    This book is well worth a read as a follow up to Limitless, it explores the hypnotizing effects and consequences of MDT-48 from a series of new perspectives and timezones, mainly the 1960's and our current day. It's nice to take another dive into the possibilities of the drug and our minds, the new narratives and characters provide a much deeper history of the drug whilst melding the lives of two distant relatives together in an uncany parallel. There's a fair few mentions and occasional crossov This book is well worth a read as a follow up to Limitless, it explores the hypnotizing effects and consequences of MDT-48 from a series of new perspectives and timezones, mainly the 1960's and our current day. It's nice to take another dive into the possibilities of the drug and our minds, the new narratives and characters provide a much deeper history of the drug whilst melding the lives of two distant relatives together in an uncany parallel. There's a fair few mentions and occasional crossover moments from the previous book which is exciting, and it answers a few questions that were left over from before. I did miss the first person intensity of Limitless and would have to say that the explosive and unpredictable nature of that book weren't quite matched here (for me), but it was a good read and I feel like it's been positioned well for another sequel which I'll preorder if it happens. I'd reccomend for any fans of the first book, though I can't picture it to have quite as much pull towards a new reader without the context of #1. I'm reviewing here (possibly??) for the first time because I really do appreciate the dive Alan took heading back into this world, I hope there are more.

    Full disclosure straight up.  I hadn't read The Dark Fields and only had the movie Limitless with Bradley Cooper to go buy, and I really enjoyed that movie!  What if you could take a pill to expand your brain power? To become whatever you wanted to be? Cure world ills, become richer than in your wildest dreams and more powerful than you ever thought possible? It would be great, wouldn't it? It would! Until you think about the knock-on effects and chain reactions which would ensue.

Until you think about the knock-on effects and chain reactions which would ensue. Not to mention the withdrawals and side effects. Under The Night is a superbly written novel about how this secretive and powerful brain expanding drug MDT-48 came to be. it's a book written in two parts, one from the point of view of Ned Sweeney in the '50s and Ray Sweeney, Ned's grandson 60 years later. The two stories unveil themselves at a decent pace and I enjoyed flicking from the 50's world of dark corners, secret testing, conspiracy and power to a modern day whodunit. Both characters are relatable and believable and I particularly enjoyed following Ned Sweeney go down the rabbit hole into his own brilliant, chemically enhanced mind and his ever-growing ego. It's a classic moral dilemma. If you had the pills in your possession would you take one? I'm not sure I would be able to resist! You don't need to have read The Dark Fields, but I do suggest you would have seen the movie Limitless at least.  The book does stand alone, but having the overarching story of MDT-48 under your belt makes this read all the richer.

    This is part of a series but you can read it as a standalone and the series continues after this one. This story begins in New York in the 50's where an ad man is given a hallucinogenic drug that opens up his world- it alters how he thinks and suddenly he craves it as much as the power and knowledge it gives him. But, he burns too bright and bad things happen. Fast forward to his grandson who learns more about the grandfather he never knew and the secrets he held. A breakthrough drug, secret CIA This is part of a series but you can read it as a standalone and the series continues after this one. This story begins in New York in the 50's where an ad man is given a hallucinogenic drug that opens up his world- it alters how he thinks and suddenly he craves it as much as the power and knowledge it gives him. But, he burns too bright and bad things happen. Fast forward to his grandson who learns more about the grandfather he never knew and the secrets he held. A breakthrough drug, secret CIA druggings, brilliant minds, and a dangerous conspiracy leads to the question of whether this dangerous drug was a mistake that was covered up in the late 50's or is it still out there. This is the kind of book that brings up more questions than answers and like the drug, you can't get enough. My thanks to the publisher for the advance copy.
