Product description


"Golden State is a gripping and brainy page-turner. . . . Winters is especially good at keeping his readers off-balance. Not even his biggest fans will see some of the twists and turns he's built into this, his best book yet."--Library Journal, starred review

"Golden State is a prescient, devastating commentary on humanity's disintegrating attachment to reality and truth, expertly told through the prism of a police-procedural, dystopian nightmare. Winters has written a 1984 for the 21st century. Not just a thrilling book, but an important one."--Blake Crouch, author of Dark Matter

"'Golden State' is science fiction at its finest, a propulsive narrative filled with complex ideas that are expressed by engaging characters who occupy a rich and detailed world."--The Maine Edge

"an ambitious and frighteningly timely novel."--The Nerd Daily

"A perfectly poised ontological-thriller-comedy-dystopian-allegorical-page-turner, yet with tenderly real characters in its chewy center, this turned out to be just the thing I was looking for."--Jonathan Lethem

"A skillful and swift-moving concoction . . . For those who like their dystopias with a dash of humor. No lie."--Kirkus

"An entertaining new take on the venerable genre-blending of noir and science fiction."--The Los Angeles Review of Books

"An entertaining, unpredictable read."--Financial Times

"Another fine novel from a writer whose imagination knows no bounds."--Booklist

"At a time in the real world when everybody seems to own their version of the truth and phrases like "alternative facts" are used to cover falsehoods, Golden State is, no lie, a fascinating examination that takes fidelity and correctness down a freaky Orwellian path."--USA Today --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
