"THE ANOMALY simmers... Intriguing [and] never predictable.... will appeal to fans of exploration and survival along with 'The X-Files' crowd."--Associated Press
"Fans of the paranormal thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child will relish this superior debut from screenwriter Rutger, who makes the fantastic seem less so by dint of his self-aware, flawed lead and his ability to inject gallows humor into tense situations. Rutger milks every ounce of suspense from his plot."--Publishers Weekly (starred, boxed review)
"Make no mistake: THE ANOMALY is the real deal."--Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child, #1 New York Times bestselling authors of the Pendergast series
"Mixing a brisk and engaging narrative with strongly developed characters, Rutger deftly depicts the claustrophobic depths explored by the endangered expedition. The Anomaly should appeal to fans of The X-Files or Fringe as well as anyone looking for an enjoyable tale."--Booklist
"Gripping, exciting, page-turning fun."--John Connolly, #1 internationally bestselling author
"THE ANOMALY crackles with claustrophobic tension that had me holding my breath. I couldn't sleep until I'd finished reading, and then I couldn't sleep just thinking about it. I loved it. Michael Rutger is here to stay."--Sarah Pinborough, New York Times bestselling author of BEHIND HER EYES
"THE ANOMALY is my type of story -- terrific writing from a confident storyteller. What more could you want? Sure to be in the mix with the best thrillers of the year, it's a thrilling and haunting read from first page to last."--Michael Koryta, New York Times bestselling author of HOW IT HAPPENED and THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD
"With witty writing, sharp characterizations and a killer premise, THE ANOMALY is escapist fun perfectly tuned to our age of conspiracy theories and alternative facts."--Thomas Mullen, author of DARKTOWN
"This is my kind of book. The suspense mounts slowly... slowly... Then the horror lingers for a long, long time."--R. L. Stine, New York Times bestselling author of the Goosebumps and Fear Street series
