Consider my single mind blown! An astonishing and original concept, deftly executed. This novel cries out for a screen adaptation -- David Jackson, bestselling author of Cry Baby A whip-smart, searing debut with a story which grinds into the mind like cursed clockwork. I really loved it -- Matt Wesolowski, author of Six Stories A brilliantly inventive, pacy debut with a great premise. A Maze Runner type world of complex death games and riddles that keep you guessing to the very end. If you liked The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, you'll love this -- Eve Smith, author of The Waiting Rooms I loved Five Minds - the worldbuilding of Gibson with the pace of The Running Man. A fantastic ride and a brilliant debut! -- Tim Glister, author of Red Corona After a few pages I was hooked into a new world, manned by workers, andis, hedonists and communes. Imagine an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, The Hunger Games, Sophie's Choice and a whodunit under one cover. I loved it and wouldn't be surprised if it gets optioned for a movie -- Jenny O'Brien, author of <i>Fallen Angel</i> Inventive, innovative and imaginative. Five Minds was a trip that had me thrilled and terrified in equal measure. Utterly mind-bending -- J.M. Hewitt, author of <i>The Night Caller</i>
