9780060394394: Land of the Blind

Burned out and working the weekend night shift, Caroline Mabry is confronted with the arrival of an apparently unstable but charming

derelict, who announces that he wants to confess to a murder. At first she dismisses him as a nutcase. But when she realizes he is none other than former wunderkind politician Clark Mason, she agrees to let him write out his confession. Nineteen hours later, with Mason still feverishly writing, Caroline finds herself scrambling to investigate his long, progressively

darker and more sinister tale before Monday morning arrives and the weekday detectives swoop in to take the case for themselves.

Review:

Jess Walter has just about lapped the field with his superior first novel 'Over Tumbled Graves. The suspense and surprises are terrific, but best of all are the characters he has managed to create. (James Patterson)

Jess Walter has just about lapped the field with his superior first novel 'Over Tumbled Graves. The suspense and surprises are terrific, but best of all are the characters he has managed to create. (Lee Child)

A most accomplished debut. (The Sunday Telegraph)

"In this disquieting first novel...Jess Walter ('s)...incisive sensisitivity...emerges as a bitter metaphor for the limited aspirations of people who have always lived on the edge of the water, condemned to dead end lives."
New York Times Book Review.

(New York Times Book Review)

An exceptional crime novel that transcends the mystery of crime and takes a courageous look at an even more profound mystery- the mystery of what it takes to continue living. As Jess Walter probes the nature of evil and its impact, he challenges his readers to reconsider their own complexity. Totally absorbing. (Ursula Hegi on Over Tumbled Graves)

Review:

"A most accomplished debut." -- The Sunday Telegraph
