Imagine a place populated by criminals - people plucked from their lives, with their memories altered, who've been granted new identities and a second chance. Welcome to The Blinds, a dusty town in rural Texas populated by misfits who don't know if they've perpetrated a crime or just witnessed one. All they do know is that they opted into the programme and that if they try to leave, they will end up dead.

For eight years, Sheriff Calvin Cooper has kept an uneasy peace - but after a suicide and a murder in quick succession, the town's residents revolt. Cooper has his own secrets to protect, so when his new deputy starts digging, he needs to keep one step ahead of her - and the mysterious outsiders who threaten to tear the whole place down. The more he learns, the more the hard truth is revealed: The Blinds is no sleepy hideaway, it's simmering with violence and deception, heartbreak and betrayal, and it's fit to burst.

Review:

'An addictive and intelligently woven tale. utterly gripping.' Source: Liz Loves Books

'Witty, electrifying, vivid, and thoroughly original.' Author: Dennis Lehane

'Fast-paced, ranging, and inventive.' Author: Smith Henderson

'Adam Sternbergh tops my list of drop-everything-and-read novelists ... Rendered with achingly beautiful prose, the book plucks the strings of Sternbergh's favored themes - identity, loss, meta-reality - creating a symphony of noirish grit and improbable grace.' Author: Gregg Hurwitz

'A wild, fever-dream of a novel. Posing questions about the power - and peril - of running from the past. It will haunt you long after you turn the shocking final pages.' Author: Julia Dahl

Sleek 21st century noir... brought to life with a cast of eccentric characters and an intriguing mystery. Brimming with originality and suspense, this is a propulsive thriller. Source: Book Riot

'An unsettling tale of deception that marries the atmosphere of Philip K. Dick and the bloody shades of darkness of a Jim Thompson. a fascinating read and with a final shoot out worthy of Quentin Tarantino, this will surprise and delight.' Source: Crime Time

'A well-written blend of the science fiction, western and crime genres. an intriguing premise, strong narrative hooks and a brisk pace make this a riveting read.' Source: Guardian

A riveting read. Source: The Week's Best Fiction Books of 2018

Book Description:

Astonishing debut on the Faber list from an Edgar Award-nominated author, described by Dennis Lehane as "propulsive and meaningful"
