Description
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - From the bestselling author of Dark Matter and the Wayward Pines trilogy comes a relentless thriller about time, identity, and memory--his most mind-boggling, irresistible work to date, and the inspiration for Shondaland's upcoming Netflix film.

"Gloriously twisting . . . a heady campfire tale of a novel."-- The New York Times Book Review

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY TIME

Reality is broken.

At first, it looks like a disease. An epidemic that spreads through no known means, driving its victims mad with memories of a life they never lived. But the force that's sweeping the world is no pathogen. It's just the first shock wave, unleashed by a stunning discovery--and what's in jeopardy is not our minds but the very fabric of time itself.

In New York City, Detective Barry Sutton is closing in on the truth--and in a remote laboratory, neuroscientist Helena Smith is unaware that she alone holds the key to this mystery . . . and the tools for fighting back.

Together, Barry and Helena will have to confront their enemy--before they, and the world, are trapped in a loop of ever-growing chaos. Praise for Recursion

"An action-packed, brilliantly unique ride that had me up late and shirking responsibilities until I had devoured the last page . . . a fantastic read." --Andy Weir, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Martian

"Another profound science-fiction thriller. Crouch masterfully blends science and intrigue into the experience of what it means to be deeply human." -- Newsweek

"Definitely not one to forget when you're packing for vacation . . . Crouch] breathes fresh life into matters with a mix of heart, intelligence, and philosophical musings." -- Entertainment Weekly

"A trippy journey down memory lane . . . Crouch's] intelligence is an able match for the challenge he's set of overcoming the structure of time itself." -- Time

"Wildly entertaining . . . another winning novel from an author at the top of his game." -- AV Club
