The Curiosity, Stephen Kiernan’s debut novel, is a gripping, poignant, and thoroughly original thriller that raises disturbing questions about the very nature of life and humanity—man as a scientific subject, as a tabloid plaything, as a living being, as a curiosity.…   Dr. Kate Philo and her scientific exploration team make a breathtaking discovery in the Arctic: the body of a man buried deep in the ice. Remarkably, the frozen man is brought back to the lab and successfully reanimated. As the man begins to regain his memories, the team learns that he was—is—a judge, Jeremiah Rice, and the last thing he remembers is falling overboard into the Arctic Ocean in 1906.   Thrown together by circumstances beyond their control, Kate and Jeremiah grow closer. But the clock is ticking and Jeremiah’s new life is slipping away...and all too soon, Kate must decide how far she is willing to go to protect the man she has come to love.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A true page-turner, mixing cutting edge science with an all-too-human love story, while simultaneously taking on the Big Questions. It’s one of the most assured debuts in years, a book that will stop your heart and start it again.” Justin Cronin, bestselling author of The Passage
“Ambitious…An emotionally satisfying and brisk narrative.” Publishers Weekly
“A smart, heady, and irresistible science thriller.” Booklist (starred review)
“Kiernan’s fiction debut is an impressively complex and engaging work that handles challenging subject matter with clever and haunting prose. A number of diverse characters offer their memories, allowing the drama to unfold before numerous pairs of eyes and in many distinct voices, which gives the novel at once an impressively large scope and a sense of intimacy. Heartbreaking and inspiring, this is a suspenseful and addictive reading experience that will not soon be forgotten.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
