Land of the Blind (Paperback)
While working the weekend night shift, Caroline Mabry, a weary Spokane police detective, encounters a seemingly unstable but charming derelict who tells her, "I'd like to confess." But he insists on writing out his statement in longhand. In the forty-eight hours that follow, the stranger confesses to not just a crime but an entire life--spinning a wry and haunting tale of youth and adulthood, of obsession and revenge, and of two men's intertwined lives.
Fiendishly clever and darkly funny, Land of the Blind speaks to the bonds and compromises we make as children--and to the fatal errors we can make at any time.
