Blind Side is a psychological thriller, and so much more. Think Claire Kendall’s The Book of You meets Gone With The Wind with a sprinkling of Pat Barker’s Regeneration. Inspired by real-life events, it’s a tale of intrigue, terrorism and sexual obsession set in London around the time of the July 2005 terror attacks.
The novel explores love and friendship, guilt and betrayal, secrets and obsession. How well can we ever really know anyone? And what should we do if we find out that the unthinkable has happened? A shiver-inducing, debate-provoking thriller that confronts urgent issues of our times and contemplates some of our deepest fears.
Blind Side has relateable characters who will engage your emotions and a plot which (gasp!) won’t require you to suspend disbelief. (In fact, if you’ve ever been friends with someone who likes you a little too much, or fallen for someone you knew you shouldn’t, watch out…) Best of all, you may end up turning the pages till well past bedtime.
“Jennie Ensor’s writing is graceful, poetic, intelligent and captivating. She builds suspense brilliantly, and is a master at dialogue that communicates the accents and personalities of the characters. BLIND SIDE is a wonderful debut, an exciting story about three flawed and fascinating people living in dangerous times.”
— Gail Cleare, author of DESTINED and USA Today bestseller THE TASTE OF AIR
