In Thailand, two men hire some modern-day pirates to hijack a Russian freighter. It is appallingly easy, and the ship sails, undetected, toward the western coast of North America.

On the Bering Sea, the USS Sojourner Truth, a Coast Guard cutter, patrols the Maritime Boundary Line. The seasoned crew, dealing with a high volume of ocean-going traffic, is finding that choppy seas are making their efforts even more difficult.

In Washington, D.C., a CIA analyst traces the sale of black market plutonium. As the pieces fit together, he realizes that a terrorist attack is under way on a valuable, and vulnerable, American target. He also sees that the Sojourner Truth is sailing right into the attack, putting his estranged wife, the second in command on the Sojourner, at the heart of an international crisis. Relentlessly gripping and frighteningly plausible, The Blindfold Game is the pinnacle of Dana Stabenow's award-winning career.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 2/7/2014

    " Love Kate Shugak. Love Liam Campbell. Not too crazy about this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jayne Yenko | 2/6/2014

    " good, but not as good as the series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bruce | 2/5/2014

    " Interesting mystery involving the CIA, Coast Guard and a Korean terrorist. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bcoghill Coghill | 2/4/2014

    " Spies, terrorist and Dirk Pitt like hers. Not my sort of novel. Stopped after 6 chapters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Dickison | 1/31/2014

    " A fair spy thriller. The first 2/3 of this book is often slow and boring, but it has a bang up ending which helps rescue it from the scrap list. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stella | 1/21/2014

    " I have read and enjoyed several of the Kate Shugak stories. I was a little disappointed when I ordered this online from the library, received it and found it wasn't Kate Shugak. But it turns out it is really a clever and complicated mystery about terrorists. Everyone is so focused on the Taliban and Al Queda they neglect to consider the threat that comes from other countries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 1/20/2014

    " Good mystery for a day off or to take along when traveling. Built around the fears and tensions of our post-9/11 world, the story involves a complicated plan to launch a dirty bomb, the lone CIA agent who figures things out but can't get anyone to believe him, and the crew of a Coast Guard cutter that is the only thing between the terrorists and their target. Oh yeah, and one of the officers on the cutter is the estranged wife of the CIA guy, just for good measure. It starts out a little slow as the various plot threads get established, but builds to a dramatic finish on stormy seas. A fun read for a lazy afternoon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 1/20/2014

    " This was very engaging and interesting. Coast Guard and terrorists - not something I would have expected to get into. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 1/16/2014

    " A good story. I will read more from this author. Very well-written, true to life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/30/2013

    " I prefer the Kate Shugak books. This was a competent thriller. Highlights include the details about Coast Guard operations, some entertaining digs at intelligence inefficiencies/bureaucracy, and Arlene. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy Kelly | 12/11/2013

    " Brilliant book. The story is just on the edge of plausibility which makes for an even more chilling experience!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 11/23/2013

    " Loved it! One of Stabenow's best. "

    " Very good action novel. International intrigue. Takes place in the Bering Sea. Threat to the security of Alaska. I don't want to give the plot away. Must read if you like action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 8/7/2013

    " A little slow starting, but really good story of an CIA/Coast Guard collaboration to thwart an attack on the U.S. in Alaska, but the head of the CIA doesn't believe it, so a husband/wife team are on their own. I plan to read more books by Dana Stabenow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noelle Rogers | 6/28/2013

    " Great suspense. She writes to where you feel you are there. Great reminders of Alaska. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 6/4/2013

    " Very Good; stand-alone about a CIA operative who discovers a plot to launch a dirty bomb at Anchorage and a Coast Guard crew, including his wife, who assist him in taking the terrorists on "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherri Vigil | 5/29/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim Ricker | 5/20/2013

    " Another great book by Dana.
    This one uses the Coast Guard as a back drop. I learned alot about this branch of the armed forces.
    This is part spy novel, part mystery.
    Really a fun read. "

About the Author
Author Dana Stabenow

Dana Stabenow was born in Anchorage and raised on seventy-five-foot fish tender in the Gulf of Alaska. She knew there was a warmer, drier job out there somewhere and found it in writing. Her first science fiction novel, Second Star, sank without a trace but has since been resurrected as an e-book. Her first crime fiction novel, A Cold Day for Murder, won an Edgar Award, and her first thriller, Blindfold Game, hit the New York Times bestseller list.
