The Sun

"Get the cameras rolling - Indiana Jones meets Alien. What a combination of mystery, suspense, and unspeakable horror. I loved it!" - R.L. Stine

"This is an amazingly good, intelligently told novel by an exciting new British author." - Eurocrime

"Earth-shattering intrigue, hyperdrive action and a desperate race to save humanity, cranked up to the max with scarily realistic science and apocalyptic religion thrown in for good measure . . . a major new talent has hit the mystery thriller scene!" - Scott Mariani
