Dark Matter meets Annihilation in this mind-bending and emotional speculative thriller set in a world where the exact moment of your death can be predicted—for a price. Our narrator is the most talented salesperson at Dare to Know, an enigmatic company that has developed the technology to predict anyone’s death down to the second. Divorced, estranged from his sons, and broke, he’s driven to violate the cardinal rule of the business by forecasting his own death day. The problem: his prediction says he died 23 minutes ago. The only person who can confirm its accuracy is Julia, the woman he loved and lost during his rise up the ranks of Dare to Know. As he travels across the country to see her, he’s forced to confront his past, the choices he’s made, and the terrifying truth about the company he works for.

Accused of witchcraft, Ella Louise and her daughter Jessica are burned at the stake. Their story will take the shape of an urban legend as it’s told around a campfire by a man forever marked by his boyhood encounters with Jessica.

Amber’s best chance to break the cycle of horror comes when a true-crime investigator tracks her down to interview her for his popular podcast. But will this final act of storytelling redeem her—or will it bring the story full circle, ready to be told once again? And again. And again . . .

After starring in a hit TV comedy show and a string of blockbuster movies, Dustin Walker was one of the biggest names in Hollywood—until one day he just walked away from everything. A decade later, he invites ten different comedians to his private island retreat for a weekend of comic brainstorming. There’s Billy the Contractor, a “blue collar” comic who performs with a Glock holstered on his waist “because the 2nd amendment says I can!” There’s Janet Kahn, the aging Las Vegas icon famous for her nasty insults. There’s even Orange Baby Man, the most-loathed prop comic in America. But within hours of arriving on a seemingly deserted Pacific island, these comics learn there is more to Dustin’s offer than meets the eye—and soon the murders begin. An uproarious homage to Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, Ten Dead Comedians embraces all the classic conventions of the Golden Age of Mystery—with a thoroughly contemporary cast of characters!
