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!

Listener Opinions

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kasia The Bookworm | 1/19/2014

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 1/18/2014

    " 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. "

    " i really want to give it 2.5 stars... but i just could not get into this book like I did his other one... so I guess 2 stars will do! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Valdivia | 1/1/2014

    " Fantastic book. Picked up on a whim and was not disappointed. A strange and sometimes funny story about a simpleton in the middle of nowhere. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 10/28/2013

    " Surprisingly good, especially for a freebie I picked up at work! Great characters, especially the narrator. 'Imagine a Coen Brothers' film in which Forrest Gump gets mistaken for Osama bin Laden' - that about sums it up perfectly! Clever little tale. "

    " Terrible, don't do it. Not funny, super dumb so if that's your thing then maybe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz Gillingham | 8/31/2013

    " This book was a lot of fun and fabulous. I could not put it down. I liked how he didn't poke fun at the protagonist, which would have been easy to do. You can't help but root for Odeel in all of his travails. Really great. Would like to give it a five, but I'm pretty selective with fives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mfeagler | 5/30/2013

    " Very, very funny. Syntax is reflective and mildly peculiar, missing something, just like the protagonist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jari | 4/27/2013

    " An extraordinary book! One of the best books I've ever read. You just can't let it go from your hands! "

    " Great book. Incredible narrative voice: naive, sympathetic, absurd. Excellent sociopolitical satire. Important. "

    " adored it... crazy, fantastic, suspension of disbelief, but man, this book just works... was sad when i finished it because it was over... "

    " Well so much for thinking this would be a nice rollicking tale after my last read! Similar themes in novel form - small towns, terrorism, religion and government heavy-handedness. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karine | 1/17/2012

    " This book is incredibly stupid and insulting to Americans (it's written by an Australian). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 3/4/2011

    " I actually really enjoyed this book. It's pretty derivative of the whole "Forrest Gump innocent idiot" motif, but it's hilarious and well-written anyway... "
