J. J. Abrams loves mystery.
So it should come as no surprise that there are few details about the new book the "Alias" and "Lost" creator is collaborating on with a supernatural crime novelist.
The New York Times reports that Abrams has joined forces with Doug Dorst, author of "Alive in Necropoli," for a forthcoming novel that publisher Little, Brown and Company said on Wednesday it had acquired.
A release from the publisher included a statement from Abrams in which he said "Doug is a genius." The "Star Trek" director also added he “could not be more excited to collaborate with him on this completely original project.”
The book is scheduled to be released in Fall 2012.
