Meet Blake Crouch.

Blake Crouch likes messing with your mind. Whether in the Wayward Pines trilogy (recently adapted as a TV series), Good Behavior (also a TV series), or the critical gem Dark Matter (in the works as a film), his characters encounter moral dilemmas, often with a sci-fi twist. Recursion, his latest novel, takes things deeper, mixing elements of a police procedural with time travel, alternative universes and just a bit of mad scientist menace. Naturally, it's already being developed by Shona Rhimes for Netflix.

My colleague David Carnoy, author of several mystery novels, joins in for this episode of Book Club, while Scott was out of town.
