The Martian meets Children of Time in this futuristic exploration of what it means to be human in an infinite universe.

A teenage girl found floating in a 100-year-old escape pod orbiting Jupiter claims to have seen all of time and must convince her rescuers to hand over their ship in order to save humanity from a coming disaster.

“Set in our solar system’s backyard, he [Gareth] has taken the scientific and political concerns of today and projected them into a future setting that the Midnight Oil’s “Read About It” lyrics describe best: “The rich get richer, the poor get the picture. Highly recommended.” –David Angus, Amazon Reviewer

Gareth Worthington recently spent some time with The Big Thrill discussing his latest thriller, DARK DWELLER.

Which took shape first: plot, character, or setting?

The plot for sure. I’m obsessed with outer space–I love to look up at the stars and feel insignificant. The book idea was to explore our place as individuals and as a race in the infinite universe.
