Investigator Kendra Michaels -- whose former blindness has left her with uniquely insightful observational skills -- must put her life on the line to catch a terrifying murderer setting his sights on some of society's most vulnerable in this electrifying new novel from the #1 New York Times and Edgar Award winning writing duo Iris and Roy Johansen.
Dr. Kendra Michaels, blind for the first twenty years of her life before gaining her sight via a revolutionary surgical procedure, is a renowned investigator known for her razor-sharp senses--honed during her years in the dark--and keen deductive abilities.
Now her skills are needed uncomfortably close to home. Two staff members have been murdered at a school for the blind where Kendra spent her formative years. But the murders are puzzlingly dissimilar: one victim was brutally stabbed, while the other was killed by a bullet to the head. Are the crimes related? Or is Kendra on the hunt for more than one dangerous killer?
With the killer (or killers) still on the loose, Kendra must put her life on the line to unravel a terrifying conspiracy. But Kendra soon discovers that she herself may hold the key to the deadliest secret of all..
I really enjoyed this book. It really sucks you into the story from the word GO. I didn’t realize Iris Johansen had another series. I think the last book I read by her was in her Eve Duncan forensic series. That is a great series too! Check it out if you haven’t picked up one of Iris’s books in awhile. Definitely worth the read!
This is a whole different series and they are already on book seven. Where have I been? I can’t believe I missed so much yummy goodness! Iris and Roy… what a powerhouse team these two are! I am in love with this series. So happy to have a new series to dive into for 2020!
Kendra used to be blind and a remarkable surgery gave her back her sight. But now she is almost like Sherlock Holmes in how she can ferret out clues and pick up on slight sounds, fragrances and nuances the rest of us miss.
This book centers around the institute where Kendra attended when she was blind. Two beloved teachers are dead and she definitely wants answers in a big way. It was never boring to follow the action and I was engaged the entire way through the book. Love this concept. It is right in my wheelhouse. I learned sign language when I was young and a woman I used to work with was deaf and her husband ran the deaf institute. Not exactly the same handicap but similar in nature, I think.
Don’t want to give too much of this away. The roller-coaster ride is so worth it. Just read this and be in awe!
If you love a good mystery suspense thriller, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
