"In the wake of a national conspiracy, a hard-boiled detective finds himself on the wrong end of a death sentence. The executioner: himself, firing two suicidal shots to the head for his revealed crimes against society. However, as the bullets tear through his synapses, something strange happens. Snapping into overdrive, his brain refuses to give up without a fight, throwing him into an intense psychological odyssey of survival.
Taking place entirely in this one decisive moment, No Man’s Land invites the reader to witness the inner workings of a psyche hovering between life and death. With its unnamed hero’s subconscious desperately refusing to accept the inevitable, it frantically assembles ever-more bizarre and terrifying scenarios for him to play out. Taking inspiration from the conventions of popular literature, reality and fiction blur together, creating a genre spanning epic that pushes the fourth wall to the limit."
