Waterstones Says

Splicing together crime thriller and science fiction adventure, the author of Dark Matter crafts a chilling depiction of genome hacking and a fiendish plot that threatens to transform all of humanity - unless one man can stop it.

'You are the next step in human evolution...'

At first, Logan Ramsay isn't sure if anything's different. He just feels a little sharper. Better able to concentrate. Better at multitasking. Reading a bit faster, memorizing better, needing less sleep. But before long, he can't deny it: something's happening to his brain. To his body. He's starting to see the world, and those around him, even those he loves most, in whole new ways.

The truth is, Logan's genome has been hacked. And there's a reason he's been targeted for this upgrade. A reason that goes back decades to the darkest part of his past, and a horrific family legacy. Worse still, what's happening to him is just the first step in a much larger plan, one to inflict the same changes on humanity at large, and at a terrifying cost. Because of what Logan's becoming, he's the one person in the world capable of stopping what's been set in motion. But to have a chance at winning this war, he'll have to become something other than himself. And even as he's fighting, he can't help wondering: what if humanity's only hope for a future really does lie in engineering our own evolution...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Imaginative, perfectly paced, and extremely clever. Upgrade walks the fine line between page-turning thriller and smart sci-fi. Another killer read from Blake - Andy Weir, author of The Martian

From the first page of Upgrade, it’s clear you’re in the hands of a master storyteller; Blake Crouch leads you on a rollercoaster ride in this highly original science-fiction adventure thriller, by turns mysterious, fascinating and deeply moving – exploring the very nature of what it means to be human. Spellbinding - Alex Michaelides, No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Patient and The Maidens

Amazingly gripping and totally immersive. Brilliant (near-future) world-building and impeccable plot. You don’t so much sympathize with the main character as live inside his skin - Diana Gabaldon, No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of the Outlander series

Blake Crouch doesn’t pull any punches in this taut and evocative examination of what humanity really is – and how it fails us. Upgrade is a hugely entertaining and emotionally resonant thriller that you’ll be thinking about long after you turn the last page - Veronica Roth, No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of Chosen Ones and Divergent

Blake Crouch has invented his own brand of page-turner – fearlessly genre-bending, consistently surprising, and determined to explode the boundaries of what a thriller can be - Karin Slaughter, author of After That Night

[A] fantastic, mind-blowing philosophical thriller - Yahoo News

Blake Crouch is brilliant. His innovative novels never fail to grip! - Sarah Pekkanen, bestselling co-author of The Wife Between Us
