Publisher's Summary

Jack Sparks died while writing this book.

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: 40 seconds of chilling footage that Jack repeatedly claimed was not of his making, yet it was posted from his own YouTube account.

Nobody knew what happened to Jack in the days that followed - until now.

    Story
    "Scary and Satirical"

    Self-obsessed author Jack Sparks loves to write about himself. He’s a smug atheist, a social media junkie and a selfish jerk. He’s also dead, which I assure you, is not a spoiler.

    Jack narrates most of this story, which is part horror novel, part mystery and more than a little satire. He’s not what I'd call a reliable narrator. The novel is actually presented as a book within a book: “Jack Sparks on the Supernatural” is written by Jack himself but is framed with (and occasionally interrupted by) editorial content from his brother. The book we're listening to is from a manuscript Jack left behind.

    Jack sets out to experience and debunk the supernatural, beginning by attending an exorcism in Italy. The novel takes off from there and it will keep you guessing. It’s a satisfying read with an interesting ending and a few laughs and frights along the way.

    This is biting, sharply-written fiction with just the right amount of ambiguity. I found it refreshingly original and narrator Joe Jameson deftly handles both the character voices and the story.

    "So.Good!"

    It's worth sticking with it! The ending is well entangled in the story. Def recommend.

    Story
    "biting my fingertips down to the bone"

    Mr. Sparks isn't a very nice fella, but he isn't a horror of horrors either. In today's media-driven world, he made an awful sort of sense to me. I was able to set aside our differences and look for our commonalities. In other words, Jack is a nicely fleshed-out character. As the story moved on and the nasty, creepy bits started piling up like old bones, I found myself caught up with Jack and puzzling over what might happen to him.
