Set in Kansas, described as a fast-paced tale exploring America's dark heart and combining everything from terrorists and torture to body parts in the freezer, Callisto is already acclaimed in the UK and in continental Europe, with rights sold in 12 languages and mounting.

Odell Deefus may be a little dumb, but when he discovers a freshly dug grave at the back of Dean Lowry's house, he understands that it's intended for him. When he finds an old lady's corpse in the freezer, he knows that she has been murdered. And when the bomb in his car explodes, levelling every building in the vicinity, and Odell must suddenly hide the body of a terrorist, even he recognises that things are getting seriously weird.

This blackly funny novel of our times follows what happens when Odell Deefus takes one wrong turn on the journey of his life and crashes into a world of oddballs, misfits, drug-dealers, religious fanatics and crooked cops, hypocrisy, torture, and bloody murder.

In Callisto, Odell Deefus discovers a vast web of corruption and deceit leading to the dark heart of America. Download and start listening now!

    " I didn't think I was going to make it through this, but by the time I decided that, I was to far in to quit. Kinda glad I did finish it, though, Not sure about all the comparisons on the book jacket - Sinclair Lewis, John Kennedy O'Toole, and Stephen Colbert - but it was entertaining. "

    " Barely could finish it. I am sure Mr. Krol is very clever, however; his cleverness was cleverly missing. "

    " Style reminding that of Holsten Caulfield.Book is sheer fun. "

    " Comparisons of Odell Deefus to Forrest Gump are on target, but there's a bit of Ignatius Reilly from Confederacy of Dunces as well. Not so subtle skewering of a certain administration's "war on terror." Although it drags a bit in the middle and reads a lot like a movie script at times, it's still clever and highly enjoyable. "
