Synopsis

**LONGLISTED for the CWA John Creasey NEW BLOOD Dagger**

**LoveReading BOOK of the MONTH**



'Gloriously funny but dark as hell, you will laugh and recoil in equal measure' Sunday Express



'By turns comic and shocking, an extraordinary debut from a striking new voice' Michael Marshall Smith



'Complex, inventive and a genuine shocker, this is the very opposite of a comfort read' Guardian



____________________



Jerry has a traumatic past that leaves him subject to psychotic hallucinations and depressive episodes. When he stands accused of stealing a priceless Van Gogh painting, he goes underground, where he develops an unwilling relationship with a woman who believes that the voices she hears are from God.



Involuntarily entangled in the illicit world of sex-trafficking amongst the Hollywood elite, and on a mission to find redemption for a haunting series of events from the past, Jerry is thrust into a genuinely shocking and outrageously funny quest to uncover the truth and atone for historical sins.



A complex, page-turning psychological thriller, riddled with twists and turns, Epiphany Jones is also a superb dark comedy with a powerful emotional core. You'll laugh when you know you shouldn't, be moved when you least expect it and, most importantly, never look at Hollywood, celebrity or sex in the same way again. This is an extraordinary debut from a fresh, exceptional new talent.

'One of the 25 Most Irresistible Hollywood Novels' Entertainment Weekly



'Engrossing ... a captivating story that manages to be funny, sinister and surprising' New York Daily News



'A thrilling and highly original debut that cuts to the dark heart of celebrity and pornography. Michael Grothaus is one to watch' Eva Dolan



'Startling, inventive, funny and disturbing, compelling and oddly beautiful - Epiphany Jones is a novel that marks the arrival of a truly talented writer' Kevin Wignall



'A scabrously funny and thrillingly original book about atoning for past sins and indiscretions' David F. Ross



'The emotional range is astounding - Grothaus is an exceptional talent' J M Hewitt



'A truly impressive debut by a London-based American journalist who has investigated both Hollywood and the sex trade and uses his research to best effect in a twisting tale at the same time realistically gripping and sardonic ... Grothaus writes with a delicate fluency that contrasts with the depravity of his subject matter. Humour and emotions: what more could you ask for in a thriller?' Maxim Jakubowski, LoveReading



'A real seat-of-the-pants read, and utterly uncompromising. It's graphic, visceral, mordantly funny, thought-provoking and at times profoundly moving. It's not for all, but it was certainly all for this one. I absolutely loved it' Raven Crime Reads
