Spark: New Novel by John Twelve Hawks

The latest novel by John Twelve Hawks is Spark, which is a thriller.  It’s about a man — Jacob — who has Cotard’s Syndrome, i.e., he thinks he’s dead.  This belief makes Jacob the perfect assassin.  He works for BDG, a global bank that is so powerful and so wealthy that it does as it pleases.  In other words, BDG is immoral and evil.  While hunting Emily, a young woman who threatens to expose the evil machinations of BDG, Jacob slowly begins to realize he is not a walking dead man.  He is, in fact, a human being capable of a wide-range of emotions. 

Spark is highly recommended.  And according to news reports, it has already been picked up by DreamWorks.  Perhaps it will make it to the silver screen.
