Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "More than 25 years after it was ignominiously cancelled, the cult TV show Twin Peaks is set to return for a new season on Showtime in mid-2017. In anticipation, co-creator (with David Lynch) Frost presents this long-awaited novel, which takes the form of a mysterious dossier discovered by the FBI at an active crime scene. Assembled by a personage known only as the Archivist, it aims to reveal the true nature of the darkness in the woods that surrounds the seemingly idyllic town of Twin Peaks, Washington. The dossier collects a multitude of historical documents such as newspaper clippings and top secret government files to sketch in a vast conspiracy that includes Lewis and Clark, Freemasons, the Nez Perce tribe, UFO sightings at Roswell, L. Ron Hubbard, and Richard M. Nixon. Enough to make the X-Files look like a Dick and Jane primer, Frost's engrossing, exceedingly clever novel certainly doesn't solve all of Twin Peaks' mysteries, but who would want that? This large, elaborately produced, illustrated volume will be eagerly devoured by existing fans, who will be tempted to read the whole book in one sitting, as well as by newbies anxious to get up to speed before the new season airs.--Christopher, Rob Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Devotees of the cult TV series Twin Peaks, due for a revival in 2017 on Showtime, will welcome this inventive jigsaw puzzle of a book from one of the show's creators. The tantalizing revelations concern events preceding the prequel movie, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, and those following the show's last episode. Frost's impressive effort demands close attention. He provides information in the form of a 2016 FBI case file, classified "three levels above top secret," assigned to an unnamed agent after a dossier was recovered from a "crime scene that is still under active investigation." The file consists of an eclectic collection of documents, including facsimiles of purported excerpts from the writings of explorers Lewis and Clark, a newspaper account of an unusual 1927 camping trip, and censored government materials pertaining to UFOs. These documents may be related to special agent Dale Cooper's legendary inquiry into the murder of 18-year-old Laura Palmer. This cryptic volume captures the show's trademark quirky noir flavor as it raises new questions that Twin Peaks fans are sure to feast on. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
