Publisher Description

From international bestselling author Brad Parks comes a new thriller about an ordinary man who may be able to save the world as we know it—but to do so, he must make an impossible choice.

Nate Lovejoy is a self-proclaimed nobody, a stay-at-home dad who doesn’t believe he’s important to anyone but his wife and their two daughters. So it’s a shock when members of a powerful secret society kidnap and spirit Nate away to a mansion at the behest of their leader, Vanslow DeGange, who claims to know the future. He’s foreseen that a billion people could die—unless Nate acts.

It seems improbable, especially given what DeGange says will set this mass casualty incident in motion: a lawsuit against the biggest power company in Virginia, being brought by Nate’s wife, Jenny.

Nate quickly smells a scam being perpetrated by the power company. But at every turn, it becomes apparent there’s more to DeGange’s gift than Nate wants to acknowledge. A billion people really could die, and Nate might be the only one who can save them.

All he has to do is the unthinkable.

Unthinkable is a fast, furious, fun and deliciously twisty tale told with the deft and accomplished hand of a veteran storyteller. Nate and Jenny are truly a duo to root for, and there’s a substantive issue at the core of the story about which we should all be better informed. Parks has belted another one out of the park with a focused swing of the bat.

— David Baldacci 


  • “A textbook one-sitting read whose fiendishly inventive details only intensify its remorseless momentum.

    — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
  • Parks makes suspension of disbelief to his premise accessible via solid prose and characterizations. Readers who enjoy jaw-dropping but credible plot twists will be enthralled.

    — Publishers Weekly
  • This fast-paced novel, narrated in alternating chapters by Nate and Jenny, has twists and turns that’ll keep readers guessing.

    — Library Journal
  • Inventive, well written, fast-paced, and filled with twists.

    — The Associated Press
  • The ongoing battle between the concept of free will and predestination makes Unthinkable so intriguing, along with the mystery behind this strange organization and the nature of their true intentions. Parks has created a dynamic, vivid and incredibly interesting world with Unthinkable.

    — Culturess
  • Charm doesn’t usually figure in mystery-thrillers, yet Parks’s story is loaded with it. It’s the kind of charm that could only be found in a plot about a stay-at-home dad written by, well, a stay-at-home dad.

    — Jersey’s Best
  • A mind bending thriller with a gripping, twisted plot you will second guess until you reach the stunning end. Unthinkable is addictive.

    — Melinda Leigh, #1 Wall Street Journal and Amazon bestselling author
