From the acclaimed author of Darktown comes the most visionary crime novel since Minority Report.

'It's rare to find a thriller with such a fantastic and original concept. I was gripped' --- Anthony Horowitz

In a world where a global event has blinded every person on the planet, one detective seeks a murderer who should not, cannot, exist.

Seven years ago, everyone in the world went blind in a matter of months. Technology helped people adjust to the new normal, creating a device that approximates vision, downloading visual data directly to people's brains. But what happens when someone finds a way to manipulate it and change what people see?

Homicide detective Mark Owens has been on the force since before The Blinding. When a scientist is murdered, and the only witness insists the killer was blacked out of her vision, Owens doesn't believe her - until a similar murder happens in front of him. With suspects ranging from tech billionaires to anti-modernity cultists, Owens must conduct an investigation in which he can't even trust his own eyes...
