Editorial Reviews


"Sometimes stark and often startling, The Blind asks important questions about the arbitrary lines we draw between the sane and "crazy" members of our society. Along the way, this quick-paced debut novel pulls its reader into a web of deceit, recrimination, and ultimately, redemption." -Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweet and June

"Brady's fast-paced, riveting psychological chiller will wow suspense and thriller lovers alike. Brilliant character study and superior writing make this an outstanding debut."-Library Journal, starred review

"[C]omplex, intricately plotted...This psychological thriller grabs the reader and doesn't let go until the truth about Richard's past is finally revealed."-Publishers Weekly

"Brady's entertaining debut is told in the wry voice of Sam, who uses black humor to hide an undercurrent of pain.... [T]he journey (and the eye-opening, compassionate look at institutional life) is just as important as the destination, and for all her foibles, Sam is an irresistible diversion even if she can't seem to get out of her own way and be herself. A satisfying, darkly funny tale of redemption."-Kirkus Reviews

"Madness is at the heart of A.F. Brady's gritty, gripping The Blind, in which a psychologist navigates her own inner demons while attempting to care for her patients...with devastating results. The reader gets a front-row seat for her unraveling, which unfolds like a slow-motion train wreck-one where you can't look away. Sly, dark, and completely enthralling, The Blind is a knockout debut." -Kimberly Belle, national bestselling author of The Marriage Lie

"Dark, moody, and fascinatingly flawed describe Brady's ... protagonist.... A suspenseful look at our weaknesses and ability to forgive."-Booklist

"A propulsive, compelling debut. The main character, Sam, is complex, damaged and sympathetic. You won't soon forget this gripping psychological read." -A. J. Banner, #1 bestselling author of The Good Neighbor and The Twilight Wife

"In The Blind, A.F. Brady creates a fascinating character study. Is Sam James losing her grip on reality, infected by the mental patients she works so hard to help? Or is she the author of her own madness: a self-destructive combination of too much alcohol, an abusive relationship, and a murky past? As things fall apart, a new patient might just be the one to save her. Or is he the author of her misfortune? A page-turner that had me holding my breath until the last page." -Catherine McKenzie, bestselling author of Hidden and Fractured

"Reading A.F. Brady's The Blind is like watching a trapeze on the sharpest of edges. Moment for moment, we follow psychologist Sam James as she navigates madness: both her patients and her own. We see her try, with increasing dereliction, to repair her patients' lives as her own life collapses around her. We watch as this character unravels, with potentially tragic results. Smart, raw and intense, this is a nail-biting debut." -Anna Snoekstra, author of Only Daughter

"[A]n intriguing debut from a New York-based psychotherapist writing about a world she knows extremely well. Her protagonist, Samantha James, is an American psychiatrist whose personal life is a mess - she drinks far too much - but whose professional life caring for the mentally disturbed is beyond reproach.... Enter Richard, a patient with a daunting mental history, who usually refuses even to speak to the therapist assigned to him. Undeterred, Sam takes on the case - only to find that Richard seems to her to be almost completely sane. He may act obsessively from time to time, but there is no madness she can identify. What is the secret? Is Richard hiding his true nature so cleverly that even she cannot detect it? This is the question that sustains a gripping story to its fascinating conclusion." –The Daily Mail --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
