A mindbending, relentlessly surprising thriller from the author of the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy. "Are you happy with your life?" Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious. Before he awakens to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits. Before a man Jason's never met smiles down at him and says, "Welcome back, my friend." In this world he's woken up to, Jason's life is not the one he knows. His wife is not his wife. His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor, but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable. Something impossible. Is it this world or the other that's the dream? And even if the home he remembers is real, how can Jason possibly make it back to the family he loves? The answers lie in a journey more wondrous and horrifying than anything he could've imagined-one that will force him to confront the darkest parts of himself even as he battles a terrifying, seemingly unbeatable foe. Dark Matter is a brilliantly plotted tale that is at once sweeping and intimate, mind-bendingly strange and profoundly human-a relentlessly surprising science-fiction thriller about choices, paths not taken, and how far we'll go to claim the lives we dream of.

Professional reviews

"Jon Lindstrom narrates this mind-bending thriller in rich appealing tones. He finds a strong yet emotional voice for quantum physicist Jason Dessen, who finds himself on a hospital gurney, facing real life having woken up from a dream. Or is the dream his REAL life? And if so, how can he get back to his wife and son? This novel explores how the person we become is defined by the events we encounter. Lindstrom draws the listener into Jason's surreal experiences, adding verisimilitude and building the tension as Jason tries desperately to identify what's happening to him. Projecting Jason's pain and struggle, Lindstrom's voice becomes tremulous when Jason realizes he might lose everything that means anything to him--real or not.
