Interesting and for me, very enjoyable SF/Thriller from the ever reliable Blake Crouch.

"'Are you happy in your life?'

Those are the last words Jason Dessen hears before the masked abductor knocks him unconscious.

Before he awakes to find himself strapped to a gurney, surrounded by strangers in hazmat suits.

Before the man he's never met smiles down at him and says, 'Welcome back.'

In this world he's woken up to, Jason's life is not the one he knows. His wife is not his wife. His son was never born. And Jason is not an ordinary college physics professor, but a celebrated genius who has achieved something remarkable. Something impossible.

Is it this world or the other that's the dream? And even if the home he remembers is real, how can Jason possibly make it back to the family he loves? The answers lie in a journey more wondrous and horrifying than anything he could've imagined - one that will force him to confront the darkest parts of himself even as he battles a terrifying, seemingly unbeatable foe.

From the author of the bestselling 'Wayward Pines' trilogy, Dark Matter is a brilliantly plotted tale that is at once sweeping and intimate, mind-bendingly strange and profoundly human - a relentlessly surprising thriller about choices, paths not taken, and how far we'll go to claim the lives we dream of.

Plus, just spotted it's whispersync ready, so you can add the audiobook for £2.99
Just bought, thanks OP!
Great little read for 98p. Heated.
And if you like being really scared, try Dark Matter: A Ghost Story by Michelle Paver. The only book I've ever read that made me not want to turn off the light...
The Wayward Pines trilogy is also available at 99p each. Can recommend as easy to read SF in the style of Twin Peaks. Don't bother if you've seen the TV show though.
I stopped reading this about halfway through. Whether I ever resume remains to be seen. It is not a bad book, but equally hardly the best SciFi I've ever read. I am puzzled as to why it is being promoted here? There are always dozens of discounted titles on Amazon and many have multiple reviews...
