J. Kent Messum’s Thriller HUSK To Publish in UK on 30th July 2015


Penguin Random House are set to release thriller HUSK in paperback format on 30th July 2015.

Tightly plotted and brilliantly imagined, Husk is the second novel from the award-winning author of Bait,  J. Kent Messum.

For a lucky few, death is merely an inconvenience. With the help of technology the mind can survive after a body has been laid to rest. This afterlife, however, is far from paradise.

Rhodes is a ‘Husk’. It’s an illegal and highly lucrative job – renting out control of his body and mind to the highest bidder. It’s a sure way to a better life, but some clients go too far. Then the visions start – terrible sights that haunt his waking hours. They could be dreams, or they could be something far worse – they might just be memories.

J. Kent Messum is a British Canadian writer living in Toronto. His first novel, Bait, won the 2014 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Crime Novel for excellence in Canadian crime writing.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
