"Adam Sternbergh is a genre-bender of the highest caliber. Part thriller, part Western, part pulpy whodunit, The Blinds is a propulsive and meaningful meditation on redemption and loss. It's witty, electrifying, vivid, and thoroughly original."--Dennis Lehane, author of Since We Fell
"The Blinds is brilliantly original. Fast-paced, ranging, and inventive, Adam Sternbergh's restless imagination once again conjures characters and scenarios with heartbreaking insight, peril, and startling stakes. Readers take heed; this is a hell of a ride."--Smith Henderson, author of Fourth of July Creek
"Adam Sternbergh tops my list of drop-everything-and-read novelists. With hints of Charles Willeford and Philip K. Dick, and rendered with achingly beautiful prose, The Blinds plucks the strings of Sternbergh's favored themes-identity, loss, meta-reality-creating a symphony of noirish grit and improbable grace."--Gregg Hurwitz, author of The Nowhere Man
"The Blinds is a wild, fever-dream of a novel. Posing questions about the power-and peril-of running from the past, Sternbergh's vivid vision and the people he brings to life will haunt you long after you turn the shocking final pages."--Julia Dahl, author of Invisible City and Conviction
"A thrilling Western unlike any you've read before."--Vulture
"A tense, broiling, 21st-century Western with a crafty premise."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"A quick-paced story of crime and deception."--Dallas Morning News
"Sternbergh shows again why he is one of the most inventive thriller writers working today."--Booklist (starred review)
"The newest release from the riveting Adam Sternbergh."--Popsugar
"[An] exciting new thriller. . . . This book doesn't pull any punches."--Bookish
"Guilt, memory, and redemption swirl through this inventive science fiction-based thriller."--Publishers Weekly
"Eerie. . . . Sternbergh's characters are intriguing, his plot is suspenseful and his outlook is endearingly dark. . . . Sternbergh is an original, grandly irreverent writer."--Washington Post
"Crackles with noirish delights. . . . Sternbergh writes a beautiful sentence, even when the subject is mayhem, and he has a talent for lean, propulsive plotting."--Newsweek
"Expertly melds the thriller and the Western. . . . Truly original."--Lisa Ko, author of The Leavers
