“An impressive new work that should be seen.”

Los Angeles Times

“Ingenious mindf**k.”

The Hollywood Reporter

Escape your reality. Face your fantasy.

A new virtual wonderland provides total sensory immersion. Just log in, choose any identity, vanish into a dizzying array of online realms and indulge your every whim. The Nether promises complete freedom.

But when a young detective uncovers a disturbing brand of entertainment that blurs the boundaries between personal liberty and moral chaos, she triggers a dark battle over technology and human desire.

“Filled with so many twists and turns and surprises.”


Winner of the 2012 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, The Nether is both serpentine crime drama and haunting sci-fi thriller that explores the darkest corners of imagination and the consequences of living out our most private dreams.

“A tale that entertains while tickling the brain. Remember the name Jennifer Haley.”
