RECEPTOR by Alan Glynn

Sixty years apart, two men try to uncover the truth behind an astonishing cognitive enhancement drug called MDT-48. Read full book review >
PARADIME by Alan Glynn
Released: Aug. 2, 2016

"The plot keeps moving with plenty of effective surprises, and the final chapters successfully navigate to an even darker tone. So the not-quite-resolved ending seems perfectly appropriate, even if you have to read it over to make sense of it."
The plot twists can get a little confusing in the latest high-tech sci-fi thriller from Glynn (The Dark Fields, 2001, etc.). But at least readers will never be quite as confused as Danny Lynch, the story's unlucky not-quite hero. Read full book review >
GRAVELAND by Alan Glynn
Released: May 28, 2013

"Glynn couldn't hit all his marks without a brisk, no-nonsense style that keeps the pot boiling vigorously till the midpoint, when the pressure abruptly drops till the whole sad carnival comes down at the end with an oddly muted crash."
Glynn (Bloodland, 2012, etc.) peers once more beneath the surface of the Big Apple's financial sector and finds enough vermin to keep an army of exterminators busy. Read full book review >
BLOODLAND by Alan Glynn
Released: Feb. 1, 2012

"His prose spare but spirited, Glynn (Winterland, 2011, etc.) spins an all-too-likely tale of secrets, lies and power corrupted. Chilling."
A plot-twisting, page-turning humdinger in which collateral damage gets a murderous spin. Read full book review >
Released: Jan. 1, 2001

"Undeniably clever, and hip enough to garner a cult following, but not much is left once the bells and whistles are stripped away."
A high-finance thriller about a wonder street-drug that turns people into supercomputers, this debut from Dublin-based Glynn glitters with a carnival of effects but lacks thrust enough to stay in orbit. Read full book review >
