'CHILLING AND UTTERLY IMMERSIVE' M. R. Carey
It was no secret that journalist Jack Sparks had been researching the occult for his new book. No stranger to controversy, he'd already triggered a furious Twitter storm by mocking an exorcism he witnessed.
Then there was that video: forty seconds of chilling footage that Jack repeatedly claimed was not of his making, yet was posted from his own YouTube account.
Nobody knew what happened to Jack in the days that followed - until now.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We fell hard for Jason Arnopp’s whip-smart and impulsive thriller. Jack Sparks is a narcissistic, mildly despicable journalist—and this novel is an account of his last days. Sparks is dying under mysterious circumstances while researching the occult and trying to debunk supernatural phenomena. Arnopp creatively pieces together the truth behind his antihero’s shocking demise, switching deftly between Sparks’ own manuscripts and social media plus insights from his skeptical brother. Peppered with demons, exorcisms, time travel and a whole lot of blood, The Last Days of Jack Sparks rewards us with an unsettling, fantastical conclusion. Fans of breathless horror: meet your new favourite book.
Keeping The Lights On. Permanently.
Well this is easily the best book I have read in a decade. Scary, brilliant, twisty-turny fiction that meant I haven't spoken to my family in two days as I read it. The book is genuinely unnerving and very well written. 5 stars, well deserved.
Tried to stick with it as once I start a book, I like to finish. This was the most horribly disappointing book I’ve stuck with for a long time.
Dreadful first person narrative. Glib, slick, formulaic boring trash.
Really good read, highly recommend. I couldn't put this book down! A really good ending with a twist too, you won't be disappointed.
