Imagine a drug that makes your brain function in a fantastically efficient way, tapping in to your fundamental resources of intelligence and drive. Imagine a drug that could make you read and remember entire books in a matter of hours, or learn a foreign language in a day. Imagine a drug that could make you process information so fast you can see the patterns on the stock market. Eddie Spinola is on such a drug. It's a pill called MDT-48. It's a Viagra for the brain, a designer drug that's redesigning his life. Eddie's not the only one doing MDT, but with his dealer shot dead and Eddie escaping with a large stash, he's the only one with a supply. And while the drug is helping Eddie make the sort of money he's only dreamed about, he's also beginning to suffer its side-effects ... The Dark Fields is a high-concept, highly original thriller, a pharmaceutical Faust that is page-turning and thought-provoking in equal measure.

Alan Glynn's THE DARK FIELDS is that rare thing - a first novel of such great stylistic assurance and narrative energy that you immediately realize you're in the hands of a born storyteller. More tellingly, this dark, corrosive story of designer pharmaceuticals and high finance is a trenchant morality tale for our manic, avaricious times. This is a wild, compulsive ride into the greedy vortex of modern life. It is also an astonishing debut ( Douglas Kennedy)
This is fast, clever- and horrifying, in a cheerful sort of way. ( DAILY TELEGRAPH)
Glynn understands the thriller format and drives the plot relentlessly forward with verve and panache...A finely written debut, new in paperback, by an Irish writer who will only get stronger. ( EVENING HERALD)
* A terrific thriller about a wonder lifestyle drug and its irresistible effects. Compelling and thought-provoking THE DARK FIELDS is a brilliant debut.
