37. The Blinds by Adam Sternbergh
The Blinds is the nickname for the small town in the middle of nowhere Texas populated by a group of people who have all had their minds wiped and given new identities. Some of them are former criminals given a second chance and others are witnesses to crimes that have chosen this as an alternative to normal witness protection. The understanding has always been that as long as they stay within the confines of The Blinds that they will be safe from the outside world, but now two murders have happened in quick succession and something seems to be brewing. It turns out there may be more to The Blinds than it first seems.
Really liked this book Adam Sternbergh has an excellent ability to create interesting fully formed worlds that are out of the ordinary. The story is really intriguing. I would definitely recommend this book. I give it a 9 out of 10.
