by William Bayer
Publisher: Villard Books
William Bayer has, over the past several years, built an extraordinarily impressive body of work.
He won an Edgar Allan Poe Award for Peregrine. He won critical acclaim and bestsellerdom with the wonderfully compelling Switch. With the publication of Pattern Crimes, also a national bestseller, Bayer was accorded such accolades as: "He wears not just the clothes, but the laurel that once belonged to Elmore Leonard" (San Francisco Examiner), and ". . . there is an electricity to Bayer's writing -- rich design, crackling fabric -- that sets it apart from the usual competent thriller. This deceiver is a bona fide novelist, you first think to yourself, but it is really the combination of the two, formula writer and writer writer (not unlike Dashiel Hammett) that puts Mr. B. in a special niche" (Washington Post).
And yet, nothing could have prepared the reader for Blind Side.
William Bayer's latest novel takes lovers of psychological thrillers into new territory, a land so scorching, so brutal, so raw that not only is this his best book yet, but it stretches the boundaries of noir literature.
Geoffrey Barnett is a photographer. Due to a mysterious trauma in his past, he has for many years been unable to photograph people. When Kimberly Yates suddenly enters his life, Geoffrey's world is turned upside down. She nurtures him back to life -- emotionally, mentally and sexually. Eventually he is able to photograph her.
Then she disappears.
Like a puff of smoke, as if she were just a dream, a vision that Geoffrey has conjured up.
As he begins to search for Kimberly, Geoffrey discovers that perhaps she was a dream. Soon, he begins to wish that she weren't real, because his obsession with her turns his life from a dream into a nightmare. As he discovers the truth about Kimberly she leads him down a path of greed, deceit and blackmail. It is a road littered with sexual perversions and struggles for power, with unbelievable pleasures and even greater pain, with powerful love and passion for life and, inevitably, the terror of death.
Blind Side is a brilliant puzzle. As it is slowly pieced together, it reveals a vision that will excite and shock the reader. It is a love story in a world turned cruel and a thriller that establishes William Bayer as a master of the genre.
