Mr. Miller

$16.99

The ultimate internet conspiracy thriller

Michael Bellicher is working for a successful consultancy agency and has everything going for him. During a night spent at work, he witnesses something he should never have seen. Michael has to flee to try and escape a powerful organization conspiring to frame him. And anywhere he goes, he is followed by the mysterious Mr. Miller, who seems to know almost everything about him. In a sparkling and exhilarating fast-paced style, Den Tex creates a scarily timely universe ruled by espionage-like computer techniques―full of managers, mergers, and opaque negotiations―and with that a new genre: the corporate thriller.

Reviews

‘Because of the rare combination of a spotless style, the sympathy for the dangers that the protagonist faces, the suspense and, despite it all, the hero’s undiminished ability to put his situation in perspective, this year’s Golden Noose goes to Mr. Miller by Charles den Tex.’ ―JURY REPORT, GOLDEN NOOSE AWARD

‘A fast-moving thriller: the pace is perfectly judged, the writing astute and perceptive, both economical and expressive.’ ―Euro Crime

‘A singular mix of action, interaction, contemplation, and fantasy’ ―Crimezone

‘An action thriller with brains’ ―Het Parool

‘Clear, compelling prose. A must’ ―Vrij Nederland

‘An incredibly exciting, tightly written story’ ―De Volkskrant

‘Den Tex does not write a single line unthinkingly. His language continuously sparkles and surprises. Mr. Miller is witty, fast, exciting, adventurous, somewhat strange, and above all a stylistic masterpiece. In Den Tex there are no futuristic concepts, only espionage-like computer techniques that are possible with the current state of affairs. He creates a universe full of managers, mergers, and opaque negotiations, and with that a new genre: the corporate thriller.’ ―NRC Handelsblad
