Read The Blinds Online Free - A blistering thriller from the Edgar-nominated author of Shovel Ready—a speculative modern Western with elements of Cormac McCarthy, Jim Thompson, and the Coen brothers that is wickedly funny, razor-sharp, and totally engrossing
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. What’s clear to them is that if they 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, aching heartbreak and dark betrayals.

So I finished this in 2 days... you may not think that's impressive but I also worked 2 doubles both of those days.. In other words I could not put this down. It wasn't a perfect novel but it was damn good... I can't wait to read more of his stuff.

Good Lord this book is addictive. I could not put it down and raced through it in a day. Fans of Blake Crouch's Wayward Pines trilogy will eat this one up. Fast paced, heart pounding, and absolutely fascinating. Best premise for a book I've seen in a long time. 4 stars.

The Blinds is now one of my favorite Book of the Month picks (with Presumed Missing by Susie Steiner being another). This western-type thriller was heaps of fun, while still being unnerving-and I read it speedily over two days. As my reading pace has been slower this summer, that is praise in it...

As soon as I read a description of the. plot I felt that this was the type of book I would enjoy. I downloaded the e-book immediately. My experience was different than the majority of readers. The premise was original and I believe it could make a good movie. The people living in this tiny, dusty...

These people's fates have already played out. Whether they won or lost was decided for them long ago.
4.5 rounded up. And please note that I rarely give out 5 stars AND I don't like thrillers generally (I don't think I've ever given more than 3 stars to a thriller). I like the idea of thrillers an...

This was my first with this author. I hadn't heard of this book till I saw this as a choice for my Book of the Month selection. I liked the premise of this where criminals and innocents live in a town with no prior memories of who they were. The novel was fast paced and there were several diff...
