Critics and readers have called Senseless the most disturbing novel ever written. This literary thriller delivers an unsettling mix of torture, guilt, and moral ambiguity. Eliott Gast, a seasoned American economist, is abducted in Brussels by a shadowy anti-globalization group. He spends forty days in a white apartment, questioned and tortured by his captors, every moment broadcast on the Internet. His mind racing, Gast tries to explain why he is here, exploring sins both small and large.
Originally published in the U.S. just days after the 9/11 attacks, Senseless is a cult classic that continues to resonate. Published internationally, Senseless has not been available as an ebook—until now. Can you handle it?
