In a world pushed beyond the moral simplicity of black and white, all that survives is Grey.

For Michael Rivers, life is perfect.

Michael has everything; he is tall, handsome, and famous, worshipped by billions of fans around the globe. He is wealthy beyond measure, the heir apparent to RiverGroup, one of the handful of high-tech corporations that controls the world.

And Michael is in love, perfect love, with Nora, his beautiful,witty, and equally perfect fiancée, the only woman with whom he can see surgically altered monochromatic eye to eye.

When an assassin’s bullets pierce Michael’s body before the unblinking eyes of cameras, reporters, and viewers at a press junket, everything changes, forcing Michael to question his previously perfect world. Forcibly separated from Nora, Michael seeks to uncover the reasons behind the attempted assassination, leading him to reexamine his relationships with his loud, profane, and narcissistically Ültra father; his estranged mother; and the perilous, contaminated, neo-feudalistic world that lies beyond the safe and protected bubble of corporate family life. Michael must delve deep into his past, to a time when he was the golden boy, dancing furiously to the beat of notorious all-night Rage parties thrown by his father.

High fashion, corporate malfeasance, celebrity culture, and a media obsessed with the next big thing collide with exuberant violence and volatile intensity in Grey, the explosive debut novel by newcomer Jon Armstrong.

“Grey is a legendary book waiting to happen. It’s a mad, stylish, trippy, endlessly inventive romp through the biohazardous wastes of post-genre literature. Jon Armstrong is a genius, with an umlaut, to the fifth power.”
— Michael Chabon, author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay
