Présentation de l'éditeur

D. M. Mitchell has been compared to Dean Koontz, Stephen King, Ruth Rendell, M. R. James, Linwood Barclay, Umberto Eco, the Bronte sisters, Charles Dickens and many others. His novel The Soul Fixer has been optioned for a Hollywood movie in conjunction with the famous director Dominic Sena (director of Gone in 60 Seconds, Swordfish etc). Discover for yourself why D. M. Mitchell is being regarded by some as one of the UK’s most original and exciting writers of psychological thrillers and supernatural fiction.

Armageddon Heights. Two men, two stories, one breathtaking conclusion.

The first man is Samuel Wade, an ex-soldier, on the run and blamed for the murder of his beloved wife and daughter. But he’s on the trail of the real murderer and is seeking revenge. He boards a coach bound for Edinburgh, hot on the heels of his one-time friend and army colleague John Travers – a man who was kidnapped and brutally tortured by insurgents. A man who blamed Wade for allowing it to happen. The man who killed his family.

What happens next is totally unexpected and bizarre. Trying to sleep during a storm, Wade wakes to discover that the coach and its ten remaining passengers is no longer headed to Edinburgh. Impossibly, it’s in the middle of a vast, unknown and hostile desert, abandoned by its driver.

Are they asleep, is it a dream? Are they all dead? So their nightmare begins.

The second man is Robert Napier, second-in-command at Lindegaard Software, a company run by the powerfully wealthy Dale Lindegaard. Dale took over the business when his brother Jeremy and niece Melissa were brutally gunned down by an activist group known as CSL. Jeremy died, and Melissa was reduced to a vegetative state, and all because of Lindegaard’s complete control of a controversial new drug called tremethelene, used by millions worldwide. CSL was duly crushed, their leaders now in jail. But CSL has come back from the dead with a new leader called Charlie Sharland, threatening Dale Lindegaard’s tremethelene monopoly all over again. Lindegaard is determined to stamp them out for good and urges Robert Napier to do whatever it takes to rid him of them. Even murder.

As Samuel Wade’s living nightmare in the desert grows ever more bizarre and terrifying, Robert Napier is forced to work with Dean Villiers, a cold, calculating and violently ambitious man. He is drawn ever deeper into the dark underbelly of a multi-billion dollar corporation, where violence and greed are the norm and nothing is as it first appears. Who is the mole known as Cobalt? Who and where is Charlie Sharland? Does he even exist? And what exactly is motivating the scheming Dean Villiers?

Both men are out for revenge. Wade because of his family’s murder, Napier because of what happened to the vegetative Melissa Lindegaard, his wife-to-be. Both men’s lives are irrevocably intertwined. Both their stories will come crashing together in the terrifying, surprising, jaw-dropping climax of D. M. Mitchell’s undeniably original and most imaginative thriller to date.

Dare you take a journey into nightmare?

To use the author's own words, "It all sounds like the plot of a naff science fiction B-movie, or something lifted straight out of a kid's comic book." The author couldn't keep his characters straight. In the Prologue Jeremy Lindegaard and his daughter, Melissa, were being chauffeured to the home of Dale Lindegaard (Jeremy's brother). Melissa was thinking how much she loved her "Uncle Jeremy." Oops. When they arrived at the gates of Dale's house, Jeremy and Melissa were shot; Jeremy was killed, and Melissa seriously wounded. Quote: "Roger Napier was lifting Dale Lindegaard's body from the car. . . ." Actually, Dale had just come out of the house and was running toward the car. Oops.

Passengers on a bus included Jack Benedict and Lauren Smith, who announced to the other travelers that they had just become engaged. After a few chapters, the author forgot, and started calling Lauren Jack's "wife." Oops.

Other mistakes include using wrong words ("that" instead of "than").

I used the dictionary to check on the meanings of some words/phrases that are probably idioms or colloquialisms used in England. One that comes to mind is "off-piste"; the way it was used had nothing to do with skiing.

I wouldn't recommend this book to anybody in the United States, but if you live in England (and are very gullible), you might enjoy it. I suspect that the 5-star reviews were written by his friends. At this posting, there were only 13 reviews in all.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Real Thriller 4 septembre 2014

This book is a science fiction thriller. I had no idea what the story was about when I started reading it but I became very involved in the story. It is mostly the story of two men and how their lives become connected but events take a very bizarre turn. For a while I was thoroughly confused but the story then began to make sense and it had a very unexpected turn and a great ending. I enjoy D.M. Mitchell as an author and have read most of his books. I put this one among the best. Definitely would recommend this book if you like thrillers.

I have to say I did like the book in the end, but at the beginning, it was like reading alternate chapters of two books...it wasn't until almost midway through that it begun to make sense. Yes, it was a thriller, but it was also sci-fi. I cant disclose what is going on because it would spoil the book for you....yes its worth a read, so if you like a mixture of believable sci-fi combined with a thriller, then you will enjoy it because it is well written.

I read extensively and I am always disappointed when the ending to the book is obvious when I am only half-way through it, as it then becomes a chore for me to find the incentive to finish the book since the outcome is known.
However, this book held my interest throughout. Though the plot flips between two story lines, I felt it was well written. It was only in the closing chapter that everything tied together ....
Masterfully done!!!
Kudos, Mr. Mitchell !!

I don't usually read thrillers but I really enjoyed this book! And just when you're thinking you know who has done what Mitchell twists the answer around again. I have to say I would have liked more closure on what happens with Napier, Melissa, and Sam Wade but definitely a book worth reading and recommending.
