A novel by

 
 
Overlook continues its reissues of the incomparable Jim Nisbet's oeuvre with Dark Companion. Nisbet, the acclaimed noir writer from San Francisco captures the absurdities of present-day America with a rare pungency in this noir gem.

Banerjhee Rolf, a bright, levelheaded Indian-American scientist, is content to spend his days with his wife, tending his garden and studying his beloved astronomy. When Rolf 's relationship with his seedy, drug-dealing neighbor, Toby Pride, and Pride's stoner girlfriend takes a weird turn, Rolf's placid world is shattered and he becomes a fugitive from justice. Crime, cosmology, politics, philosophy, physics and more enter into this cautionary tale, which climaxes with the suddenness of a cobra strike and then delivers a denouement that's both stunning and absolutely perfect.
