A mystery wrapped in sf wrapped in dystopia best explains Crouch's follow-up to Pines. Two thousand years in the future, the few people who remain are living in a controlled society where they are told whom to marry and where to work. Sheriff Ethan Burke knows it isn't normal that his town, Wayward Pines, is surrounded by miles of tall, electrified fence—and he knows why. Find out what happens when the rest of the townspeople learn the terrifying secret he's been keeping. Paul Michael Garcia's narration maintains the suspense.
VERDICT Recommended for adult fans of dystopian lit as well as Stephen King followers.
