"The Ferryman Institute"

Colin Gigl is a graduate of Trinity College with degrees in creative writing and computer science (no, he’s not quite sure how that happened, either). He currently works at a start-up in New York and lives with his wife in New Jersey.

He applied the Page 69 Test to The Ferryman Institute, his debut novel, and reported the following:
What a great question. To be honest, it both is and it isn't representative of the book. On Page 69, Charlie is once again about to be thrown into an emergency assignment. It's one of the more serious, darker parts of the book, as there is nothing pleasant about this particular case. While the book generally has a bit more humor on display then is evident from that section, I won't say that it's entirely unrepresentative, either -- despite the humor, there's a serious core to this story. So a reader would certainly get that sense, but might not pick up on some of the lighter bits until later.
