Imagine a drug that makes your brain function in a fantastically efficient way, tapping in to your fundamental resources of intelligence and drive. Imagine a drug that could make you read and remember entire books in a matter of hours, or learn a foreign language in a day. Imagine a drug that could make you process information so fast you can see the patterns on the stock market. Eddie Spinola is on such a drug. It’s a pill called MDT-48. It’s a Viagra for the brain, a designer drug that’s redesigning his life. Eddie’s not the only one doing MDT, but with his dealer shot dead and Eddie escaping with a large stash, he’s the only one with a supply. And while the drug is helping Eddie make the sort of money he’s only dreamed about, he’s also beginning to suffer its side-effects. The Dark Fields is a high-concept, highly original thriller, a pharmaceutical Faust that is page-turning and thought-provoking in equal measure.
