Cutter’s Grove

by Patrick Dakin

Stranded one night during a violent sandstorm in the California desert, Lucas Tunney sees something that scares him senseless. Was it really the ghost of a young child that appeared to him through the swirling mass of dust and debris, or was the vision simply a figment of his imagination, brought on by stress and exhaustion? Although almost sure the sighting was genuine, there remains a lingering doubt.After he’s rescued by an accommodating motorist, Lucas accepts an offer of employment in the nearby town of Cutter’s Grove. A few weeks later he’s told about the mysterious disappearance of an eleven-year-old girl that took place a year earlier. Shown a picture of the missing child Lucas suddenly realizes his experience in the desert was, indeed, real.

But he’s now faced with the problem of what to do with this knowledge. Going to the authorities is out of the question – he’ll be locked up for sure based on irrefutable evidence of insanity if he starts expounding on the existence of ghosts. It seems he has little choice in the matter – he has to try to determine the circumstances surrounding the girl’s fate on his own and, in the process, learn who might have been responsible.

Lucas’ search for answers will leave him questioning everything he thought he knew, and will forever change his life.

What Does Matt Epstein Know That We Don’t?

One summer day, Matt Epstein applied to 20 different companies on LinkedIn to find work. He waited.

And waited.

He never heard back a single response. Fear began to creep in. He couldn’t find a job because of one simple reason: He was blending in with the masses. Panic began to race through his mind. “Seriously, what the hell am I doing here?” He took a deep breath, stepped back and assessed the situation.

And then a stroke of genius hit him.

He was going to be bold. Inspiring. Outrageous. Awkward. Funny. Unbelievable.

It was in this moment Matt Epstein created the most viral and successful job campaign of our lives. By the time his campaign was finished, he had amassed these results:

• Received 80 interview offers from companies like Google,, Microsoft, Amazon, Etsy and SigFig (among many more)
• Received over 400,000 unique visits and 720,000 page views for his site
• Received over 450,000 YouTube views
• Received 20,000 Facebook Likes, 4,800 Tweets and 4,100 Google +’s
• Received print, online and TV coverage across the world from TechCrunch, Gizmodo, to the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal

How is it that Matt was able to get publicity from just about every big name media outlet, generate a massive fan base and garner 80 interview offers from top tier, innovative companies while so many of us have to beg for a single interview?

What does Matt Epstein know that we don’t?
It’s simple really. He acknowledged one fundamental fact:

The resume is dead.
