Golden State by Ben H. Winters

Golden State is a frighteningly timely novel set in a world where everything is recorded and no one can be trusted.

Welcome to Golden State, where the worst crime you can commit is to lie.

Laz Ratesic is a veteran of the State’s special police.  As one of the few individuals allowed to ‘speculate’ on what might have happened when a crime is committed, it’s his job to find the full and final truth.

But when a man falls from a roof in suspicious circumstances, it sets in motion a terrifying series of events which will shatter Laz’s world for ever.

Because when those in control of the truth decide to twist it, only those with the power to ask questions can fight back.

Peer & Press Reviews

Golden State is a prescient, devastating commentary on humanity’s disintegrating attachment to reality and truth, expertly told through the prism of a police-procedural, dystopian nightmare.  Winters has written a 1984 for the 21st century.  Not just a thrilling book, but an important one.

Blake Crouch, author of Dark Matter

An entertaining, unpredictable read… very much a dystopia for our times.

Financial Times

Not many writers would take on Orwell, Ray Bradbury, the nature of truth, and the current administration all at a blow.  Big shoes to fill – and they fit Ben H. Winters just fine.  Golden State grabs notions of disinformation and literalism and brilliantly turns them on their head to see what falls from their pockets.

James Sallis, author of Drive
