Summary
An epidemic of blindness strikes a city and the result is chaos, the government issuing shoot-to-kill orders. Much of the action is seen through the eyes of a woman who claims to be blind so she won't be separated from her husband. A look at how people behave under stress. By the author of The History of the Siege of Lisbon
