The Invention of Sound

Author(s): Chuck Palahniuk

Crime & Thrillers | General Fiction

A father's decades-long search for a missing daughter.


A young woman about to perfect the darkest art.


The most dangerous secret Hollywood has ever kept.


Gates Foster lost his daughter, Lucy, seventeen years ago. He's never stopped searching. Suddenly, a shocking new development provides Foster with his first major lead in over a decade, and he may finally be on the verge of discovering the awful truth.


Meanwhile, Mitzi Ives has carved out a space among the Foley artists creating the immersive sounds giving Hollywood films their authenticity. Using the same secret techniques as her father before her, she's become an industry-leading expert in the sound of violence and horror, creating screams so bone-chilling, they may as well be real.


Soon Foster and Mitzi find themselves on a collision course that threatens to expose the violence hidden beneath Hollywood's glamorous façade.


A grim and disturbing reflection on the commodification of suffering and the dangerous power of art, THE INVENTION OF SOUND is Chuck Palahniuk at the peak of his literary powers--his most suspenseful, most daring, and most genre-defying work yet.
