Description

Banerjhee Rolf, a bright, level-headed Indian-American scientist, is content to spend his days with his wife, tending his garden and studying his beloved astronomy. When Rolf's relationship with his seedy, drug-dealing neighbour, Toby Pride, and Pride's stoner girlfriend takes a weird turn, Rolf's placid world is shattered and he becomes a fugitive from justice.

Reviews

"So many of the wonderful surprises are packed within both characters, revealed one onion-skin layer at a time, and by the time Nisbet stomps his foot on the accelerator, you realize you're trapped in a world where there's roiling chaos in the heavens, death lurking at the microscopic level, and of course, a serious amount of bad luck on earth - all in 144 blistering pages. If noir is about a lone man making his way through a hostile universe, then Nisbet's masterful Dark Companion takes us to the outer reaches." -Booklist
