No Hope for Gomez!

Graham Parke

Winner of the Forewords Book of the Year Awards, featured on Kirkus Best Indie List 2011, IBA and USA Book News Award nominee. 

It's the age-old tale: 

Boy meets girl. 
Boy stalks girl. 
Girl already has a stalker. 
Boy becomes her stalker-stalker. 

We've seen it all before, many times, but this time it's different. If only slightly. 

When Gomez Porter becomes a test subject in an experimental drug trial, he is asked to keep track of any strange experiences through a blog. What Gomez isn't ready for, is so many of his experiences suddenly seeming strange; the antiques dealer trying to buy his old tax papers, the phone-sex salesman who hounds him day and night, the super sexy research assistant who falls for him but is unable to express herself in terms outside the realm of science. 

But when one of the trial participants turns up dead and another goes missing, Gomez begins to fear for his life. No longer sure who he can trust and which of his experiences are real and which merely drug induced delusions, he decides to go underground and work out a devious plan. 

“A quick and unputdownable read that flies in the face of reason, and smashes against the wall of detective novels. It's a Coens Brothers' film formatted in book form.”


“Challenges the way we think about, and interact with, the world around us.”

Kirkus Discoveries

“Extremely witty and clever writing that contains keen insights into human nature.”

California Chronicle
