Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, Idaho in search of two missing federal agents, but is involved in a violent accident within moments of his arrival. He awakes with no memory, no ID, no cell phone, no briefcase. And something’s off. Everyone seems helpful enough, but why doesn’t anyone believe him? And why is there an electric fence around the outside of the town?
By pure coincidence, I made the mistake of reading this at the same time as American Elsewhere by Robert Jackson Bennett, so we’ve got two weird but nice town books happening at the same time. This book sort of faded into the background of American Elsewhere, unfortunately.
Of the two, it was definitely the more creepy and stressful to listen to, which makes me think it far more deserving of the horror tag. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep going with the series.
