Robert Luxley has a biological problem that he does not understand and cannot control: one touch from his bare hand will leave you paralyzed for fifteen minutes. He thinks he’s one of a kind, until he meets Cassandra, another carrier of what she calls Sensory Deprivation Syndrome.

Fearing discovery, Luxely follows Cassandra through a dark underground of “Deprivers” in a desperate search for his brother Nicholas, who has been taken hostage by a radical gang of carriers with a terrifying agenda. Meanwhile, as knowledge of SDS spreads, panic erupts, and soon no Depriver anywhere will be safe.

Quotes & Awards

  • Deprivers is the ultimate paranoia thriller—emphasis on the word thriller…X-Files fans take note…This book is going to blow you away!”

    Rockne S. O’Bannon, creator of Alien Nation and Farscape

  • “A book that gets under your skin and on your nerves. The science is impressive; the fiction is haunting. It has a lot on its mind; and it will touch you.”

    Mark Frost, cocreator of Twin Peaks

  • “Altman has crafted a SF thriller that also contains incisive probings of such timely topics as how the world reacts to victims of transmissible diseases, how fear leads to regimentation and segregation, and how reason and knowledge can fight against fear and ignorance.”

    Library Journal

  • “Christopher Lane adopts a low-key, somber tone, spicing his performance with skillful renditions of several regional and foreign accents. He shows equal mastery of Lakota, Brooklyn, and various Southern tongues in the US, and Russian, Dutch, and French accents abroad.”

    " Interesting book I picked up on an aimless journey through the library. Glad I read it. Makes you question some of the decisions you would make if put into similar situations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Koves | 8/31/2013

    " Deprivers are individuals who can deprive touched individuals of senses. The time and deprived sense varies. Interesting science fiction book that deals with the social issue of prejudice. "

    " The protagonists are unintentionally sociopaths, with little to no consideration of the feelings/reactions of those around them, and a concerning lack of emotional reaction to tragedy surrounding them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cecily | 4/28/2012

    " I didn't think I was a big fan of science fiction but I really enjoyed this book. I listened to it on audiobook and stayed at work to finish the last cd. I would recommend this to anyone. "
