"THEY CALL US THOUGHT THIEVES, BUT IT’S NOT LIKE WE HAVE A CHOICE. ALL THE SICK, TWISTED THINGS ROLLING AROUND IN PEOPLE’S HEADS, WE CAN’T HELP BUT HEAR."
Across the nation, telepaths are rounded up and sent to the beautiful mountain town of Brightside. They’re told it’s just like everywhere else, probably even nicer. As long as they follow the rules and don’t ever think about leaving.
Joe Nolan is one of the accused, a man who spent his life hearing things people left unsaid. And now he’s paying for it on his hundredth day in Brightside, fighting to keep hold of his secret in a town where no thought is safe.
"THAT’S WHY THEY’VE ROUNDED US UP, STUCK US IN THIS LITTLE TOWN. IT’S TO MAKE YOU FEEL SAFE. BUT THEY CAN’T KEEP US HERE FOREVER. IT’S DAY 100 AND IT’S ALL GONNA END. ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, I’M GETTING OUT OF BRIGHTSIDE."
"A well-written and well-executed story by first-time author Mark Tullius. It reads like a gritty, postmodernism novel similar to Blade Runner or A Scanner Darkly. Very interesting character development and plot elements, especially since the protagonist can't hide anything. A quick and fast read that keeps you glued to the pages." - eNovel Reviews
