Product Details

Praise

“A deep, weird and uncanny tale. I stayed up all night reading and then it gave me nightmares.” —Sheila Heti, author of Motherhood and How Should a Person Be?

“Once I started reading The Creep, I didn’t stop. Equal parts strange and engrossing. A book to devour.” —Iain Reid, author of Foe and I’m Thinking of Ending Things

“Sinister good fun, full of dark insights into the cracked psyche of this era.” —Lee Henderson, author of The Road Narrows As You Go

“It is so refreshing to read a novel from an author who actually seems like they were alive when they wrote it. Casually gripping and unassumingly smart, Michael LaPointe’s The Creep is convincingly disguised as a thriller, but beneath the intrigue and expert plotting is something much more serious, and sad.” —Lauren Oyler, author of Fake Accounts

“[A] dark, cunning thriller. . . . [T]he delicious blend of pulp, intricate plotting, and evocative prose reminded me of John LeCarre, the master of highbrow literary thrills. . . . LaPointe has crafted an intellectually ambitious yet relentlessly entertaining mystery, one that can be enjoyed for its literary skill as much as its plot twists. . . . A compulsively-readable novel that will grip you all the way to the chilling climax.” —Vancouver Sun

“Like all high-velocity thrillers, this one is loaded with grisly twists. . . . But it also taps into the fears that linger in all of our newsfeeds. . . . [The Creep is] eerie, sharp and a little zany—the perfect escapist read for a rainy cottage weekend.” —Reader’s Digest Canada

“The name says it all: This book about a journalist who comes across a story just too good to be true is decidedly creepy.” —Canadian Living
