Staff Reviews

I don’t know how I missed this MASTERPIECE by Blake Crouch, but WOW am I glad that I stumbled upon it! Pines is the first book in the Wayward Pines series (which was made into a TV series that I apparently missed as well, and in true Mr. Crouch fashion, it's a twisty, mind-bending thriller that will leave you thinking, "What on earth did I just read and I NEED MORE!?"
The good news is that there are two other books in the series. (Which I have immediately started reading…because I couldn't stop after book one.) Without giving away too much,
Pines begins with secret service agent, Ethan Burke, waking up in a hospital in a town called Wayward Pines, Idaho. He was on his way to the town to investigate the disappearance of two of his fellow agents, when a semi hit the car he was traveling in just outside of town. Ethan soon realizes that he is without his wallet, phone, and briefcase - none of which anyone really seems to be able to tell him where they are. As the days pass, Ethan begins to unravel things that are not quite right in Wayward Pines.
I’ll stop there and just say that not all is as it appears in this book, and it will keep you on the edge of your seat (it will literally happen as you read, and you'll be moving all over the place - it’s impossible not to) until the very end.

The first book of the smash-hit Wayward Pines trilogy, from the New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter, Recursion, and Upgrade

One way in. No way out.

Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in Wayward Pines, Idaho, with a mission: locate two federal agents who went missing in the bucolic town one month earlier. But within minutes of his arrival, Ethan is involved in a violent accident. He comes to in a hospital, with no ID, no cell phone, and no briefcase.

As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation turns up more questions than answers: Why can’t he get any phone calls through to his wife and son in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what is the purpose of the electrified fences surrounding the town? Are they meant to keep the residents in? Or something else out?

Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan farther from the world he knew, from the man he was, until he must face a horrifying fact—he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive.

The nail-bitingly suspenseful opening installment in Blake Crouch’s blockbuster Wayward Pines trilogy, Pines is at once a brilliant mystery tale and the first step into a genre-bending saga of suspense, science fiction, and horror.
