    Geoffrey Barnett is a photographer. Due to a mysterious trauma in his past, he has, for many years, been unable to photograph people. When Kimberly Yates suddenly enters his life, Geoffrey's world is turned upside down. She nurtures him back to life - emotionally, mentally, and sexually. Eventually he is able to photograph her. Then she disappears, like a puff of smoke, as if she were just a dream, a vision that Geoffrey has conjured up.

    What did you love best about Blind Side?

    A photographer is put into an action thriller mystery where he does an excellent job of unweaving a very complex crime conspiracy. This book has been out of print for a number of years by an author that was quite popular in his day. William Bayer writes very dark novels. This is true Noir at its very best. Let's not ruin it by saying much more than the story unfolds at a very fast pace and is highly interesting and compelling. It has a breath-taking ending. Finally, there is some nice inside information on professional photography art and technique that enriched the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hard to say, all of the characters are richly drawn, but Kimberly stands out. She is not what she appears...let's leave it at that.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. This compares very favorably. Dick Hill is one of the top three or so best narrators. His voice just pulls you along. You want to listen to him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but I can't spoil it for you. Let's just say that futility comes to life.
