Author Sara Winokur tell’s us, “Because I’m so passionate about travel, culture, and landscapes, it can’t help but be a big part of my writing. When I wrote Double Blind, I tried to integrate the science of genetics and Icelandic culture with the story.”

 

Double Blind: The Icelandic Manuscript Murders takes the reader to rural farmsteads,  icy fjords and the high-tech world of DNA forensics.

Double Blind Book ImageTwenty years after a young boy disappears in the chill of North Iceland, a mysterious poem lands on the desk of his twin sister Brynja, a forensic geneticist, and rekindles her hopes that her brother might be alive. As Brynja unravels the clues, more poems arrive, each bearing dire consequences for those who receive them: the guard of the medieval manuscript of Icelandic sagas that possibly has the answer to her burning question, the prime minister’s secretary, the local pastor. Fighting the visual auras that have plagued her since childhood and now threaten everything she holds dear, Brynja must summon the strength to navigate the twisted labyrinth of the poet’s mind and confront the dark secret buried in her family’s past.

 

Sara Winokur, “Reinventing myself from being a scientist to a novelist has been a huge challenge, but I’m so proud of the result. Double Blind: The Icelandic Manuscript Murders is exactly the book I wanted to write.”
